General Car Chat / Re: Foot pump
« on: 12 January 2019, 19:41:16 »
The foot pumps available these days all have flimsy frames that bend the first time you step on them, IME. You then take them back and get them changed and next time the flimsy plastic T piece that connects the pressure gauge breaks off.

I have recently bought a reliable one, though. It was an old Dunlop Major from a vintage shop. Rescued it from being turned into a table lamp by some hipster, no doubt. ;D

Omega General Help / Re: Astra H SRi 2.0 Turbo brakes on Omega?

The one thing I've noticed from hanging around various car forums for the last 20 years, building a kit car and so on, is that you can never have a setup where the brake pedal feel suits everybody's tastes.  ;)

I really think he should have got over all the self-pity in private first.

Yes, he's had to end his career earlier than perhaps would have been his desire, but he is a sportsman who has reached the top of his game, earned a knighthood and no doubt millions of pounds along the way. A bit of gratitude to those who got him there no doubt by pandering to his every whim since childhood and some recognition that, in an age where many are on the poverty line, he's been incredibly fortunate in life, might have put him in a better light, IMHO.

Is the ecu fuse the same as the gearbox fuse, number 9 under the steering wheel
Not sure on the number on a PFL, but there's just the one fuse that powers all the gearbox electronics. :y

Doh  !
I'm 1100+ posts in and it turns out my watch is not an genuine Omega seamaster and it's too late to send it back to ebay China to get my 2.99 refund  ;D
With a bit of luck it won't go rusty, then. ;D

Yup, the shop in Brakkers is good as well. Avoid the van that hogs most of the limited parking spaces in town - matters not how many Stellas your supped, it still tastes of paraffin.

So would your cooking if you had nowhere to wash your hands after filling the generator up with diesel. ;)

I wonder if TheBoy will develop a tribute to him, in order to keep "Tim" company? ;D

I have to say the Signum is superior to the Omega. I believe the Signum was designed by a team working for NASA. :) 8)
You mean that they designed the handling to be just in the sweet spot within the moon's gravitational field?

Explains a lot. ::)

I'm pretty sure the Saturn V was FWD just like the Signum. ;D
They got away with it by not flying it in close proximity to any hedges or ditches, though.

I always chuckle at Chinese menus that contain the "Mixed Meat Special" or "Mixed Meat Chow Mein" .. they're always very non-specific on the mystery meat.
Probably less hassle from the RSPCA that way. :-X

Nope. Latin was pretty much as pointless as games when I was at school. I remember our latin teacher seemed really old (she was probably about 50, but, from the perspective of a 15 year old...!). Every time someone muttered "Dead Language" under their breath she used to say with a frail cackle "Latin's as alive and living as I am today!". Oh, how we chuckled. ;D

Still, if we're banning things, let's ban caravans before we ban drones :P

Except the ones that sell kebabs, please!

Obviously! ;) ;D

 Exactly what is in kebab meat or is it better if I don't ask?..... :-X

Actually, we have a kebab shop here which is so good that I go there sober, as well as pi##ed. :o

I have a Chicken shish, though, rather than the generic "meat".  ;D

Only time I appreciated games lessons was when they decided that my time would be better spent learning Latin. ::)

Hotel21 in Fife has a Tech2, IIRC.

First things first, though, might be worth checking that the gearbox ECU fuse is OK, as, if the gearbox ECU has lost power, then it won't respond to a code reader!

Well worth checking the gearbox fluid level whenever there are problems, as said.

Also, make sure the 3 round connectors behind the battery are securely fastened, and the connectors where the loom enters the gearbox.

Beyond that, codes from the gearbox ECU would tell us what it's not ahappy about.

Nick, Kevin .. are you both me? ;D That sounds like my time at school, too. Football - "go in goal" (because you can't run); except I can't stop a ball, either. Cricket - "you go square leg" (pardon?); great, but if by poor luck the ball heads in my direction, I can't throw it far enough to get back to you ;D etc, etc.

I`d first try & dazzle you with yellow streak running down the middle of my back  :P

Better than a streak of yellow running down your inside leg .. which is what I'd have if Guffers was running toward me ;D ;D

Only time I got my own back was when they put me in for the 200m breast stroke at sports day for a laugh, no doubt. Unbeknownst to anyone else, "the statue" had been taught to swim by a military instructor at the command baths in Aldershot, and was pretty good.    ;D
