    Land Rover 2.5 tdi belts.

    No cambelt, the td5 is chain. There is one big belt on it, get a set of spanner’s to take the fan off makes it an easy job. I have always been told if you are carrying a spare belt run it for a few hundred miles first, New belts can fail!

    Yes, there are loads of disco ecu’s about. I spent months trying to get a second hand fender ecu. If you are struggling give dynachip a call.

    They are different. A few companies out there offer a repair service.

    Ive gone disco to fender just to get me going but it’s not quite right. Certain things are different, and you would need each injector code putting across.

    The injectors are coded, if you put a second hand ecu in you will need to put the codes across.

    Woodburner.. Morso 6143 vs contura 510

    Be aware the contura has a fixed baffle plate, you will need a sweep who knows what he is doing or a access plate on the vit pipe!

    Most bizzare job you've had

    I had to take an evening job to make ends meet. Spring maker by day then of an evening I did a bit of turning. My main task was turn a taper on some wooden handles, and radius the ends. One day I asked what the handles were actually used for, to my surprise they were being leather bound during the day shift then sold by Ann summers as whips!!!! That made the job a little more interesting!!

    Help with Petrol Strimmers/Brush cutters decision

    I do a lot of grass cutting this time of year, over the past couple of weeks I have gone through 2 cheap Chinese strimmers! They just can't handle hours of work! Either stihl or echo, my old srm echo I have just keeps going! I've had to replace the head due to bearings wearing out but it's worked for hours on end for years!

    TD5 Turbo Replacement Help

    Oil starvation is the reason, at 120000 rpm they don't last long dry!

    Who drives a boxster?

    We have had a boxster for years, you can't beat the sound of the flat 6! Ours is used as an every day driver, it's used as a work car and has racked up some miles. We found the more it was used the better it was. In 5 years of ownership it has never let us down!!

  19. I can't speak highly enough of the Subaru awd system! It's a phenomenal car, mpg isn't great but try not grinning ear to ear after driving the turbo version. If you want more ground clearance check out the forester or outback, they offer better measurements than most so called 4x4s

    They use the greatest tolerance on both male and female threads so they will feel loose, it's the shoulders that square them up!

    Motorcycle test

    Good luck, you will be grinning from ear to ear. The 600 will feel a lot more stable which inspires confidence. Try not to get nervous and keep a clear head!! When my partner did her test she really couldn't get on with the 125, she was being pushed all over because of the weather, stuck her on the 600 and it transformed her riding confidence Don't panic about the high speed stuff, I was told years ago the bike is better at straight lines than you, just relax and let it move about beneath you. Riding motocross teaches a lot about how they behave, to a beginner it can feel unnerving.
