    I think I might have a couple of those in the garage loft (having built two AKs and never fitted them).

    I thought the needles had the equivalent of dampers on them to stop them bouncing about all over the place?

    Rover V8 starter issues

    Starter motor spins freely on the bench, but on the car all I get is rapid clicking.

    Engine turns over if you put it in 5th and push the car forward.

    Any ideas?
