After three months(too many)...

Wipers mounted.



There's two stripes with thickness over the glass, close to every wiper. Does anyone to know its utility?

The marks could be from previous worn out wiper blades resting on the screen.

But they are perfect stripes, parallels, and look like molded with the glass.

I guess that they are inside? Left overs from an electric screen heater? May just be glue.

Look like residue left from twin bladed wipers. Use a quality glass cleaner, and it should remove them.

I thought it could be something related with snow or ice. They are outside. I'll try to clean them.

Well, surprisingly the stripes are not a bump but hollow. Something made to clean the rubber from ice or snow.

The car came with an very interesting russian petrol can. Very clever, the handle is the tap and the tube/cone.

What is a surprise, with just 10 liters the pointer goes to the middle, from the reserve. I imagine that the mileage is short.

Yesterday I've run the engine and I notice a leaking from the fuel pump. Exactly from the big round part.



Is it possible to rebuild the pump or it's better buy a new one or even to fit an electric one? What do you advice me?

This electrical pump is really cheap:

The pressure on that one looks a little high to me. I fitted a Huco "under bonnet" pump a while back, but it didn't like the hot environment under the bonnet. Replacement mechanical pumps are cheap and readily available, and I would recommend sticking with them.

On the downside, if the car isn't run for a few days, it takes a while for a mechanical pump to fill the carb. An electric pump gets around this, but under-bonnet ones are prone to vapour locks when it gets hot. Boot mounted pumps (and indeed any electric pump) should really be fitted with a "G-switch" to cut off the power in an accident, otherwise they can pump neat petrol onto a hot engine (or worse, into the passenger compartment!) in an accident. Not a good idea.....!

Yes, I have that problem as I start the car every 7 or 10 days, it needs several seconds to start.
I forgot the security side. I will continue with e new mechanical pump as you advice me. Thanks.

I want to remove the door to work on it easily, I need to repair a big dent and remove rust.
What is the best way to remove it? I've seen screws that hold the hinge to the body but in another post I've seen a door removed in a different way, with the hinges on position.

If you take the door card off you will see the 2 large nuts holding the door onto the hinges..they should have a locking tab on each one..bend the tab out of the way and undo the nut..it may take 2 people as the door will need supporting. Once the door is off DO NOT move the 2 nuts left on the hinge or you will have to adjust the door when re-fitting.

I would mark the position of the hinges on the door and vice versa with a paint marker anyway.
