Front hub bearing replacement

Grease packing should be no more than about half full. Otherwise it can end up in unwanted places when hot.

Help, scimitar won’t turnover

Find the fault, don't start changing things. If the choke is staying on (unlikely) you will see it. Run the engine on the drive with the air filter off from cold. Watch what happens when you press the throttle and pump,it. Watch what happens when it starts and as it warms up. You will be impressed! ...

Help, scimitar won’t turnover

One of the typical cold start faults is due to perished and cracked fuel lines, specifically the ones from tank to nylons.

Phil, That’s really good advice, the advice I was given was slightly different. I wonder would you know if I have my foot on the throttle and then turn her over is that a potential for flood. That’s what I was told to do. I’ll try your way in the morn. Thanks for that. Deano Keeping pressure on the...

Don't let him mess with the carburettor, he should be finding the actual fault rather than doing irrelevant and backward modifications. For the engine to start it only needs fuel, air and a spark at around the right time. Simple basic work with no spotty yoof or laptop required.

Modern engine and gearbox replacement for Se6b?

Simplest is to do a "Middlebridge" conversion. Granada / Scorpio, (assuming they are plentiful there? ) power plant would create a very nice car. The a4LD is a particularly nice gearbox and matches the 2.9i very well. Block is identical to the current one and the gearbox fits nicely. You will need e...

Side repeater indicator unit

The SS1 is longer and narrower. I think that the Rialto/Robin part is from a Fiat, but can't remember for sure. And of course I am talking rubbish! For some reason I was thinking of the sidelight / indicator unit, possibly because I have just sold a few. The side repeater is the same body, however t...

ATF leak from rear of auto gearbox (C3), possibly the propshaft itself?

With the correct level in the gearbox, pulling the propshaft will not result in much loss. As long as the car is level of course. I still think that it is being overfilled, it doesn't take much for it to vent. There is no way that oil can come out of the rear with a yoke pushed in unless the seal ha...

ATF leak from rear of auto gearbox (C3), possibly the propshaft itself?

How are you checking the fluid level? It only takes a little bit of overfilling to blow it out of the vent on the top rear of the gearbox. If it isn't the rear seal, then that is the only other place it could be coming from. The reason that the leak could never be found is that it will stop ejecting...

In my lexicon, the term "chopper" covers every device that chops the feed to the coil. Magnetic, optical or whatever. Think "Hoover or Biro". :mrgreen: I think that is most likely where the issue is going to be, the problem is how to test it. Without a sillyscope, your options are limited to substit...
