  1. I have had similar issues when I ran my own garage and we were a Bosch agent specialising in fuel injection, tuning and high-tech repairs. Had a guy bring his car in for a fuel injection problem fault. Repaired it and handed over the keys and the bill for the work done. He whinged about the price saying that he had already spent lots of money elsewhere and hadn't got a repair at those places and now I was asking him for additional money for my work. I asked him why he didn't go back to the places that hadn't fixed it and complain to them rather than me, who had sorted it. I also had to remind certain customers that they were paying for the expertise and not necessarily the time taken. Having said that we often found that we got the very, very complicated repairs to sort out when everyone else had tried and failed and, therefore, creamed off the easy repairs and so you sometimes could not charge the full amount of time taken if it was that complex or convoluted a diagnosis.

  3. Skipton looking over the L&L. Roger
  4. We have moved from Oxfordshire to Yorkshire and have found the water up here much softer than Oxfordshire but our water there didn't come out of a borehole. Roger
  5. When we were boating in France a few years ago, on a boat lived in permanently by a French couple, I drank some water that was out of the canal. It was filtered through large, gradually finer filters and then finally passed through an ultraviolet bathed glass tube. It was fine, crystal clear and I would not have known that it was anything other than domestic water. And, the boat's sewage in France is discharged into the canals and rivers mainly as there are very few pump out facilities despite the existence of regs that were trying to get them installed. Indeed in one port the pump out machine was installed and then on a following visit it had been removed and was chucked over a nearby wall. So, it is possible but the kit to treat the water is quite bulky and certainly the full kit wouldn't fit in the average narrowboat. Roger

  8. You are thinking of where they used to be built. The main assembly plant is now at Gaydon, Warwickshire on the same site as the ex-Rover Cars, now Jaguar Land Rover headquarters and test track. Roger

  10. Ironically enough it was a request from RN to use our emissions test dynos when I was working for Lister many moons ago (late 1998 - early 1999) that alerted me to the first threat from the RCD and caused me to get a mate involved (who had contacts in the EU Parliament) and get the original RCD eased to allow small volume use of trad engines and also to cut out the requirement for some massive wave height resistance requirement and noise drive-by testing. I was concerned about the implications for the UK canal boats and also because I was about to have a Gardner 4LK fitted to a nb of mine that was about to start build. Things have moved on from that I assume from what I gather having no longer had any involvement/interest in the topic. Roger
  11. Just a thought, I'll put a pointer here in this sub-section for any Lister-Petter people that might be interested. I'm giving away a Lister-Petter Technical Handbook if anyone is interested before it gets thrown away. Check the FS section for photos and contents. Roger
