General Car Chat / Smart Roadster engine mount

I think I've got to the bottom of the thumping on starting off if I don't use a gentle throttle. This is the front engine mount  ???

Did anyone watch this last night on Ch 4?

It makes you have to wonder what goes on between the ears of some Americans  ??? ??? ??? The ex soldier trying to get his FOUR year old girl to show an interest was beyond belief IMHO. Surely a 4 yr old should be playing with dolls etc ..... not a bloody rifle!

I know I'm weeks late, but I was on holiday at the time. I was looking through BBC's news and just found out he died a couple of weeks ago.  :( :(

General Car Chat / Another Omega bites the dust
« on: 11 July 2014, 14:57:53 »
I've just received an invoice from a recovery firm for 'removal, storage & disposal of vehicles....... ' of what was my Omega (DVLA must be on a go slow)

Presumably he's written it off on the motorway somewhere. I knew I should have removed the Irmscher 'wooden steering wheel from it before it went  >:(

Shame that, it had never wanted for anything  :'(

General Discussion Area / satalite telly gubbins
« on: 09 July 2014, 18:25:50 »
I have a Maxview twin lnb satalite set-up for my caravan. The twin co-ax cable goes from the twin lnb on the dish to two connectors on the back of the reciever.
What's the difference between this set up & a single lnb & reciever that only has a single cable? Would it work if just one cable was used?  :-\ I was looking at replacing our caravan telly and noticed that some have a built in Free-sat reciever as well as the Free-view reciever but they only have a single F connector. Could I use just one or the other co-ax cables from the twin lnb?

While his name might not ring any bells I'm pretty sure most of you know him for one reason or another particularly as Warren in Porridge or Captain Hans Geering in Allo Allo

General Discussion Area / wiring help
« on: 06 June 2014, 11:33:56 »
I recently bought a cigarette plug for my travel fridge  http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=151234620911 Just opened it up to wire it, expecting to find screw terminals to fit the wires .... but no such luck.

Am I soldering my fridge wires to where the resistor & diode are already soldered so the diode & resistor are across the feed to the fridge?  :-\

General Car Chat / seats & MOT
« on: 26 May 2014, 15:20:05 »
The MOT is due on the Smart ..... just tried to tax it & realised it runs out the day before the tax is due so unable to renew till it's been re-MOT'd. I'm leak chasing at the moment so have all the carpets out & just one seat (driver's  ::) ) fitted.

Q ..... does it need both seats fitted to be MOTable?  :-\  :-\  :-\
