    Series 1 clock

    Thanks, Phil. By coincidence I came across a non-working Series 1 clock in the garage (when I was looking for something else :)), so I might have a delve into it for interest.

    Series 1 clock

    How does the bezel come off, Phil? Is it just a push/force fit on the can?

    Supporting car on Block paving

    Maybe it depends on the wheel diameter...... A titchy Halfords special might certainly struggle, but a beefy 3-tonner from a reputable company works just fine. Maybe that's why I have no problems at all on 60mm blocks.

    Supporting car on Block paving

    I wouldn't be using steel plates, Pat, as steel on steel can slide. If you want to spread the load, use wood. I usually put axle stands on 1" thick wood, and a short length of 1.1/2" - 2" square section between the underbody and the top of the stand. Re the trolley jack, providing you're not...

    Oh....go on then! The descent to Applecross - including my mate panicking and dropping the camera at 02:50. :) If you use the new 'insert ... menu' you can do insert media and embed the video :)- admin

    The View From The Windscreen

    In May 2018, a mate & I gave Occie's new 3.9 engine a shakedown on a 2-week, 1750 mile tour through Scotland. Many absolutely stunning driving roads, the best of them being the Bealach Na Ba (Pass of the Cattle) which is an old single-track drovers' road built in 1822. The Bealach rises from...

    Suspension Failure

    Whatever works for you, Ron! I only mentioned plain nuts because I mentioned spring washers. And it would be very unusual to use spring washers with Nylocs.

    Odd temp gauge behavior - NADA V8

    Thinking aloud. Given the gauge behaviour is a regular cycle, I wouldn't have thought it's an engine overheat. I can't tell for sure from your post, but was the gauge behaving like this before you fitted the electronic regulator? If so, it would seem to point to either the sensor or the...

    Suspension Failure

    Seconded. My Parts Lists all show 16 off - Spring (not Star) Washers. And plain nuts, not Nylocs.

    Hazard flasher unit

    If you do have to replace the relay, consider going electronic. The quality of the "Lucas" items currently on offer ranges from fair to abysmal. I fit them to all my cars for both indicators and hazards....constant flash rate, and reliably long-lasting. You do need to add a fly lead for earth...

    You'll probably get on better putting a post up on the SD1 forum, Paul. Don't forget the bellhousing, if you're not already so equipped. Good luck! Stan Rover SD1 Club Forum

    S2 Ignition Switch.

    Well, it gets my vote as a deserving's just been a godsend for me. Had cause to refer to it at the weekend as, although the ignition key went in and turned to position II and the blower came on, no ignition or starter and the switch wouldn't release the key . Stripped the lock and...

    Temperature gauge 3500auto 1971

    2200tc electronic ignition

    First off, if an original Lucas distributor is in good condition I'd not even consider replacing it with an aftermarket jobby. Check the shaft for play, and that the mechanical advance mechanism operates without sticking. The vacuum diaphragms do perish with age, but Martin at Distributor Doctor...

    I believe the inner lamps take H1 bulbs.

    What fuses do I need?

    Which way to go.....

    Thanks, Peter. Must say it's been enjoyable building it up. I held the elbows in position horizontally then drilled through both elbow and adaptor (at the rear) to take a roll pin, which stops the elbows sagging. It does mean I have to take both the elbow and adaptor off together, but that's no...

    Which way to go.....

    Had them chromed about 9 years ago by a plater I dealt with through work. TBH, they're looking a little less pristine close-up now. I've got a spare set of rocker covers that I think I'll clean up and paint somewhat like the originals.
