Drove it to Colchester to visit with Johnnycboy :y :y

I may have gotten involved in a rear wheel bearing change whilst I was there too ::) ::) ;D ;D

Yes and what a horrible job it is too.  Handbrake shoe pins were the worst part - bloody horrible design >:(


Thankfully had a couple of close friends to help out though. :y

I went to calibrate the lpg so I tried to load the driver for the usb interface - no joy.  Download the drivers from the manufacturers website - no joy.  Try all sorts of drivers I find on the net - no joy.  Stumble across one on the Motogas website - it works.

Started calibration - one cyl ok, 3 = stall.

Suspect air leak - remove plenum and shift wiring around.

Restarted calibration again - one cyl ok, 3 = stall.

Suspect air leak in different place - remove breather ECOTEC Box and replace washers which were shot.

Restart calibration again - one cyl ok, 3 = stall.

break it - left it and tried to get on OOF - no joy.  break it - searched the internet for clues including the cached pages of OOF - no joy.

I niggling thought entered my mind so went to fill the lpg tank some more.  1st station the sat decides to take me to it via manchester.  I stop, reprogramme idiot-nav and get to fleet Total garage.  LPG nossle buggered - break it.  Went to M3 services (the back route)  almost get caught by a copper.

Filled up with LPG, it's a single hole tank so it took forever.  Drove home and restarted calibration - worked first time!

Arse!  Who's a rather eejit?!  ;D ;D

On the plus side, it rather works!  :D :D :D

Yeah, I nearly had a heart attack when I saw them, the mot had them as an advisory 7 months ago being "a bit rusty" seeing how bad they were i'd say they had to be a lot more than a bit lol... Still they're done now.  :y

All I've done to mine is driven it home far too quickly. Blimey can it shift when asked :). Its so nice to be able to push it hard again, without worrying about thrust washer :D

I might have taken a little tread off TheDaddy's MV6 tyres ::). Don't tell him ::)
