Re: Booster seats

I don't have the westfailia style cuboard across the top, but I'll happily have a reel sat up top there if it means I could have a 3 way.

Please let me know if you get any info from them.

Re: Booster seats

I have one lap and one 3 point in the back. We always use the 3 point with a full child seat and the lap with a booster. I found the booster actually helps with the belt being more over the top of the thighs rather than around the waist, which is how I am led to believe it should be. So in my experi...

Re: 2nd grinds when cold

Gearbox oil? What is that?

Good reply though, and I guess I should at least look at that. Cheers.

Re: Olympics by van!

It's a shame because I expect at the 1948 ones you could have done just that. I hate the modern world.

Re: Olympics by van!

Just park on one of the roads around the stadiums, I'm sure nobody will mind. Leave a little note to reserve the spot when you have to drive somewhere, most Londoners are nice and will leave the space clear.

Re: no indicaror tell tail

Bad connection in the multi block I would have thought. Sorry to make it sound obvious, but if it works sometimes when you move it, I think you have found the problem.

Re: Wiring a rev counter?

If you have the same number of wires, then you can pretty much assume that green is coil, red is feed and black is earth. White must be internal light by elimination. You could always try just wiring earth and white to a feed, see what happens. Does it look like this one? - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm...
