  1. Mcspredder, the wheels take yout type B sensor. The warning light is on with the original wheels and tyres. Apparently over pressuring the tyres from the recommended running pressure clears the warning. The second set of wheels came without the sensors fitted to the rims so I'm having to buy a set. Kia wanted over £500 for four! I'm wanting four sensors for the second set of wheels, that don't cost a fortune.
  2. try disconnecting the battery. Rebooting the system may clear it??
  3. Was told, when I bought a Freelander 1 years ago that it was set up to feel as though it was front wheel drive and the gearing was running quicker to the front, than the rear. Advised to put new tyres on the rear if only changing two so not to put extra stress on the IRD and rear diff. Didn't mention anything about the useless viscous coupling!
  4. That's what I asked but it went through mot without any advisories ? Was told to inflate tyres to 36psi, take it for a run and it'll clear. Did that, still on!
  5. I've got a spare set of wheels for the OH's car, for winter tyres, an they came without any TPMS valves. Kia wanted a fortune for 4 and that's not happening. Has anyone replaced the TPMS for aftermarket ones? Can you reccomend a supplier of these sensors? Would normal valves work or are the rim fittings different? Clumber.
  6. I really like the idea of smaller machines and sanders are on sliders so they are stored neatly out of the way until needed. A lot of thought and time has gone into this fellas workshop, just wish I could get my garage half as tidy
  7. For the tackle tarts or those who 'get wood'! How many clamps do you need?
  8. When he was in his prime fighting weight would be 27 - 28Kgs. He was about eight when that picture was taken and about 30Kgs. Unfortunately he has Progressive Retinal Atrophy, PRA. Stills okay during daylight but dusk is a problem. Still gets excited when the gun comes out Will look for another next year.
  9. Myself I found him easy to train. He's quite a soft dog so went gently but he'd pick up most things second or third time of asking. He could be quite headstrong at times as he grew so we'd pack up for the day. Could get bored easily so I mixed it up each day. He'd need scent or would look at me with a 'your joking' look when we moved on to cold game. I went along the Divid Lisset line with bits from quite a few other trainers. They work like a Springer but a little slower and with a purpose, I'd say. The same but different, not as frantic if you get me? Fantastic noses.
  10. Quite the characters. Love em!
  11. I get it! Personally I did steadying with hens, similar to the link. https://youtu.be/edF9NGurOz0 When it came to the flush/drop training I did it while walking the boundaries. Not ideal but made do. Good luck.
  12. Are you wanting to race them or keep fancy birds like tumblers or fan tails? We used a 6x4 shed for youngsters and strags (strays). Mesh door inside the main outer door. Side window became the trap to a outside aviary built on to the side of the shed extended higher than the roof. Simple perches. Not kept birds for nearly 30 years but my brother has a few, mainly for pets now. Word of warning, which ever you get they'll attract feral pigeons and being on a farm will be a PITA. RPRA will give you more information
  13. Used to see our local FEO out and about, lives in next village, so got updates until he retired. Never had any other contact only for renewals. Mind you living in a small village some folk know what's going on before it happens!
  14. I was surprised by how much land and water they've bought up and the deals done on beef. They've been going about buying into different countries around the world for quite some time, nice and quietly. Africa springs to mind. Like you say, it'll be interesting to see how the Aussies go. Could be a turning point for the rest who are in a similar position?
