Re: Are hazard lights a hazard to Moggies?

My car is a '62, so is equipped with the DB 10 flasher control unit but it still has the original factory fitted red rear light combo of side light, brake light and indicator. Presumably it's only worth wiring something up to a DB 10 unit for hazard flashers, if the car has been fitted with the late...

Re: EBAY SCAMMER AT IT AGAIN

Awwh......does that mean my bid of £2.5m has not been accepted then? These scumbags will be back again soon for 24hrs (or less, if eBay get their act together) with another 2,000odd selection of classics, motorbikes, speedboats and motorhomes etc......all very competitively priced of course. :D Grrr...

Re: EBAY SCAMMER AT IT AGAIN

You've no chance, John.......I've just put in a bid for £2.5m :D I'm keeping my fingers crossed :D

I know I say this every time but as much as I abhor these scumbags, I honestly do feel that anyone who falls for such blatant scams deserves all they get.

Re: Headlight flasher

Many thanks to all of you. The 'relay link' was very helpful to me. I've ordered everything I need (connectors, wire, switch etc.) and this afternoon made a bracket for the switch which I'm going to mount behind that lip at the bottom of the dashboard. Watch this space for, hopefully, a successful o...

Thank you very much gentlemen for your help and advice.

Re: petrol pump paranoia?

I'm certainly not a younger member - I passed my test at 18 in my dad's Mk1 Cortina in 1966...so you do the maths. However, I honestly can't remember the sort of fixed 'poster' pump prices to which you refer, Mike. I'm not disputing it in any way, it's just that I have no recollection of them where ...

Re: Which new tyres for a 67 Traveller

I'm no expert by any manner of means on tyres..........or anything else for that matter but I did a lot of reading up and asked advice on here about a year ago when I felt I should change the ageing Firestones on my 4 door saloon. I ended up buying the same Bridgestones as MM mentioned. From memory,...
