Please respect that yours isn't the only opinion.
I don't have a problem with a differing opinion
at all, just with people who can't take on board that other people have different experiences
from them, and try to make out my real life experience of something is wrong because it doesn't tally with theirs.
The fact is that back in the early 200s this and other MG and Rover related forums were already littered with posts from people who were suffering failed sectors in their car clocks - 200s, 400s, 600s; all models from before the clocks were supplied by Pektron
Similarly with the insistance that "they always fail again" - it is the nature of the putty used to connect the ribbon cable that it will dry and shrink again, but if it does so after a short time, it probably wasn't heated up sufficiently to start with.

Some may be hot enough to do the job, but I prefer a heat gun which can provide more than enough.
