Oil pressure low when temp.up


Hi it sounds like you have either worn piston rings /dirty air cleaner /the wrong grade oil in engine as if your temp goes up to high above normal and you have a 10w 40, then change to 30 w 50 and change the oil filter and thermostat,as your sump is also your gear box and you have a gear box heating up the oil just standing still, so do this first and let me know. as piston rings and valve guides are a big and costly job.

Chances are that not all grounding wires are earthed. You may have a floating ground that is feeding back through the lights. Try grounding the heater directly to start your diagnosis.

Is it easier to replace wheel arches on a austin


It is unusual to have the arches rot out (about the only part that is usually sound) I know the inners are available and inexpensive, probably easier to weld in new ones that patch up the old, certainly better for the car.
