ABS light

As long as difference between front and back diameters is no more than 10% there shouldn't be a problem.Try cleaning the sensor rings(not easy).

Fuel relay

Remove relay and give contacts a good squirt of contact cleaner then work the relay into the socket a few times.Normally cures it.It is worth doing this to all electrical connections throughout the car.It's amazing the difference.

Knocking and holding back end down

Many years ago(oh alright in the 60s) I had an ex-Metropolitan police Wolsely 6/80.This had two boxes welded to the rear axle filled with concrete.It certainly improved the rear end.Here endeth the the lesson.

The reason I'm asking is that I've just stripped a spare reservoir and removed the filter prior to it going for zinc plating.Any joy on my parts yet? Later.Ron.

Power steering reservoir filter.

Has anyone ever changed the micronic filter in the bottom of the power steering reservoir? I can't find any reference to it in the various manuals that I've got and I can't find any part number for the reservoir on the parts CD.There is a picture of it on dia.no.34-0294 but it's reference only.Any h...

Boot trim

Unfortunately the tools are not electric (or heated) which is what I could do with in this weather!! Talking to Sharkfan yesterday,and he thought I should do the toolkit cover in leather as well.That could be a bit of a challenge but as the leather came for free I might have a go.

Cam cover etc.

Hi Dave, Was that price correct?? Unable to find anywhere local to do mine.The only place I could find was unable to blast the items and could only powdercoat.Any possibility that I could send you a box with the bits in and you could get them done for me? Regds.Ron.

Injectors

Thanks for that Bob.Managed to sort the problem.After releasing the plugs on #1 and #2 injectors the cable loom lifted high enough to turn #1 injector slightly and the casting slid off the engine.A clean-up of the casting and hoses,new gasket and all is going back together.I just hope nothing leaks!...

Can anyone tell me how to get the injector harness off? Does it just pull off from the injector plugs? I'm trying to get the casting off that the thermostat housing bolts to and #1 injector fouls it so I can't pull the housing off.Help gratefully received.
