Re: Help! Diff refill plug removal

Many thanks Bash & Stu,

All done now with a shallow 24mm socket and breaker bar. Nut is a bit rounded, which wasn't helping, but at least I managed to get some oil in.

All the best
Steve

Help! Diff refill plug removal

Hi, trying to remove the diff plus and it's proving tricker than I'd hoped! I've tried a 24mm and 15/16 socket with a universal joint and short extension around the back of the suspension arms, shallow 15/16 swan neck ring spanner, socket on a 600mm bar.

Sender resistance values

Hi all, hoping for a bit of a shortcut here 🤞 I'm planning to fit a Spiyda gauge wizard to to sort out my annoyingly erratic fuel gauge. To calibrate, you need to measure the sender resistance at 5 points: empty, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, full. Has anyone already done this and have the readings for an Excel? M...

Re: Fuel System Cleaners - any good?

The performance of that Minivan was quite remarkable, happy to cruise at 70+ and would regularly show 90 on the speedo. A cop who stopped me on one occasion tried to t...

Re: Fuel System Cleaners - any good?

Sounds good. My Excel on last MOT was CO .91, although may just need a carb tune of course. HC about the same.

Fuel System Cleaners - any good?

Anyone have any experience & opinion on fuel system cleaners like Redex, Liquid Moly, Wynn's, STP etc? The last time I used Redex was on a MK1 escort in the 80s, all I remember was a very impressive plume of smoke as I assume carbon deposits were cleared out All claim cleaning valves, pistons, jets,...
