It does sound a bit odd.  :-\

From memory, as its been a while - removing the big shiny coolant pipe isnt difficult. Unbolt support bracket, then possibly with the help of a mirror, undo the two bolts at the rear. Job done.
Then, as nick says, theres less stuff to get in the way, so that fanimold should be easier than the other one.

Thanks Keith. Didnt know that.  :y

I really need to investigate why the plastic French contraption wont start when its hot. Its a pita.  ::)
Its also starting to sound like a skeleton abusing itself in a biscuit tin, to borrow a phrase from Kevin Wood.  :D :D

Tried and failed to change the steering idler on the Omega. Never had a problem breaking the taper before, but couldnt do it today.
Got all hot bothered,and sweaty, so put it back together.
The one on there isnt bad. Just fancied having the new one fitted to cross it off the to do list.
Will have another go when the Im in the mood.  ::)

Me neither. I wouldnt fancy doing that job with two good arms.
Respect, young bear.  ;)


Requested by whom?

I don't tell anybody they can't wear a mask, and don't expect them to tell me I must.

What I do is none of their business.

it is there business if it's their BUSINESS you get refused entry too for not complying with their request to wear a mask  ::)

only 17 people died with SARS when that broke out because people listened, wore masks, didn't travel, social distanced and importantly SARS wasn't covered up for months

if you choose NOT to wear a mask most of the time then you should be considerate to people in shops who don't want your germs and are wearing a mask so they reduce the germs they spread

if you aren't bothered about catching Chinese virus because you think because you had 2 jabs that you are immortal then fair enough , some people can't be vaccinated for many reasons

wearing a mask in shops etc now is common courtesy to others

Completely agree. Its not just about choosing your own level of risk. You could be carrying Covid unknowingly and breathing it onto highly vulnerable people, who could be dead in a month due to having caught it from your breath.
Swmbo is highly vulnerable, so I wear a mask when around people, so I dont bring it home.
She just doesnt go near people anymore.

esso synergy is ethanol free and 99 ron too so no issues using it now in all mine.
Are there still Esso stations about?  Can't say I've seen one in ages.
Yes they're still around. The footprint of a fuel station is usually worth a lot more to the franchisee as a building site then it is as a business, so we lose more and more every year.
Round here, its farmers fields that get snapped up for building houses.

Where the opps are all these people coming from? Obviously, my manifesto for Dictator has a cheap, easy solution.

French France, in large dinghys mainly. Thats apart from the 5 million plus EU citizens who came here from the time Blair opened the floodgates until about a year ago.
If you believe in freedom of movement, you cant really complain about houses being buiult all over Englands green & pleasant land.  :)

To answer the original question. They are all mad. Simple as that.  :)

 I was about to put some super E5 in the Boxster at my local garage yesterday. Then noticed it was priced at 156.9p per litre.
It will have to make do with the cheap stuff for the moment.  ::)

Always 10/40 in mine too, for the above reasons.  :y

My old Volvo had a Renault engine, and was built in Holland  ;D

No upside whatsoever with that combination.  ;D

Having said that. My Porsche was built in Finland, and they are obviously as good at electrics as the French. Almost everything that goes wrong with them is electrical issues.  ::)

I went to Eurocraprats to collect some parts a while back, and they had sent the wrong ones.
When I complained to the girl at the counter her reply was "Covid".
Mine was "What happened with all my previous orders over the last ten years then ?"  ::)

You could try a stick between drivers seat and brake pedal to hold the pedal down overnight. Reservoir cap off.
