Re: Alignment issues

Hi

After checking everything, it turns out the lower control arm bolts are the cause. They seemed good, but not good enough. Had them replaced. All perfect now.

Re: Alignment issues

Thanks for the info.

The alignment guys I use is not the real problem I suspect. After its been set it goes perfect for a while. That's why I think it's something on the car that is faulty.

Re: Tailight wiring 72 XY Ranchero

Hi

Will this wiring information apply to the XA Ranchero? I'm trying to connect the tow-bar socket, but the current tail light wiring is not what it should be. Any help?

Re: Classic car mirror set

Hi Gordini

Do you perhaps have a set of mirrors for a 77 Alfa GTV 20L. It only has a driver's side mirror (think it came that way), but would like to fit one on the passenger side.

Re: battery rundown amp light glowing

I had two similar problems. Both was due to a bad connection. This was common with the Escort XR3, overhauled the alternator, changed the battery, but the battery light always glowed slightly. Then changed the wiring at the back of the alternator - new plug, clean contacts etc, the problem was perma...
