Re: Caravaning with a Traveller

Cue everyone moaning about it will affect safety....personally I doubt it will, but there we are. Part of the reason for doing this is to fast-track people into HGV testing, where you would have to take this B+E test before the HGV test. They are also amalgamating the rigid body and articulated tes...

Re: Removing the bumper nuts - long extension bar?

If you can get it to move at all, thats the battle 90% won Douse it with penetrating oil, and just keep working it back and forth, every time you go back and forward you should be able to move it just a little bit more - that will help get lubricant in the threads and the rust thats blocking it from...

Only fools would refuse the vaccine covid kills :evil: I agree... but with some exceptions. There are people out there where there are genuine and legitimate concern that the medical risks associated with taking the vaccine are more significant that taking the vaccine... but this would have been ad...

E10 is already here, look for it on the pumps...
The pumps have to say E10 before the deliveries arrive. Most haven't actually got it yet - ask the nice people at the counter next time you fill up :)

Re: E10 Fuel September 2021

All cars before 2011 is pure rubbish...

For example Ford confirm that my 1993 Transit is ok for it.

Its been in the US and AUS for many years, so while its new to us - its not new.

A lot of aftermarket ones are marked there - but not all.

Factory cam identification is by a series of rings/grooves along the shaft

Re: London in the 1920's and the 1930's in colour
