    Icelert kit and boot mount parts in Norway

    Dim instrument indicator lights

    Both of the ‘arrow’ indicator bulbs in the instruments flash, weakly, when using the indicator stalk in either direction. I’ve just replaced the instrument base unit for a couple of other reasons and hoped it might take care of this, but no. I’ll have a look in the multi pin connectors and the...

    Full lock doesn’t hit lock stop

    Turning the steering wheel to full left lock I can poke my finger between the RH lock stop bolt and the side(?) rod joint. I get 1 1/2 turns of the steering wheel. Full right gives me 1 3/4 turns and the joint opposite touches the stop bolt on the LHS. I can’t see any obstruction. Can the damper...

    Top link bush replacement - results?

    Hi all, Would love to hear from some of you who have replaced the front top link bushes (for OE spec reman or NOS Metalastik ones), how the car felt afterwards, compared to before?

    SU HIF6 throttle spindle WZX1178, pair

    Brand new unused from Burlen. These are not for the P6 as they're too long IIRC for my AUD521s. As the tag says they're WZX1178 replacing WZX1311 RE. They're not expensive so I'm happy to send them to anyone who can use them by post for nowt (or any suggested barter arrangement).

    Adjusting PAS steering box?

    My V8 was converted to PAS but has unequal steering radius by as much as up to half a turn, which is really annoying in parking situations as I'm forced to do three-pointers where I shouldn't. The question is whether I have to pull the box out, centre the output shaft to the rest of it and...

    Funny HIF6 gasket failure

    Hi all, Our friend in Cape Town recently fitted new floats to our V8, as kits coming from Burlen with float chamber gaskets. These proceeded to fail on both carbs having barely been in contact with fuel at all, and started leaking as soon as the engine ran. On visual inspection he said they'd...

    Somebody order a batch of Koni shockers?

    Through the South African Koni distributor I've learnt that Koni NL are producing a batch of some 50 (presumably front) red adjustables for the P6, of which we've secured one as one in my off-the-shelf pair had failed and can't be rebuilt. Anyone know of this? I've no further details of pricing yet.

    "Dry stored" barn find..!

    Browsing on eBay I spotted this, reading the bit about "dry stored for five years". Then I saw the photos... (I presume there's quite some pressure in that pressure washer but still it made me larf.)

    Reman heater hoses and fitment

    Hi all, Tried to fit a remanufactured inlet-to-heater coolant hose to the SA V8, and received a call recently that it didn't fit, that the length was correct but the bends were set 25mm too far forward. They were otherwise correctly spaced, but he had to cut it at the heater end so the rear...

    'S' hub caps - lug nut alternatives

    Given the cost of shipping a set of wheel nuts (in this case to South Africa), does anyone know of any by other manufacturers that could fit the 3500S hub caps? I'm trying to see if they could be sourced locally, and V8 manual cars were only found there as personal imports. Tor

    Bleeding dual circuit (really now!)

    I'm back to a familiar but hated place, and I would appreciate some help. It's where my brakes people are trying to get the brakes right in connection with a fluid change and EU inspection ("MOT"). The guy who previously said the system can't be properly bled without arresting the shuttle in the...
