  1. Hi guys, just seen an interesting 'Hood' up for sale on Facebook. Had a close look at the pics and looks pretty good from what I can see, a decent project for someone. They are only asking £1,500. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1688383694671964/

    Kit fuel tank

    Yeah we had no problems with our original tank going through IVA, only thing the checked was the breather pipe and that it was secured with locking washers.
  3. If you drive the vehicle to the IVA test center, how does it work. You have no registration number. Do you need MOT first? How do you work the insurance with no road tax?
  4. Is it IVA nessasary to have a warning light on the dash to indicate whether it is charging or not? As I have a voltmeter on the dahboard.
  5. Anyone in south Devon / South Hams with a trailer i could borrow / hire for the 15th and 16th of September as my IVA test has finally come through?

    IVA Insurance

    Couple of questions before my IVA test next week. Do I need to get a garage to inspect it, if I am towing the vehicle on a trailer? Do I need to insure the Kit car?
  7. Jez, I have tested all the wires between the two switches , I cannot find one that loses the feed. This may be because on the early Sierra they had no reason for a not using a permanent live because fog lights were allowed on side lights.
  8. I could possbly take a live feed off the dip headlights feed, but should the Fog lights also work on main beam?
  9. Still having trouble finding the correct feed for my fog light. Acording to the IVA it now needs to lose a feed when on sidelights. I was told on a previous thread (which I cannot find) that I should take it from the black and white wire between the light switch and the dip switch. I have tested all the wire between both switch and none of them lose the feed when on sidelights. The wiring loom is off a sierra 1984. Any help would be much apprciated. Neil.
  10. Does anyone know the correct torque settings for a 1984, 1993 Pinto head. I have tried the net and had various options.
  11. It's nice to know I am not the only one that has done this. However, I seem to have damaged something as the engine will not turn over. Taking the head off today. I really did not want this as I am so close to the IVA.
  12. Just watched a u tube video. This is the first time I have set the gaps on an overhead cam engine. I set the gap between the valve stem and the follower. It looks like I should have set it between the follower and the cam. Will reset now and see if I have done any damage.
