  1. The easy answer is to ask GBS. They IVA these all the time- buy the time you mess around changing this and that one phone call will get you a pass.
  2. You can buy them from GBS.
  3. This is the original throttle linkage

  7. Rear passenger side has LEFT hand thread. So tightens same way wheel goes round {if driving forward]
  8. On my M5 I have a tracker by ‘TRACKER’ and with one -phone call I can disable the engine was told if you say shut it down now they will shut it down weather it’s doing 10pm or 110mph. I also have one on my Zero that I can remote cut the engine from my App and it shows me where the car is.
  9. If your running the MINI wiper motor replace the park switch located on the motor -when it becomes faulty it sometimes causes a straight to earth popping the fuse.
  10. Ok if it’s out of an auto you need to change the crankshaft position mount. The auto puts the crank sensor 2 teeth out You can get them on eBay or GBS sells them.
  11. Ok what type of wiring loom do you have ? Home made or off the shelf. m0st gauges feed off one power source- do you have power to them ? if yes then they need an earth - do you have one of them ?? Everything else is a sender or a light
  12. Are these not £450 from race line ??
  13. Check this out. Might help. eBay 393400137949
  14. I believe GBS sells them
  15. Are you having it done professionally? My professional hunter laser set up comes with adapters so i can hang the 3D pads off the wheels or fit clamps that attach to the rims.
  16. Agree 1000%. Was just trying not to pee on his parade as the sound I can hear through my speakers is very distorted I bet a full rebuild on a pinto these days ain’t cheap.
  17. Ok. Take off the fan belt and start the engine. Is the noise still there.
  18. Hard to tell listening to my iPad but did you rebuild the engine ~if so was the oil pump drive refitted in the bottom of the dizzy ~although without it it would have seized by now. What oil are you running.
  19. No. Test without the screen ~ fit screen /wipers etc after

    Fuel line

    The AA are already stating if your car breaks down and you have filled up with E10 they will not respond as it’s not a break down but “user error “ lets see if in the coming months we start seeing posts on car suddenly running rough
  21. It will sell much easier with an MOT. Get one of them insurance for 24hr policy’s and take it - £50 can make the difference between a sale and an “I’ll think about it “.

    Pinto questions

    Find a local rolling road -by the time you buy a timing light etc etc someone that knows engines will find this in minutes even if you find the problem and get it running better by the sounds of it you will still need it put on the rollers so why spend money on buying bits when it has to go on the rollers anyways!
  24. Coughing back through the carbs is a sign there running lean - does it cough when always cruising as in if at 1800 rpm or 4000rpm on light throttle or If it’s just at the 15-1800 rpm range then it’s the transition phase. The zetec was a nightmare for this ( don’t know what engine you have ) and Weber drilled 3 progressive holes to try help the process but it never 100% fixed the problem the only way to 100% eliminate it is to go full management but in the mean time you might need to adjust your driving style
