  2. I have been meaning to do this for ages. What I want to do is illustrate what you will find inside the engine, what's most likely to be the cause of a leak and what might also happen in rare cases. Here goes: Overall There are three areas where you may find internal diesel leaks: Behind the fuel pump door Under the rocker covers The low pressure fuel pump These pictures are of an SR2, the arrangements are much the same on the rest of the S range and in the H range too Fuel pumps: Here we have the two fuel pumps. Running across the middle of the picture is the fuel feed

  6. So you spend more money to supply good quality products, which you charge more for -- good for you. Other people don't bother and sell stuff cheaper -- good for them, it's just a different business model, low quality/price as opposed to high qaulity/price. Joe Public has to choose between cheaper and more expensive products, and very often goes for the cheap option -- and then whinges afterwards when it fails. Boo hoo, what did you expect for that price? But paying more doesn't guarantee better quality (even if it does in your case) because other vendors push out low-quality crap *and*

  7. Quite so. Another Welsh anniversary of 50 years ago still painful in the minds of many still living although not so for any loss of life more way of living is Tryweryn. This for those unfamiliar with it was the building of a dam to fill the Tryweryn river valley (forming Llyn Celyn) near Bala in North Wales for drinking water for Liverpool. The process led to the drowning of the village and surrounding farms of Capel Celyn one of the last all Welsh Speaking villages. An example of those embittered by the experience of people with power taking what they wish (that which was not for sal

  9. Completely disagree. I've spent 12 years working with Chinese suppliers and the point with any supplier regardless of location is to work with them. We put a lot of effort into agreeing very clear specifications, agreeing processes and inspection processes and rates. My complaints rate per million units sold is much lower than many competitors. My experience has been fantastic to see my suppliers absorb information and knowledge and apply best practice's. In the locations of my suppliers they have labour laws including minimum wages and are definitely not sweat shops. I have 2 staff based in S

  11. Happened to us at Wheelock once, a chap (+ boat) joined us at the water point one evening, looking a bit nervous and asking where we were going to moor. We said maybe just round the corner. He said he had come off the last space, to take water and was going back, he'd left his wife on the bank to fend off anyone who might come along wanting to take the space. He was very pleasant about it and anyway we didn't much like the look of the mooring spot so we were happy to continue, but ultimately one cannot reserve mooring spaces even if just popping to the water point. The devil in me wanted to pu

  12. I am all for self defence in any situation, but some bloke with a pole waiting for a repeat cyclist coming down towpath is not self defence its assault. As for time trials on the canal thats just plain stupid, their not a race track their a shared public place. If I was knocked over on the towpath by a cyclist and it was his/her fault i would not assault them but I would probrably rip a strip off them 'Verbally'. I have crashed into another cyclist before myself, who was in the wrong = both of us clashing under a blind bridge, we both smiled and laughed. Happy Days. Lifes t
