Sabre driving lamps - when do they come on?

Jim suggests that the Sabre has front fog lights rather than driving lights?

Sabre driving lamps - when do they come on?

F14 is B6. I have power from the switch S19 and nothing getting to thefuse, so looks like there may be some loom damage.

Bogging at 4000 rpm

It isn't a problem for me to send it to you! I have been trying to find some AQF anywhere in France for Eric, but have drawn a total blank with that too. Looks like a business opportunity exists for a classic supplier in France. ;-)

Sabre driving lamps - when do they come on?

Thanks. looks similar to the SS1 then. I have fuse B6 intact and feeding power to the red/yellow brings the lamps on. There is no power onthe fat red, the other side of the fuse. The switch has a thinner red as an output which is live but nothing between the two. There must be a joint there or a rel...

Sabre driving lamps - when do they come on?

Sorting out an M reg Sabre 1,4. There appears to be no power to the lamps under any conditions. When are they meant to illuminate please?

Essex head gasket failed?

The bubbling is normal, it is the coolant expanding. This is why the cap has a return valve, as the engine cools it creates a vacuum to draw it back in again. As it is open to atmosphere there will always be some evaporative losses.

Essex head gasket failed?

I've been losing small quantities of coolant on every journey for a few years now and replaced the entire cooling system one bit at a time, then had it tested (pressure/ gas emissions) for head gasket failure but the garage said all was fine. Yesterday I did a 120 mile round trip and at the end I o...

Mechanical fuel pump problem - Essex engine.

Got it sorted. No matter what I did, there was no pumping so resorted to filling the float bowl, starting the engine and feeling for the cam eccentric with the pump lever. Once the pump was bobbing away I nipped it up with the thin gasket. Never had one play me up like that before and I have done a ...

Yes, the colours (bar the red) are correct and I have seen those potted regulators before.

If it is an A4LD then ignore my comments as it should be ATF Dexron III of course!

Propshaft Query

When I removed the prop shaft on my SE6 I just drained the gearbox. Easy really. Regards Terry H hi, thanks for that, but i don't really fancy draining the new ATF and either binning it ( it was quite pricey) or putting it back in (risk of introducing dirt as well as being a bit of a fiddle). If yo...

Propshaft Query

It just slides out of the tail end. Refitting it needs to be exactly positioned right. Try twisting to get the gear to mesh and it will slide home easily. If the car is relatively level, the oil may just dribble slightly, nothing to be concerned about. The only way to avoid it is to use an old props...

Mechanical fuel pump problem - Essex engine.

Got a strange one... The standard mechanical fuel pump was removed from a known good engine and used in one that I have just replaced the cam in. Initially (as per the original fit) I had no insulator gasket fitted and got no fuel delivery. I took it out and operated the lever a couple of times and ...
