    Today I put a new sticker on the outside of the front screen. No I don't need it but in my usual style I wanted it ! Took the battery off and put that on charge as well seeing as it hasn't been used for nearly a fortnight now and with the cold want to make sure it'll start without issue Sunday morning for when I go shooting. Battery only a couple of months old, but just to be sure....

    I've had another session on my manifold today. I've drilled it where the bolts had snapped off where the EGR blanking plate goes. I've managed to tap them to 6mm too by putting the tap in one of those tap wrenches that looks like a drill chuck and easing it round a few degrees at a time with a Mole wrench, hoping it won't snap off in the manifold. It feels like I've got a decent amount of thread going on in there and have put the blanking plate back in with hex head bolts instead of the Allen screws that were on before. It took a while, but compared to the time it would probably take to get the manifold off (which would involve taking out ancillaries like the air conditioning pump and parts of the cooling system) it was probably worth doing it in situ. I don't think I've got the holes exactly centred on the original bolts, but it only has to hold a little plate on - it's not as if it's a main bearing cap. The engine has its performance back now. it's surprising what a bit of pressure leakage upstream of the turbo will do. Then I hosed all the soot out of the engine bay. I think she was running a bit rich. The ECU wouldn't be getting the engine speed expected for a given level of fuelling, so would be increasing the fuel. I shall fill up tomorrow and see just how much extra fuel I've burned coming back from Wales with a leaky manifold compared to normal.

    You know what fella, I always where practical try and support local businesses for the same reason. If we don't, they'll fold and then we'll all be at the mercy of the chains. as an example, look at what Tesco's have done to the high street, and we all moan about how **** they are. Halfords are the same. use the local places or we lose them !

    I washed out the horn on the 90.

    Went to use it the other day and all I got was a geriatric asthmatic pffffff noise that might get heard by a cat if it was sat on the bonnet.
    It needed a little clean.

    Cheers

    Well,

    No wonder it felt a tad grumbly when it was up on axle stands.

    Today I bought a Disklok off Ebay. Which will have half moons welded onto the back without delay.

    I'm a poet, and didn't know it....

    Off to the shops again this morning. It's only a trip to the supermarket but my girlfriend likes it. She's American and they need supermarkets in their lives.
