Having said that there were after market electronic systems that retained the points as a switch, thereby prolonging the points life as there was only a tiny current running thro...

Re: Wing mirrors

I'm trying to remember - door mirrors on your car? If they are like mine here should be grub screw on the chrome bit which may be all it is, but I would take it off and check the plastic mount on the door. If the part the grub screw locates on is worn - and they do - then you may have to turn it rou...

Get a second person to help you!

Re: Engine pull with gearbox still in place

Yes it can certainly be done, and I have done so but about 40 years ago - so can't remember the detail for any tips.
