General Discussion Area / Bloody fuses...
« on: 13 February 2018, 19:15:41 », not that pesky fuse19 fella ;D

Plugged in my wanky Anker USB charger thing earlier, and was greeted with a huge bang - big enough I thought I might have to go for an exploratory wipe in case some poo leaked out.

I have a socket with a 4 way extension lead plugged into, which in turn has one of the UPS's, the powerline adapter and a further 6 way extension lead (which is conveniently placed for stuff that gets plugged in and out regularly).  It was in this 6 way one that I was plugging in the Anker shite.

It took out the 13A fuse in the plug of the 6 way, the 13A fuse in the body of the 4 way, the 13A in the plug of the 4 way, and the ring main trip.

What it didn't take out was the 3A in the Anker's plug.

Need to buy some more 13A fuses now, I've depleted my stock ;D

General Car Chat / Rumbling noise from rear
« on: 12 February 2018, 18:56:26 »
Speed dependent rumbling noise, but doesn't change when going left or right.

Wheel bearing still family favourite?  If it was a prop bearing, that would be a much higher frequency presumably?

What are peeps using. Now the Halfords -20C stuff is at a silly £5.63 (trade), I need to start looking at other options, esp given the way Mrs TB gets through the stuff in TBE.

TripleQX is out, as the remaining 25l of unopened stuff got chucked.

Any other brands people use work well, both on cleaning performance and resistance to freezing?  Round these parts, there are no independent type factors, its all Halfords, Euroshite and GSF etc.

General Discussion Area / Heating advice
« on: 12 January 2018, 18:04:06 »
I had to drain down central heating to replace a part (DTM - had to replace olives as well, else it weeped), and what came out was black-ish, but also had black bits in as well.

Worth running a cleaner through, then drain again, before refilling with 2 bottles of inhibitor?

General Discussion Area / Dilemma solved

Wondering why the slug was so slow this morning, already 30m late....

Driver just come on PA, she’s a woman. ‘Nuf said

Silly bint has no idea why we’re so late, but it’s kinda expected with the Chiltern Slug

General Car Chat / Oil. How hard can it be.
« on: 06 November 2017, 19:56:11 »
Grrrr. I swear most of these specs are there just to make it impossible, so you end up buying the properly expensive stuff  >:(

Found a couple that meet the spec, at a not too outrageous £30 for 5l.

I hope actually changing it is easier than trying to find it ;D.  Guessing not, seeing as no dipstick, and all geared up for sucking out (but does have a sump plug, but its a pig to get to).  Chuck in 5l, wait 10m, then read the level, and repeat from there?

General Discussion Area / That time of year again...
« on: 06 November 2017, 18:16:49 »
...she wants to know what toys I want for Crimbo.  And, as usual, I have no idea.

Can the OOF membership give me inspiration?

Shit, she's right. Its now November. Apparently I said she could have the central heating switch on in November...

General Car Chat / Public transport

Is pointless.

Another day, and again the slug is chugging along at 35mph.

Car is so much less hassle, even taking into account the average modern tree hugging child on board shitbox drivers. Esp Nissan drivers

Still, made for an entertaining evening sat in a car park in Winslow!

General Car Chat / Tunnie style

Fed up with picking up silly fines for work put me on work to rule ;D

So my trip to Sheffield yesterday was driven at the speed limit.  I thought with less than half a tank when I set out I was going to have to fill up. But it made it there and back on quarter of a tank, if the gauge is to be believed.  It will need filling up before Colindale tomorrow though, as it had a special treat on the way back from work today...   ...a proper spanking.
