    Re: "Fuel Diamond" Gasoline Treatment

    That is a 20P piece - both coins are a tad tarnished hence the colour - I am with Mr Oritt - drive the car more. The alternative is to drain the tank -

    If you have a camera, take it, and yourself, over to Bill Rawles, he has a load of Healeys kicking around and I am sure that he will have a BN4 in.

    Re: BJ8 plus 55mph Front end shaking

    Back in the day! (Hrmph) we used to put a fancy profiled sticker on our headlamps when we drove in a foreign country to account for the difference in the left and right hand dipping. I think that we...
  6. Re: BJ7 Drain Channel and Small Waist Trim piece question

    From my discussions with Bill Rawles it can be done but it is a real bear, I think that the wings may need to be removed as the shroud has to be lifted tad to get the channel in over the wheel arch. ...

    Re: BJ8 plus 55mph Front end shaking

    I have not tried it yet - in fact I did not need to after fitting new tyres, but I also suffered scuttle shake at around 60MPH - for me the new tyres fixed it. We did not spin them up to balance them...

    Re: Brake lights on all the time

    FWIW I would buy your replacement switch but leave the old one in place until it goes again. I have two which I alternate when such troubles occur. Which is around every 3 years, I don't know why it...

    Re: How to tell if a starter is going bad?

    I am with Roscoe on this, a heavy draw on the battery sorts the good from the bad, and the Starter solenoid could be on the way out.

    You have checked all the main leads for tightness, but are the...

    Re: Hesitant starting

    I have to say that my BJ7 was a lot like that several years ago, especially in winter, and once started I could not control the tick over speed properly, it had to be at least 1000 revs. Now it just...

    Re: Creaking rear suspension

    All above - good advice, but also check the shock fixings, in the past I had an irritating squeak and found the shock bolts needed tightening, all good after that.

    No anti seize, no thread locker, a good tighten as per an ordinary wheel nut is all I give them and I have not had any issues over the years.
