  • Well spotted. For those interested the lens is from an MG Midget front indicator - the remnants from a damaged light cluster from my first MG.

  • Changed my reversing light switch this afternoon. Interestingly there was no washer fitted, and I had to fit a washer to make the new one work ( without a washer it was on permanently), so if changing this switch it is a good idea to have 14mm aluminium washers to hand.

    Below is the switch, and the 50mm of oil lost, not a great colour, but as I have to top up regularly as one of the driveshaft oil seals leaks I treat it as a total loss lubrication system!

    Also is my continuity tester used to test the switch - any guesses on what the lens comes from?

    So my daily driver 2004 TF with 126,000 miles has developed the habit of running unevenly at low speed on deceleration/ overrun, jerking. Otherwise it is fine under load at normal speeds. I'm assuming for some reason the mixture is incorrect at low speed, hence the hunting?

    As far as I am aware the injectors are original and haven't been inspected or cleaned in the 5 years I've had the car - could this be the cause of my problems? How long are the injectors expected to last? I recall reading that diesel injectors are anticipated to last 100,000 miles, do petrol injectors last a similar period?

  • Parts ordered from MGFNTFBITZ who I've used before. Much cheaper than Rimmers, and I agree it's unlikely there's lots of people making these parts, so they all probably come from the same fabricator. Depending on the finish when they arrive, they'll get a coat of hammerite if required and a coating of dinitrol, and a spray of cavity wax for good measure.

  • Got it apart and it's encouraging to see that the poly bushes I fitted five years and about 35,000 miles ago are still in really good condition so they will be going on the new wishbones Thanks for the suggestions I'll try some of the other supplies and see what their prices and deliveries are like.

    One of my front wishbones failed last night at the rear pivot. My question is what's the difference if any between thr original MG Rover and Rimmer aftermarket wishbones, apart from £50 the pair? Are there any other brands which are equal in quality but better price?
