Removed the battery from TBE, looks like a sudden failure.  Just running a recovery charge with it off the car, but think its likely to be toast.

Battery from the Superior Silver Bullet fitted - if it starts this morning, clear not a heavy drain from the car :)
that's the thing about "maintenance free batteries" fit and forget, then a dry cell will bite you on the arse at the most inconvenient time

And Battlebus found and collected whilst TBE is off the road.  That damn thing can always be relied on.

yes, the zaf tractors are very resilient , just be careful with all that raw power  ;D

I'm looking at blanking the EGR though on ours ,trouble is, the zaf is so resilient ,i keep forgetting to look which type of EGR blank i need( the simple plate or the plug with ecu emulator that you wire to the MAF)  :-[
Pre 2003 had the vac operated EGR, and will need some ecu love. Post 2003 had the electric EGR with feedback, so also needs ecu love.

Only time I've used breakdown (personally, and not in works vehicles) is when the Bullet died in France in 2005.  I think the company was Euro Assist?  I know at the time, the forums gave them bad press, but I couldn't rate them higher.

I'm still amazed that you all seem to care, given that apparently none of you watch it?  :)
I care deeply, because it breeds a society of, well, todays society.

So can Kirk now apply to visit the other wankstain hell bent on drumming up support for those that need culling. ie, that idiot from Radio 2

That is because of course we have a 'Reprensative' government which, contrary to popular belief, means the MP's are elected to act on our behalf, but actually do what they think is right and not necessarily what their constituents want.
And obeying their constituents is precisely why democracy doesn't work. Too many people with differing views.  Dictorial options solve all that.

Take your Brexit example - the country voted to leave (and thus we should), but you can bet the most vocal people writing to their local MP are those not getting what they want, so I imagine that MPs are hearing a lot of anti Brexit views.  But its similar on any subject.


And dictators can shoot people, so that gets my vote.  Thumbs up to the North Korean nutter who used an anti aircraft gun to punish his head of (defence I think).  Proper job.

Never been further than Fort William.  I really fancy a tour round the whole area above the Great Glen.

I just paid one of the 2 well known national breakdown companies 100 for 15 months cover.  Cover is the personal type, so covers any car, and includes national recovery.

Its unlikely we'd ever use it, as I'd probably just tow her home anyway, but with Mrs TB blatting up and down the motorway every day, and me being away for work a lot, its just piece of mind...

Omega General Help / Re: Chip Tuning 2.6 V6 (Petrol)
« on: 14 May 2019, 20:32:53 »
The 2.6/3.2 are self learning ecus, so there's not much to do with them.

Are your current problems on lpg or petrol?
I would say that with both but it appears before with lpg, I will do more kms with petrol to confirm it
Fault needs eliminating on petrol. The LPG will bugger up the trims, then you're fighting a moving target.


Do you think that going with 3.0 engine and 2.6 electronic favors the failure to appear?
Doubt it

believing in democracy and personal freedoms, subject to the law, and not a dictatorship
They are not mutually exclusive.  Whether the laws are made democratically* or in a dictorial manner is largely irrelevant.  Ultimately, we still believe in our Monarchy ;)

Some (many?) dictators become corrupt, and that's a big problem. But then do many democratically elected* leaders.


* In reality, we know that democracy doesn't work like the idealism its envisaged it should.  In fact, I'd argue quite the opposite, and because we have too many do-gooders and nimbys, anything that is agreed is watered down, unworkable, complex, expensive uselessness.
