  1. I remember that someone on here used those low temperature alloy brazing rods to fix theirs. Seemed a good solution. After lockdown storage, I found myself chasing this problem, even though car has 'in date' ethylene glycol inhibitor/coolant. Think I replaced 3 in total. The good news is that they are readily available and not especially expensive.
  2. The other thing you can do, under the car, with the cable end disconnected, is familiarise yourself with the range of movement of the crossgate shaft and what gear plane each movement represents, You then know what you are aiming for with the cable connected - Yes its very easy to adjust so you are trying to set off in 3rd or reverse is unavailable.
  3. Same here - but I know exactly what they will look like!
  4. Just throwing it out there - Could you use an oil cooler, or 2 oil coolers in series, I wonder?
  5. The smaller ones are also metric, 22mm from memory.
  6. Mine is broadly similar. i.e. starts as full, reads full for a period of time, then drops fairly progressively until 50%. Stays on 50% for ages. Then drops like a stone after a certain point. (but that's fine, as its most sensitive as its nearing empty). NB Doubt I could get 360 out of mine, but I never brim it and have never run it empty, so not sure what actual max range is.
  7. Obviously had plenty of money spent on the 'cosmetics' but not keen on the dubious chassis paint job in engine bay, covering a fair bit of rust on the chassis member adjacent to manifold. Also looks a bit leaky down that side of the motor. Been inexpertly jacked quite a bit under front cross member. Question for the experts out there. Apart from the decals and cam covers, are there any other parts unique to an 'Essex'? Think I'll have a go on WBAC now!
  8. That was pure MV banger racing. As usual, no space given in a 50/50 (lap1), yet always demands it from his opponents. Horner was particularly contrite and not his usual feisty self when defending this as a 'racing incident'. As above, on a different day, or a different era, the outcome could easily have been fatal.
  9. Even the media are losing interest, which is nice
  10. I'll be surprised if he makes the full term.
  11. What would be more helpful if manufacturers would state what needs to be changed to make a specific vehicle compliant
  12. Its only around 80 human lifespans, stacked end to end, that Britain became an island! Until then you could have walked to the continent via Doggerland. Climate change is a function/feature of the earth. Whether or not we can meaningfully alter it, I have my doubts. However, as a matter of common sense, I don't think it is a good idea to use up all the earth's natural resources as fast as we can use them. Recycling and renewable energy sources has to be a good thing. As has been mentioned in other threads, I reckon the ever expanding human population is the elephant in the room.
  13. Its a little unfair to expect a plane full of civilian interpreters, cooks etc to stay and fight after the 'highly trained' army and president just exited stage left.... Seems the Taliban have learned to be much more media savvy in the last 20 years, which I fear may just be a ruse to get all foreigners out of Afganistan without wasting any ammo. Be 'interesting' to see what transpires with Al qaeda and ISIS over the next few years.

    I bet you put the milk in the cup before the teabag... In addition to a LaPavoni lever machine, I've used a Delonghi Bean to Cup for around 5 years and its been convenient and reliable. Places like Currys heavily discount 'last years model' every so often, so I bought mine much cheaper than the Sage/Breville machine that I was also considering
