    one of the things of progress is that companies want 'cheap'.. experience comes at a price.

    You're not old. Some of this lot are lucky if they go out with their pants on backwards ... Their neighbours are luckier still.

    It was politicians that effectively stopped apprenticeships describing them as "outdated in the modern technological age". Companies were quick to realise that it was cheaper to employ already trained staff than do the training.

    B5858F9A-482A-4132-A072-283E7A31F1FB.jpeg Hi guys I’m back and straight at it. So I’ve got one injector out the first one on the right bank as viewed from front. I can’t pull the second one out using adjustable grips but it’s so tightly in I’m a little nervous of breaking it anyhow might go to the left bank and try to get those out.
    I’m also looking at the sump is this as straight forward as it looks from below already got starter out any advice whilst I stop for a cuppa would be great

    Re the sump. My tip is to take the oil out first before removing it.

    If you leave it in and pull off the sump, someone may photograph you and that would ruin your chances of getting elected in Canada.

    Yeah, bit odd that. I doubt Aladdin was white. If I go to a fancy-dress dressed as a dog with floppy ears and a tail I wouldn't expect a mob declaring me a canine-ist. let alone as part of an amatuer dramatics group 20 years ago when I was half out of my skull on alcohol. He should have turned around and just said: f*ck off you miserable c*nts.

    People are just so sensitive...
    To the point it’s almost bazaar...,
    I like forums
    But I don’t partake in social media
    It’s the downfall
    Of modern society
