Having a bit of a clear out and came across a set of glowplugs that I bought for an old XUD. They are brand ew
They are wellman W631 and will fit http://www.trupart.c...e/html/gx74.htm

Also got a gunson colourtune still in its box. I am never going to use it so might as well pass it on.

Yours for free /postage

Ooooh! Bagsy the Colourtune please......! (it's the only way to set up a 2286 Land Rover with the Solex PA40 carb on it....) I shall be able to lob snail mail fundage in an envelope at the end of the month... is it still in it's shiny black cardboard box? I miss my old one... lent it to an old chap who died about a week later, and didn't have the heart to trouble his Wife. Popped in about a month after the funeral to find she had lobbed "All his old crap out cos it was shit and did her head in....." :( Ah well!

Is this like a Shitecycle thing going off?

Colortunes are great pieces of kit, but you have to use them in the dark to see the fairly subtle difference between white and blue flame.

I'll happily offer the glowplugs a new home if nobody is in desperate need of some. They'll fit the BX and if that doesn't need them before it dies, that list is mostly the sorts of thing it would be replaced by :D

Would PayPal be ok for postage moog?

Many thanks to Mr Moog :D

To continue the giveaway I have several headlights and at least one coil in a box of BX spares, dunno if the coil works but its no use to me as mines a diesel. Free + postage (my workplace is too tight for freepost malarkeys)

I have been told that you can test a coil by checking the resistance between various terminals with a multimeter, I have a multimeter but I don't know what resistances to look for. :roll:

I've just thought of a better way of using a colourtune, traditionally you need near blackout conditions to see the dim little blue flicker, cheap little pinhole cameras with half decent colour rendition are now available so could be possible to see what's going on while you drive, sort of as good as doing a plug chop without having to stop.

In the spirit of the great Autoshite giveaway, I have an old oil filled Pickhill Bantam welder free to a good home. It needs new leads but as far as I know works ok. Not sure if it is any use to anyone but would like it to be made use of as I have very fond memories of my grandad welding up the axle on my kettcar numerous times with it when I was young.
