Hi Alan,

It's a 1600, I believe? If so, assuming the oil level is correct, the tappets can take a while to refill if they're past the first flush of youth and not been run for a while. It might take until the engine has warmed a little before they quieten down (when the oil starts to thin).

Smith Industries "EVE 1101/01"- module in dash (SE5a) ...another 10V voltage stabilizer? (but this time in the dash)

That is the low fuel level warning unit. Works in parallel with the existing gauge to basically turn the low fuel lamp on and off with a degree of damping (unlike the later SE6 one which can get rather annoying).

SS1-C686CCR

Well, as we all know a certain virus has basically put pay to the test day, and probably half the planned season. Logic dictates that I now have time to pull it to bits and do those bits I may have slightly fudged, properly. Sadly the petrol head in me says keep going to see if it will work first - ...

MOT exemption

I rang to book my van in this morning (it runs out 2nd April), the MOT station told me about the extension. It's for cars tunming out after 30th March. So if yours runs out before then, you still need an MOT test. That's how I read it too. One of mine expires 10th April and 2 more in the middle of ...

Se5a heater control illumination

Looking at the parts book, the harness for the dash changed on the 45xxxx to 93xxxx changeover, although I can't recall any other difference on the dash (aside from the steering lock/ignition switch change)? Oddly there's only one "type" of outer facia listed, in either black or tan which doesn't qu...
