    replied to P700 tripod headlights on a 65 Mustang
    Always impatient, I've ordered the lights and also some old style Lucas bullets and black single plus double connectors to splice and dice the wiring to ground and to divert the 12v to the sidelight bulb. These are useless connectors from my MGB experience as they need regular sanding to maintain a...

    That's good to know. I'll buy in a pair of the P700's and look to fit those sometime in the Summer when its a tad warmer. If I can recover this thread I'll post up some pics before and after so people can see if its something that would appeal to them or not.

    P700 tripod headlights on a 65 Mustang

    I was browsing the US sales ads for Mustangs and one car has tripod headlights that I think look kind of mean (sick if you are under 30). Has anyone fitted a P700 conversion including moving the sidelight up into the headlight. That must just be an easy wiring mod to do and gets the sidelight away from...

    replied to Cranking with ignition in position 1
    You'd imagine it has to either be a faulty switch or the wiring not correct onto the switch as all the switch does is feed power to the solenoid which is what it is doing on position 1 rather than position 2.

    This link may help?

    replied to 71 - 73 Exhaust
    I had to ask my wife to give me her family heritage tour.

    My wife's grandfather sold the family firm to Cheswick and Wright who then were acquired by TI who in turn were bought out by an American holding group Arin who then closed the factory around 20 years ago around the time that Rover...

    replied to 71 - 73 Exhaust
    There are plenty of exhaust fabricators around, my father in laws father actually had an exhaust plant in Blackpool that supplied the likes of Austin and Morris in the day but that's been closed 20 years now. You'll find a fabricator will usually be cheaper than a parts importer. As an example MM are...

    replied to Rebuilding a 65 original steering wheel
    I've had a look at the wheel again this morning and worked out how the horn is set up either side and through the wheel centre boss. I think I can have a crack at rebuilding the missing screw platform by making a metal 90 degree spatula that I can feed through on the horn button side to build a wall...

    replied to V8 engine vibration
    Replacing engine mounts is a fairly cheap and easy thing to do. Just don't do what I did and forgot to remove the heater hoses from the engine as lifting the engine off the mounts took out the heater core with the hose stretch. Replacing the heater core was a harder job than fitting new mounts.

    Rebuilding a 65 original steering wheel

    Colin (black66) very kindly sent me free of charge his old 65 wheel that I am hoping to refurbish to then fit onto my car; replacing a wooden wheel. The wheel itself is in really good, easily restorable condition.

    The issued with the wheel arise around reinstating a working horn and I'm...

    replied to multi-car insurance rant.
    SAGA are good for oldies and have good reviews. I have had multicar policies with Admiral, Esure and Hagerty. Hagerty underwrite for Hiscox who also score high for customer service. All have taken my no claims years on renewal and putting 4 or 5 cars on one policy has worked out cheaper on the initial...
