    Think I might have figured this out thanks to your suggestion - the car has had a new battery recently and I'm betting one of the earth wires for the uprated headlight loom was disconnected and not...

    OK thanks, will take a look at that. I'm hoping that would be OK though as I put in an upgraded headlight loom a few years ago to take load off that switch and wiring!

  10. Rear Bumper - Condition Not Really Important

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a rear bumper (think they're all the same but in case it's a 1990 G60), doesn't really matter if it's cracked or marked, so long as the metal crash guard is OK. I'm in...

    Re: Mondys Nugget Yellow G60 - 1.9 Rebuild

    I wasn't sure how they'd look either but at the end of the day I decided that they'd hardly be visible once the engine is in, like you say it makes it a bit more individual :)

    Here's a few more...

    Re: megasquirt help needed (NEW VIDEO ADDED!)

    Are you using MS1 or 2? If you post the config file up I'll have a quick look as well and see if anything looks different to the settings I used.

    Re: megasquirt help needed (IM A HAPPY BOY!)

    I'd definitely second this advice! I thought I'd got mine running pretty well, the AFR's all looked good across the rev range but I just guessed at the timing and ended up melting pistons :( Well...

  18. Re: Removing the headlining - need some advice please

    Yeah you just pull it out, it fits around the edges of the headlining so you sort of pull it horizontally towards the middle of the sunroof if that makes sense!

    Re: Mondys Nugget Yellow G60 - 1.9 Rebuild

    He was just driving along at about 30mph when it suddenly pulled him across the road. He managed to carry...

    This all makes for depressing reading - I've got a BBM charger ready to go on my car once I've finished rebuilding the engine! I did have it on the engine for about 400 miles before the engine...

    Re: Mondys Nugget Yellow G60 - 1.9 Rebuild

    I decided on the BahnBrenner ones (actually made by Ross Racing Pistons) in the end, mainly due to price TBH! They do keep the stock compression ratio as well so not sure if they'd be any use to you.
