Finally bit the bullet and bought a high torque starter from MED.

I think my old starter is struggling to turn the engine over. Even run the summer the first start of the day, my heart is in my thought as it struggles to start the car. 

 

Currently the car is stuck like this in my garden:

Just won't start even with a fresh battery.

Cut a slot in the end of the ‘captive’ bolt so you can wind it 95% of the way into the casing with a screwdriver. Otherwise it’s a long slow job with a spanner when you can only turn it one flat at a time.

Yes. Second this advice.

Thanks for that! 

 

Probably saved my sanity

Was really tired of how dull and uninspiring my garage was, But I dint want to send tons on vintage signs etc. 

 

So set myself a challenge to make it a nicer place to be on a budget. I have collected stuff from flee markets for a while, I also repurposed some lamps and a tacky wall clock into what I think are pretty nice lamps (Castrol, AA and Monte Carlo)

The lack of any mini driving must be getting to me! Made these for that garage too (no room for them really)

​Edit: I only painted the BMC sign.

So I have now fitted the new starter. 

 

The lower bolt was tricky, but not too bad. 

 

It is a bit weird that the terminal stud points straight towards the grill, it clears, but not by much 

 

Finally bit the bullet and bought a high torque starter from MED.
