    Wobbler has to cater to his audience, and I imagine the number of Hubnut subscribers who would want that level of detail about the history of Invacars would be a very small minority.   In fact I could probably count them on the fingers of one hand, even if four of my fingers had been chopped off.

    I have now become the owner of a Beige Audi with a green interior.

    Has been a long day and is tired so you only get this one bad picture. And this is the car I posted in the ebay thread a few days ago. Do you want me to start a thread on this and the other things I do as tractors and other things?

    Tyres which have been stomping along the queen's highway/sat idle for long periods of time for more than a decade are never worth the risk, surely? For the sake of a couple of hundred quid it's decent peace of mind when your family are on board.

    I might be talking a load of bollocks here, but wouldn't the thermostat mostly regulate this? When the engine is warming up, the thermostat will only open when hitting it's opening temperature. Cool water will flow back in from the radiator, cooling the thermostat and closing it. So does an uprated radiator just allow the engine is able to regulate it's temperature better and prevent any chance of overheating, rather than overcooling it?
    A fan obviously allows airflow around an engine and help dissipate heat from the block easier. I.e. the engine itself is a radiator. If anything a fan is useful to have sucking air through to prevent hotspots in an engine bay (e.g. around the manifolds) and help stop things such as fuel vaporisation when stuck in traffic.

    I say he has fucked over society. He’d be better off sinking his independent wealth into a country pile - paying local businesses to dig a pool, local youth to maintain it, retirees to tend the lawns and just have the formal garden and orangery to pass the time for himself. Meanwhile, a bunch of start-outs are being denied the opportunity to struggle and strive their way onto the property ladder via these nice little terraces that can become a proud first step. I’m organising a march to protest against the champagne socialists and holding Rolls Royce responsible for enabling the actions of these parasites by selling their shares in an irresponsible fashion. The March will start by my shed, travel past the veg patches and end up by my back door so I can walk to the fridge to avail myself of a cold drink. Who is with me? No-one? Good. Shan’t have to share my cold drink then.

    Ugh. It got even more warm. Sun was baking my legs putting the valves back in, taking it out was good because that side of the car was in the shade.

    Put some oil thickener in and went did a test drive. A little better in the heat- though before coming to a halt, a brief full throttle application in 4th appears to clear it up and causes it to cycle down through the gears correctly, and then pull away after having been stopped correctly also.
    Stopped for an old fashioned cherry coke, which was much appreciated in this heat.

    Britain has usually been quite subtle about its corruption over past decades, but better information/leaks these days means it's much more visible.
    Doesn't really matter what system you have, because corruption will always be there, and people will invariably adapt and learn how to game the system.
