Re: Tickover delivery

Had the same with Demon Tweeks recently. Postage was £8 or something for a hose (in a jiffy bag) as the "economy" option. I was sure it was a mistake, so I contacted customer services but they weren't having it :banghead: :swear: Won't be using them again unless I can avoid it.

Re: Pinto starter motor terminals

Do all the new starters just have the two terminals then? And if so, what happens with that third wire when fitting the new starter? Don't know if they all have. I went with a high torque one (powerlite) as my old one was struggling a bit with the higher compression. I've just got it tied up out of...

Re: Pinto starter motor terminals

Well, it worked fine with just the two wires connected. Great to have it up and running again. I'm thinking the extra wire was to do with the neutral-start inhibitor from the old auto gearbox actually. :drive:

Re: Hose connections at the tank

Thanks. I've ordered some 6mm and 8mm R9 which is hopefully arriving tonight.The tank is *possibly* 2/3 full - but really not sure! That's what it's reading on the gauge but I was wondering about the voltage regulator issue (temp gauge reads right so doubt it)

Pinto starter motor terminals

Thought I'd replace the starter too as it's obviously been struggling. New one only has two terminals (heavy duty and spade connector) old one has those two plus a round push on one. What's the extra one for? Do I need it? Car was originally an auto if that matters and it's still the same starter fr...
