Re: Dead Eletrics

The best approach would be to turn on the headlights to give the system a load, multimeters draw negligible current and can give confusing results where high resistance connections are concerned. Then check the voltages again with the headlights on starting at the battery. It could be a poor connect...

Re: Teething problems!

Regarding the Green/Yellow wire, for a short period of time they fitted a blocked filter switch and warning light along with the oil pressure switch and warning light both using Green/Yellow wires. The blocked filter switch and light was later discarded but the wiring loom never got up dated so the ...

Re: Teething problems!

The coil is wired incorrectly
The White goes to the negative coil terminal.
The White/Black goes to the positive terminal.
The Green/Yellow shouldn’t be on the coil it should be on the oil pressure switch or the blocked filter switch, if the latter just leave disconnected.

Re: Teething problems!

You have got the wiring wrong on the coil or less likely a faulty coil. If the coil is in circuit it will limit the current at the points. I suspect you are getting the 12V direct to the points bypassing the coil. 12V ignition goes to the negative/SW coil terminal, the positive/CB goes to the points...

Re: passenger side foot well hole series 2

If it’s a hole in the heel area then it is indeed for the dip switch. The switch on LHD cars fit flush with the floor, on RHD cars the switch is mounted on a plinth, well it is on mine earlier cars may be different.

Re: Upgrading my grease gun

As Shropshiremoggie, I had same issue and found unscrewing at the middle of the gun end made releasing from the nipple easier when it was new, (a bit like a drill chuck). I have since tightened up the joint and is fine now. The newness perhaps.
If you need a new gun end Pressol are good.

Re: Starter Motor Woes

In your first clip it does sound like the starter is turning the flywheel or ring gear as the starter motor appears to driving a load. Could be and most likely sheared flywheel bolts or slipping ring gear. If it is sheared flywheel bolts I am amazed you were able to get it to run without a flywheel,...

Re: daft question

Yes it is best to disconnect the coil, it will overheat if the points are closed
Disconnect the one that goes to the distributor then there is not a live wire lift dangling.
