That's brave of you to do before getting sent the wrong part

It was more to stop me using the old one, this way I can never can turn back.

i have been playing musical pressure plates for a few days but now I have slung one down into the bush so I don’t think about using it.

1kz landcruiser

should i bother seeing whats wrong with starter motor or just get another one

 

quick google tells me it might want solenoid rebuilt, but ive not seen it yet other than being told starter not working

 

 

*to clarify

its never been off road, so im unsure if this is something that happens to these starters and just needs cleaning out, or if its more likley to just be worn out

Does anyone have any good ideas for freeing up a stuck spark plug in an aluminium head please? Went to check the plugs on my Civic and three came out easily but the other one resisted the application of moderate force. Didn't wale on it really hard as not keen to risk breaking it or stripping threads. The three plugs I did get out were better than expected given the mileage and operating conditions of the engine (lots of short runs and almost never getting warmed up properly) but would like to replace them all anyway.

Find a tube socket that fits over the ceramic but sits on the metal of the plug and give it a whack with a hammer. That'll squash the washer under the plug. 

Works for copper washers under banjo bolts
