  1. Vehicle has now gone.
  2. Time has come to get rid of a vehicle. 2003 Kia Sorento XE 2.5 diesel auto Reg. LT03 XAE 107000 ish MOT until Nov 2021 2 keys, V5 etc I've still been driving it 50+ miles a day. Bad points Glow plugs are dead, garage tried to remove one but it snapped off and is stuck in, stopped there as didn't want to risk further complications. Hard to start but run fine as you would expect. Outside is tatty, lacquer peeling on the bonnet, scuffs, scratches as you would expect for a 17 year old vehicle driving around country lanes. Temp sensor reads high on the
  3. Mk1 Kia Sorento has this problem with 4wd on demand system iirc. The Kia was not meant to be a permanent 4wd vehicle only when it detected slip. Having different diameter tyres front and rear caused some sort of clutch to engage all of the time and it would wesr out. No real effect on the vehicle except it made it 2wd. Below is a summary from owners website. Maybe your vehicle has a similar system? TOD system, these are well made transfer boxes but kia made a mess of the control system, these are keeping the dealers "very" busy, they are not 4x4 they are only 2wd but the transfer box con
  4. I bought a an 1990s Westwood T1400. It is a bit tatty, have to hotwire it to start it but runs well. Cut through 3/4 acre of 10" + grass at the weekend just had to take it slow. I've had to repair the grass box with an old metal shelf and replace the sweeper brushes. Picks up grass well, does stripes if that's your thing. You can get wood chippers etc for it if you want.
  5. This is what I have left. All face to face stuff really. 2 1/2 tubs CSB5 approx 1.25kg - £35 3/4 tub Vectan A1 approx 300g - £25 300 approx old Eley Kynoch 65mm paper cases, 95% unused and primed - £15 482 CX2000 Cheddite 209 primers - £18 50 Cheddite 69mm new primed cases, clear, 12mm head - £5 2kg SG buckshot I also have several hundred other primers, old Winchester ones and a tub of mixed ones that need a new home. These would be free to who ever buys something else if they want them. I would like to see certificate of who ever wants to buy them, coul
  6. Hi Sorry for the delayed reply. I have the powders, primers, primed cases still left. I've offloaded most on the dreaded bay as there was no interest on here. I will post an updated list asap.
  7. Just to bump this up the listings. Just bumping this up. Been sat not un-used for over 12 months so want to get it moved on to a new home. Open to offers, will split etc. Collection is preferred due to the current hassle of trying to post things with a young child in tow but will try if someone really wants something just might take longer. Thanks
  8. Well that didn't to plan. The guy practically gave it away to someone for less than half he was hinting at to me. Oh well, win some, you lose some. Thanks to all that posted good and bad points. It has still been informative and food for thought in the future.
  9. Farm in my village still has a thrashing machine come round for 2-3weeks a year to make thatching straw. It was October - November last year (2019).Machine was a Ransoms, painted in a now rather weather worn pink ish colour and driven by a Fordson Major. I have a short video but not sure how to upload here.
  10. Maybe but it's going to cost me regardless. Even without moving the tank and replacing in existing location, I'd still need to do put some fire proof screen in place as it's too close to the shed. So I might as well move it to a better location.
  11. Tuffa Tank and another company make these. I did look but they seemed expensive, but I've just looked again and seen one for a price within £300 ish of what I propose. Would certainly save a lot of hassle. Cost is getting up there though and would have to go plastic instead of steel.
  12. Hi I am looking at moving my oil tank to a 'better' location, tank is also single skin and 16 years old so will get a new one at the same time. I would like to move it to the far corner of my garden but it won't meet the separation distances in the regs without fire protection. Are there any OFTEC bods on here who could advise if what I propose is correct? Just in the thought/planning process at the moment so don't want to start calling installers out just yet. Ideally the tank will be located about 400-500mm from neighbours fence and fence at the end of garden. Tank will also be wit
  13. Seems it might not be such a foolish idea after all. Thanks for all your input.
  14. Thanks for your views gents. As always there will be differing opinions and good to see not everyone hates or loves them. It would be mainly my vehicle day to day and pile the family in it when we do 'things'. Shopping and other tasks are normally tackled by the wife's car. When we get another dog a pick-up appeals, as does when collecting hay, feed, wood etc. With regards to ride. My Sorento is a bit 'choppy' on the country roads I use everyday, the old work Ford Ranger 2006 had a smoother ride i think.
  15. I would like a Pathfinder but the ones I can afford are the same model which suffers from snapped chassis (D40??). I live in a quite rural spot and the wife has a horse so nice to have something a bit robust to tackle anything that might be required. I'm just tempted because it's priced close enough for me to buy it. Seller said he is in no rush to sell so ponder it for a while. I saw it yesterday and apart from body damage and dirty interior seems good all round. Maybe a compromise too far.
