    agreed on lubing the threads of head bolts for correct torque setting. dry bolts will give a higher reading. best to remove them one at a time, lube the threads then retorque. that'll do it.
    neil.

    And today’s tinkering in the cave of men resulted in a working handbrake, I cut down a Sierra cable and fitted a reusable end fitting from MK sports cars, a bit pricey at £20 delivered, but it seems to do the job, I also replaced one of the fuel pumps rubber mounts,another job off the list, I also finished off the 2 front sunroof drain tubes, I’ve also noticed another bloody leak from the gearbox ,this time from the shift lever/ kick down lever, it’s looking more like they didn’t change any of the seals when they checked over the box, I don’t really want to take the engine out again so may see if I can change the seals in place ,how hard can it be? For fxxks sake can’t anybody do a job right I’m off for some beer, cheers and keep warm.

    Today’s tinkering, now got all the lights working using the Sierra column stalks , I’ve got a problem with the fog lights though,they turn on after the lights are on then go out when the lights are switched off but come back on when the lights are switched back on, and I need to get a constant live to the hazards as they only turn on with the ignition, when they are sorted the loom is finished, just need to tidy the wiring and wrap it , it also looks like I will have to take the engine out to sort the gear box leak ,bumhats, didn’t want to but I can’t get the gearbox sump off as somebody left a great sodding-cross member in the way (what was I thinking of), looks like that’s next weeks job,no pics as it’s only wiring,cheers for now.

    can't you cut the crossmember out and add flanges so it bolts in place. i know a fixed gearbox crossmember in rods has been common practice for donkey's years but i really don't get it.

    Thanks mygasser, it’s not the cross member the holds the gearbox, it the original cross member-that the original front axle pivoted on, you can see it on picture #57, but I could cut it out if needed ,cheers.

    Depending on wiring loom, usually fog light switch is momentary with a latching relay that drops out when the lights are switched off and will only switch the fog on with the lights on and the momentary switch pushed.
