Got another question.

Just found in the shed, 2 unopened 4L of Castrol GTX 15W 40 part synthetic that I got for the BMW. Can I get away with using this?

If not can I get away with mixing it 50/50 with 0W 40 part synthetic? I think this would work out @ 7.5W 40. Would this be safe to use or should I just use the proper 10W 40?

Forgot to ask how much oil does the 2.2 take?

Indeed. I cycle quite a bit and agree with most of the article, but cycling 2 abreast or in "packs" displays just the kind of lack of consideration to other road users that cyclists bleat about constantly. If you're in a group, the most sensible, considerate and safe way to cycle is to break yourself up into smaller groups of 2 or 3 who can easily and safely be overtaken by faster traffic, leaving gaps in-between into which a vehicle can pull if required.

This is what I suggested to a chap at work during one of our 'cycle banter' sessions. He cycles, both to work and with a club, so is passionate about cycling, thus making an easy target for friendly banter. So, I was very surprised when he admitted to me that they had been stopped by the Police for ......... a riding style that was deemed selfish to other road users. Not an offence as far as I know, but frustrating for others if you get stuck behind a long line of them.

I do give cyclists plenty of room, but I'm still amazed by these super fast cyclists that fly through the traffic. A bit of common sense from all parties is all that's required.  :y
If cyclists were included in the no undertaking guidelines, I feel there would be less danger to them, but clearly this would defeat the object for most cyclists travelling through heavy traffic.  ::)

Must admit, I do smile when I see a cycling thread on here, as I know you are all sooooo tolerant of cyclists.   ;) ;D ;D

Aldermaston any good

Ditches are a bit close round there.

The blokes with rifles are a bit of a distraction too. ::)

Just playing devilís advocate here, but what if the ar$e who hit your vehicle, decided to claim through his/her insurance policy as there was more damage to his/her vehicle than was done to yours, then surely there claim will involve giving the details of the vehicle they hit.......yours.
Theyíre company could feedback to yours expecting a claim to be made, but if you havenít informed them......well, youíve then broken your side of the contract.

As said above, have a good read of your policy wording, and if it states to let them know, personally I donít think you have a choice then.

Just my tuppence worth!

Good luck!

Just remembered, so as long as belt can be twisted through 90 degrees in the centre portion of the longest run.

That's then sufficient.

Check again once run as it'll stretch.

No special tools required, just replace the tensioner at the same time, from somewhere like Burton power.

Belt tension can be checked using a Ford gauge, but most people check it along its longest run for a certain amount of flex.

I have a 3 door cosworth myself, can check what the workshop guide says, but I think it refers to the tension gauge I mentioned about.

Timing marks are critical, for cams, dizzy and crank.

I think there's a case for a lucrative whiplash claim!  :D

Yes I got a shock when I saw the Police officer and hurt my neck. ;D
