    Can you clarify the light that's on? Is this in the rev counter with the spanner through the car (engine management), or an "engine" type symbol elsewhere on the dash.

    The spanner through car, if on, I'd have thought you would have noticed a performance difference as this should be in emergency running mode. The other one I can think of is the emissions light. Check your handbook if you can, as from memory this is OK to use unless flashing, although there is a danger of damage to the cat.

    I've got the same regulator but the problem is the old regulator is cyclindrical and the adaptors supplied are not good enough!

    We can converse when we meet.
