Hoping to give it a wash over the weekend. Its filthy and that really annoys me. Problem is its fickin freezing outside and toasty indoors.  ::)
Seems like about a fortnight ago it was far to hot to do anything other than sit in the shade and drink very cold beer.  :o

Funny you should say that, I was in Grenada then at 30 for 2 weeks ::) ::) ::).

A guide is always good, no matter how simple.  If only to show the next person how simple, even if they lack experience/confidence ;)

Post in Test, use whatever picture service suits, then nudge that Jimbob fella. He'll then move it to right area, add it to indexes, and move the images to OOF's own servers.

Agreed, it is sometimes difficult to remember that some people have never even picked up a spanner, and if OOF can convince even those that car repair is within the realm of - virtually - anyone, it will be a bonus. :y

Omega General Help / Re: x25xe caravan transmission conversion
« on: 14 December 2018, 12:20:35 »
Hi everyone,

Has anybody converted their opel b caravan with x25xe auto tranny to manual tranny? I am done with the auto tranny with all its problems. Also is there an alternative to the getrag r25 or 28 form other car makes or brands? Limited to the availibility of the getrag tranny here in the Philippines.

Thanks in advance.

Be much simpler to upgrade to an AR35 which is very robust. :y

« on: 11 December 2018, 22:08:04 »
having just nicely purchased a 20ltr oil drum it got me thinking it will be a tad awkward to measure 5 ltrs without the risk of spillage. so I may fix a tap to the drums lid. I wouldn't mind but I gave a lot of stuff away when we downsized house & a 12volt pump was amongst the stuff.

I got my tap from VX, turns the drum into a useful dispenser :y

Don't care what anyone says about American cars , I love them especially the Camaro & Mustang , had a Jeep Hemi for a short while & that was terrific can't beat a big V8.

Me too, the first one I drove was like this https://www.shannons.com.au/club/enthusiasts/wildweels/garage/1959-oldsmobile-rocket-88/ belonging to a USAF friend of mine. Lovely car. Short on gears but great on pulling in every sense. :-X

And one reason for this is that we now live in a throwaway society, such that it is cheaper to replace a mass produced part than pay the labour costs for troubleshooting. ??? :y

Thanks.  It is a saloon.  I'll have a look at the 0V (earth) connections and let you know the results.

Let us know as I have the same on my '51 3.2 saloon. :y

General Car Chat / Roadside repairs
« on: 09 December 2018, 11:24:47 »
I was musing on how much easier it was in my early days of motoring. A friend returning from leave in a pre-war Austin 10 or similar, threw a big end. He pulled into a lay by, drained and dropped the sump, fitted a set of big-ends, and still got back to camp without sanction. While cars are of course mechanically much more reliable these days, the sort of problems we encounter causing breakdown are exponentially more difficult to fix without suitable spares and equipment. :(
