Re: Starting problem - please help

Is the firing order right? It should be 1-3-4-2 going anti clockwise when viewed from the top. If the distributor is fitted correctly, No 1 plug lead on the distributor should be nearest to No 1 plug.

Re: Bonnet ID

From the profile of the rear edge, I'd say it's the later type bonnet, BUT, it's the not so common LCV version, (unless the holes for the side mouldings have been filled in).

I think the Clarke one I have (from Machine Mart) is a rebadged Draper kit - it looks identical. It's a bit fiddly to use compared to the "Professional" flaring tools, but it does the job at a fraction of the price, and isn't the sort of kit you use everyday, so I can live with its quirks. I agree t...

What most motor factors describe as "copper" IS Cunifer, it's an alloy of copper, nickel and iron, hence the name CuNiFer. - Cu = Copper, Ni = Nickel, Fe = Iron.

So is Photoshop still on your old machine? If so, you can retrieve the serial number - if you go to b...

There may be a folder on the CD with the serial number details. There is on my copy of Photoshop 6, but I don't know about earlier versions. Is it the full version or LE?
