Re: Steering wheel nut problem

Martin Good advice from ManyMinors , I'm a fan of Plus Gas too. Other things to consider , if it's a case of " no joy ". Ask a local garage to put an Impact socket on it with their air gun. Once loosened , pop the nut back on it's thread. Do it up hand tight. A smear of vaseline , for lubrication , ...

Re: Ignition light

I'd leave the WD 40 on the bench myself. It's very useful for a lot of things. However it is a bit "sticky" after use.It will therefore attract more dust from the carbon brushes and after a while you'll be back where you started.

Re: 803 mark 2 H1 carburetter

Hi Apologies if I'm teaching you to suck eggs at any stage. Is the outside of the carb and it's controls clean and lubricated ? Assuming the relatively new jet and needle haven't been dropped or damaged in any way , was the jet centering done at the same time as replacement or more recently ? Was pr...

It's a plus 1 for an extra fused box. My mate wanted " just one or two " additions to the electrical system when we re-wired his Moggie I put a secondary fuse box inside the car under the dash.

One option for you to consider is a timer relay that will switch off automatically after a certain time. You will need a " beefy" to cope with the electrical load of a rear windscreen.
