Since my adventure began I have managed several repairs,the wipers,the head lights( one needs re chroming),the horn now works,( it was mounted on a metal flange between the radiator hose?.and subsequent no earth!,), I’ve had the heater box out and emptied it! It works but only on full power at the switch...any thoughts?.The bleed nipples are now all free moving so I can now begin to change the gunk for something that will do the job!. The king pins are greased and now the play in the steering is much reduced..Sadly I seem to have a leak from the fuel tank( diesel) , wondering if the pipes have chaffed and now leak? Is this a common thing?. The fuel gauge responds at the join at the bulk head so suspect the sender is knackered....a little tentative about taking this on..any thoughts on this would be appreciated!. Now, on with the overalls!!!
Interesting looking thing, heater blower resistor is on the inner wing by the drivers side headlamp (rhd) . Gauges are rubbish on old Fords, never ro be trusted, fusebox is another problem area for electrical faults. Good luck with it all
