  7. just to let everyone know sorted out the problem it turned out that i had correctly wired the relay but the lead to the +ve at the other end had become detached from its supply. reconnected and hey presto sorted. phil
  8. I know i will get some stick but have been remounting my relays onto a nice new relay holder. this meant that i had to disconnect the wires. whilst i thought i labled up what whent where i must have labled the fuel pump relay incorectly as i dont get any power to the pump. Have checked the operation of the pump and its working ok so have eliminated that. Does anyone out there know what wire should connect to which pin? ps have the pinto 2.0l efi injection. helpful suggestions appreciated. Phil

    Ditto Dampertec no info needed for my 2b+. again got u brackets from Mac 1 see their web site at www.mac1motorsports.co.uk I think they were £2.50 ish. Again they have supplied to a lot of guys so will know exactly what you are talking about. phil
  15. Dont know if all areas do it but Sheffield did the build up inspection before SVA. Nice man even came out to my house for the inspection for a cuppa and a chat. He even gave me direct dial tel number for me to ring to let him know when passsed SVA so he could arrange for all the paperwork to be ready by the time i had driven from SVA test centre to DVLA office. True to his word everything was waiting no need for a ticket to join a que etc. How about that for service. Just popped along to Halfords and had a number plate made up - on the road fully legal. Anyone out there comming up to SVA may be worth checking with your DVLA office to see if they will do a build up before SVA it certainly made life easy for me. The guy in Sheffield seemed to like the idea of a trip out of the office. Phil
  16. There is also a south yorks meet usually first wed of the month. Meet at the fox house on the hathersage road but for august we are looking at a different location to meet. If you are interested watch for a post near the time. nb we usually get around 5 / 6 hoods turning up. phil
  17. hope to make a showing but my youngests 18th birthday so not sure what we may be doing. phil
  18. I put small central heating lagging (the foam type with a split in it) around the bottom edge and then put some leathercloth over the whole thing this is an easy solution. After SVA changed over dash to something that looked more professional. The inspector told me at the time that any 'padding' on the bottom edge needed to be permanantly fixed ie glued but as it was covered this was not necessary. phil
  19. You will also find out that somewhere else it tells you that with the new chassis you dont have to cut so if you can fit i suggest you dont cut.
  20. Nick hope they are able to suggest something / sort you out. phil
  21. hope to see you should be a nice evening as well
  22. great show. A big thanks to nigel for getting my wipers running before i set off home as i certainly needed them. phil
  23. i recently became aware of the Halfords Trade Card. This gives up to 80% savings on parts / tools etc. The savings are well worth having. They seem to be available to motor mechanics and you need to be able to prove you have the qualifications. At leaast one person claims to have got a trade card thrrough membership of his car club (dont know which one). With up to 80% discount on offer has anyone at RHOCAR heard about this / got a trade card on the basis of membership? phil
  24. roadsure for me £174.98 fully comp but did not ring round as it seemed ok at the time. phil
