Re: Turbo on 2.0 HDI 406

Err, was this some bloke down the pub? All the HDi's are electronic, there's nothing you can get to to fiddle with. I suspect they were thinking about a TD...

Re: Clutch switch

Apart from the cruise thing, the ecu uses it to tell it what to do with the idle, if it doesn't see the switch operate it'll hold the revs higher (until the car's stationary). I can't see it having much to do with gear changes, unless you're really slow... :?

Re: and today i have mostly been...

You mean I didn't say? Oh, ok. In 2004 I decided I needed someone to teach me Croatian, lots of my friends said they'd teach me but I thought if I actually hired a professional I'd do my homework, treat them with respect and hopefully get somewhere. I enquired at the local college but they didn't ha...

Re: Peugeot 406 Coupe EV conversion

That's serious? To me that's a modern idea, most of the cars I have ever owned didn't have that and I can't see why it would be much of a safety issue, more like a "you're an idiot" reminder :roll: The switches are in the door lock, I think there are two per lock (one to say if it's open, one to say...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Just cheese and tomato? How boring. How about cheese, tomato, garlic, sliced gherkin and mayonnaise? :twisted: Originally there was me, t'wife, sis-in-law Tanja and bro-in-law Ivo (Tanja being the main driving force behind it all), but we lost Tanja in 2013 (already almost 7 years? :shock: ), Ivo se...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Who, me? :shock: Thanks, but I aint no gardener :oops: Before I came here my experience was laying a tiny lawn with turf, maybe a few flowers, I remember having to mow the lawn when I was a kid (2/5ths of an acre), raking leafs and helping out with the veggy garden by, erm, breaking lumps of soil up...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Horse chestnut looks a bit unhappy (they range from unhappy to dead here). Lawn's looking good, good idea to fill in those bald bits before the weeds take over. Sink with hot water in the garage! I iz jealous. I had a sink in the garage of the house I just sold, only cold water mind, and also very i...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I've just been up t'garden for some veg: https://i.imgur.com/JMrXGLw.jpg Nothing's growing that well this year, probably due to a hot dry spring and then a cool wet summer. I have tried growing a few new things this year, I have kale and sprouts looking like they'll need some encouragement to be rea...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

The sun has got his hat on etc. It's drizzled on and off all day here, in fact it seems to start raining every time I step outdoors to do anything :frown: I had my little strimmer's (ancient Tanaka) carb in bits 'cos it's a pig to start. I started off by cleaning it - I don't know what this degrease...

And it's in bits again :roll: I didn't get to ride it, t'wife came back in the early hours of yesterday morning but with storms forecast I was too busy gardening all day (visions of 100+ tomato plants destroyed had me pinching and tying like a loon) so this morning as it was pi$$ing down I tidied th...

Re: Sump 'crush' washers - a lesson learned

Phew, yes that is a relief. I was worried it would go down the "still won't seal, drain sump, apply instant gasket, still drips, how the hell do you get these sumps off, use a flamethrower?" route. A lovely chap called Mika does all my oilchanges now :oops: It's a change from my old days back in Bli...
