Re: Windscreen wiper motor

Just had another go, wired the motor directly from the battery, made sure it had a good earth and it moved about an inch!

But only once.

Reckon bad bushes?

Re: national 2014

Any chance of rain next week?

See my post in the electrical section of this forum and you'll understand why it's a important question for me!

Windscreen wiper motor

Think my windscreen wiper motor has died.

Bypassing the switch and wiring the motor directly to the battery terminals (earth and live) should make it cough into life, shouldn't it?

Andy yours is a mk1 though, (unless Richard has these too) a mk2 column isn't going to be any use to you is it?

Been promised the car will be ready by Friday, hopefully I can finish work in time to collect it.......

If any of the steering columns are left, can I one collect at the Nats?

Re: engine mountings

And change the gearbox mounting at the same time.

Knackered mounts will destroy the UJ's in the propshaft and make your diff leak, the engine/gearbox unit is a lot of weight to be banging back and forwards!
