Re: New Wipers Needed

I found that with 14" blades I was looking through unwiped area above the rubber, so used 15" last time expecting another 1/2" extra wiped area.

In practice due to offset on the blades it was more like 3/4" extra - just enough for a view in the rain!

Re: Purging the U.J.s...

What Clifford said, plus the important issue is whether the UJ is worn or not. If they are not worn then don't worry.

They should last years.

Re: Compression Testing - Hot or Cold?

I'll stick in a fairly inexperienced thought. Did you try it wet and dry (although as yours were roughly the same you may not need to)? Firstly take the pressures dry then add a drop of oil into the bores and try again. If the pressures increase (the oil should seal the bores) then there are issues ...

Re: Eyeball vent feeder hose

I even managed to reconnect the speedo drive (virtually) first time and it is working! Not a job I like as there is little play in the cable and requires a bit of wrist acrobatics.

(When I got the car is was not properly connected and slipping, underreading the speed.)

Re: Eyeball vent feeder hose

Thanks Johnnydog.

No idea of the length, will try and get out to measure tomorrow (peeing down today).

I assume it runs behind the instruments and not over..........

Re: M O T exemtion.

PAS was standard fitment on some 2000/2500s so will not affect the MOT status.

In fact this could be construed as adding to the safety of the vehicle so is definitely allowed.

Re: J Type wiring

Referring to post #2, lift the trim panel around the gearlever and check the wire in there.

This is where mine went - much easier to fix than crawling under the car so I would try that first.

Re: Water pump query

Just a thought, would more vanes create a higher pressure?
