  1. Me and Andy are booked into the Horseshoe.
  2. I've used Tayna to replace my old sierra battery, the square terminals are getting scarce and they had them on Ebay at a good price with decent warranty. Best bit, there was an additional discount code to use in the Ebay advert. Came within a day or two for less than 40quid.
  3. They are something odd, 1.95 or 2inch. If you replace go for 1.9 it's a closer size if space is tight. 13open 10 closed is what most replace with as it's a standard length, the zimmers I had were 12.5 open which matches caterham shock lengths?
  4. I'd try swapping blue and black if its backwards the voltage could be dropping when it should rise which may confuse the ECU.
  5. I followed this to shorten my sump, it takes 3.5litres to fill up to max mark. Standard capacity is 3.6 I believe. 12 years on the road and no probs.
  6. Thats pretty much the same as my setup, swirl pot in tank(but on left side), pump prefilter, high pressue filter (near engine), return to tank but directed to pot to help avoid fuel starvation when low(pot on left?). If you touch the hose and it splutters, could be a hose issue, changing the hose should be quick and cheap.
  7. Personally I wouldn't use preinsultated terminals, they are not as strong or reliable as a professional F crimp.
  8. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F123840262160 Talking of crimp tools these are identical to a pair of MacTools crimpers I have, not sure why they show insulated terminals with them, they are for F crimps. At £5 might be worth a punt.
  9. Free to good home, unused/never fitted 2B stainless dash panel. If you need it, you'll need to collect from Coventry.
  10. Good luck with the diploma Steve, got to do the important stuff first. I'm finishing my degree course in May 2020 so I'll have some free time to work on my car. I'll be expecting a detailed write up in the club mag that I can follow to convert mine.
  11. Steve it must be done by now, hows it coming on.
  12. Finally got to the bottom of tne issue. Annoyingly I've lived with it for many years but having to use the car for work for a week as my daily is in the garage (another long story of dpfs etc) really brought the issue to a head. So got home yesterday and had some time to fettle so measured the temp sensor resistance while car was hot, initially got 400k and a bit later 120k so well stuffed should be 3k ohm. Swapped with the spare and tick over is great stays at around 900 rpm from cold. Bench tested the old sensor with a cup of boiling water started ok at 35k then dropped to 3.5k worryingly ok, then after a short time it went haywire jumped to 35k, 120k dropped to 25k so in the bin it went. Next job is to switch back to the 82deg thermostat so I dont cook on a hot day.
  13. Hi Stu thanks for that, google let me down trying to find any info.The sensor on the car was 55k when cold but not had chance to test hot. I have another one that read 35k at room temp and drops to 3.5k in hot water from kettle so looks like thats a good one. I'm thinking both sensors should read the same as car was stood for few days.
