General Discussion Area / More TCV madness
« on: 16 July 2021, 11:47:31 »
Work have decided, from Monday, that we have to be tested before we can start work.

Inspite of being fully vaccinated and are insisting that if you don't take a test/prove a negative result, then you get marked down for unauthorised absence, and if you test positive then you get marked down as sick and put onto SSP. Even if you have no symptoms and would otherwise have gone to work. All the while whilst furloughing/unfurloughing us every couple of days.

And inspite of not being able to work from home, you only qualify for the self isolating award if you have kids or are on benefits.

Test Zone / IMPORTANT 2.6/3.2 CRANK SENSOR UPDATE.
« on: 30 June 2021, 22:51:45 »
A two minute call to the parts desk at Bob Steele Chevrolet in Melbourne, Fl, a company from whom I have previously purchased so parts via eBay, produced three useful pieces of information.

1. 90540743 is NLS.

2. It has been superceded by 90494182.

3. It costs $62.10 and is available for shipping next working day.

Item 1 isn't news.

Item 2 is, and reinforces my point that most UK VX dealers lack imagination or incentive to actually do anything useful.

Item 3 gives an indication of price, $US as of 30/6/21.

Might be of benefit to someone who appreciates it.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Aircon wiring Q
« on: 28 June 2021, 15:08:42 »
Got a head scratcher...

The BkWh wire that runs from the Climate panel to the pressure switch and onto a fan relay then into the engine ecu.

What polarity is it at the engine Ecu and if positive, what voltage?

General Discussion Area / Terry Paget
« on: 03 May 2021, 11:57:47 »
I received the following sad new last night:

Hello Dr. Gollum. I,m sorry to tell you that Terry has died after being ill for a couple of months.
The Forum was so important to him. So thanks for being there. There are various Omega parts, but I couldn't tell you what. My email address is xxxx*, if anyone is interested in having a look.
Terry's wife, Tricia Paget

If anyone was determined to try and fix something, it was Terry. An affable chap who would always try to help where he could and a pleasure to have met him at the meets he attended.

I have removed Tricia's e-mail address from this quote to deter bots, but I have forwarded the message to the Admin team should anyone be wish to contact her.

General Discussion Area / Good old Egay sellers/Amazon
« on: 12 March 2021, 02:47:24 »
Apparently Amazon aren't making enough money so they have started competing with actual delivery companies and are shipping ebay orders ::)

Ordered a couple of tools from a business seller on ebay and was surprised to see Amazon as the shipper. Suffice to say they failed to deliver the item two days running, yesterday at 1506 and today at 2247 ;D (I was in both times, so that's clearly BS), and decided that the items are now undeliverable. WTF ??? Even Hermes and Don't Handle Logistics can deliver within two attempts.

Not sure if the issue is with the seller using Amazon to fulfil the order to save a couple of quid, or if Amazon are as incompetent as Yodel :-\ it's 50/50... (And/or the driver can't read addresses) but suffice to say that if you leave the depot at 1215 with a couple of hundred drops, you probably aren't going to finish before the 2200 cut off :-X
