Re: Flasher Unit again

New Unit arrived and installed - working as it should. Strangely, it looks bigger than what was in before........

Re: Carb Heat shield kits.

Are Mr Grumpy stuff still available? I like the idea of his reversing light switch.

Re: WD 40

The company's own website gives a history of the product: https://wd40.co.uk/about-us/ which confirms that it was the 40th attempt that worked. As I suspected, a US American product heavily marketed world wide, no doubt with a profit margin in three digit percentage proportions but as far as the ex...

Re: whining diff

It was not cheap, that is true. I do not remember exactly what I paid so I just had a look in the english ebay - over GBP 400.

Re: Failing seat cushions

That seems to me a good solution, I will have a think about welding some steel straps across.

Re: Failing seat cushions

Yes also from ESM . or perhaps the first time from Newton when I comepletly redid the seats. Same produkt though. It is obviously the standard so perhaps I have installed it wrongly. :(

Re: Differential oil – which type?

About 0,85 litre. Fill it using the spout ( Schlauch) that is contained in the oil bottle until it starts to flow out of the diff. It smells horribly so wear throw away gloves! Recheck the level after a few km.

Yes, I am in Mittel Hessen

Failing seat cushions

When my 69 Traveller was new i.e in its dilapidated second hand "repaired" state, one of the first things I resolved to do was to renew the seats. I brought new covers, the set cushions and the rubber seat base which is held in place on the seat frame by metal hooks. This replaces the original webbi...

Re: Flasher Unit again

The flasher relay may be bolted to the chassis for suppoert but this is not meant to be an earth connection, or?

Re: Flasher Unit again

Thanks for the tip. Have now checked for earth connections as advised and found none. Waiting for the new relay to arrive and try again. Having had faulty units before is too easy an option......

Flasher Unit again

Apologies for bringing this one up again. Firstly. 1969 Traveller. Recently installed a new column switch indicator unit. I had to extend the wires due to it being now LHD. Although the external flashers worked satisfactory, the indicator stalk did not. It used to, even with the old unit, only flash...

Re: Bodges

Oh the underseal cover up! Not on my Morris but on the Triumph I saw that the rear chassis had failed a British MOT on a Tuesday and then after a quick underseal cover up, passed it on Thursday. Spent a whole winter underneath the car scraping all the black stuff off , being vicious with the hammer ...

Re: What we did in the lockdown

My LHD conversion some 4 to 5 years ago left the glove box area unconverted as finding suitable frames proved impossible. Have always had it in mind to make a handed frame but never got around to it until now. Using the RH as a reverse template, I made the frame from hard balsa wood, sealed it with ...

Re: What we did in the lockdown

That's odd to hear that the steering column branch of the wiring could not reach the left side. Was there an obstacle in the way. Before you replace the entire turn signal switch, where was your earth probe when you checked the voltage? If you used the chrome stalk, it's earth path may be the probl...

Re: What we did in the lockdown

I have had the steering wheel off and on many times firstly to install a new indicator switch. As my 69 Traveller has been converted to LHD, the wires are not long enough for a straight connection using the bullets but have to be soldered on to the extension wires. Then the self cancelling did not w...
