Fitting a brake reservoir / header tank

Can anyone advise how the Brake Header tank kit is fitted? Where does the reservoir need to be fitted and how is this plumbed into the brake system?

Many thanks in advance

Re: Alternator Pulley size

Thanks all for the advice and information. The Alternator is putting out 14v when the lights have been left on and charged the battery to 13v. Previously the voltmeter in the car would show 13v when the car was running normally but is only registering 12v now, a separate Multimeter is giving the res...

Re: Alternator Pulley size

Thanks Bob.

Yes it was an alternator for alternator swap. I was basing my comments on the voltmeter fitted in the car.

Not sure where/ how to measure the voltage output. Can you advise?

Thanks

Alternator Pulley size

I have just fitted a new alternator from Bull Motif. The new pulley is smaller than the old one.

It is charging, based on the Volt meter but doesn't seem to be charging as fast as the old one did. Will swapping the pulley over solve the problem?

Thanks

Re: MMOC 40th Anniversary Charity Marathon

When Branches have had their events and collections is it best to pay the money into a members account so that they can then pay the money over through "Just Giving". If they are a tax payer then they can increase the donations by 20% by using Gift Aid?

Re: Seat Paint/Dye

I have just used TRG Vinyl Paint in Scarlett to recolour the Cherokee Red seats in my minor. It is an excellent colour match.

About 6 cans of 150ml will do all the seats.

LED Lamps

Has anyone fitted LED lamps to their Minor? If so which lamps did you replace and where did you get them from?
Also how effective are they?

The Ship was closed for refurbishment and we found a much better location at The Coach and Four, with a bigger room and better facilities.

Convertible window Frames

The paint work on my convertibles rear 3/4 Window frame keeps catching when the hood is raised or lowered. I have seen Stainless Steel frames which would stop the problem and in deed match the door frame. Does anyone know where these can be bought?

Can you say if the change of insurer from Red Star to RSA is the driver for these Premium increases and why you have changed the underwriter?
