Interesting that, it could be that it shrank a tiny amount in size due to the cold. You could have hit upon something here, next time I do a similar job I might put the bush in the fridge first.

Re: Who Remembers?

It has already been on GMB that complaints have been raised over re-showing it. I saw this post on Twitter, which sums it up very nicely I think - Mark Lockwood @MarkLock101 26 Nov I can’t get past the argument that every TV has an off button, if you don’t want to watch something, switch it off/over...

Have To Sell?

I'm posting this with a heavy heart....😥 As much as I love My Capri and all things Ford and everything that comes with it, sadly, It's taking up too much of my time. I am struggling to keep up with the everyday basics of working, cleaning, parenting and maintaining my home. Something has to give. As...

Re: Who Remembers?

I never thought I'd see the day but That's TV, Channel 7 (regional) and Channel 91 (National) are re-showing the Benny Hill Show. Incredibly funny, far more so than I remember it to be. Some of the sketches (which he wrote) are very clever, never realised he was such a genius. https://c4f6q9z9.stack...

Re: Who Remembers?

Yes Paul, we had one in the lounge. The smell of burning dust if it hadn't been used for a while :) They threw out quite a bit of heat, but you had to wonder how fast the meter was spinning :shock: Ahh that smell, would love to have it just one more time. You're right Andy, they did give out some p...

Who can remember this type of fire/heater, which was very common back in the day, must have cost a fortune to run, but in these days of everything-must-be-electric perhaps they'll make a comeback! https://www.for-sale.co.uk/sh-img/124198375_10165958461900347_5039464432219752346_o_electric%2Bbar%2Bfi...

It's only gone through the roof if it actually sells at that though, the seller could put a million Pounds if he so wished, doesn't mean it will sell or that it's worth it.

Re: Fitting Superflex TCA Inner Bushes

Thanks for your reply Matt. Well, it won't be the fact that you have standard bushes causing any sloppiness or trouble, it's because they were probably decades old and knackered? Changing them to good new standard bushes would have seen a marked improvement. Harder bushes in a harder material will g...
