    Calibrating The Oil Pressure Sensor

    If you go down the calibration route, to ensure it is done accurately you'd have to calibrate the whole loop, sensor, cable & gauge. It's no good doing one or the other (or both) as you may have a potential unknown voltage drop between the two in your loom, causing errors. If you have standalone gauge, couldn't you do a comparison at varying rpm (almost like spot calibrations) via a temporary 'T' piece, this will give you a known offset to apply. Simpler than trying to find a suitable resistor or full calibration (& cheaper)

    Superspec Stuttering

    If the ends have a sharp end, I doubt if the lines will need replacing. Just remove and trim up, but trim with a rotary cutter (the type use for cutting copper pipe), then replace into the connector. GBS may have the pipe in stock if you really want to replace it

    Superspec Stuttering

    Just a thought if you are using the standard supplied tank that has the red & white (flow & return) hoses. If you have the supplied red/yellow 'plastic' fuel hoses that push into the connectors, are they: A: connected to the correct ports? (from memory I think the red is the supply) B: have the ends of the hoses been cut with either pliers or side cutters? This may have left a sharp point on the hose that has damaged the seal within the push fit connector C: again from memory, but I think there may be 2 seals (o rings) within the connectors. Have the hoses been checked that they are as far into the connector as possible? It might be worth checking the hose ends and re-seating, but lubricate the ends of the hose with a little fuel before inserting into the connector

    Steering Wheel Replacement

    As Al says, the column is Mondeo, a Mk 1 I think. I considered a removable wheel, but the hub is a 2 part affair, with 1 part permanently fixed to the column with the removable part fixed to the wheel obviously. This does make the wheel sit closer to you as the whole affair is deeper than the Mountney hub originally supplied. Have you considered a flat bottom..............steering wheel as these can be supplied in a slightly smaller diameter which increases leg/belly room

    Jumpy Speedo

    Deano, have you tried re-calibrating your ETB speedo after the re-wire? There are a few methods, but the one I used was to drive for 1 mile at a constant speed. There are instructions on the ETB website if you have lost the instructions

    Wow, that would be one hell of a snowman! 5 car crash at the bottom of our road Wednesday morning, one pedestrian hit by a car. Only then did the council grit the road

    Bucket & Spade Run

    Hi All, A group of us did this a couple of years ago and had a good day out eventually ending up by the seaside in Ramsgate. Unfortunately I cannot make it this year due to a prior engagement, but if anyone fancies a run out with up to 400 cars finally showing up, then here's the link with all required info. http://rommcc.org.uk/bucket%20and%20spade%20run.html Fortunately this year you won't have to dodge the cow poo as the set off point is a car park at a garden centre Cheers Al
