It's service time for the Volvo.

 

The ARB links have now been replaced with actual ones.

An oil/filter change is due (on the time interval!) and the ATF/filter need replacing and the gearbox sump cleaning, I'm not sure it's ever been done and the gears are starting to shunt. There's a bit of hesitation off the line when you put it in D accompanied by a big clunk and the car jumping forward from stationary.

However the spark plugs are clean, I replaced the HT leads a few months ago after Old Man broke one, and the air filter looks brand new and is a Mann Filter one. That's £30 that doesn't need spending.

 

Of course, this has been countered by looking at the car to find that a large stone has punched a hole through the right front indicator lens, and the tiny paint bubble on the driver's front wheelarch is now a load of paint crazing. 

 

Fuck road salt.

Today I am mostly pissed off with Jaguar, and the XF in particular. Pain in the arse.... Why would you change the position of the terminals in the same tail light plugs, halfway through a model year. Caused me a good hour of head scratching, half an hour of panic, then another hour to rip it all out and start again, Wrecking a £200 wiring loom at the same time. I'm having a good drink tonight, and the bill's going to Ratan Tata. That'll teach him.

The clocks in the Transit have now completely died - they've been temperamental since I bought it, but the fuel gauge always worked - now that's dead too, and the milometer and clock displays are blank.  So if I get time this weekend after fixing the C4 for its retest on Tuesday and all the other shite I need to get done, I'm going to have to haul the instrument cluster out and see if it's saveable.  There are zillions of secondhand clusters for Mk6 Transits on eBay, but not for the dual fuel version.

 

I reckon it needs a new thermostat as well, as it's running at about 65-70oC which is too cold really, and I think that may be part of the reason the LPG keeps cutting out.  I've not investigated how twattish a job it's going to be to replace, but my guess would be "very".

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

We've a customer brings us the clusters out of their works transits, we didn't really want to touch them but the gaffers agreed to "have a look" at them as a favour job because they do send us a lot of other work. Anyway I said I'd spend 20 minutes between jobs having a quick nosy, I never even powered them up but the customer says they, work and once we did one, they brought about another 25 over the next few months

 

All I do is resolder the joints on the socket, and then using an abrasive rubber block (you'd probably be able to use one of them double ended erasers or something) buff off off the weird corrosion that grows from all the PCB through-holes, then give the whole board a blast with some Iso alcohol, brake cleaner would work too. Just make sure you know where the needles go before you take them off (gently wind them down to the zero stops and take a photo before you pull them off). I've probably got a photo on my phone if you forget, though

That sounds like what happens with copper PCB tracks as they age, plus the acid in the multicore flux during soldering. I know soldering for electrics is supposed to use resin flux, but that stuff can still be corrosive over time.

New tyres time.

Tyres on the drive .com


Tread depth mostly ok, but both were cracking. 4 and 7 years old. Most worn right side tyre on both shoulders is because of the ball joint failing. The car isn’t moving until it’s done.
The tracking was done last year.

Ps if anyone needs tyres I’d happily recommend the company.

I've been working in Accers, home of Stanley, for a couple of weeks and staying at The Moog villa.

A very pleasant and homely experience. 5 pointy things.

Will let me borrow the 406 from the collection until the screen for mine arrived ,

allowing me to continue working. Much appreciated.

Hi Bub, I was too busy studying all them posh bits in the car to say a proper hello.

Most on here, I would imagine ,know about A/c , lekky windows, pas etc but to someone who 

has a base 305 that doesn't even have carpets that's all posh stuff.

A couple of crap camera shots of it loaded up and earning its keep.

Note the Paddy Hopkirk heavy duty hoop ladder bars. Brilliant bars but don't half make a noise at more than 40.

 

A couple of pics of adjustments* I've done to improve* things.

First is a scrunchy, Moog parts dept, ensuring the gear linkage stays where it should.

 

DSCF0007.JPG

 

Barely visible now with it getting dirty.

Next, a piece of plastic flooring and a bit of carpet tile making up an engine mount.

 

DSCF0005.JPG

 

Finally a home made air intake pipe with gaffer tape. Now it has tape at the other end as well.

Vanshite time.

No sooner had I got the C15 back then me m9 JJ needed a spare vehicle because he'd broken his £200 factory LPG'd Focus.

He lent the van, with its destroyed clutch and generally smelly characteristics.
Got a phone call in the evening saying it had run out of fuel pulling into the services on the A1. Went to the unit and brought him some tools and a booster pack.

UVhwDTK.jpg

Bleeding in tweed. Once burped with the plunger and unclipping the pipe to the fuel pump, it fired straight up.

p3HJ8TG.jpg

Followed him for a bit and then swung round and headed back to Peebo. He's lending the Leon for a longer trip next week and I'm having the van for a few days.
CLASS.

The Volvo failed to proceed this morning due to it running out of electricity, owing to the battery warning light in the dashboard becoming loose in its socket. As the bulb is an integral part of the charging circuit, the battery was of course not being charged, leading the car to stop working in a lay-by on the A13 just outside Basildon. Here it is after being dragged home:

 

IMG_20180217_084935.jpg

 

I think it looks quite majestic from that angle ^^

 

After calling work and the AA, and while waiting for the recovery firm (Eastern General, the AA's nominated third party recovery company in my area), I took out the instrument panel and refitted the bulb, resulting in it working. I still had to get dragged home, as I had no means of jumping the battery, meaning I got a free day off work, but a subsequent jump start got the car running and it was clear that the alternator was charging fine.

 

I left it to idle for an hour with every possible electrical accessory going at full titty, and everything was fine and hopefully will be fine in the future. I have, however, ordered a jump starter pack for both The Volvo and The Aero, to guard against future shenanigans. I've also bought a couple of new alternator regulator packs (£12 each!), as my roadside investigations found the existing one's brushes to be a bit manky, although it still works.

 

The recovery driver was a really nice bloke, a time-served AA patrolman, an old car nut and a high-up in the Mark III Zephyr and Zodiac Owners Club, owning a Zodiac, a mark 2 Granada Ghia X saloon and a late 1980s Scorpio. He really liked The Volvo and took some photos of it to show his boss, who apparently has two of his own. I hope that our paths cross again one day :)

Noisily trundled over to the exhaust place today in the Princess. There's one guy there who knows his old stuff and was less baffled by the Princess than the others, having dealt with the very same exhaust problem we're having.  His advice was not to spend money getting them to try and seal it since they'd only do what we've been doing and the success rate would be about the same.  It was also a joking "haha, you're on your own mate." sort of a conversation which... FAIR.  Mike and I will have another crack at it on Monday, at least we got some useful tips on why it's blowing and what to avoid when refitting now, so it certainly wasn't a wasted journey and, of course, it's money saved if I'm not actually paying someone else to do it.

Got my insurance renewal through today. £627 compared to £328 last year. WFT is that about? Five cars on a classic multicar policy, and taking the now departed Xantia off should reduce it a bit but still, that's some increase.

Maybe I've been spoilt these past few years as it's not really a huge sum to pay for several vehicles. Will tweak the policy I think as I'd rather stay with Peter James as adding a new car mid term costs peanuts (something I find useful!). Swapping one for another only cost me their £15 admin charge last time for example. Plus it comes with UK and EU breakdown cover, FJ charge extra.
