Now, since I am an old guy, how does the front seat come out? 4 hidden bolts thru the floor? I might as well take it out to lay on the floor to play under the dash, and recover the seat while its out.

Thanks guys, I guess this is like a Landrover. To remove the clutch, step 1, remove the roof. Looks like I have to remove the front seat so I can be comfortable under the dash. The seat locating pin under my back wasn't pleasant. Breathe Fred breathe. This may be the time to sort out the rest of the annoying dash issues.

Ammeter in an 826

Greetings from the left coast.
The other day I was fiddling under the hood. Had been running the engine and shut it off to do something. Went to start it and it only cranked. No horn, lites, ignition , nothing. A little sleuthing and I found nothing thru the ammeter. Also, the needle was down scale with battery disconnected. When I bridged the ammeter, car started and everything worked. So, ammeter is open circuit. How does it come out and where do I send it to be repaired? Have been driving the Dowager regularly as my go for coffee and grocery getter. Also can the temp gage be serviced?
Cheers, Fred.

Finally got it to run properly. Distributor had numerous problems. Reset timing and carb and now it starts and runs properly. Have been using it to run errands and other short hauls. Now for the water pump leak and non charging. Thanks for the help.

The water pump is leaking. What is the correct packing and what length? I assume it is cut into rings with mitred offset joints? One step at a time.

What spark plugs are we using? I bought Champ 518/W18. Where on the heat range is this ?
