If the correct wattage globes are being used then check the connections to the lights and in the wires feeding the lights. I have had this problem a few times and its been a bad join or poorly seated globe. Actually the first thing you should do is check you have 12v at the lamp holder, if you do its the incorrect wattage if you dont its a bad join or earth.

Have not fixed the absence of brightly glowing indicators but though I needed to provide a little sneak peak of what's done.

Some "progress" today

Bonnet all buffed and installed, but redoing the air cleaner lid because the paint bubble - looking for stickers

Fixed the windscreen wiper motor not working problem .... it was one of the pins in the plug that goes to the switch was not in properly therefore not contacting.

Also the dash has to come out - I figured out why I can't find the nuts that hold on the wiper arms - I don't have the nuts for Kermit - I have 3 sets of wiper rods and I used Ute ones not Sedan ones that came originally on Kermit. Kermit had the ones that don't have nuts at all! That's a job for tomorrow.

swapped wiper rods, got all lights and indicators working, Drove on to the driveway for a picture opportunity.

Oh ... indicator lenses are now installed.

need to find a sympathetic club - don't want to waste $200 on a RWC just for club plates.

Hey Andrew (CADET 1200) did you just hear a whooooshing sound? - that was me lapping you on project cars- Wanna hear that again ?

last photo is proof that the engine is running - temp gauge works!

Got to do a little work to tidy up on Kermit.

Indicators all work- check
Lights all work - Check
Set the timing to about 15 BTDC and set points to 18 thou - check
adjusted choke and accelerator cables - check
charged up battery - check
made a clip to hold the heater control cable on the heater valve and it opens an closes - check

Runs well - check check check woohoo


Except there's a small leak in the heater valve......
I have had a search though the tech wiki and the heater that came with Kermit is marked NISSAN and SMITHS. That is why the heater cock valve is different. It must be a non JDM market thing. It also has screws holding the front on rather than the half moon spring clips like on the Ute (later versions).. the lever/control is not a loop but goes though a hole. Finally the electrics are on the right rather than the left.

I have searched the internet and can't find the exact heater cock valve to replace it with and I have had it apart more than once and it is not sealing properly so I would rather find the right part than change it over to something else if possible.

Here are some pictures of the heater for reference.... any ideas welcome
