  1. My Audi A3 had a flashing glow plug light recently. Also went into limp-home mode. It was the EGR valve according to the code reader. The fault code was erased and the car had been ok for about 3 months. They aren't cheap and are a pain to get to.
  2. What age of microscope? I have a list of a few dealers in Scientific Instruments, but they seem to concentrate on the brass ones from the late 1800s/ early 1900s.
  3. Abbey Moly G-n paste. Molybdenum Disulphide, but thicker than grease. Designed for use in airguns, but good for other stuff too. Use sparingly though, could get sticky otherwise. I've used the dry slide that you refer to, however, when it had evaporated, there didn't seem to be enough left to do the job.
  4. I've been asked to do the same as you around horses. Using a moderated 223 in the field with horses, they couldn't care less. They were even coming up and sniffing my boots. The next time they were in the stable and they went nuts. We were asked not to go again! They are such unpredictable beasts that you have to take each situation individually. I would think that a 22lr would be OK, but I'd prefer it if the horses could see where the noise was coming from.
  5. Murder on the Orient Express and Erin Brockovich were great performances. I'd forgotten about "A Good Year" as well
  6. For Sale Altberg Defender boots, size 8M. With box, leaflet, spacers and spare laces. I normally take size 8-9 in boots, however I found these a bit tight hence they have had light use only. See pictures. Boots have only been waterproofed with the recommended Leder Gris. Slight damage to laces of one boot, although spares are included. £45 posted.
  7. +1 There are gaps on the shelves of my wholesaler. What they do have is limited to a certain number of cases per customer.
  8. Yes, I would think the same.
  9. Gordon, I think you've answered your own question, a spring can't do anything if the coils are already touching. I'd agree with Walshie as well. Doesn't look right at all. He hasn't put front springs on the rear has he?
  10. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/10565686/The-farce-of-the-EU-travelling-circus.html Scully. As far as I know, it is still going on, for the reasons stated in the article above.
  11. My garage suggested Valeo blades. They seem quiet and effective.
  12. Munger, It seems to be a really common problem. They mention a solution at around 8 minutes in the clip below. l'm sure extra fans would also help with temperature control, but sticking my head under the bonnet of a 3.0 Capri with an extra fan earlier this week, the heat seemed to be concentrated into the engine bay.
  13. Sorry, I meant that they make rust prevention products
