    Re: Paperless!

    So now if we are not part of the Digital world then we are truly off grid anyway. I still like to keep paper records on file at home. Who knows what these little bits and bites might be trying to do...

    Re: Our County has just abandoned recycling.

    Yeh, I'm ready to go back to the 19th century. Will my Healey run very well on Lamp Oil.

    Re: Call in the lawyers

    Are there a lot of trees per acre in Antarctica? Whomever wants your trees, I like the idea of them paying for them.

    Re: Gearbox and Overdrive Oil Level

    Here's the page from the Bentley Manual. This is the BJ8. Spec for the earlier 6 cyl. cars is very near the same with a difference of maybe only a 1/100 of a litre. I have changed my trans oil a...

    Re: Front Shroud Differences: 3000 vs. BJ8

    MaxWedge, I have a BJ7 that has dual lighting like a BJ8. I investigated that arrangement years ago when I bought the car and was told that it was delivered to Germany and had an early Euro...

    Re: 3000 BJ8 Door Seals

    I'm pretty sure that you have it correctly installed. I used MacGregor seals on my BJ7 and I like them although at the time I had the same question as you and I terminated them incorrectly. But I...

    Re: Electric Relay Placement

    You have a good point Steve. Many do have them centrally located. I usually do see them in an enclosure under the hood. My two Nissans have it that way. But of course that’s Nilsson. ��. Too me...

    Re: Electrical question

    I agree with Michael. In my mind there are two reasons for the relay to be close to the device. 1. is that you do not want to have the high current or the larger wires coming into a small switch....
  14. Re: Miami Weather Forcast - Chilly with a Chance of Falling Iguanas

    Pocono Mtn ski areas are at about 20 degrees with great conditions for skiing. When I was growing up I hated winter so I spent the winter days in the garage wrenching on anything I could find. The...

    Re: Turn Signal Indicator Light Always Flashing

    Doug, my point in all this is that if you have one dash indicator light instead 2 then I believe the fault is in the flasher because the relay should not be involved. But then another scenario could...

    Doug, From your discription here I don't think you are looking at the circuit correctly. I will try to state my points. I appologize if I am misinterpreting what you are saying.

    Doug, I just looked at the schmatic for the early 6 cyl cars and as Ray was stating the dash turn indicator lights gets its power from the "P" terminal of the flasher but the other side gets its...

    Are you saying that the dash indicator light is flashing and no turnsignal bulb at any corner is not lit at all?

    Re: Fuses Blowing

    I think maybe some wires at the fuse block got switched around. The horn should be on the fused side of the 50 amp fuse not the power in side. If I remember right it is easy to get a short between...

    Well folks I have to agree with both of you. But I do agree that at some point that originality should be saved. Obviously if it is really rare and unique. Cheers.
  22. Re: Removing connecting link between shock absorber and rear axle

    Volker, the quick answer is whatever fits. I guess I can remember that some bolts & nuts are a tight squeeze. So first thing is soak then we’ll in line like WD40 or Liquid Wrench. Then look for...
  23. Re: Removing connecting link between shock absorber and rear axle

    The only tension on the link is the resistance in the shock arm so the axle does not have to be supported other than its natural position. But as John said I'm pretty sure the shock will have to be...
