Best to check voltage when it's running. Can show 12 with no load, if there is a shit connection it'll drop down with a load.

Did you know:

Not all 10's and 110's came with Intermittent, indeed it was generally only the lu'X'ury model, with all its other fancy trimmings like electric windows, etc.

Phwoar. I tell you. Things were crazy back in the day.

I'm glad I don't have electric windows, just another thing to fail haha

Ok so now that you're enlightened about how to put the electric motor back together - how do you do it?! I did it recently with 3 people and a collection of tweezers...

It's still a major pain in the ass but to get the bushes back in their springy home while you're fucking around with the rest, loop the wire around the little catch at the end of each bit. That probably makes no sense.

Assuming that's what you're talking about.

I get it - makes way more sense than what I tried/eventually achieved!

Yeah tell me about it, I was this close to giving up then I found some obscure post someone made on a Z forum and it was like a night and lightswitch had been flicked. I felt like such an idiot haha

In regards to the clunking, are you sure the piston rod nuts are all the way home? I've had it before where the piston hadn't locked into the top hat correctly and so the piston was turning when I thought it was locked in place. Meant clunky noises. Popped the nuts off, and realigned the piston rod into the top hat (it had a cut out, hadn't noticed it at first), this locked the piston and allowed it to be properly tightened. You've likely already got that sorted, but just thought i'd mention it in case. Or your setup may not be the same. I'd just check by tightening it and checking the piston isn't turning.

^^ Definitely look at that. Also, judging by the rubber covers over the shock pistons, the rubber seats for the springs are probably pretty shagged, they make a difference.

Yeah the cutout is aligned (if we're talking about the same thing) as it wouldn't fit the hole without that being in the right place. Yeah those rubber covers have definitely seen better days.. but I think the spring seat is ok but could be right on that too @Sambo

Yeah see how it goes, I just like having no orange on the car now as the rear lights of course don't have orange in it either.

Hmm haven't seen them, but then haven't really looked. These were cheap and I do like the style of them, just need to get em to fit a bit nicer
