Mate had one when I had the standard MGB roadster ... he carried the obligatory bag of cement in the boot to counteract the grossly overweight front end !! Went very well in a straight line, but any attempts to corner at any sort of speed were fraught with danger, the front would do its own thing at a moments notice...  :)
The MGC was the one with a cast iron straight 6 Leyland lorry engine at the front.

The aluminium block Rover V8 doesn't weigh any more than the 4 cylinder B series engine

Yup you are correct .. old age affecting the memory .....  'twas a "C" that he had ....   :y

We can only hope that she has got the message that the backstop is unacceptable.  ::)

Its not her who needs to get that message .. it is the EU .....

You can't negotiate with someone who won't negotiate ... and at the moment they are saying take it or leave it .. so I say leave it .. no deal  :)

Omega General Help / Re: Battery removal
« on: 13 December 2018, 12:14:13 »
Can someone please advise me on how to remove a battery from an O3 2.6 omega CDX?

I need to remove it so as to put the battery on charge as I have let it run down.  When I tried to remove it, I took off the negative terminal strap first as advised by the hand book which should according to the book should have stopped the Power sounder going off but that didn't work which resulted in the alarm screaming like a banshee.
I am not the most technically / mechanically minded person so I would really appreciate advice please.

Graham

Ignition ON
Ignition OFF
Disconnect battery within 30 seconds ... this stops the power sounder going off.

I always loosen the bolts on the terminals first as it takes more than 30 seconds to undo them !!

All those "on the payroll" (ministers at all levels) must be assumed to have voted in her favour, as they cannot vote against the PM without resigning first. Apparently its a serious constitutional matter.

On a public vote .. yes.. but this was a "secret" ballot.

Seat mechanism "clunking" but not moving ... check very thoroughly with a torch and mirror for any coins/keys etc that may be jammed in the moving bits, both motors/cogs/levers etc etc ...  IME its usually the "fore/aft" that they get jammed in, but have had 1 euro coin (bloody thing) get jammed in the "up/down" .... especialy on the left hand side where it is difficult to see (and happened to be the coin pocket side of my shorts on holiday) .... I was, eventually, able to spot the little sod, but it took a lot of faffing to remove it ....   :(  I was about to resort to removing the seat to get to it when I managed to get it to move with a rather long screwdriver and a bit of brute force !!

The real problem behind the deal with the EU is actually very simple ..

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-46542566

"Leo Varadkar and Jean Claude Juncker both agreed the withdrawal agreement is "the best outcome available".

They agreed that the proposed deal "cannot be reopened or contradicted"."

The majority of her backbenchers voted against her. That is very significant. Ministers cant vote against her unless they resign first, so have can easily have a different agenda to backbenchers.
This and the fact she has announced she wont stay on for much longer means she has lost most of the authority she had, which wasn't  that much to start with.

Other than quoting the BBC/Daily Fail/Labour party idiots .... just how do you know this ?? I was under the distinct impression it was a "secret" ballot ???

A small fact that seems to have escaped some of the very biased commentators tonight ...   :)

What is the point ??

The country voted to leave the EU at a referendum

Both major parties at the General Election manifestoed to Obey that referendum

Parliament decided to leave on the 29 March, with or without a deal

The EU have offered a "deal" that is unacceptable to Parliament, and are refusing to renegotiate.

The only other way is to leave without a deal.

Just how/where/why does a change of leadership change ANY of those facts ???

If the thought process is that the EU will renogiate with a new leader, then dream on .... it won't happen.

that "3.2 L ,214.6  bhp, 149  mph engine looks a little on the small side too  ;D
looks more like the 2198 cc engine that it says it is on tax inquiry

Which is exactly what others of this type being advertised in the past have been powered by.

The "5 seats" is strange as well, along with the "4 doors" which the apparent seller claims should read 7!  Something wrong here. Is this actually a hearse? :o ::) ??? ???

I certainly would not touch it for any money! ;)

I believe it is a stretched limo, not a hearse, ....   6 doors, 3 rows of seats, ( 7 seats plus driver) and a boot ..  :)

so, linked with the numerous other errors, the guy appears to not know what he is selling .... touch not with a bargepole IMHO ..  :)

But the seller claims it has 7 doors, not the 4 stated in the screed :o :o ::) ;)

All you have to do is look at the pictures and count ......   :)

So .. he has got the engine wrong, the number of doors wrong, the number of seats wrong, its taxed but not MOTd (strange waste of money ??) He says the MOT expired in September .. but it was in July (18th to be exact) and its only done 800 miles (photo milage - last MOT) in the past 18 months ....

I wonder what else is "incorrect" ....   :)

I don't do streaming, or anything illegal, more concerned with mobiles used for checking bank details whilst abroad etc.

I have read that they slow down your internet connection :-\

They certainly can, think about the logic of it .. all those who subscribe are connecting to that server and then to the internet ... so it depends how big the servers connection to the internet is, and how many slices it has to be cut up into .... A bit of research into contention ratios etc etc.. or simpy read the forums and see what folk say about changes to speed
