Re: and today i have mostly been...

...playing with my compost heap. It's not bad really, a few sticks, lots of worms, a couple of beetle grubs and a rat that scarpered before I stuck the fork through it. SO it goes. Anyone any good at Chinese puzzles? https://i.imgur.com/m3eBiRl.jpg :shock: This one of those cheap 'n' cheerful cordle...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I'm ok with the mig, never even tried anything else mind. I'm still pretty crap with wood, I never seem to learn from my mistakes. Recently ...

Re: old topic, 406 replacement ?

If that's the same 180 d-cat as the RAV, I read on the owner's klub that Toyota were replacing loads of them under warranty due to excessive oil consumption. Something to do with cylinder lining? Not sure how successful they were as one guy on there had given up when his car needed it's 3rd engine, ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

We've had adult cats disappear for a few days before but Archie's not much more than a kitten, I really did think he'd been murdered.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Hi guys, just a quicky as I've been rather busy. Hope you're all ok. We've sold my house, that's the main reason I've been busy. I've left loads of stuff there, like my big compressor (possibly a bomb) and the metal cabinets (possibly a mistake but I was never overly impressed with them). It's a you...

Re: Peugeot 406 Coupe EV conversion

No, you were right - if it's the later engine then the diagram only shows 1 sensor, just it was my first thought when I read your post as we'd seen problems with the 2 sensors not agreeing in the past.

I've not but I thought he'd be here with Ellie 'cos there was a huge upturned pram convention up the road in Samobor, so the roads were crammed with the things.
