  1. Does that mean we are running our cars too rich or they just leak? So (sneakily re-hijacking the thread) our plugs must be the McVities dark chocolate digestive colour rather than the classic digestive or even leaning towards rich Tea. That's ok for you with 'Imperial biscuits' but of course here we are 'Metric Biscuits' so I should be aiming for :
  2. Got one but I find the syringe more accurate for this sort of 'precision engineering' πŸ™„
  3. If everything else is ok just give it a clean up and replace the bushes. When I did mine I noticed the manufacturing date was a couple of months earlier than that of the car so I reckon it is the original one. It may have had several sets of brushes, bearings etc I've no idea.
  4. My dynamo has one, I think it is standard. Taking one apart is straight forward, once you have it off the car, it just unbolts. Replacing the brushes is also easy - I did it so anyone can
  5. Sort of correct, the 'E' routes i.e. those that go between countries have special privileges for freight. For the rest I'm not sure what time they start again - no doubt after my bedtime 😁
  6. Don't do that! Rule number 1: Don't tell 'em anything Rule number 2: Deny everything Rule number 3: If you get this far down the list you're stuffed!
  7. Well it didn't last long me being correct, back to normal then I suppose 🀬
  8. NO! I was 2 1/2 times that age πŸ‘΄
  9. You say the nicest things, nobody has ever said that to me before. Brought tears to my eyes - or was that because I spilt my hot tea on my lap when reading it? πŸ˜‚
  10. πŸ˜ƒ That can't be the correct placing can it? right in front of the rad with wires that look as if they pass between the fins. Even Triumph wouldn't have done that. More likely they are just sitting there waiting to be fitted or thrown away πŸ™ƒ
  11. Like France, another civilized country πŸ€”
  12. On my Skoda it may or may not turn off, depends if the car thinks you need the engine running to heat/cool the occupants, battery level, all this mentioned in the handbook. It may just decide what to do just to keep me on my toes, Yetis are known for their disturbing sense of humour.
  13. Maybe they count in the 10% that aren't pointless. My previous Skoda had them and in winter going to work in the mornings they certainly eased the muscles in my back. Now I'm retired I don't do early mornings😁
