Re: Please Help!!! EPB conundrum and MOT approaching.

Yes the bedding in procedure - but you have to properly adjust the shoes in the drum first which is all in the Brake bible - if the shoes are too far from the drums, then they have to be pulled too far and the actuator runs out of travel. But if its squealing, the cogs are not going to last. You abs...

Re: Please Help!!! EPB conundrum and MOT approaching.

Have you re calibrated it? I.e been through the setup routine exactly as described in Bodsy's break bible? Set up correctly with a good actuator they work perfectly. If it squeals its gone past the point it should do. And despite being reputable, it could be a knacked one!

Re: Possible humour.

I was reading an article last night about fathers and sons and memories came flooding back of the time I took my son out for his first pint. Off we went to our local which is only two blocks from the house. I got him a Fosters, he didn't like it – so I had it. Then I got him a Carling Black Label, h...

Re: Not starting after fuel pump fail

On the top of the engine at the back, under the engine cover from memory, there is a Schroeder valve - best with a friend, but measure the pressure when you crank the engine. It isn't a lot 2 or 3 psi from memory but it should come out. But it only comes out for a short time when cranking - hence ea...

Re: Disco 3 TDV6 shudder at certain speeds

Firstly, I would say 900 was a little low - and 1000 when driving is normal - the readings mean nothing above idle.

But you really need someone like Bodsy as he has a lot more experience and knowledge.

Re: Coolant temp and oil temp problems

Thats a result!

As for the repair, that's fine to get you home, but should have been fixed pronto - especially given its not a hard job!

Re: Merry Christmas

Nothing household - just some slippers. And a Weirdfish jumper. And a Spirit level which also does angles - which will be handy when I tile the floor of the utility room next week. And a RivNut tool which I will use over the next couple of days to mount the brackets of the oil cooler for the Spitfir...
