    The other way to raise the front of the seat and tilt the back slightly is to remove the runners and pack under them with some thick washers or make a wedge to fit.

    Yes, thats the way I did it. The TD and TF have the headlamp tail connectors on each side, just inboard from the headlamps. You only need to use those on one side for switching both, and the others become redundant. I used the RHS and mounted the two relays on the RH bonnet side just below the wing line.

    I have opened up the front of the engine and can see that the cam is not timed correctly. There are 12 links between the timing marks instead of 13. In the picture I have put arrows on the timing marks.
    My problem now is how to get the sprockets off the crank and cam. The wsm says to lever them off or use 2 of the special tools designed for this purpose. I have tried levering but I am afraid o...

There should be double snap connectors here where the split is for left and right headlamps. The relay coils are connected to the end of the loom in place of the headlamp wires, one relay being the 'high' the other 'dip'. The main power l...

    Out of Interest.. does the gearbox fit a 1300? I have wondered about doing the same for when my 1500 needs rebuilding.

    It took four breakdowns at the side of the road before I realised the black rotor arms I had were the culprit. A new one from Halfords (circa 2002 vintage) straight out the pack only lasted me about 20 miles before it failed. They always failed in the same way as well - car got warmed up after about 12miles, engine started losing power, I'd pull over and wait for the car to cool down, I'd turn r...
