    Re: LED bulb/resistor wiring question

    Just a point for the earlier cars, I have seen an LED bulb that flashes red on stop and yellow on turn all through a red lens. Bi coloured bulbs are not new, but there must be a mighty powerful...

    Re: Exhaust Manifold Flange Stud

    I am afraid that I took a different route with mine. I guess that I should have tried heat treatment first but I do not have a gas torch.

    Look at the battery connections, the general situation is that your car should be positively earthed that is + to chassis. If this is so, then all you should need to do is swap over the existing...
