Re: and today i have mostly been...

A lot of the exchanges I used to work in had (probably still have) a different sort of UPS, usually with something interesting like "Rolls Royce" written on them... Guess what me and Goran did today.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

It's a point, yes. I did say my first cheapy exploded in my hands, it's a bit of an exaggeration but it made a loud fshz-ing noise and threw out a cloud of sparks, fortunately I had the presence of mind to just drop the thing, but I could well imagine this one jamming up, smashing the ali casing and...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

My angle grinder's packed up :( It's actually loosing an bearing so may be repairable. This would be the cheap 'n' cheerful one I bought from the supermarket here for about 20 quid after the Bosch I'd had for about 20 years was flipped out of my hands and self-destructed on the floor when I was sand...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

They tell me there was more once. Quite a few years back my friend Vesna had enough snow slide off her roof to flatten her car :shock: So yeah, snow deflectors. It actually slides off the solar panels here with enough speed to clear the terrace and leave a heap all the way along the railings.

Re: Ebay Etc. Just "Run-In" 406s

The V6's do have 4 cams but I guess it sounds better to some to tout it like it's something, er, different. Hold on, 1977? :shock: And the mileage is..? This came through the email earlier, highlighted because the seller was too lazy to put 3 zeros after the 110 miles :roll: https://i.ebayimg.com/im...

Thankyew 8) It is starting to look a hell of a lot better.

The roofers returned, they were here a whole 20 minutes and... it's done!

Errr, why did they finish with half a snow deflector? Couldn't they have just... Ah well, I guess that's the way it's done.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I have a tin roof :cheesy: They started yesterday putting the battens up and today they got most of the tin up. https://i.imgur.com/ZU1udti.jpg https://i.imgur.com/rcUL66a.jpg Yes, there's a gutter. Only on one side though,the other side is below that hazelnut and I'd have no way of clearing the lea...

Re: Help with A/C

Ah, so there's no way of getting to the other side, damn. I don't know how the relays are controlled (not by the button on the dash anyway, the ecu tells it to switch on) as there are no diagrams that I've managed to find, even the far more comprehensive full-mux diagrams show very little inside the...

Re: Help with A/C

I'm not sure how the system would respond if you fed power to the compressor, however if the air conditioning is turned on it probably wouldn't matter unless the system is empty. I've found the feed, wire 8060A, pin 13 on the 16-way green connector. I suppose this has a 25% chance of being the conne...

Re: Help with A/C

No matter how much I magnify the picture I can't see any damage - is this your BSI? Looks like the pin circled has no connection this side so there must be a track on the other side. Not seeing it I can't say how to proceed but maybe if you can connect a meter to any existing part of the track and p...

Re: Engine swap

Does anyone know if a 2.0l 16v diesel from a 307 would fit? Fit yes, run, not without a hell of a lot of work. Same with the 2.2, thing is with these cars is the ecu and bsi are matched, you have to change both, so if it's coming from a different car you'll have a nightmare trying to make it all ha...

Re: My new 406 project #2

There was a cover loose under the back seat of my D8, I can't remember if it was just a plug or if it was the cover for the tank sender but that was pretty nibbled under the seats. I just gave 'em a wire brush and stuck some black paint on. Hey, nobody but you is ever going to see that...
