Horn push

Hi All I’ve a 1967 4 door and recently a garage that I use replaced the indicator stalk . In order to do this he removed the horn and the parts so he could access the nut to remove the steering wheel. The plastic bit that has the brown wire through the middle shattered and I didn’t see him remove it...

Re: Indicator stalk for 1970 Traveller

Hi,
I needed one of these recently and although I’m a bit reluctant to buy from eBay
They do sometimes have things new on there.
Anyway I looked on eBay and there is someone selling them.It came really quickly and
So far has been fine.
Hope this helps

Re: Indicator Arm Problem

Hi thanks for the reply.Could you explain to a non mechanical person like me how you would do that please.
Does it involve taking the steering wheel off or is it done with wheel on.
I have screwdrivers spanner’s etc but obviously with a problem like this I need to get it right.
Many thanks
Steve

Re: Indicator Arm Problem

Hi
Thanks for replying to my problem.
Audrey is a 1967 4 door so no trafficators I’m afraid ,just one stalk and the later model indicators front and rear.
Many thanks

Re: Heater Problem

Thanks for the suggestions. At least I know now that I’m not doing anything wrong in the car etc.It does seem as if something has failed as I was driving in the no heat setting yesterday but it was still hot. At least if I push the lever on the heater to the bottom it helps a bit. Thanks again all S...

Re: Heater Problem

Im gonna investigate tomorrow because when i went out today within about 5 mins it was like a sauna and my left leg was decidedly hot to the touch😌.Somethings in this car have been left to stand etc.Also is it possible that the pull push switch is fitted the wrong way round?

When I’m driving Audrey, a 1967 4 door the heater is blasting out hot air all the time.Now in the winter this is fantastic but in the heat of the summer not so good🥵I turn the fan off an...

Re: Mark on bonnet

Hi All Thanks again for replies. I don’t use a car cover.She has a garage but sometimes she sits outside in the open for several days at a time. It wouldn’t surprise me if it was too much filler . Never mind hopefully I can get the bonnet done and then maybe get the rest of the car done next year. R...

Re: Very intermittent fault

If it is a fuel type problem would it help at all to pull the choke out slightly or would that make it worse. As you can probably tell I am absolutely no good at all with the mechanics of any sort. After all this nonsense finishes with the lockdown I do have a few people who might be able to help me...
