Re: carpet underfelt

I brought very similar stuff from ebay last year. Still got to get around to fitting it, just not found time to strip the carpet out. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Car-underfelt-soundproofing-acoustic-felt-sound-deadening-underlay-insulation/182950799448?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m...

Re: Electronic Ignition

I'm confused as to if you have restored all to the conventional points in the dissy, or have fitted an electronic unit?

Re: Size of tubing

I rarely ever use one. Wash off after doing the job, if necessary. I don’t re-use brake fluid, so don’t collect it! Yeah, but it's not the sort of thing you want to spread all over the floor. far better to collect it and dispose of it correctly. I admit the local Tip (aka Recycling Centre) won't ha...

Re: Electronic Ignition

:lol: Well if you rotated them all in one direction and after 3 tries it all worked, then it was basically 90 degrees out in the 'other' direction. Either you got the splines a bit off when dropping the Dissy in place, or it's just the timing of the new Unit. Many people find the Accuspark electroni...

Re: Which Tracker SIM Card ???

Thanks DP I've now got a giffgaff SIM and have got the Tracker working for Text of location. To summarise a long story, I found the Tracker would work on my Virgin contract SIM, which uses the EE network, the same as the ASDA PAYG I was trying to use. I've now been waiting several days for ASDA to e...

Re: Petition to help Wythall Transport Museum continue to run their heritage bus service

Maybe it’s just another extremely politically correct posture? Councils are prone to that kind of thing. :evil: Birmingham City Council have a habit of being nasty people. Here's another petition aimed at them. Fining Blood Bike Riders for using Bus Lanes when they are trying to save lives! https:/...

I'd check (or just replace) the rearmost Core Plug, since that's on the rear face of the Block.

Re: Petition to help Wythall Transport Museum continue to run their heritage bus service

The Museum has approached Birmingham City Council but they appear unwilling to consider an exemption for them on the basis the Museum is running the service for profit not for charity. That's BS! Copied straight from their website, the TRANSPORT MUSEUM WYTHALL is a registered charity no 1167872 . T...

Was the car not a runner before you started this Dissy work?
if it was running, then you may well have fitted the Dissy out of place.

Will be interesting to see how many "incidents " are down to drivers completely ignoring the red X lane closed sign on the gantry even though it is illegal to ignore it. My experience is that countless drivers just carry on down the closed lane and nothing seems to be done. Very much so. On a relat...

Re: NTK 588 Traveller - any info pls?

Hi & Welcome.
It's not advisable to use an email address as a username because of all sorts of security issues. Perhaps an Admin/Moderator can change it for you.

It's possible to get a limited vehicle history from DVLA for a small fee. Search the Forum and you'll find posts about it.

Re: Mystery Overheating

A similar thing happened to me about ten years ago. It was winter and I was just a few miles from home when I was held up in a queue of traffic. A huge plume of steam bellowed out from under the bonnet. " Oh dear " I thought. " Looks like I will have to do some work tomorrow ." I got home and check...
