  1. Interesting, I thought the failing pumps were generally shown up when starting after a long rest. I went through a few that kept letting the fuel flow back into the tank. A good strong blow into the filler would generally force enough fuel to prime the pump.
  2. Fingers crossed for you. There's some old school way of clearing the jets, if the engine runs then you pull the air intake tube off and cover it with your palm. The vacuum clears the jets apparently. I've never tried...
  3. Sorry, missed your reply. It could have a 123 ignition on it , so you wouldn't necessarily know if it was electronic ignition. There is a sometimes a telltale bit of wiring heading down to the points box area. Annoying that it has failed again though. How old at the ignition cables? A Dyane of mine years ago used to eat cables - good test at night is to spray water over the HT leads, should see any sparking then. Or could it be as simple as a blocked jet?
  4. Is it still on points? If so, could be condenser failing. But given it worked after a while seems unlikely. Perhaps the loose pipe was drawing in air?
  5. Just found Easy Rider on the Sony movies channel. Currently annoying my wife by singing along to every song 😁
  6. Reject it under soga "not fit for purpose" Sent from my SGP621 using Tapatalk
  7. Awesome, thanks. Just what I needed.
  8. have you got a link? I can only find sealey.
  9. IIRC it is marshalled by car clubs down the route. I used to live in Coulsdon, and went to help a few times. There was a slight incline and cars often needed a bit of help. Further down, at Hooley, is where the A23 turns off onto the M23 - you have to make a conscious decision to go onto the M23 (well signposted with blue signs) rather than stay on the A23. Sad times - must be scary enough driving one, let alone ending up on the motorway https://goo.gl/maps/x6qeAKjKUJTqmSo29
  10. I did my work experience at college at ferry works in Thames Ditton. There was nothing of ac there then, so I doubt you'll find anything now Sent from my SGP621 using Tapatalk
  11. I'm tempted to set myself a goal of getting my acadiane to this.
  12. Jeez - that makes me feel old. I remember when those buses were introduced. Replaced the seriously ageing fleet.
  13. Re: Island line. I'm amazed anything runs now it's under the south Western Railway franchise. Probably their newest rolling stock though, so one train running is a good sign. Sent from my SGP621 using Tapatalk
  14. There isn't a cat, it's a thought experiment. Perhaps thinking about the cats name is another thought experiment.
  15. Just dropping in to say that Jeep looks perfect. Well bought. Sent from my SGP621 using Tapatalk
  16. I did some work at Virgin Media a few years back - we were working on an automatic fault detection algorithm but had access to the current fault system. The favourite complaint was someone had complained about network outage. The technician discovered the cabinet had moved to 25 feet down the road.... and now had a rather large dent in it. 'Fault found at cabinet, cabinet no longer in original position'
  17. Doctormop, condolences. I can only imagine what an awful time that you and your family are going through. I had never been through that, but did sit through a mental health awareness talk earlier this week at work. I'm not a therapist or medical professional and would suggest you contact someone for help, even the samaritans will be good. You say that you cant relate or help, but what your dad and others are probably looking for is someone to listen. Don't try to fix their issues. There were a few slides from the training that might help, some of them are cheesy, but I've tried this on my children to get them to tall more and it does work. Don't use the W words: who, what, why, when, where, how. These out people on the spot. Do use Ted: Tell me... Explain to me... Describe... And just listen, don't try to fix. ( this advice I gained from a great friend of mine who had a nervous breakdown because she was always taking on other people's problems, and trying to fix everything).

  18. Yep, I get network connection error when trying to use tapatalk.
  19. I have the special tool somewhere. There is a short set of steps to do it, but they go out of setting with monotonous regularity with use.
  20. Did the brakes fail? It looks like it rammed through the wall.
  21. Ah cool thank you. Didn't know if there was a different approach with the insert rubber. I'll keep persevering then
  22. My acadiane has no glass currently fitted.... Because I removed It. The window rubbers are the type with an insert that is pushed into a channel on the outside. What's the best way / correct way to refit the windows? should the rubber be fitted to the panel, and then the glass inserted or should I do the normal way of strong cord around the rubber channel and work my way around? I managed to get one side window in, but the other side is tougher and the rear door windows harder still!
