  2. Yes I remember those days , I've done the very same thing . Modern diesel has an anti waxing agent to keep the diesel Liquid during the winter months so it is very unlikely to have waxy diesel now unless it is several degrees below zero degrees C for a longish period of time . A small amount of petrol mixed with the diesel definitely helped in the old days but it is definitely not recommended for modern vehicles, in fact it could be the kiss of death ! Many modern diesel vehicles have automatic fuel heaters and some also have electronic coolant heaters that cut in if the temper
  3. Good luck to you, you're going to need it ! You do realise that the door will be locked after you rejoin so there will be no escape for you when the EU collapses into ruins . If you want to rejoin the EU then no Brexiteer would dream of stopping you , we are all about freedom of choice and democracy.
  4. Absolutely! There are many millions of us pawns all looking forward to building a new free and prosperous future for the UK . You are welcome to join us on this fantastic journey , we hold no grudges and will not judge you for your past mistaken views. All are welcome black , white , yellow , brown , left , right , middle, religious, atheists, rich , poor , disabled , every human being is welcome to join the new age of freedom by joining the new Reform party !
  5. I can smell you excitement from here . If they hadn't sacked him from LBC he would probably not be relaunching the Brexit Party . This is what happens in a democratic country when the left try to silence Normal ordinary people that dare to speak the truth , the left have shot themselves in the foot big time . You can't keep a good honest man of the people down in a free country , let's hope Nigel can help us all keep the whole of the UK free for the future ! Three cheers for the new Reform Party ! ( formerly called the Brexit Party)
  6. You're such an optimist ! Still don't worry Nigel Farage is about to relaunch the Brexit Party so all's well that ends well . https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-06-14/brexit-champion-farage-plans-party-relaunch-sunday-express-says https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/1295440/nigel-farage-brexit-party-return-boris-johnson-EU-trade-deal
  7. And Brun -. Leave me Breathless - Live . Absolutely stunning ! I have wetness in my eyes ! https://open.spotify.com/album/52gC84AOPc07RAAF7Erw9E?si=6GwKbZcFQZewE7P_6Q66PQ
  8. The secret is to light a small fire under the sump to warm the oil up before starting it, they fire up quite easily with a bit of heat assistance . Some of the old Cummins diesels had a built in canister filled with Ether on the inlet manifold , you gave it 2 or 3 measured squirts before starting and it fired up with a crack and rattle and gave off a lovely smelling smoke .
  9. Thanks ! The 500 was years ahead of it's time and paved the way for the modern HSD that is fitted to millions of cars and commercial vehicles now. When you compare it to the Leyland 680 and AEC 760 that were the engines it had to compete with there was no contest the 500 had much more usable power and was far more economical on fuel . Saying that my heart was won by the old Gardner engines, they were a very old design but the engineering was superb , they were just run in at about 500,000 miles they were also the perfect marine diesel. The horizontally opposed two stroke
  10. The 500 was indeed a revolutionary engine but it was not without faults in fact its main strength ( the fixed head ) was also its main weakness . I was an apprentice when this engine first appeared and worked with the engineers when they were received back under warranty with cracks across the valve seats and the fixed top of the block . New valves and specially hardened valve seats could be fitted but it was a major job that involved lifting the engine block away from the crankcase , Pistons , and con rods using an overhead crane and working on the valves up inside the bores .
  11. I have never got around to fly fishing but it is definitely on my bucket list , I know little of the technique or tackle but I love the idea of it as the purest form of fishing . I am looking forward to June the 16th so I can get back onto the Thames and chase those Barbel and Chub , not to mention the odd monster carp , I sometimes pick up the occasional trout ! But that's another story !
  12. It is worth taking the lid off and cleaning the laser lens with Alchohol and a cotton bud . It is also worth cleaning the fluff build up from the laser sled that has stuck to the grease on it , you will be amazed at the amount that collects on it and stops the laser moving smoothly and in extreme cases jams it completely ! I have fixed many Cd and universal disc players this way !
  13. Fishing is my other main hobby. I love the closeness to nature and the sense of wellbeing it gives me , also catching the odd fish or two occasionally , which are always checked for any injury and treated with special antiseptic on hook hole or damaged scales then returned to the water even when sea fishing . https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gardner-Tackle-Intensive-Care-Fishing/dp/B01N9TUHW5/ref=pd_sbs_200_5/261-7523475-0930164?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01N9TUHW5&pd_rd_r=929e480f-e92b-4319-b740-161f9400c5c6&pd_rd_w=iYTKE&pd_rd_wg=A101V&pf_rd_p=2773aa8e-42c5-4dbe-bda8-5c
  14. lets hope you don't hate the country and people you are moving to as much as you hate the UK and it's inhabitants .
  15. But scratching the sides of cars and kicking mirrors off because you don't like them is not a very adult thing to aspire to do is it . It's called criminal damage !
  16. So are you offering to end your own existence for the sake of the planet ?
  17. Not true get you facts right ! The corona virus can be transferred with aerosol droplets from sneezing or spitting . https://www.wired.com/story/are-running-or-cycling-actually-risks-for-spreading-covid-19/ quote from the link below . https://theconversation.com/coronavirus-drifts-through-the-air-in-microscopic-droplets-heres-the-science-of-infectious-aerosols-136663 When a person coughs, talks or breathes, they throw anywhere between 900 to 300,000 liquid particles from their mouth. These particles range in size from microscopic – a thousandth the width of a hair – up
  18. I am not surprised in the slightest , you seem to be exactly the type of nasty twonk that does that sort of thing. Your parents must be so proud.
  19. This happened when I had a sandstone patio laid using this compound. The manufacturer is correct , sun and weather soon get rid of the stains within a few weeks . Any attempt to clean it off with other chemicals might do more harm than good if it gets into the jointing. I am very pleased with the results .
  20. The Philips Cd pro mechanisms are still available to buy new and parts to repair them from this company. https://encosystems.net/product/philips-cd-pro-2/ https://encosystems.net/about/ I would recommend any transport that uses this mechanism, it's probably the best Cd mechanism ever made .
  21. If you look at the videos of Stan Ovshinskys metal solar panels they work very effectively in low light and rainy conditions so the UK would be an ideal place to use them . Hydrogen hydrolizers and fuel cells turn dirty contaminated / salt water into fresh drinkable water as a by product of the process . https://phys.org/news/2018-08-closer-sustainable-energy-seawater.html Australia is already gearing up to sell it's sunshine to the rest of the world . https://www.sbs.com.au/news/australian-sunshine-could-soon-be-farmed-to-power-an-asian-nation
