Whack it back in with a smear of liquid metal. That'll be alright!  :y


Well said sir,  when's that bolt ever going to be removed again. If not whack it back in, ..

Another quality repair by fixit bodgey inc.

Thanks chaps.

Duly noted re. busting the tap, as always I shall go gently and apply some suitable lubricant.  :y

However the job will have to wait until Sunday when I have some time to look at it properly.

I bet you say that to all the girls. :)

At the risk of steering this thread dangerously back on topic, I finally tapped the threads successfully today (two weeks off any kind of physical activity due to a cracked rib has slowed proceedings). Thanks to everyone for their advice on taps, thread pitch and the like. It is much appreciated  :y

At some point, when we get a few straight hours of it not belting it down, I'll get the thing put back together and waved off via eBay.

The Berlingo Multispace arrives tomorrow and I can barely contain my excitement.  :P

In all seriousness Ste, we are most grateful to have it and once it's been fitted with some roof bars and a tow hitch, it will be exactly the tool for the job of getting the house renovation moving. It's only 90bhp but, being a modern diesel, it's pretty torquey, so pulling a trailer should be no issue.  :y

It just needs a couple of blasts up the motorway to clear it's tubes I reckon. 2-3000 miles per year (99% short hops) probably won't have done the dpf the world of good.

Ermmm.....helloooo....wasn't this exactly what I was saying when you said you wanted to keep it a few hours and then sell it?
