  1. Brilliant thanks for the info Andy Paul
  2. Thanks Andy, Not wanting to get to technical just wondering as it’s difficult to get a type 088 battery as listed in the parts manual, I have been using a type 100 battery which has performed ok but needs replacing every 4 years or so, really just asking what type are people using. I don’t use the car every day but most weekends it gets a drive, and charge is maintained in the winter via trickle charging. Paul
  3. This one seems to have stumped everyone!
  4. Just a quick one gents, what type of battery is best for the 1990 SE? thank you in advance Paul
  5. Evening all, I have received the new starter motor today but I am a little confused with the terminals. 1 terminal takes the 3 what I assume are live feeds leaving two spade connectors, in with the kit came a connector with a black wire which I presume is an earth which connects in to a specific terminal on the starter leaving one is the third terminal used if so with what as there is nothing to connect in to it? I am no electrician so please excuse my poor explanation but any help appreciated thanks
  6. Have you finished that drilling yet?
  7. Went out to the car earlier and the engine turned but didn’t fire, but won’t turn now!
  8. Afternoon all, just a quick update, I replaced the FPR with a second hand unit, after 3 cold starts the early indications are that it was a faulty FPR.. the car now starts on the button. Paul
  9. Thanks Ian, yes I asked Mr C to put the word out. I have located one so thanks anyway I appreciate it Paul
  10. Wow just shows if you know what your looking for!! thanks Derek, I will make a point of letting you know how I get on Paul
  11. Hi Derek, I must be missing something I have search everywhere but cannot find, can you send a link?
  12. Hi all, does anyone have a fuel pressure regulator for a 1990 SE kicking around that I could buy or borrow? I cannot find one to buy anywhere in the UK or US. I think I have a problem with mine and could really do with verifying it. Yours hopefully! Paul
  13. Yes absolutely none available and I am not skilled enough to fabricate one. I will put a plea out there to see if anyone has one sitting around thanks
  14. Ok thanks Derek, I may well be wrong, but I think we’re heading in the wrong direction with this. I am still leaning towards the FPRV, but I have no way of checking because I cannot buy one. thanks for your help, and should I find the problem I will let you know what it was.
