Head lights, side lights, full beam!!

One other piece to the puzzle... when the full beams are operated by the flasher.... the outer light stays on!!! If you're saying that when you use the flasher, the nearside outer goes out, then you have a blown main beam filament in the nearside outer - when you use the flasher, all 4 mains should...

Car turns over but wont start (No spark)

I thought standard non-ballast systems had a 3 ohm coil, and ballasted systems used a 1.5 ohm coil with a 1.6 ohm ballast resistor (all figures approximate). An exception to that, I think, is some special electronic systems (capacitive discharge ??) which need a special coil? Assuming this is a stan...

Mobile Firefox issues PM's

Hi Mike, received your message Ok. I've sent you a PM test reply as well, but this time on 4g. It seems to have gone ok too, though there seemed to be a good signal, which may help?

intermittent loss of lots of dashboard electrics

Philhoward mentioned the ignition relay. where is it - if it is easily accessible i would be tempted to replace it first anyway to rule it out. It's one of the three relays that you'll see in front of you if you take out the lining of the glove box (two screws - one each side). You could either fin...

Oil pressure question

The dizzy rotates clockwise, and it is attached to the drive to power the pump, so the drill should emulate the dizzy.

Hmmmm. Well, my Firefox version (on the phone) is 68.1 I'm not sure if that's the latest version for this application, (a google search seems to come up with several numbers, but not higher than that) but I thought it would be up-to-date as it's supposed to prompt me if it needs updating. I do have ...

Oil pressure question

If you're concerned that there might be a problem, you could remove the dizzy and use a socket on the end of a long extension fitted to an electric drill to spin the oil pump drive until the pressure builds up?
Probably a good idea to tape the socket onto the extension, so it can't drop into the sump?

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

When you've got a racing car, a GTE must make quite a good support vehicle. When your name is Joe Macari, you tend to operate at a different level to most people......
