  1. Just measured the current with the multimeter, it pulls around 4-5A, that shouldn't blow the 10A fuse. Measured the circuit resistance from the fuse and it's 1.6ohms. That works out at 7.5A on 12V, so again shouldn't blow the fuse. I'm wondering if you are correct with your dodgy switch theory. Maybe sometimes the switch causes it to draw more. Switch is the only bit that's different to before. There's the relay too, but it only uses that on intermittent.
  2. not quite a direct swap. The matching wires in the loom don't match the same positions on the new switch connector. So I've had to modify the new switch so that they do. Gonna plug it all in tomorrow and we'll see what happens this time. Tried it before as a direct swap and the only thing that made the wipers move was pressing the washer
  3. Are Insa Turbos a directional tyre? What do people do about rotating the tyres front to back and side to side etc to even the wear?
  4. Thanks guy, I'll just buy a new stalk then. bit easier.
  5. Looking at doing this mod to my 1986 90. Currently only has 2 speed wipers with push down once wipe (which doesn't work any more). Does the PRC 7370 stalk switch fit onto an older 90 steering column? The wiring I'm quite capable of (I'm an aircraft electrician) just not sure whether to order one of those stalk switches or use a separate intermittent switch.
  6. It's all back together now and road tested (by I have missed driving that V8). Had some problems with the clutch, mostly sorted now. I think it has something to do with the V8 in it. There is a matching plate between the engine and the clutch bellhousing. When I took it all apart the clutch slave cylinder rod needed replacing, so I ordered one and changed it. When I put it back together clutch wouldn't disengage. Looked at the rod, and compared to the old one it's about 1-2" shorter. Straightened the old one and put it back in and clutch worked. Why would it need to be longer? Is it because of the adaptor plate, and the V8? I need a new one, cos it's obviously weekened now, but I can't find a part number. The old one does look like simply a length of threaded bar with 2 nuts on, perhaps that is what I need to do. Unless anyone knows of a good part number.
  7. I would be happy if admin want to put all these into the technical archive for other peoples future reference. It is something I couldn't find anywhere before I started, so if it helps anyone I'll be glad.
  8. Clutch release. Looks much tougher than the Landrover 90 version. http://s923.photobucket.com/user/suetonbrad/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-06/20160606_151403_zpsr3mhhojh.jpg.html?filters[user]=138390622&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=96
  9. My solution to assembling the 1st/2nd synchro. Manual says hold springs in by hand........tried that, ended up pinging all over. So........ 1 tywrap and 1 plastic bag. http://s923.photobucket.com/user/suetonbrad/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20160608_134813_zpsphjvxwc7.jpg.html?filters[user]=138390622&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=108

  13. Ok that photo upload seemed to work. Now lets try some more .http://s923.photobucket.com/user/suetonbrad/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-05/20160531_163818_zpspnbo0dba.jpg.html?filters[user]=138390622&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=76 http://s923.photobucket.com/user/suetonbrad/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-05/20160531_163827_zpsqrmbiaac.jpg.html?filters[user]=138390622&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=77 http://s923.photobucket.com/user/suetonbrad/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-05/20160531_164611_zpsun4rpjam.jpg.html?filters[user]=138390622&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=78 http://s923.photobucket.com/user/suetonbrad/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-05/20160531_164618_zpsde9tt6a2.jpg.html?filters[user]=138390622&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=79 http://s923.photobucket.com/user/suetonbrad/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-05/20160531_181217_zpszyei33qy.jpg.html?filters[user]=138390622&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=80 http://s923.photobucket.com/user/suetonbrad/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-05/20160531_181945_zpsvuqybloa.jpg.html?filters[user]=138390622&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=83 That's pretty much all of the removal photos
  14. http://s923.photobucket.com/user/suetonbrad/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2016-05/20160531_163811_zps8jcbm0vd.jpg.html?filters[user]=138390622&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=75 Gearbox coming out.
  15. Tried all that......it didn't work. Sussed it in the end........I removed the reverse idler gear and put it in the casing on it's side, fitted the casing then flipped the reverse gear into it's correct position. Put the reverser shaft back in..........and Robert is ya mothers brother. Just discovered that the rear mainshaft castle-ated nut is goosed though, so job is on a stall until that turns up. I suppose I could fit the main box back to the car and wait for the bolt, but it wouldn't really make that much difference.
