I’ve notified moderators of my posts and two posts showing photos have been dealt with but the main a...

Re: Smelly engine

Yes, I would also suggest the last option mentioned, I had a similar issue with a small gap in a tailgate seal, when driving with a partially open window, fumes entered.

You should be able to stop rotation by holding the prop, try it.

Re: Electrical Gremlins become too often

This thread is confusing me, earlier in the month you did say He (meaning your car) has got a loom to go with him to a new owner. That’s what prompted my suggestion that you might get a refund on the loom. Apparently there is no loom. The plot thickens :D

Re: Electrical Gremlins become too often

If you don’t intend fitting the loom, you could possibly get a refund from the supplier.

Re: Which Loctite threadlock to use?

I don’t use spring washers in this application, just plain ones but as Phil mentioned if you use want to use spring washers put the plain ones on first.

Re: Which Loctite threadlock to use?

I don’t know the numbers but there are various strengths, ie medium, high, etc. I wouldn’t use the strong variety in fact I wouldn’t use any on the nuts you mention. In fact I would give the threads a smear of copper grease. It’s unusual for the nuts to come loose.

Re: Cross-member bolts.

When you fix the crossmember issue, you would do well to take the opportunity to source some original parts and put that linkage arrangement back to standard. I don’t know how keen you are to go any further but sorting out that hole someone has hacked out would be an idea, apart from a structural po...

Re: Cross-member bolts.

The crossmember problem can be better fixed by dropping a 6mm plate, (covered in grease or similar) with the appropriate threaded holes, into the chassis leg, after removing the remaining nut retaining cages ( the bottom of the leg needs to be flat and clean) The torsion bar can be levered to give c...
