Re: Rear Window Heater

I'm going to assume you have already checked the fuse?
Have you tried popping the switch out, unplugging it and simply putting a wire across the two sockets on the plug?
If this works it's a simple switch change.

Re: Grass seed question

Well, you seem to have sown the seeds of a long discussion.
I'm sure there'll be a lot mower advice to come.

Although, with the current situation you should consider planting potatoes, carrots, cabbage etc instead.

Re: Side indicator

Think there should be bullet connectors in the loom on the inner wing near where they come through?

Been 20+ years since I did them though :roll:

Re: Went for a walk today and found this

I knew a bloke who cut a large bough off a tree in a churchyard and used that on his boat.
Whenever anyone asked what it was, he replied "Yew Anchor" :xd:

Re: Oily Sparks

Somehow, in amongst all my ramblings, I forgot to point out that the only cure is a new set of followers! Before you do that, check the state of the cam lobes. Same principle as using old pads on new discs, don't do it. If the cam has wear it will very soon knacker your new followers, so in that ca...

I would have thought I would have seen it as well but I will bow to Truck and Tom's superior knowledge! The spring clip thing that holds the follower on was still there, but when I set the valve clearances it seemed quite loose so not sure if the spring/clip whatever is just a bit loose/old and nee...

Nah, you can leave `em in for me, I`m always curious.

So, as the topic seems to have wandered (even though I think my suggestion is valid) I have a question to ask:

Should I try flagellation, necrophilia and bestiality, or am i just flogging a dead horse :D

Am I right in thinking that the two on the other side of the car will rotate the opposite way and therefore should be called hurricanes??? :xd:

Re: What are you cooking in these days of wartime restrictions?

We're still working our way through the salmon before it goes out of date :xd:

Washing it down with the Prosecco we panic bought.

Did waste a bit though, when I spilt it getting into the hot tub.

I'm quite enjoying this isolation thing. Good food and no annoying company. :whistle:

Re: Going For A Drive

But when you're out for a drive and the car breaks down you will need to interact with the recovery service. God forbid, but if you had an accident, an overstretched NHS would have to deal with you. I acknowledge that we need to maintain our sanity but think very carefully before you potentially jeo...
