    I now want a Wolseley...
  2. Glad you've got it running again, keep up the good work!
  3. Lovely, not bad at all. If I had it spare I'd be asking a favour of you...
  4. Especially a Toyota..
  5. Those were my thoughts. How many caravans is old Ivor flogging to keep afloat?!
  6. Fantastic reading. How the hell did you get involved in all this?
  7. Interesting to see you on here, followed you up Wakefield Road this week.
  8. Tank is already turned off. Must admit I gingerly disconnected the other filter and unclenched when it didn't shoot gas in my face!
  9. Is that the thing with the brass bowl that contains the small filter? That's next I just need a small spanner to be able to undo it. Couldn't quite contort my hands into the gap.
  10. I've only done one of the filters so haven't filled it up with gas again yet. Hoping it works as I don't want to dive into the vaporiser, they seem quite fiddly.
  11. Lacked motivation through the poor weather so whilst it was good last weekend decided to whip the bumper off and fit the insert that Rob gave me with the car. Of course I didn't get round to putting it back on til today when it was pissing it down again! Before... And after. Also started servicing the LPG system as the car started hunting when coming up to temperature. Quite enjoyed this as the filter cartridge needed splitting down, new seals and a filter insert. A bit more involved than a petrol filter is. Certainly needed changing...
  12. I know of someone looking to find storage for a 20 footer. If nothing comes off it might be for sale. It's in West Yorkshire though!
  13. At least that place treads the fine line, the other one doesn't! 251 Manchester Rd https://maps.app.goo.gl/ifPMSfrDmpynoST89
  14. There's also a fella called Johnson who has about 10 parts cars parked under the viaduct at Longroyd Bridge. Think he also owns the garage as you go down into Brighouse from Elland.
  15. Can recommend Huddersfield Volvo Breakers in future if you're after parts. They're up by emley moor mast.
  16. Ah, sorry about that! The comment above about Scottish weather is what got me.
  17. Sorry if I've missed it somewhere in the thread, have you got a link for bookings? Looking at a trip to Scotland next year so would be good to know where you are
  18. If you did go down the bank account route it seems that Revolut allow a moneypool style feature.
  19. A day off work saw some work to the brakes before the weather turns for the worst. Asbestos free is a rather odd claim to fame in 2021. Plenty of meat left on the pads despite the wear indicators flashing on the dash and the increasingly frequent grinding noises from the front. That'll be because the discs are jiggered and the lip is making its way through the wear sensor. One of the wear sensors decided to snap when pushed back into the new pad, bugger! Surprisingly cheap and easy to get hold of though. And of course the reservoir was now overflowing. Decided to try and find a turkey baster to suck a bit of fluid out, none to be found in the three big supermarkets here. Had to resort to a Calpol syringe, 5ml at a time! Fluid looks more like oil, could do with some attention once I have built up the courage to touch the bleed nipples. Quick test drive and all is well, much quieter when coming to a stop. So, that'll be number 9 crossed off the original list. Back to the cruise control and central locking next I think.
  20. Possibly got the wrong thread in mind here but I can't take the pain alone, needed to share it.... https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/408226034291453/
  21. I've been slacking slightly with progress on the W124 as I thought I had better focus my effort on preparing for the looming MOT. First of all tried to bodge together the broken rear light cluster, that was a spectacular failure so a new part was required... After that I turned my attention to the handbrake that didn't work, so that saw new discs, pads and shoes go on the rear. Happy to see that the Merc uses mechanical adjusters rather than the V70 system that I found fairly useless the other month. Forgot to take many pictures so here's one of the new shoes, I'm not great at these threads as you might have gathered. And today was the big day, the big day of failure... But the nice man put some tape over the bumper And that got me a pass! 12 more months of fettling and fun. Slightly worried by the corrosion but I'll get underneath and have a proper look at some point.
  22. Had another look and taken some pictures. 4 cables 2 pins Bracket only ever designed for one plunger (not sure whether this is relevant) Could it be that each pin makes/break contact in a separate circuit? I can't see how this would work though...
