  6. Youngest son is a salesman for Toyota dealer so it changes weekly. elder son has 2006 Honda Accord 2.2 cdti tourer daddy wagon. He borrowed a Merc estate from me for a couple of weeks in the summer to do the continental touring thing though.
  7. We have an electronic torque/degree wrench in our workshop, it is probably good in production lines type stuff but generally folk find it too much of a faff about and just use old style micrometer wrenches and a degree reader if needed. Mebby if used more it would be easier to set.

  11. In 30 years working on mobile plant the only 2 broken cranks I've seen had mastic type gloop on the strainer in one and in the the other in a gallery. Neither had been done where i work I'd like to add!
  12. This what the oil filter on son's Astra looked like. I wasn't convinced I'd got all the bits out. Ignore the Crossland box, I don't know what make it was but it's a good advert for buying the best filters you can.
  13. Over the years and cars I've had 2 problems that I know of, a 1993 BMW 540i that after service whenever it was started the oil light went out, came back on then went out again to stay. When I pulled the filter back out the pressure had crushed it, lifting it off the drain valve in the bottom of the bowl meaning oil was continuously draining from the pressure side back to sump. I drove it to France from the NE like that.... Don't remember the make. Son's 2006 Astra 1.4 had the oil filter in pieces when I removed it, no idea what make or how long etc. Both were element type rather than screw on.
  14. Rover PB5 (?) seems to have shrunk Merc E Class W123 (?) are no longer big enough for Marrakech taxi's anymore.
  15. It won't take half an hour, the compressor times out after a few minutes.
