  1. I had a honda trx 250 for a couple of years, reliable, good for what it is, only two wheel drive, its not to power full, you could put a restricter on it, local farmer bought a one new for his grand kids but it gets used around the farm, can be picked up for not daft money
  2. oil in the water, check the hoses for high pressure when running, look for signs of sealant around the filler, bottom pully?
  3. do not have them any longer, lot of money tied up in them so sold them due to health warnings, didn't want my executors lumbered, https://forums.pigeonwatch.co.uk/forums/topic/325467-beretta-factory-matched-pair-classic-eell-12-gauge/?tab=comments#comment-2948229 lovely to shoot, they were sorely missed, nothing shot like those, so was on the lookout for another and found a EELL sporter for the right price, use it for game shooting, it is good to shoot but not quite as good as the pair, try one, you need to shoot one to see if its for you,
  4. I have 2 Vax Power 4, 2000 watts, whatever that means, one upstairs, the other downstairs, quite loud. I think they are excellent, the cleaner never uses them, she prefers the Henry. the Henry does seem quiet compared to the Vax
  5. as said previously, custom cupboard for an built in eye level oven/grill cottage I live in had a steel hob, a total pain in the behind, so bought a ceramic hob, difference is chalk and cheese, it is a lot quicker and cleaner, also so much easier to clean, just a wipe, any residue that gets burnt on, a razor blade and then a spray of wd40 and wipe it off, good as new, also now (new to me) there is a handy warning light for the still hot burners an excellent idea.
  6. after looking at revues I bought one of these, as the one who does the cleaning wanted a small cordless, sits here in the box unused, typical female, £50 and its yours
  7. hi folks right, bought one of these cheap 4000lb winches to go on my new quad, you know the ones, based in Leic's but the business address is Shanghai, anyhow while I'm waiting for the mounting plates to arrive I thought I would ask on here about the wiring. the wiring diagram that is with it is for a relay, I thought that this came with a relay as per images on the ad, but it has a control box with 5 wires coming out, one is for the rocker switch but there are quite thick long and short red wires coming from one side of the control box with again quite thick long and short black wires coming out the other side of the control box, all these four have what I would call quite heavy duty terminal connectors, no indication on the cables or control box of connections, I have heard or read somewhere short wires to the winch any advice would be much appreciated
  8. I have one of those, had the same problem, I put mine in a workmate then just screw the adjuster to the max, start it up then screw it back until the belt starts to run straight, belts tend to run slightly of centre,and need adjusting whilst running to keep straight but it does a good enough job, got a large pack of very cheap various grade belts from the bay and they run straighter with those than the expensive ones
  9. never check the MPG but top speed is still as fast as I can push it, that is slowly getting less no type of oil seemed to cut down the piston slap on those old merc 's, or the timing chain rattle for that matter even fitting new ones
  10. Duckhams that's whats in my lawn mower, thought it was the green 20 50 in the tin but its not its the hypergrade, still got about a quart left, must be some years old its what I used to use in my 124 series e class estate
  11. put silkolene in the quad, guy that services the toyota and mercedes puts in shell, don't know which type leave that to him
  12. wouldn't even oil hinges with castrol back in the far distant past when I was a mechanic on my mates FF, we used to get the guys with castrol sponsorship coming to buy oil on the QT out of the big duckhams drum that was in plain view in the back of the truck mate had one of the first twin cam escorts on the road, it was forever in the garage with a misfire/rough running, chatting one day when I picked him up from work (car was in the garage again) asked what oil they were putting in, the ford recommended GTX, said tell them to put Duckhams in, cured , it was sticking valves
  13. Nikko Sterling Mountmaster 3-9x50 AO SIDE IR MD, with dovetail mounts and yellow flip up lens covers came with a rifle I purchased, in excellent condition, works as it should £55 posted to the uk
  14. leatherman micra on the car keys, Opinel No 9 in my pocket, but not when in town or "civilisation" !!
  15. SOLD SOLD SOLD will not allow me to edit OR DELETE THE AD.
  16. it is half mil dot, just to say this scope is in great condition,
  17. Nikko Sterling Mountmaster 4 - 12 x 50 AO with mounts bought in advance to go on what was a prospective future purchase, but the rifle I have bought came with a AO IR scope, so this is surplus to my requirements "In near perfect condition and supplied with appropriate mounts. No original box but it will be packaged well for posting. £45 posted via PayPal F&F please".
  18. the normal hour and thirty five minute journey only took sixty minutes this morning, is that down to the clocks changing, if so why, M6, M61, A6, were no way as busy as usual everybody oversleep because of the hour?
  19. the choice is huge, tried all the famous makes over the years, some flylines tend to be a bit stiffer so do have a memory, airflow were notorious for it years ago I found the John Norris fly lines to be as good as any at whatever price, have used them for both my trout and for my salmon fishing, bonus is it does not break your heart when you stand on one first time out
  20. leave them in, cut them off with a grinder just under flush to the wall, a bit of filler to bring up to flush, a coat of paint, cannot tell there has ever been anything there,
  21. BSA ultra, in .22, impressed by easy to use and handle it is, pellet on pellet, 50 to 60 shots in the sweet spot, more accurate than I am, I used to have an air arms s400 classic found that to be cumbersome for the field, great for targets
  22. went into my local screwfix this morning , there was a erbauer impact driver and drill boxed set on sale, was either £58 or £68, didn't pay that much close attention I bought a Guild 18v drill driver with 2 batteries from argos for less than £50, over 3 years ago, must say have been impressed with what tough jobs it can handle,
  23. mines showing 19.8mpg round the lanes and towing
  24. put a cod liver oil capsule in both my dogs food every day, don't know if it does any good joints wise but both have good glossy coats. less than £1 a month
  25. had Simon do my Beretta EELL and DT11 on recommendation, really good craftmanship, worth the journey (nicer work than the one on the DT10 in sales)
