Re: New battery, but no power, Help!

Total failure is relatively easy to sort out. Because it may well be one Big fault, A voltmeter is essential. A small digital voltmeter can cost as little as £ 3.00. For 20.00 you can get some HEAVY DUTY 600 Amp jump leads. With some 20 Amp wire you could connect the thinner of the two wires coming ...

Re: Radiator mounting

Been looking hard at the blue 'un ('89 Indian built CJ340) Radiator hoses are perished and need doing real soon (and are virtually unobtainable I believe) I've noticed that there's an aproximately 3" deep sheet steel spacer between the radiator and the front panel. Sole purpose of this seems to be ...

Re: Leaf springs redone

Very interesting photos.

Looks like a CJ 340 Stockman unter the bonnet circa 1973. So you have a Classic !

Many thanks for sharing all this with us here.

Re: nuts

Got a feeling Whitworth was around centuries before BS got involved !

I favour BA for small screw sizes but metric seems to done a similar job grey swuirrels did to Red !

Re: Air filter

Just a thought, but have a good look at the clutch hydraulics and release piston. The piston could be sticking if its rusted or crusted in dirt. My old Brave had a similar problem. The rubber boot had perished and got filled up with crud causing the piston to be slow on letting the clutch back in m...
