  1. It was great to meet Nick and Jeff. Arguments on here whilst sometimes passionate mask the fact that with very very few exceptions it isn’t personal! i can also vouch for the fact that Jeff, quite apart from his impressive facial hair has working locks down to a fine art. There is a knack to always knowing where to be next to make it work smoothly, and it is great to see in action. In other news, the gearbox seems to have recovered! milky ATF suggested water contamination, so we pumped out the ATF, half a liter of red diesel and ran the box for 10 minutes both ways, pumped out the diesel and new ATF. Running sweetly for now. Slight ATF leak around the selector arm, but not tempted to try to fix that!
  2. Sounds promising is the PRM 90 a straight swap, easy enough for the mechanically challenged to perform. With no need to start adjusting engine height etc?
  3. Yeah bluddy autocorrect! it it a Hurth!
  4. Daughter is having gearbox “fun” gearbox runs fine in reverse, but in forward the shaft turns but only idly, and there is no clunk as it engages. Once the gearbox ATF is warm it engages OK box is HBW150 do these use the oil pressure for shifting? Going to try an ATF change to see if it improves
  5. The purpose of taxation here is to encourage alternative (less polluting) energy sources. At present, and in the near future, I simply don't see such sources becoming viable We already pay the duty, but this change could lead to an end to canalside supply, and an increase in people fueling from cans, which would have an environmental impact
  6. I shall wait to see what the regulations say. It will be interesting to see if they can make watertight regulations here.
  7. Well, since mid May you have been allowed to move house, so a transfer to the boat is OK. Better still, from Saturday, those who live alone are allowed to go and stay in another household overnight. I cannot see any requirement that the other household has other residents. So, as I live alone, it would appear that I can legally go and stay overnight on the boat.

  10. Of course, if it needs to be replaced, and you break the fuse carrier in the process, the beauty of blade fuses is that in an emergency you can discard the fuse carrier and connect spade connectors direct to the fuse
  11. It is all about viral load. One virus particle isn't enough to cause an infection. Being closer, and being in proximity for a longer time increase the risk of sufficient viral load to cause infection. This is all about probabilities. They can't isolate people who have a 1:1000 chance of being infected by an encounter. They can isolate people who have a 1:10 chance.
  12. Contact tracers will wish to know who you have been "in close contact" with, That means 15 minutes at less than 2m distance. The contact tracers are going to ask about the contact that you had, and account for PPE (including cough screens). The entire staff of Morrisons aren't going into isolation just because Tracey who popped in to buy her pot noodles tests positive
  13. Possibly because it is a fairly pointless exercise, and if they said "now" FB would be alive with people complaining about that as well. It is interesting that this is NOT being added to the Coronavirus regs, but being done under conditions of carriage. This isn't coming from PHE, or in response to scientific advice. It is being done in response to the transport unions demanding it,
