Re: Grinding rear brake, the crud i found inside..

Go for the better quality slave cylinders. I fitted cheap ones a few years back , had to change them again a few months later as the seals had popped.

Re: Robsey's Rusty Wreck.

Thanks Robsey, I'm planning on doing doing some bodywork on it next year and we have plans to re trim the interior. I did all the bodywork repairs and re paint outside ( no option) and unfortunately that allowed some moisture to carry on the slow rusting process. I also found that the rustoleum pain...

Re: More horn woes

There appears to be a break somewhere between the very bottom earth connection of the column and the horn . How does the earth from the horn actually connect through to the column .Image

Re: More horn woes

Ok thanks oldie, no wonder I cant find 12v anywhere up there then . So I should have 12 v on one of the connectors down at the horn then . Is that right? Sorry for sounding like a plank.

Re: More horn woes

Earths all checked out ok as far as I can make out. No 12v anywhere.
I'm wanting to know if 12v should be picked up on the horn ring. If not , where should I be getting 12v in the circuit?.

More horn woes

Can anyone confirm that at the steering wheel end of things , with things dismantled , should I have 12v at the black connector with a brown/ blue wire? This connects to the spring connector that makes contact with the ring around the base of the steering wheel . Thanks https://i.imgur.com/8ji2IPm.j...

Re: Inspection hatch detail

Should there be a little bit of stainless J or U section stuck to the panel about here, to stop the spring clip on the inspection hatch scraping the paint off? Pretty sure that one of the SA built vans used to have one :? https://i.imgur.com/CzTKUia.jpg Looked like you were having fun in that pictu...

Replace the bronze bush that the spindle slips into in the engine housing. Easy to do and inexpensive .

Headlight switch

Had the headlight switch fail the other day , the rocker was solid in the off position . Before ordering a new one i thought I'd have a look inside ( I'm a tight git ) Anyway turned out to be a small metal ball bearing that had popped out of the spring loaded indexer type thing, popped it back in, b...
