This is the one were you remove the distributor and turn it hearing the injectors click etc?
Yes, that's the one. There's another way of testing it (with multimeter). Both methods are mentioned in this thread.

Error code 21 and power transistor

dizzy or AFM first? If you've checked and cleaned the AFM, I'd be tempted to leave that for now. Just ensure the connection is firmly in place. If it sounds like it's running on 3 cylinders, could it be a blocked injector? I'd do a quick dizzy test. (I'm sure i've linked to it elsewhere.) It isn't ...

Sprouts!

Battered sprouts anyone? Dunkeld chippy offers deep-fried Christmas dinner Fish bar owner Scott Davie, 43, said: "People think they don't like Brussels sprouts, but they're always overcooked.

Likewise. Crank angle sensor in the dizzy failed on me with similar results. Some approaches to testing it are documented in this thread.

More stupid questions: axle stands, fuel hose and...

Although, I am favouring the cheating way of cutting the old one down the middle Downside of this approach is, if the existing belt is incorrectly fitted, the new one will be too. (There is a thread in which the bad running was due to an incorrectly fitted belt - a notch or so out.) Similarly the p...

Finding/seeing the pulley timing marks (so you can dab paint on) can be a job in itself with everything in situ. You'll definitely need a torch. Not sure what other peoples approach is, and I'm not sure if it's recommended, but I put the car in gear, handbrake off, got a piece of rope on the tow hoo...

No problem. As you can probably guess, it’s something I’ve done a good number of times. :D I got the spark plug leads mixed up myself earlier this year - I was convinced I had the order right, but I’d swapped 3 and 4. Unsurprisingly it ran like a dog. Have you checked the timing?

pop-up headlights

The Triumph based Glenfrome Delta from 1977
I like it. Almost like a scaled down Owen Sedanca Jag.

Looks very nice. Might want to add your location - it could just spur a prospective buyer in to action. :D

Don't know unfortunately. However, I do know there are 2 belt variants, dependent on the pulleys fitted - a V belt or a ribbed, wider belt, as mentioned in this thread.

No problem Dom, the more the merrier. Thanks for the link re the resistor - I'll check again, but I'm pretty sure I don't have anything between the gauge temp sender and the loom. Perhaps been fitted at the gauge end? Unsure where the 'normal' location for it is.

Thanks Phil - so I assume my gauge behaviour is normal.

Long time lurker and once again 1800TI owner

Apologies for the link - I keep forgetting not all users will have access to all threads. Funny, I replaced my gauge temp sender as the gauge wasn't giving any reading (or so I thought). Fitted the new one and it still doesn't move much. It does rise a little, but not as much as I'd expect. Wonder i...
