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?

Re: Old misfire - again

What rotor arm do you have? A proper red one with moulded connection?

The riveted ones can cause problems as they heat up (hence the 15-20 minutes?) and then track to earth down cracks in the plastic.

Re: Front windscreen

Nice one!

My only comment would be to suggest that next time(!) the camera is rotated 90 degrees (ie landscape).

Re: Thermostat housing - with temp sensor port

Is it not better to measure the temperature on the engine side?

Say the thermostat fails closed, measuring on the water side would not give any indication of overheating until steam appears, whereas on the engine side the temperature would be monitored throughout.

Re: DRLs

I will be upgrading with a normally closed relay which will open when the sidelights are on.

Just have to await delivery from China..........
