Re: Traveller Tuning

I ended up using an AAA needle and it runs well, nice biscuit colour to the plugs after a run. That was after I fitted the Midget exhaust manifold, previously I had an AAU fitted. It's a compromise really as it isn't a standard set up with all the different components that have been fitted the only ...

Re: Bubble car museum

I was really pleasantly surprised at the exhibits, a real nostalgia trip. Also surprised at the entrance fee, I think it was only £3 at the time.

Re: New fan belt, now have red light

Check the readings with another meter if you can. A guy on the Mini Forum recently had a similar issue and it turned out to be his multi meter reading high.

Re: New fan belt, now have red light

Re: New fan belt, now have red light

After fitting an alternator I found that that space was tight on the inner wing and the king lead was a little short when I mounted the coil on the inner wing so I modified the old bracket that was on the dynamo to bring the coil out a bit. I fitted some spreader washers on the bolts after this pict...

Ah sorry, I misread your explanation. Hopefully it will dry out enough but a quick blast with the sander should sort it if it doesn't

Re: Traveller window woes

Re: Anyone know what these two switches are for?

The socket and switch could possible have been for a parking light, the type that sits over the side window. Have a look behind and see if they are connected to each other.
