    if it's not chafed wires how about disconnecting the wiper motor part of the green circuit as close as you can to the fuse box and see how it goes, then reconnect that and disconnect the next connection along including switch and continue this process until you end at the wiper motor to hopefully find the bad part of the circuit

    I hope above makes sense

    or use a multimeter or test bu...

    Barry, take it to a shop with a diagnostic set up - scope etc. They can monitor the spark voltage etc with it running.

    I had my TD master cylinder resleeved with stainless steel by Mark Frappier. About $80 including return shipping. His work looks excellent.

    I was not asking about how to set the timing and I am aware of the method of setting the timing by running up to 4500-5000 revs (set mine to 30 degrees at that) but my initial post refers to the variation at low revs. I am surprised by the amount of wobble and just wondered if that was normal. I had expected that with electronic dizzy there would be little wobble. Just curious - the car seems t...

    I have just taken the TF's bonnet catches and seat rails to be zinc plated. Unfortunately the electroplater I normally use doesn't do zinc so I had to make a 15 mile journey. The guy I am using only does zinc and anodising but has an agreement with another company to pass on chrome work to them. He said the thing to look out for is "Tri Valent Chromium" which gives a superior finish and gets into ...

    John, It's a pain, but when installing the radiator, you have to put everything together loose, with the metal rings in place. The rings go on the outside of the rubber donuts to preserve their shape during compressing. The rings might not stay in place until you get some pressure on them. As I said, their a pain, but doable. PJ

    Nor me. But I don't see why hard cornering on a track, anymore than cornering over 35 years on public roads would make the nuts unwind.

    -- Unless you were driving in reverse, AND, didn't have the lock tab washers in place and bent over, AND, the outer race was seized to the inner race, AND, the inner race was loose on the axle shaft. Then I suppose the hub could unwind the nuts as it rotat...

    I have a mate with a TC on cross plys who has been advised to increase his tyre presures to 35psi to prevent rupturing of the inner tube. Any thoughts? Cheers
