    14 pin plug.

    Thanks Peter much appreciated.

    14 pin plug.

    My 14 pin plug was brittle and broke(engine harness end) and had a couple of wires corroded off. Is there a better alternative or should I send for a new plug and pins from the States?
  3. Trouble again I've been doing a few little jobs during lockdown. My horn wasn't working(after market wheel) so I resoldered a broken wire back on the steering wheel hub. While I had the iron out I thought I would tidy up the wire coming from the 14pin plug where PO fitted the relay(see above) unfortunately when I refitted the plugs back together it broke in my hand and wires 1and 2 fell off due to corrosion. Wire 1 went to voltmeter which I bypassed wire 2 was for oil pressure but still worked(PO must have bypassed it) and the plug is now held together with zip tie. Is there a better solution to the 14pin plug or should I purchase new plug and pins from the States?
  4. Andrew Constance has been caught out. After raking in millions of $ in revenue there have been 3 more deaths on the roads than the same time last year despite many lock downs (much less traffic) so the saving lives story was bull- - - - and now there putting back one warning sign. I'm glad because I was staring at every SUV parked on the side of the road and hitting the brakes.

    Coolant leak.

    Pump leaking now replaced along with 2 year old cambelt all good now.
  6. Tidied up some wires under the motor and cleaned some earths and found a wire off terminal 50 on the starter motor alas no fix. Turned out I applied sealant on the TTS when I replaced it which gave a too high resistance that was the problem now fixed.
  7. An article in yesterdays paper The auditor general has ordered that mobile speed camera cars in N.S.W lose their hi-vis decals and triple the hours they are used on the roadsides in the name of saving lives. It seems odd a money man has suggested this safety measure but not safety experts or RMS officials.

    Thanks for the replies fingers crossed it may just a gasket.
  9. Background when I brought this 1980 928 the water pump had been changed at 108000kms but time wise unknown and I was given the old pump and some spares in the deal. Now I have what appears to be a leak dripping onto the sump from behind the cambelt covers when engine is running. My question is can these pumps be recoed or are they throwaway items the mileage on the new pump is only 25000kms.
  10. Zeez try reposting this in Technical water cooled 911. You've posted it in the wrong section a section rarely read my most members.

  12. OZ wasn't aware of the 4D law but it's open to abuse by the sounds of it.
