Re: Gearbox woes

Regarding the whine that you mention, it’s often the case with mixing gears old and new, teeth bed in together in gear sets. Not familiar with your other issues.

Re: Bojo the Cloan

A good example to some would be to come down hard on law breakers, a good example to others would be to let them off.

Re: dead moggy

Very likely, unfortunate but better than a burnt wiring harness. Once you’ve got things sorted, it might be a plan to tidy up some of that wiring, to eliminate future issues or at least make it easier to trace.

Re: dead moggy

Are you saying the engine now runs ? You will need to sort out the lights before you get on the road, especially stop lamps.

Re: dead moggy

It the wires from A1 and A that need to be linked, preferably via a fuse.

Re: dead moggy

Why don’t you do what John suggested, way back. Join A1 and A via a 35amp fuse or fuse wire, bypassing the regulator that has apparent linkage damage. See what happens then, this action is basically taking you back to square one but instead of smoke, if a problem exists, the fuse should blow.

Re: Caterpillar

It captures nature doing its own thing, nice to see, I didn’t realise there was a moth that could hover like that. So many species to wonder at, all have their place and interact to help the planet survive. Pity we can’t join them.

Re: dead moggy

As suggested by martin and geoberni if you get stuck someone actually being there to look with you can be helpful. Other than that a meter is pretty essential, to trace wires and check for 12 volts, and as I found recently on my van wiring. Following a wiring diagram and step by step approach can el...

Re: dead moggy

Your first post mentions the engine stopping when you checked lights, I’m reading that as when you turned the lights on. It might be an idea to check out the lighting wires, could be causing a direct short when activated. If you tried the spots when this happened, look there.

Re: Caterpillar

Yes Phil, I was surprised after doing some research, that the species found its way from hotter climates. I think I have seen the actual moth before with pink areas on its body. It makes me think about life. Why would anyone want to destroy it. Further info from an organisation I contacted earlier, ...

I found this creature today on the pavement, I put it somewhere safe. It will become a Vine hawk moth.
What a beauty!

Re: Pick up seats

I think they are different, something to do with the floor pan shape, plus the passenger seat in the lcv folds down.

Re: 2 stage extending bonnet stay

You’re not wrong with that ! However your original desire to make what you write easier to read, may not be the case for some.
