    Recent snap of your Westfield

    If only I knew ....! The car starts well (new battery), but runs roughly, and won't pull properly. I tried driving to the MOT garage last year, but had to give up, I just managed to get home again. I'm guessing it's more likely to be ignition related, so I am replacing components one by one. I replaced the points with an electronic gadget. I will try another set of plugs, then a new coil. I am fortunate to have other special cars, so sometimes the Westfield has a low priority! Geoff

    PC problem

    You could try running Task Manager (just type this into the Cortana box), and see if the virus scan is in the list of startup programs. Mine looks like this If you find it in the list, you can disable it. Then restart your computer and see if you can do the update. Geoff

Wiring is included. £50 for the pair, plus delivery if required. You are welcome to collect them from Ruislip in Middlesex. If you would like them posted, please let me know where you are and I'll get a delivery price for you. Do ask if you have any questions.

    LED Headlight bulbs

    There has been some discussion about LED bulbs in the classic car community. The consensus seems to be that if you have LED bulbs, the whole light fitting has to have been designed for them to be legal. This may happen for headlights, but if you want to use LEDs for your MG or Triumph brake lights to make them rather more visible, then that's not legal. It seems unlikely that anyone will make LED light fittings for classic cars. Geoff

    Points replacement

    Thanks for all your comments. There's no need to hide under stones! I'm not looking to spend much on the car at the moment. I don't know what cam is in the engine, and there doesn't seem much point in spending a lot on a full electronic ignition without a full engine rebuild, replacing the carbs with fuel injection, then getting a new gearbox, refurbing the diff, etc. I just want the car to run well so I can enjoy driving it. I hope it will be dry later on so I can have a go at setting the timing to see if that has a beneficial effect. Geoff
