Hmmm.....

Being a slant four Dolomite owner this is a familiar problem although on these the solenoid does usually click and the car eventually fire up. On the Sprint I had in the 90s the starter would just stop altogether. I did fit a new original solenoid to effect a cure but they solenoids are no longer av...

Re: Bottom radiator hose - PAS cars

Yes cut the non-PAS hose to suit and, if it was me, I would fit a stainless steel pipe

Re: replacement radiator

That looks a good fitment Michael. The long top hose will comfortably absorb the movement of the engine. I cannot tell from the photo, but I wonder if the radiator is a little low relative to the top of the engine? Obviously if it is so, you simply jack the front of the car up when filling the syste...

Well.....

Hi Chris, below is a link to the clock panel https://www.chriswitor.com/proddetail.php?prod=715555SH I can possibly help with a dash panel but it is from a Dolomite.

Michael

You can get alloy pipes (which are a better choice than steel because they are lighter and won't corrode).
Please go for one with beaded ends.

Aye.....

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/292269035924 Hi, Since my last message I have bought a Suzuki Vitara radiator as shown in the link, it will require some mountings fabricating, the bottom hose is in the correct position and the expansion pipe too, but the top connection will need a flexible hose and I ma...

Re: Aftermarket tachmoeter/rev counter

Only four years later... I have fitted a PFL Mk2 PI dash into my 1972 2000 - just in time for the RBRR. However the one on the dash doesn't work correctly. I believe it's due to me having the 123 electronic ignition fitted and my rev counter is the RVI type. Can anyone recommend a place to convert ...

Yes......

Warm the hose up in hot water.
This will soften it which allows it to slide easily into position.
