Re: HOW MANY MILES HAS YOUR PUG COVERED?

I'm sure you'd be justified clocking it over to all zeros. Not that I'd know how to do that :oops: Buggery bollocks, it'd have to happen in the only country it matters :( Btw I love the way your government robs.. er. charges everyone equally regardless of how fuel efficient their car actually is. Yo...

Re: Vibration turning left at low speeds

Why only turning left though? Maybe the pick up is on the right of the reservoir :? Glad you got it sorted anyway, doubly so as if left too long you'd probably have scrapped the pump :shock:

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Now, there's something else I didn't realise, I saw some of the speciality rods need care, but I'd not considered it for the boggo ones. Meanwhile I've been a-planting shallots. Not really sure why as I've been told to lay off the onions, but I've had these going from a bag I bought in the veg secti...

Re: HOW MANY MILES HAS YOUR PUG COVERED?

OMFG! :shock: :shock: It'll be km as there's only 1 scale on the speedo, also the money light bulb's blown... So, stuck at 999,999km, nobody will know if it's done more than that. It's irrelevant as 406's are meant to have burst into flames/exploded/fallen to bits long before that anyway. You should...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Lord knows, so it doesn't matter when it moves about? I've used mig for years (probably quite poorly) but arc is a closed book to me. Looks like 6013 2.5mm rods at up to 140 amp will do the job. Probably - there's very little out there that says "you will need such-and-such", most advice seems to be...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I've just been investermagating, it took some finding but that welder will only run the full whack on 3-phase, on 230 volts it'll only do 115 amps, which is hardly any better than what I have already. This house does have a 3-phase feed but no wiring for it. They also do Telwin migs (Italian, sold t...

Re: SEDRE

I forgot about the repair manual :oops: Not that I ever found much that was useful on it. Umm, it's up to you really, you could pay for online access but you'll probably spend your first 24 hours figuring out how to use it. If you can use the wiring diagrams then go for the Sedre download and treat ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Another day of slogging away to little obvious progress. I'll also make an angle iron flange for the bottom of the upright and pin it into the floor https://i.imgur.com/lEcx9l5.jpg Needs the pins cutting flush and welding up. Should spread the load a bit too. probably something similar at the top sc...

Re: SEDRE

Well no, but the Sercvice Box backup will go out of date (if it didn't already, mine's 2011 so pretty old) so you won't keep up with any parts changes if stuff gets superseded etc. You won't be able to check current prices. Plus it won't decode your VIN as you won't actually be registered for the da...

Re: SEDRE

Service Box - spare parts, service schedules, stuff like that. Sedre - wiring diagrams, pinouts, installation diagrams, iffy fuse diagrams etc. (no part numbers). I first downloaded it off of pages of links on a now defunct diagnostics forum, very slowly, it took days. These days it's on most torren...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Small amounts of progress today. I had to wait until almost 10 for the temperature to go over zero, then at 11:30 I had to abandone ship to cook lunch and take Max shopping (his turn to cook Saturday). Home at 3, bit of work on the mig, then back out shopping again 'cos I forgot the fish for tomorro...

Re: More Gremlins

PSA wiring is colour-blind, it's the numbers that count (so you're f*cked if they're missing :roll: ), they should match (but not always :evil: ).

Re: Type of Power Steering Fluid

Ah well, the memory fades, but I knew it had Dexron something on the lid, not this Total Fluide AK47 or whatever it was the book said. Like a lot of t'wife's English text books, it's talking ballcocks.
