Re: New fan belt, now have red light

Jenko , myoldjalopy 's advice should sort you out on the loose connection angle. Given the difficulty fitting the new belt , just a thought , you were supplied with the right size fan belt for you car were you ? As you will see from ESM's website there are a number of different sizes : - http://www....

Re: Useing an Ezibleed

The Eezibleed system works well provided you have the right size , tight fitting cap for the brake fluid reservoir. Don't connect up to a fully inflated type. For older cars , max 10 psi recommended. Do a dummy run first of all "dry " i.e no brake fluid in the reservoir bottle supplied with the kit....

Re: Cleaning wiring harness

I've always opted for a new harness.. when the car goes up in smoke from 50 year old faulty wiring .. that's the time to ponder whether saving a few pounds was a worthwhile decision. Back to the question , I've heard of people cleaning the fabric cloth of the loom with mild soapy water and a cloth /...

Re: oil leak at spin on filter housing

Glad Phil has sorted you out.
When you take off the old gasket , make sure the surfaces on the block and spin on adaptor are flat and really clean i.e no old gasket bits still stuck on , making an uneven surface.

Re: Restoring Morris Pickup 1971

Sorry to break the news but a blocked fuel line / tank is usually bad news. I hope you haven't got too much fuel in the tank to drain , if it comes to it. The diagnosis is usually crud in the tank , either sediment over several decades or more probably flakes of rust from the inside of the tank. A b...

Re: Restoring Morris Pickup 1971

A stuck Starter Motor would be my first point of call. I'd disconnect the battery , put a spanner on the Starter Motor pinion to try and release it ( or rock in gear back and forth ). Whilst it's all disconnected I'd work my way through , checking battery voltage with a Multimeter.Then check out the...

Welcome to the Forum. My advice would be to leave the hood up … for the very sound reasons you specified in your post. Never fold down the hood for storage , unless you are sure the fabric is bone dry. It is impossible to fold any collapsible hood without inducing some form of creasing in the bulk f...
