Re: Ticking noise on brake

make sure you have the TOP hat bushes in the right way round these are the inserts on the calliper bolts look like a top hat ..if they are in the wrong way round they will catch on the disk bolts and sound like ticking ..i know i had the same issue

Re: Not starting

just as an end note ...to eliminate the hour of checking fuses and relays just short the 2 pins on the starter solenoid ..( to the side of the battery) this will let you know if the starter circuits are good ..if it cranks they are fine and fuses and relay are ok if not start checking fuses and relays
