Re: Moving drivers seat backwards

As Andrew says I guess leg length is the main issues as I'm 6' + with no issues. Just to cover the obvious, is the seat going back all the way?

Re: rear seats

hi how does the metal bit come off the rear of rear seat? thanks for any help Chris, do you mean the panel that the carpet is fixed to? There is a 10mm nut hidden under a cut flap in the middle at the bottom of the panel. You'll see it if the seat is folded flat. The top edge has a lip and just slo...

Re: Alternator rating

Hi Peter, I got a 55A one too on my Pinto as a couple of years back I remember I was deciding between either the 45a or 55a and decided to go 'up' as I have Bosch battery at a higher rating than standard. Cheers Nick. Almost surprised that the old girl started this morning so I guess the old altern...

Re: Alternator rating

Standard is a 45amp but with the extras it can't hurt going to a 55amp so long as your battery is also up to it. My Laser has an 097 battery with a 54 amp rating. A dim glow ususally means a diode ih the rectifyer is about to go, I think the 35 amp alternator would have only suited a 1.6 base with ...

Alternator rating

I've had an intermittent dull glow from the charging light on the dash recently which strangely seemed worse at higher revs. Anyway out in the dark and rain 50 miles from home yesterday evening it was glowing like a good 'un so might be time to swap the alternator. I have an old spare but, as Christ...

Re: A garage won't give me my money back.

This is probably not what you want to hear: Your initial cheapest option is probably go to Citizens Advice and they may confirm that you have a case for recovering the money. I suspect though that as there is nothing in writing they will say its your word against the garage. You could go to the smal...

Re: My Electrics are a mess - 'shortcuts' to make my engine run.

Is the small black wire connected to the positive battery terminal? If you can't see it have a fish around under the battery tray. Nothing works if it is not connected.

Re: Who Remembers?

Yes, it's now a shame that only Francis is the original member and Rhino / Andy Bown as long standing members. It starts to feel like Dr Feelgood (no pun intended :D ) Where do you draw the line that are we now seeing a tribute of the former real act ? Not much after 1980 was worth buying imo, but ...

Re: Who Remembers?

Wish I had got to see the Frantic Four tours in 2013/14 :( I'm lucky enough to have caught a Frantic Four gig. First time I saw them was Hammersmith in 1986 so hadn't seen the original line up previously. To finally do it years later was great. The wife was less thrilled as she seems to prefer some...
