Tenma is best of the budget generally, CPC have this one:

https://cpc.farnell.com/tenma/72-7780/digital-multimeter-handheld-3/dp/IN07413

No auto ranging but has auto power off and reasonable ranges and accuracy

or for a tenner more:

Thanks Mark. That one looks to be about the cheapest one they do with auto-shutoff. :y

I've always found the Tenma stuff epically good value for money. They work and maintain their accuracy really well.

Something like this: https://cpc.farnell.com/tenma/72-10390a/dmm-handheld-manual-3-5digit/dp/IN07410

Just in my price bracket. Does it Auto shut off?  :-\
Why? Are you getting forgetful?  :)

And you are? :-\ ;D

Fix the AVO :y

It is not a real one, just a small square black box that looks like a mini Avo. It has been good in its time, but does not work on all scales and will no longer zero.  :(

The Mondeo went in for  a recall, something to do with battery overcharging. Came back nice and shiny. Must check for recalls to get another free wash. ::)

if you need to work with any accuracy , spend on a good set of test leads/probes too

Check. :y
Leads sorted, now which meter do I stick them in. :-\ ;D

General Car Chat / Re: Volvo V70 2.4 D5 Oil Leak
« on: 26 September 2019, 19:22:32 »
As above, my 2004 V70 has an oil leak which appears to be welling up around an injector.  :-\

It's 100% oil, not diesel, and as far as I can tell there is a fitting kit available with clamp and seals for about £30, which I assume will solve the problem.  I don't know anything about injectors though and have never pulled one out, but it doesn't look too difficult.  :-\

Should oil be able to leak from an injector?  ???  :-\  ::)  ;D





Injector fitting kit linky.

Am I on the right track with this?  ???   TIA!  :y

No. Unless it is an oil cooled injector, which means it would have separate oil pipes attached!!! :y

I'm not impressed with the cheap one I bought as it doesn't auto shut-off, and no zero faciility, which wouldn't matter if it read zero!
Any recommendations for a replacement? The mini Avo I bought in Change Alley 50 years ago has now packed up. :(

« on: 23 September 2019, 22:07:09 »
We have two options, do something or do nothing. If we do reduce our carbon output to the required levels, but the climate change deniers are correct, the worse that happens is that the world becomes far more energy efficient, and   our descendants still survive. However, if we make no, or an insufficient, attempt, to reduce carbon output, and the scientists are correct, we will destroy the planet, and our descendants are no more.
It seems a no brainer to me. :y

Many moons ago I put radweld in one of my cars (I forget which) and forgot about it for the two years or so till I traded it. Cars were much more simple then, not so many things to get clogged by it.

Ahh yes, one of the must have items in the Holts " Sell your car" kit, along with Gungum, Isopon and Tyre black.  ::)

Might accept the £153 that Scrapmycar have offered and see what is available locally at the weekend  :D

Highly unlikely to be an Omega though :-X

Pity, as its time you did your recency training. ::)

I shall have to seek out a copy of the Nimrod book :y An aircraft which I believe started life as the DH Comet airliner?

Correct, a derivative of, and fitted with Spey 250 engines as opposed to the Comet Avons. The Mk1 Nimrod was a nicely over-powered A/C, and when on task, at the appropriate weight* for height, we progressively shut down engines, such that eventually we had two shut down. The power safety margin worked well on the on the 3 occasions I suffered Nimrod engine failures, although once when two failed together it was interesting. :-X :y

(*critical weight= weight at which the second engine may be shut down, and should an engine fail, the A/C can safely continue flight on one engine.)
