The world needs more 2stroke diesels.

I had a good chat with the owner of a two stroke, three cylinder Turner engined series one Land Rover at the weekend. 2.1 litre and supercharged.

Turner made v4 diesels for Yeoman tractors too. Very interesting stuff.

I should have taken a vid. Here's a youchoob one

I don't think the staff at our local branch would care. They are more likely to be Croatian.

Very quite outside tonight. Is something going on that I don't know* about?

In this peace and quiet I've made a lot of noise while fitting a decent lock on the garage.

Does that go on the outside or the inside? I’m thinking of getting something similar for my parent’s up n over garage door.

Outside. Need to mount it into concrete. So I had to dig the big hole around the tarmac and then filled with concrete first. I'll probably fill the top over with tarmac to tidy the job up and stop water pooling in there.

The concrete edge of the garage base is about a foot proud before the tarmac drive starts so that’s doable. Where did you buy from if you don’t mind?

Screwfix but you can get it cheaper from Amazon and other places online. You'll need a 10mm and 16mm drill bit. Possibly an SDS drill if the concrete is particularly hard.

These are the destructions.

I have read advice online to take the end caps and fill the tube bit with expanding foam. Bit of a weak point as someone can put a long bar in and leaver it off.

So, the Fusion will be leaving next week for a new life in St Ives on a very different part of coastline. At 3 years, 9 months it's the car I've owned 2nd longest ever, and also the only car that I bought for more than £1k (I won't be making that mistake again!). Overall it has always had niggles, and I have never enjoyed owning it. I will not miss it. 

 

22-23k miles in that time (117k total)

 

However, it doesn't really have any rust, cambelt was less than four years ago, Clutch this year. It should soldier on for a couple more years.

Took 5 batteries to scrapyard yesterday, but I was turned away since i didn't  have a driving licence ID with me .

So I said  I hadn't got a licence, as I can't drive... :-(

Yes you can,  I saw you drive in... :-)

 

A passport will do too ..

 

I've not got a passport ... :-( 

 Look . Can't I just swap my batteries for some of your brass billets for my lathe ?

 

No.. need your licence 

 

Went back today with licence ..

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2018071...

Looks decent but my problem with those sort of locks is they are very visible......on the one hand it's a deterrent, on the other it says "hey over here, something worth stealing"

There were a few spates of garage thefts I'd heard of where van load of scummy types reverse up to garage door, cordless grinder to cut around locks and peel back the thin metal.

In and out in no time.

My da threw some angle iron up at the sides of his garage door (on the inside), welded some plates to the back of the door itself to which he mounted substantial bar locks which slide into holes in the angle iron.

Should certainly keep his washing machine, wood offcuts, out of date paint in and collection of old rusty bolts safe....

If you knew someone with a welder.....

That was something I was debating if it does shout that there maybe something to steal. However the neighbour has one fitted on their garage and he's never had any problems. Plus he has a motorbike in there, which seem to be the number one thing to be nicked. There is usually a car always on the drive though which blocks the view of that lock.

TT is in for an MOT tomorrow. Not been nervous for an MOT for a while. Hoping (optimistically) it will go through without too much trouble. Any extra expenditure will mean less funds for the 1100 and MGB GT.

I found a nice series of holes in and  behind the rear of the garage door and frame , drilling of a hole in the brick work and the insertion of a steel rod effectively jammed the door shut , with access to the garage being via the very enclosed back garden ...... 

 

and you say 

 

some one only has to get in the garden and ....

 

so a big bolt is on the front of the door in front of the CCTV camera , and the dogs sleeping nearby ................

a modification to the chassis means it cant be fully inspected. This flags up for welded repairs as arse-covering, meaning they have no way to inspect the quality of welding, and in this case I did the entire chassis in a coat of satin paint black too. They arent allowed to scrape the paint off to see whats underneath.
