    Swallowed so much avtur today, everytime I burp I can taste it again. Apparently I shouldn't worry unless I start throwing up. Although at that point I'll be throwing up in my fuel tank :eek:

    Issue today with the old bus, towing a 3t trailer waiting parked on a hill waiting on some roadworks..

    Engine coughs and the gearbox gives me the old "gearbox fault".

    Go to pull off and its clear she's stuck in 3rd, which is what you want when you're towing, poor old gearbox didn't appreciate that ;)

    Close to home, so i nursed her back with it popping and farting. :confused:

    Hooked the reading up and sure enough crank sensor angry..

    It lives behind this cover on the N/S of the bellhousing.

    Removal was a pain, the connector for it is behind the cylinder head, in a nice hard to get to location. :rolleyes:

    managed to remove the clamp that holds the trans cooler lines and this allowed them to flop around, this was good enough to lever the connector out of the clip, and get it disconnected.

    Yep no more LPG for me..

    availability has near enough dried up around me, so no real point keeping it. :)

    Pretty simple, in my case.

    Can't imagine it would be too hard a job, so long as you drain down the tank before un doing an unions ;)

    Use up all the LPG. Just disassemble. Obviously they'll be dribs and drabs of gss but usual precautions. Careful with the wiring on the injectors. Guess you'll need to blank off where the LPG injectors are unless you leave them in.

    I advised MrGorsky to leave it on. Always useful for backup or to put it in for future MoT tests when the war on okd petrol cars heats up. He can bang yhrough those cheap ****ty cats of his as well.

    It'll be reet. Is basically diesel but less oily. Our cabs throw fuel overboard on shutdown rather than draining back to the tank, so part of the job is to collect it from the overboard tank before that fills and they do dump it overboard. I fill a Jerry can and mix it with 2 stroke. Free fuel. :eek:
