Thanks Ken
The indicator unit has always been wobbly but this is the first time I've stuck my head under there to find there is a screw/bolt ? missing
is the missing screw/bolt any particular dimension ? I will see if any club member has one lying around in a shed.

Would I be correct in assuming my auto electrician would have an electronic flasher can that would fit (is it a generic item or something specific to fit a 60 year old car ?)

For a start definately tighten up the indicator body, this could very well be the problem.
But, check your flasher can. If it's an original one then replace it with an electronic one. They are more expensive but will work more reliably.

Hi Ken,

Can you please advise the part number etc for the Electronic Flasher Can.
Thanks
John

The indicators on the FC wagon have stopped flashing
they all come on, on the correct side of the vehicle when you move the indicator arm but just stay lit up. the corresponding green arrow on the dash just stays lit also

Notes
The wagon is modified.. has H4(?) headlights and some upgraded electric things
It seemed to happen after I took the Hot Rod scooter to work for a whole week and ignored the FC
Is it just being temperamental ?
It seems to have started (maybe) when I hooked up the trailer
Could the trailer harm the wagons electrics ?
The drivers side front indicator is loose and we have noticed the light can be a little duller until you jiggle the indicator unit and it comes brighter again
is it just a bad earth connection
noticed there is a vacant hole.. should these three be nuts and bolts or screws  (typically my wagon seems to have an assortment) What do I buy if I want to replace them ?

just wondering what the possible causes might be
Having NO technical abilities...
do I just leave it with an Auto sparky to figure out and fix

Apologies for hijack Cam. What I was going to say about the wheel arches, I agree you don’t gain any clearance as the inner guard is in the same plane so to speak. On the other hand you see it on a lot of cars, mainly the type that crawl over speed humps etc. they run wheels that just sit under the outer edge and look great. Hard cornering and unexpected bumps cause the tyres to rub occasionally.

I can’t help anticipating that you might want to tidy up and improve that inner wheel well area while you have such good access to it Wayno. It is pretty common to bend the seam up and move the tub wall in for an additional 20mm or so clearance as you are more than likely aware.

Well I have had a good day in the garage today and I got the inlet and exhaust manifolds, carby, distributor, fuel pump, hockey stick breather, fan and the generator installed onto the motor. Next is the gearbox to get some love, new gaskets and seals then repaint. Cheers Greg

Your right there Wayno Will just clean it up then
depends what tyre youre gonna run.
im gonna try and get some more guard clearance seeing how close i can get that inner to the quarter panel.
seeing as though i got my 1/4 panel off i can check pretty easy
i will get back to you on that one.
anway youre doing great with the build .keep it up!!!!
