  1. I had running problems and starting problems with my Mitox chain saw, fit a carb kit off ebay and it starts and runs easy. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Walbro-WA-WT-Carburettor-Carb-Diaphragm-Repair-Kit-C-W-Needle-Lever/201590648195?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    New to CB radio

    19 was supposed to be mobile and 14 home base but it varied by area, now it seems to be single channel (19) with loads of power to get over each other and expensive amateur hf sets as a status symbol🙄

    New to CB radio

    I've got loads of cb's and amateur radio gear (took exam in 1998) there are a few people on near me on cb some good, some bad I've been using it since the early 80's. I keep saying I won't buy anymore cb's but then one comes along that's cheap and there I go again I know phones are easier but I like radio.
  4. I can remember them from years ago, calipers seized, cam chains went, gearbox lost gears and then there's the rot. Not seen one in years till I went to Bulgaria.
  5. I like the ones that have a gun and it takes little rubber mushrooms https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Stop-Go-Vehicle-Car-Mushroom-Plug-Gun-Tyre-Puncture-Repair-Kit/254575619190?hash=item3b45e3ac76:g:jVEAAOSwpGpenwaZ
  6. I pay £6 at a turkish run place. Getting a bit bushy now, don't fancy a DIY no2 all over though just have to live with it😀
  7. Years ago when there were loads of people on almost any aerial would do, but nowadays people are few and far between so the bigger and higher the better. I've just restarted using cb, a couple of weeks before the lockdown I saw a rare cb on facebook so I grabbed it and I've been messing with that, I already had an outside aerial so it was just a case of getting the coax out and connecting it all back up. I've got a Shakespeare ABS-1600 which has been up for years, very robust, but not made anymore I think. Good place to start still doing mail order http://www.kcb.co.uk/contents/en-uk/d3_Base-Antennas.html
  8. I get over 200meg download but when my vpn is connected it drops to 80 some sites wont let you on with a vpn.
  9. I've got an 835 and a 500 .410 Hushpower
  10. I got one that said it was suitable for rim-fire and when I shot it it turned the targets spoon shaped. I got a refund and hammered them back flat between 2 large hammers and use them for airguns.
  11. I look on wish, then check eBay and its usually cheaper, sometimes a fair bit. Plus at least on eBay there's buyer protection because there's a lot of junk on wish.
  12. I'm sure it can only be mot exempt if it hasn't been modified yup all here https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/670431/vehicles-of-historical-interest-substantial-change-guidance.pdf
  13. Fixed, it was the gas valve after all, if it wasn't illegal to do so I could have done it but it was done professionally by a gas safe engineer.
  14. Yea I've read about new boilers not even managing to get to 10 yrs without requiring replacement whereas that one is over 30 yrs old and the whole system has needed 1 electric valve, 1 pump and a few thermocouples in it's life. Annoyingly if I'd done it myself it would have only been out of action for less than 2 days
