It will have an adjustment to make. You unscrew the old one and screw in the new till it stops, come out maybe half or full turn or so, plug it in and check adjustment. You have to unplug it if you need more than a couple of turns.
Hey Boys, so I have 1985 Ford xf powered by a 351c. I have lost brake lights. All other lights work and all electrics are sweet. I changed the bulbs still no brake lights. A mate mentioned it may be a fuse so i checkes the fuse box and cant locate a brake light fuse.
Any suggestions to what the problem may be and how I can go about getting them working again?
Belt deflection for them as quoted by factory is 10-11 mm. If you look at the top mounting bolt and bracket you will notice that it’s on kinda rack and pinion system if it hasn’t been stripped out. Just loosen all the mounting bolts a little then loosen the top bolt and rotate inner bolt (gear driven) on the mounting bracket rack till you get tight tension and tighten outer bolt
