    Sorted the low pressure screen wash! Remaining old jet had split, letting water everywhere.
    Took the accessories belt off to see how things are getting along.. replaced the tensioner pulley last year.. it's all wobbly so i put the old one back on that I'd kept in case of emergency, it's better than the new one!!

    It was a lower mileage cluster. I made sure of that. But it didn't update to higher milage. Could've trimmed off 100k if I left it. But as it didn't solve the issue I switched them back.

    You can get the core for a couple of hundo, bit fiddler than a whole new turbo, but it is the important bits, assuming the housing wasn't damaged by tired bearings.
    Alan said he has a spare, got to see if we can arrange transport of it. Failing that one of the lads at work has a RRC with the later tbox that uses a VC, which he is replacing with an older mechanical kind, so he has offered that if I can wait. I'd have to changing the housings though, as they are different from RRC to P38. Still second hand, but pretty low miles.

    Yet again another pile of miles with work, then towed all weekend hassle free as usual
    Next weekend its another 400 miles with trailer and car on,
    Weekend after its towing Aberdeen to Newcastle and back,
    Then weekend after i have to take 1 car down then head up with empty trailer and back down with my car, then the same the Monday to get them both home, i genuinely wouldn't be suprised if this things on 200k by xmas time

    I really ought too invest in something newer like a tdv8 with a bit more poke about it but i have such a massive respect for this thing

    To be fair, 3.6 throw a pair of turbos at it get rid of the egrs, how much worse then a td6 can it be....

    Bought some jenolite to treat some surface rust on my chassis.

    And filled it up today, got a compliment from a gent in an L405 as he was filling at the adjacent pump..

    Got chatting with him, distracted only intended to put £40 in it, ended up having the pump click off at £110 :eek::confused::D

    Oh well, guess I'll be dailying the P38 for this week! :D

    It's not, just take a hlaf turn at a time until you get close.
    Wd40, two 13mm and two 17mm spanners and a good shifter for the adjuster. Tap the collera and around the adjuster to crack any crap free. ;)
