Re: Orinal screws/bolts used to secure the bonnet, consuls and steering box side covers.

Thanks for the advice Sandy, I have resorted to buying what I can find here at home, buying through Ebay is cool but the shipping is the killer.

Re: What lamps are used for the oil pressure and charging lamps?

Good day Jerry, Thank you for the heads up, the harness that I have was bought from Sparex here in Durban RSA and I trust it is okay. To me those advertised online all look the same. Sure I will look out for what you have cautioned about. Still a little bit premature for the harness at this stage. K...

Re: Throttle lever and associated snapclips, "o" ring and seal.

Thanks Sandy, firstly lets get this circlip issue out the way, does it fit below the dash cover and what does it hold the shaft onto? I recal that there was a circlip on one of the shafts I have which was about 50mm below the top of the shaft. Secondly do you have the sizes of the washer and seal. S...

Thanks folk, the link you posted Mathias is what I have identified on my holders. Now to find some lamps, I found the invoice and noted the harness was purchased thru Sparex South Africa, hold your breath on 24 August 2006 :oops:

Re: What lamps are used for the oil pressure and charging lamps?

Hi Sandy, thank you for your reply. I had a good look at the sockets and even pulled on the centre wire to see what was lurking further down in the socket, but found there are no threads, no grooves for the baynet pins to secure into just plain smooth sides. Could this be another after market issue....

Are we not possibly looking at a bum starter motor, as IlkkaV did mention that he was able to turn the engine by hand? When I checked my oil pressure I removed the oil pressure sensor and fitted a ferguson green and red pressure guage if he can get one, worked okay for me to get an idea of my oil pr...
