    Re: Smiths Fuel Gauge To Tank Sender

    Re: Fuel neck and filler cap

    I agree Fordopedia is a most excellent resource. I just thought it would be difficult to purchase a filler using the part number as Ford dealers are unlikely to have any.

    Indicator stalk clearance fix

    Re: Type 9 Gearbox in a Roadster

    One thing to check is that the gearbox is level longitudinally and laterally. The oil should be about level with centreline of the input and output shaft. A slight lowering of this level might cause...

    Re: Overheating Roadster

    I still wonder if mixture is the problem. Does the overheating occur idling in traffic or under load such as on a motorway?

    If it overheats when idling it is most probably the cooling system.

    Re: Clunking Differential - play/ backlash?

    Hi, and welcome to the club.

    Assuming your diff is from a Ford Sierra, the first clunk think I think of is the rear diff mounting. That is an encased rubber affair and after all these years many...
