    replied to Diff Oil
    When I filled up a dry diff (new posi unit) on a 9* it took a little over 2l. When I have drained and refilled its about 1.5 litres, probably because the diff has no drain plug so sucking out seems to leave a fair amount sitting in and around the diff as opposed to a cracked and apart fresh build.

    replied to Handbrake cables missing
    There are ways to setup like a modern car with handbrake shoes inside the rotor on the discs to act as the parking brake.

    replied to Garage Recommendations - 70 Won’t Start
    Easiest way to check a coil is to measure the resistance and see if its still in spec. If its a blaster coil that would be around 1.5k ohms if its an original fit spec that'd be around 3k ohms. Then the next check is the feed voltage into the top of the coil with ignition on and the earthing integrity....

    replied to Sale of Petrol cars now banned from 2030
    Pay per mile makes sense as cars whether they weigh in at 3T or 1T do minimal road damage compared to 40T trucks. The vlogger has trouble talking about the future when he constantly berates gas guzzlers at the same time as talking on the pretext of petrol and diesel cars being phased out.

    replied to Squeaking Upper control arm 1965 Coupe
    Check to see if there is a grease nipple at the sides of the control arm. If there is pump some grease in. If there isn't then you could try some penetrating oil as a temporary fix until you get some arms with 90 degree grease nipples to make servicing easier.
