I seem to recall the pickup pipe is part of the tank, not the valveset

I'd run it down and look for signs of corrosion like Entwood's experience by removing the valve gear.

I think if you change the tank, you are supposed to recertify it  :-\

Now we need to apply the rule of Opti when deciding on our new prime Minister,,,, Would you or not.  I await the Lord's results.
Eff me no!  We'd get that pig ugly stupid bint from Liberty.

And there was me thinking we couldn't get any more bolloksed.

Rather than being caused by Brexit, it might have actually stood a chance of survival if Brexit had happened earlier.
Pass me a bit of what you've been smoking ;D

(Hard) Brexit *will* bugger up your biggest export market, as immediately you are more expensive, and more hassle (thus cost) to deal with. I don't think anyone disagrees with that (ignoring those that still think the EU will roll over and let us kick them in the knackers, despite the evidence)


Whether or not British Steel could have survived long term under any circumstance is open for debate, and will never be known - but the new owners and investors seemed upbeat - but very, very, very clearly and obviously, as the whole world predicted, Brexit has definitely sent it on its way prematurely.

I know the offset is quite different, so your mileage may vary.

I seem to recall Vectra tyres sizes are "odd" compared to what we are used to on our Omegas.

China has needed (and produced) a load of steel for itself.  The expansion in buildings, infrastructure and general manufacturing has created a massive demand within their country.

Although they export a fair chunk, its not as much as you think, as its deemed poorer quality than most.

It'll be painted as a victim of BREXIT
Its what "we" voted for.

Every man and his dog could see that coming.  We've effectively shut off a sizeable chunk of their market, by making it uncompetitive.  And it absolutely, most definitely will not be the last of the British Manufacturing sector to die. Plain simple economics, so simple even I can grasp it, makes that a certainty.

In the case of British Steel, nobody from Europe was going to place orders, for fear that by the time it was delivered, it'd be slapped with an extra tariff.  And investors could see the only ever outcome, so stopped investing.  This comes as no surprise to absolutely anyone.

But is what "we" wanted.

Also, Jaguar only employs young fragrant receptionists with good tits.
You clearly haven't been to the MK dealer. A minger even by MK's low standards.  In fact, I was looking for an Adams Apple, as I was unconvinced.

A white Caster Semenya perhaps..... :)
Who?

And this one was neither white or dark...

Things have changed a lot obviously, won't comment on everything but as for the 3 foot comment it is the six metre rule on proper sites, we both love it & have had everything over the last 45 years from a tiny tent to our present 26 foot twin axle caravan, believe me after my time in the forces this is not " roughing it "😎 We can afford to eat out if we wish but like to cook & eat outdoors preferably, but as I said understand it is simply not for some people.

I have to say, being able to self-cater is great on holiday, especially when abroad and the local markets yield lots of interesting produce to use. I quickly get bored of mediocre hotel food or having to eat out every night. My choice of camper might be a canvas one in the boot of the Omega, but there is a lot to be said for self-sufficiency on holiday, IMHO.
I rarely stay in Hotels for pleasure for this very reason. We nearly always go self catering, irrespective of whether Mrs TB has any intention to cook.

We go to Cyprus at least annually, always a villa, just so we don't have to be regimental like in hotels.  And the local tavernas are always a million times better than bland hotel food, particularly the all-inclusive tasteless shite you get.


We still occasionally take the tent away.  Generally I make her cook just one night, as there is something unique about camping al-fresco, even if its just bangers and mash. I completely agree with Tilbo on that. Though we then usually eat out most of the time.

But I cant be dealing with caravans or campers. Too cramped. Too inconvenient getting it there and back. That's before you take into account costs.

Fairly certain all the later (post 2000) K series take same length belt, only varies if it has a/c.

Any factor should be able to supply with just a "A/C?" Y/N question.

Unless I'm supposed to be looking at pics of the exterior, or a dartboard, that hasn't worked ;)
