Lockheed clutch master cylinder operation

It depends on the condition of the bore. No point putting new seals into a worn bore, unless getting it re-sleeved. If you get stuck, I stock new master cylinders for 6a onwards.

Top and Bottom Hoses

Quite, the beauty of waterless is the consistent temperature and lack of microboiling effects. Far more important than absolute temperature at one point. Running a few degrees hotter is no bad thing, the heater works better and the engine is more efficient. It's just a shame that so many owners are ...

Top and Bottom Hoses

If you're really serious about better cooling, either go for waterless coolant or fit a fan behind the rad to pull the air Waterless coolant, although I think it a really good thing will not improve cooling nor will it mask an overheating problem. The finest coolant is plain water, nothing else has...

Standard cause of handbrake failure is the linkage that operates the shoes has siezed. Strip it and remove the linkage, you may have a struggle to clean it up. It should be a little sloppy when done. Give it a very slight smear of grease on the pivots too. Both sides need doing.

We think the arial may be a relay as I now hear a dull click/tick when the radio shuts off, coming from in line with the warning cluster lights on the dashboard, but as said previously I'm going to get the thing to retract and disconnect Perhaps you should try Persil instead of Ariel? ;-) It is lik...

Selling my dual fuel, A4LD automatic GTC. New MOT.

Interested in the dual fuel set up, all certificated? That would a great help to my running costs. Nobody will issue a certificate unless they did the whole job start to finish. However, I have had it at the local specialist a couple of times for the new tank to be plumbed in, follwed by setting up...

Re-placing & re-route fuel pipes

My advice is to avoid copper due to work hardening effects. The only way to avoid them is by careful clipping to avoid any vibration at all. So the ideal choice is OEM nylon which you can still buy off the roll. Otherwise Kunifer will do the job. You will need to make a double flare at the ends to e...

Car caps in nylon are available from £6.99 on ebay and the like. Don't be tempted to use anything else at any price, regardless of the promotional blurb promises.

Alternative Alternators

B+ is a high current connection in parallel with the plug. If not wanting to use it, insulate it carefully. The W terminal is a feed to a rev counter on some diesel vehicles. Again, insulate it.
