Fantastic :y

Completed some more Dexta items on the list:

Made and fitted the battery and starter cables
Fixed the starter motor (a poor previous overhaul by a pro, didn't solder the brush braids!)
Fitted the horn
Made and fitted the horn loom
Fitted the ignition/lights switch
Buzzed out the wiring loom to check its fitted correctly
Filled with oil
Check valve clearances (It would appear I had set them  ;D)
Check injector pump timing (It would appear that I did set this also  :D)
Pop some fuel in
Prime the low pressure fuel system
Fettle the injector pump  (not pumping on one cylinder)
Swear at the primer pump leaking (aftermarket part after mine disappeared)
Prime the high pressure fuel lines.

Go for a start and away she went, all three cylinders with no bother at all.

Shut it off and fill the cooling system, water pissing out the centre of the radiator  :'( (new one ordered, not eBay  ;D)

Rather than start a new thread thought would add on to this one.

Backing up?
Backed up all my contact numbers (Samsung S4, Samsung S7 Edge & OPPO A92020) :y

Same with photo's even though the OPPO wasnt simply USB cable to the PC like the Galaxy's. :y

Is there any recomened software out there for backing up text messages off all the phones.  (Would be nice t back up conversations off Facebook as well - but I allways want too much )

TIA :y

Samsung Smart Switch will backup your whole phone to PC.

Took advantage of Samsung's trade in and discount offer.

Swopped 2 A10's for S6's.

I forgot to mention delivery (just to make TB jealous) ordered 6pm, arrived following day at 9:30am.

Those old Daimlers weren't really built for hustling ;D

Not sure about that. Some years ago, my Dad was taking my Mum somewhere years ago in a DS420 and wound it up to around 95 .... my Mum was completely oblivious to the speed.  ;D ;D

I agree, I had a mate who was a funeral director, weekends were for weddings, if he was short of drivers for the weddings he use to rope me in to drive one of the Daimlers.

They could certainly shift when needed to.

I remember one Sunday lunchtime, we were having a game of snooker in the club, his mother rang and said there was a body to collect from Gloucester morgue.

I went along for the ride in the Daimler hearse, he was clocking 125 mph down the M5.

I've had some for a million years, never won a penny.

Everyone I know with some win small amounts regularly, earning between 1.2 and 1.4%.

I never won a penny on the lotto either.

Ever wondered if its you ;D

Yes, it's broken  :y

Job jobbed, many thanks to all those who have advice, esp that DTM chap, who had to tolerate some daft questions today.

He reckons 40 mins.  Took me over 2hrs ;D.  Next time would be quicker, obviously. Hope there isn't a next time though ;D

It's an age thing 8)
