Front bump stops

Front bump stops

Are you taking about the ones inside the front springs - if so they are shaped to press fit into the top wishbone - spring has to be removed to fit them properly. G clamp and washing up liquid ?

BADGES and aligning doors for my SE6B

Its the lower rear of the door that generally does not fit so the outer skin has to be cut away allowing it to be pushed in until it is flush with the body - not such a hard job but time consuming.

Brake fluid warning lamp

The supply comes from the lamp itself - through the lamp to the ignition switch ( white wire ) First thing to check is the lamp - check that its ok and when the ignition is on there is 12 volts on the white wire to it.

Not much use if you’re over average height unless you’ve dropped the seat rails on the chassis first.

kitten

Ball joints on the front - difficult to get replacements. A lot of Kittens have had the front suspension modified to get rid of them and fit disc brakes instead of the drums which seem to go out of balance quickly - one time you brake it will pull to the right next time it will pull to the left.

Over heating se5a ?

If the rad isn't getting noticeably hot but the engine is then you have to suspect the water pump or the thermostat - easier to change the thermostat first
