    I have one, but this one is manual. The automatics are being used elsewhere

    At the moment we're after 3, but in different locations. It's a cat rescue I help with. Ferals are caught, neutered, and farms, or similar found for them. The little one I was after earlier is really young. If we get them young enough they can sometimes become pets.
    Strays/abandoned are caught and taken to vet to be scanned and health issues sorted.

    Today I had a nice 90 mile drive in the old bus (P38), and despite all the traffic chaos and the sudden appearance of "ABS Fault/Traction Fault" (AGAIN) it was a nice uneventful drive. :)

    Any tricks to getting an abs sensor out? Or is destruction with mole grips the only way?

    Argh!! New exhaust manifold gaskets, old ones evidence of leaking, new ones on!! Can still hear it blowing :(
    And something is squeaking!! Sounds like fan belt, or maybe bearing.. but only hear it under load/heavy acceleration.. tensioner is ok, could it really be slipping? All bearings feel 'ok'

    I spent hrs on mine which, when I eventually gave up and got the hub in the vice, realised that they were never going to come out conventionally.
    Feckers were welded in.

    Used one of those windscreen repair kits yesterday on the MX5 on a stone chip. Blooming marvelous. £4.45 against the £40 insurance company wanted me to pay. If you don't know where it was you wouldn't notice the repair

    Ooer.. You may have a track worn Into the manifold face..
    With a manifold, I start to bolt from one side to the other or start from the middle outwards. That way you chase any tension out of the manifold. :)
