    You get screwed by the screws on your wing, They call you the fish on the wing ;)
    When I used to get a v.o to see my brother who was serving a 6 stretch in The Green he always used to say that he never saw anybody or heard about anyone being bummedo_O.
    His mate who was sentenced with him and in the same M.C as my brother went into the medical unit as he had mental health issues, he then got sent off to Belmarsh and went on their Medical wing.
    My brother was glad he kept his gob shut and stayed in The Green. Belmarsh is notorious for criminal groups and gang affiliation on all the wings but i have never heard of any botty goings on in there.
    Though no doubt it does. :eek:

    You might find this amusing.
    Neighbour asked me to look at his car this affo.
    54 plate Peugeot hatchback thing.
    Said it "conked out" but then drove OK except it was slow on pick up.
    Started fine, revved fine after a little hesitation, (engine was cold) He's about 20 years younger than me but hasn't much clue. Apparently his Dad taught him a bit about cars once. He said things like "could it be crud in the carb" (He's shoved half a bot of Redex into the tank).
    I asked him when it was last serviced, he said he never serviced it, just kept the fluids topped up. We discussed whether the air filter could be clogged up, so decided to have a look. Air filter cover held on with 4 screws, one using a home made plate of metal to clamp on to a broken corner. That off the bit of plastic fell off, it had obviously been glued on, badly!
    took two others out, yet more bits of plastic fell off!
    The final screw gave no grip as the Phillips head was too rusty, so the Molegrips had to be used. That was the only corner where the plastic didn't fall off.:rolleyes:
    We got it off and the air filter looked fine! sod's law!
    So poor blokey now has to source a new filter cover. He doesn't know where any scrap yards are, frankly he is now on a steep learning curve. He did say he wants to learn and get more confident with doing his own work.
    Looks like I've got a hobby.:eek:
    He wants to change the plugs, so I told him where to get them from and to pick up a Haynes manual.
    I also explained a bit about how modern cars have throttle pots, lambda sensors, injectors, coil packs, etc etc.
    I told him I'd do the plug change with him then he'd be able to do it himself next time. He said "You remind me of my Dad, and that's a compliment by the way!"
    (The OBD2 reader showed nowt by the way.:rolleyes::()
    Think it honestly just needs an Italian tune.:):):)
    Oh and he did remember the cam belt had been changed and that he was keeping an eye on the mileage for the next one.
    Phew!
    Feel guilty about his bust airfilter lid but it seriously just fell apart in my hands, officer!:oops::oops::oops:
