  • Confidence trickle

    THERE'S little that can go wrong if you use a trickle charger that's designed to maintain the battery at the fully charged level and not keep charging it. If left on charge for a long period without a function, a battery can explode.

  • Put the brakes on a rattle

    ACCORDING to Valiant expert Des Seaton, loose brake calipers are the most likely cause. Also check the lower shock absorber bolts and make sure they are tight.

  • Metric switch

    IN THE 1970s you could buy a sticker and apply it to the instrument face or the gauge itself to convert it to read metric, but they haven't been produced since demand fell away in the mid-1970s. If the speedo in the Valiant has a flat face it can be reprinted with a metric scale, or it might be possible to correct the speedo without touching the face by installing a ratio box in the speedo cable. To find out what you can do with the Valiant, call Rodger Howard at Howard Instruments on 9457 4755.
