Re: Egr and servo solenoids XUD9TE

Hi there :cheesy: Service Box is finally back up and I've had a look for that solenoid: https://i.imgur.com/IVvS4Kx.jpg Looks right to me, 2 oil(?) pipes, electrical connection, 2 rubber mountings, bracket. I can't make anything of the second picture, it appears to be mostly your arm. At least, I ho...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Just a by-the-by, bumped into Pedro, my old D9's new owner earlier, still going strong after a few teething troubles with the HP pump (lack of use + crap diesel here) and since then he's added another 30,000lm to it. Still loves it but thinking about replacing it with a 508 next year.

As you were.

Re: Cleaning leather

There are loads of products out there that profess to care for the leather, not so much cleaning off the grime tho. Maybe worth a read? http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/accessories-tyres/64350/best-leather-cleaners-2018 As for smoke, you can clean the headlining in situ (don't try taking it out, you'll ...

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

Right click on the picture, hit "copy image location", come here, hit the image tags in the row above the text box (looks like a rectangle with a gorilla holding a balloon in it) and paste your link between the two lots of square brackets. https://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NzY4WDEwMjQ=/z/lg0AAOSwsh5bNkCC/$...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

What, you mean there's another way of doing it? :supafrisk:

I've also been watching a house being built on the way to Max's, at one point I saw all 5 roofers standing in a circle on the ridge having a chat. All it needed was a bar and a glass in each hand...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Sort of, 7 was my wife's idea for a temporary name as we had 7 cats at that point, so I was kind of thinking 7 of 9, but then Billie died so we only had six, so she's 7 of 6. Seven of Nine was in Voyager btw, played by the rather top-heavy Jeri Ryan.

Are you behind a work firewall perchance? Cheers, although I'm just glad it's got a roof on it again! Mess? Well yeah, you know, bad back, bad shoulder, bad leg, bad knee...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Oddly, that's the first time I've ever seen a video of myself doing anything and, surprisingly, I don't lurch about like a hunchbacked gorilla as I'd always suspected.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

As it's quiet, have a couple of vids. Svg4GoRTy0s gpk2pwdSRGQ I did film Miloš carrying a much heavier board from one end of the roof to the other but the sun bleached all the detail out. The man himself was here earlier, as the weather's looking a bit unreliable he's off to do another job that does...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

That's the plan :wink: Originally it only had the gable towards the house, the other end was flush, presumable because that end was lengthened to the extent of the gable and they couldn't be bothered to do it properly. It seems obvious but I checked with Miloš that he was going to give that end a ga...
