Re: Electrical Gremlins become too often

This thread is confusing me, earlier in the month you did say He (meaning your car) has got a loom to go with him to a new owner. That’s what prompted my suggestion that you might get a refund on the loom. Apparently there is no loom. The plot thickens :D

Re: Electrical Gremlins become too often

If you don’t intend fitting the loom, you could possibly get a refund from the supplier.

Re: Which Loctite threadlock to use?

I don’t use spring washers in this application, just plain ones but as Phil mentioned if you use want to use spring washers put the plain ones on first.

Re: Which Loctite threadlock to use?

I don’t know the numbers but there are various strengths, ie medium, high, etc. I wouldn’t use the strong variety in fact I wouldn’t use any on the nuts you mention. In fact I would give the threads a smear of copper grease. It’s unusual for the nuts to come loose.

Re: Cross-member bolts.

When you fix the crossmember issue, you would do well to take the opportunity to source some original parts and put that linkage arrangement back to standard. I don’t know how keen you are to go any further but sorting out that hole someone has hacked out would be an idea, apart from a structural po...

Re: Cross-member bolts.

The crossmember problem can be better fixed by dropping a 6mm plate, (covered in grease or similar) with the appropriate threaded holes, into the chassis leg, after removing the remaining nut retaining cages ( the bottom of the leg needs to be flat and clean) The torsion bar can be levered to give c...

Re: New headlight fitting

Keep your peaks, it’s your car, just because I and others don’t like the things shouldn’t worry you. A lot of threads go off subject and in doing so can be quite interesting. You shouldn’t be so sensitive about it, and as for a recent post of yours, now rightly removed, well that was downright rude....

Re: Fitting failure of water temp sensor adaptor - what went wrong?

In your initial thread you said the threads looked different, knowing that, I’m surprised you fitted that particular adapter. Doing so would at least have caused that leak and probably had something to do with the breakage.
