General Discussion Area / Aircraft/history buffs

Amid all the dross that is Christmas TV there is a programme on More4 tonight at 7.55 called The Plane That Saved Britain[ok the programme may be a repeat and the subject in relation to the title debatable/arguable]about the "Wooden Wonder" or if you prefer the DeHavilland Mosquito.

General Discussion Area / Record confirmed
« on: 11 November 2021, 20:16:29 »
A couple of years or so ago I along with my step daughter and her two young granddaughters went to Bruntingthorpe in my V70 to take part in a world record attempt for greatest number of Volvo cars in a parade.This attempt was disallowed and a second attempt was organised for last year at Elvington this was postponed due to the pandemic and took place this year instead.We again took part and now the world record has been confirmed at 800 cars all in single file all moving at once not more than 2 metres apart over a two mile course.Apart from the achievement of the record the events combined raised 37,000 for the British heart Foundation :y :y

...Trump has launched his own social media site[which apparently was hacked the first day it went "live"] and from what I can gather he's also planning to start his own news channel.Should be "interesting" ::) ::)

At a virtual press conference about the recent pact signed between the UK,USA after the speeches president Biden said "Thank you Boris and that guy down under" it would seem he couldn't remember the name of the Australian Prime Minister :D :D

General Discussion Area / Appointment
« on: 16 September 2021, 21:47:13 »
Finally after nearly 3 months got an appointment on 1st October for an "urgent" angiogram.Dependant on what that shows I may have to have an angioplasty[stents put in]which apparently they may do there and then or they may pack me off home and make yet another appointment to go back and have that done.Apparently the angiogram takes 30 to 40 minutes and I'll be in hospital for 4 to 5 hours!

General Discussion Area / Any way round this?
« on: 26 August 2021, 09:58:43 »
Had a notification to say my g.mail account settings are out of date.Click on "fix now" and a box appears with g.mail address click next or continue[I forget which]and it then requests my password,enter that and another box appears saying windows/microsoft want access to my account in order to be able to edit/delete/send e-mails,delete contacts etc and a few other things.Scroll down and it has boxes to either accept or cancel that click on cancel and it shuts the whole process down and goes back to my screen saver.Why should I allow them access to my account to-at least it seems-do as they please with it? Is there any way to update my account without allowing this?

General Car Chat / Can it be driven?
« on: 11 August 2021, 17:54:28 »
I've never owned a diesel so not paid any real attention to them,but a mate is thinking of buying one[it's cheap] only trouble is it's a goodly distance away and has a blown intercooler so the question is can it be driven any kind of distance in this state without damaging other things[like the turbo]or wrecking itself?

Valentino Rossi-arguably the greatest MotoGP rider of all time- has announced that at the age of 42 and after 21years of competing in the series he will retire at the end of this season.Been a big fan of his since he started in the 125cc class back in 1996,although realistically I think he should have retired a few seasons ago-but he was enjoying it so why not carry on? It would be nice,although not probable to see him get at least one more podium position before the season end to make his 200th career podium.He will of course continue to be in the paddock as boss of his teams.

General Car Chat / ABS module
« on: 27 July 2021, 10:03:27 »
Starting this instead of cluttering the "what have you done.."thread any more.
Story so far. N/s/r caliper seized[new one bought] removing old caliper resulted in caliper to flexi hose brake pipe snapping and also end of that pipe not coming out of end of flexi hose,so new parts bought and fitted.Bleeding the brakes in the normal way resulted-after several hours of trying :o-in a trickle of fluid from the bleed nipple and a brake pedal only just off the floor.Next visit to the car and the brake pedal went to the floor and no fluid would come out of the bleed nipple or the brake pipe at the caliper ??? Pressure bleeder purchased which resulted in reservoir filling up and pressure forcing fluid back out of reservoir but none at caliper end >:(Master cylinder seems to be working correctly so either air is trapped in abs unit or the unit is fubar.I've yet to try reverse bleeding.If air is trapped in abs how do I get it out[assuming reverse bleeding doesn't do it]? If I need a replacement abs unit do all the numbers etc have to match and how do I make sure no air gets trapped in that when swapping them over? I have seen 3 used ones on e-bay,one from a 3.2 one from a 2.0 and one from a 2.2 diesel,while they look the same as mine[at least the 3.2 one and the diesel one do]the numbers and two big letters on the top are different.

General Car Chat / Been looking..

..at Jaguar XJ's as I quite fancy having another[the one I had was a '95 X300]so I'm thinking 2003 on X350.Seen an '06 plate 2.7 TDVI Sovereign on the bay at a traders 150 odd thousand miles on it and was pretty interested in that until I found out that they've had it a couple of years and the last MoT ran out in June 2019 and all the while they've been advertising it for just over 3,000 :D

...of Australian rules football? Saw some of this while waiting for coverage of MotoGP free practice this morning.What a crazy game it seems to be.I haven't a clue what the rules are or even if there are any and they just make them up as they go along.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Failing switch?
« on: 25 June 2021, 16:54:08 »
Sometimes[only infrequently at present]when the engine has been running and then turned off when you go to restart it turning the key produces nothing,no engine turning ,no click from starter or anything.Remove the ignition key and re-insert it with a bit of an extra push as though you're trying to push the key further in and it starts straight away.Is this a sign the ignition switch is beginning to fail?If that is the case could that have any impact on the speedo/rev counter as these sometimes don't work but when not working and turning engine off the rev counter needle will flutter for several seconds and then sometimes stop showing something like 250 revs or it will sit properly at the bottom of the dial.Or is that a separate issue and to do with the instrument cluster itself?

Alex Rins-Suzuki MotoGP rider-was cycling round the track[many riders cycle or run round the track ahead of free practice] on Thursday and not noticing one of the track marshals cars parked there[apparently while cycling he was on his mobile phone]promptly crashed into it and broke his arm putting him not only out of this weekends race but possibly at least the next round too.That's got to have gone down well with the factory/team/sponsors :-X
