Also Brake Switch.

Sort out why its not turning over first, then tackle the Immobilizer issue, if it still is an issue.

Still 55.7 pence a litter around here  ::) :y

Oh sorry, you use petrol and tractor fuel do you  :P ;D

Damm, 55,7 thats cheap, you Northerners get all the good deals, I have to pay 55.9 at my Local Morri's, although if I venture another 7 miles I can get LPG at Sainsburys for 54.9.


That's not bad.

You only have morrisons close on 55.7. No other supermarket sells it  :(

The next nearest garages are on the A63 / M62 and the price takes the piss  :(
Yea NE London is pretty good for cheap LPG, problem with Morri's is the Pumps are always breaking down when there not running out.

Theres even a Shell Garage in Barking off the Ring Road that tries to compete, normally around 1 or 2p more than Morri's or Sainburys, which is handy, in fact I tend to use that when Im passing as aswell as the 2 Pumps mixed with the Petrol ones theve got a dedicated LPG only Pump near the Tyre Pump, which is really nice being able to drive in without queing, Pay and Drive off, well worth it for the sake of a couple of P per Litre.  :y

I used super unleaded when the weather's like this, so the current price pleases me not. :(
I didnt check SU, probably another 10p more or something, rarely use these days unless theres a Deal on.

Talking of deals Shell Drivers Club keep sending me Bonus Points, well sort off, I can get an extra 70 Drivers points if I fill up with more than 50 of Super Unleaded in any 7 Day period, now let me thinks thats an 70 points, er, a massive 35p incentive per week to pay an extra 4 more for SU and get less off it over normal.  ::) and to think these people actually get paid to think this rubbish up.  >:(

So as I've deleted it[in part because I couldn't scroll down it to read what it said]what if anything happens because I've done nothing about it?
It's only in the deleted file at the moment,so if needed I can retrieve it.
depends who it was from and for what, if its anything thats not going to effect you then I wouldn't worry about.

Ive have a couple to do with Work, with no option to delete or comment on any of it, bottom line being something along the lines of 'Agree with it, Sign it, Return it, otherwise We will take you off Our Approved Suppliers List'  >:(

The irony of spamming me with several unsolicited emails asking to consent to further emails I never explicitly agreed to (or had to as part of joining a service) is not lost on me.
Its a Legality they have to do it, or suffer the consequences.

Or didn't disconnected battery beforehand.Always the best option when swapping seats.
I never have  :-[
It will bite you one day, but I suppose having access to a Tech 2 isnt so much of an issue.  :)

I'm a real wimp, I diss the Battery and then leave for 10 mins whilst drinking Tea and trying to remember where I left the Fisrt Aid Kit.  :-[

The First Aid bit is just in case I have another occurrence of smashing my Face when the Steering suddenly decides it will come off after all.   >:(  ;D

Yep, new rule within EU about other Peeps or Organisations holding your Personal Data and what they intend to do or not to do with it, and how you have a right to know what there policies are, or words to that effect.

In a 3.0 set up with the correct Diff, both the Manual (3.7) and the Auto (3.9) will run around the 2625 to 2650 RPM mark at 70MPH allowing for some Speedo error, your probably find your 70MPH is actually around 67/68 in true speed as the speedo's tend to read high, even on the Ex Police with Calibrated Speedo's they run around the same RPM at a tue speed of 70.

What I can tell you is if you run a Manual set up with a Auto diff (3.9) on the 3.0 setups you be doing around 3000RPm at 70, which is a tad anoying on a Motorway Cruise IMHO.

I cant remember now if the 2.5 (never owned one) had the same 5th gear ratio as the 3.0's, seem to remember hearing the very early ones were and the later prior to going to 2.6 were slightly different.

Here you go, just checked my hand written Notes from a few years back -

PFL 1994 to 1997/8
 2.5 Manual 5th Gear Ratio 0.85 Diff 3.7
 3.0 Manual 5th Gear Ratio 0.81 Diff 3.7

MFL 1997 to 2000
 2.5 Manual 5th Gear Ratio 0.85 Diff 3.7
 3.0 Manual 5th Gear Ratio 0.81 Diff 3.7

FL 1999 to 2000/1
 2.5 Manual 5th Gear Ratio 0.85 Diff 3.9
 3.0 Manual 5th Gear Ratio 0.81 Diff 3.7

FL 2000 to 2003
 2.6 Manual 5th Gear Ratio 0.85 Diff 3.9
 3.2 Manual 5th Gear Ratio 0.81 Diff 3.7

R25 box cogs are forged, R28 / 30's are ground out from billet  :y

R25's are used on the 2ltr, 2.2, 2.5, 2.6 and 2.5 td.
R28's are used on 3ltr's and are good for a 3.2 conversion.

R30's was used exclusively for the 3.2 traffic cars  :y
They also used the R30 on the 2.5DTi 24V Euro Diesel, the one we never got in the UK, but Im guessing with different Gear Ratios though being a Oil Burner.  ;)
