    Anyway. Yea, PanFS....
    I have a 2000 9-5 sedan. I think Lucas reared it's sooty horned head here too. It's got this orange relay-shaped light failure sensor I think Lucas made. I've had to take it apart and resolder it twice, as it has had cold solder joints or solder pads that weren't sturdy enough for the wiring. When this screws up, lights go out, just like something of British automotive legend.

    Ah, cameras, film, and SAABs. I have a 1984 900S (355,000 miles) and a 2006 9-3 Sport Sedan. I get false bulb failure notices every once in a while on the 9-3. Take out the bulb, check w/ohmmeter, tests good. Put bulb back in, it works. Go figure!
    Slight, invisible corrosion might be the culprit.

    I'm sorry if this way off topic.

    I look forward to putting some Ilford in my 4x5 Graflex RB Series B...

This usually occured as I was going to work in the morning... After a bit of practice I used to be able to remove it (2 wires, 2 bolts), dissassemble and clean the amarture and brushes, reassemble, and reinstall in about 10mins still in my suit and tie!

    My current 'toy' car has 4-1 exhaust header pipes that go past the starter (350 Chev) and cause it to heat up so that it won't start unless it's been sitting for an hour or 2 and has cooled down sufficiently. Pain in the bum, but as the car only comes out of the shed once a year I haven't fixed it yet! I bought and tried to fit a 'lightweight hi-torque' starter but when fitted, it actually sticks out further than the std one and you can't do up the bellhousing bolts tight due to the exhaust pipes in the way! One day I'll get around to replacing the pipes for some 4-2-1's fit the good starter and be happy!
    Hah! My 1983 Datsun 280ZX, Red 2 seater w/ black custom leather interior, T-Top in the garage...

    Sadly, the clutch is gone, I've been thinking of selling it since I hardly drive it, thought maybe I could get a new CPP3 and 4x5 expert drum and also pay off my credit card with the car sale, it's one of the few without body rot.

    Wouldn't be very ME, I've never smoked, not once, (green stuff I mean) I do occasionally have a cigar (once a year) but that's it.

    My 3rd center break light goes in and out and I get that light bulb out issue when that happens.

    My trunk light won't come on either and it makes me crazy because I can never see in there, and I can't trace the wires to any problem....

    I vaguely recall the Morris Minor fuel pump. Wasn't it a diaphragm design, operated by solenoid which occasionally could 'stick' at some point in it's movement? A judicious light tap with a nylon mallet could free it. The pump body was made of zinc (or a zinc alloy) so a large bang with a steel hammer might crack it . . . That car had an engine bay designed for a wide flat-four engine, but fitted with a slim inline-four pointed vertically instead. Lots of room to work on those machines
    Spot on.

    Apologies to all for being (partially) guilty for taking this thread way OT.

    Maybe one of the teeth on the gears of your clutch has broken off and is jamming it?

    In working order? If so - Excellent!

    As for edge markings, that would be a complicated thing to add as the film is nade in a large size then guillotined and stacked (with protective paper between? I can't remember). In order to edge mark it, it would need to be separated out, exposed and stacked again.

    Really not worth the bother.

    no idea. I really should pull the current starter apart and see if a clean/brush adjustment makes it any better. I generally only take the car out once a year on New Years day so not something I'm desperate to fix
