    They normally recon three changes to do a complete change and replace the filter on the last one.

    Give it good few hundred miles before you drop again.

    Yep, in the boot - it's where the cables run in to the enclosure. The foam padding is crap and it had worked loose. The edge of the enclosure is quite sharp!

    Yeah, that looks bad. Only 1 of mine was completely separated however another 3(!) were on their way. Its just a quick fix for now and I've cut up a microfiber towel to provide a better cushion for the opening. When I get back to it I'll find some shaped rubber with a channel to make a proper 'mouth' for that part. Will probably do the same for the airlines at the rear as that foam stuff is really poor.

    500mi between Gearbox services is a good way to flush it, ideally worth pulling the old gearbox filter apart and seeing if there is any significant debris inside.

    While I've had the ABS grumbling because of the split reluctor ring, I've not had the day lights come on since replacing the sensor!

    Deployed the dogbulance again. My collie really can't get a break. Violent seizures today knocking him for six.

    I think a previous owner hit something and caused some serious damage to the wing and loom.

    Not going well for him. Overnight stay in the out of hours vet (so many puppies awooing for their parents). Going to be an expensive night.

    I might have to start looking at ways of making Sandy a better dogbulance, currently just a hammock over the back seats as Socks gets travel sick in the boot. Want something a bit more comfortable for him.

    Otto got the steering linkage reconnected - so much better movement without 25 years of sh*te blocking the splines. Almost an easy job.
    Retorqued the inlet manifold and valley gasket clamp bolts - all went 1/8 to 1/4 turn tighter.
    Fitted the ignition coils and the cleaned fuel rail, with 8 new 4 hole Bosch injectors to replace the Lucas single hole ones.
    Gave up as frozen toes and dark.

    He got dosed up to high heaven. They elected to send him home with us, mostly I think because the wife and I were getting bad vibes from that place, won't use them again. It has been 13 hours since his last seizure, I think we're out of the woods now.

    Had to have a slumber party downstairs to keep an eye on him all night. So much snoring on the drive home though, Socks does enjoy a car ride.

    Poor dog, really hope you find out what is causing the seizures. I have had 3 Border Collies they are great, so feel your pain.
