    I've worked German shepherds in the past but haven't had one since my old dog died around 13 years ago. So, when my lad said he would like a GSD, he let me pick it for him. :)

    I wanted a dog with Czech blood lines, preferably black in colour, my preference for obedience and discipline.

    Here's the pups Dad.

    Hi Adam - Thank you - as I said I can't presently do it myself but if any member has done the job and would be willing to repeat the experience on my car I would be happy to pay them. I can't afford what the garage is asking and my only other option is to scrap it - it's on their ramp having failed the MOT so its urgent as I have to reclaim Tuesday next, April 22nd. It doesn't need to be done by then, only for me to know I have the option, and I'd be more than grateful for practical help!

    How far can you drive without an alternator belt?

    I've just started the car up to take it 30 miles for some suspension work and an MOT, the alternator belt whined, gave out a puff of smoke and snapped.

    Driven steadily how far do ya recon I'll get on a charged battery.

  • Jonniey created a new topic ' Nipples fettled n dampness seen' in the forum.
    Been down to lil lock up to do a bit of service work on Penelope, replaced all 4 nipples and gave them a good fresh greasing, while she was up in the air I put a pry bar under all ball joints and bushes, all were good exept the anti roll bar bushes and the shock absorber bushes have seen better days, but front & rear N/S shocks are damp, Now could explain why she feels floaty at 70 + mph on motorways, so my next job is replace all shocks with bush's & replace the D shape front anti roll bar bushes

    Get a second opinion and get them to show you exactly what it is this will clear any confusion and you will then be better informed as to what is required and whether you wish to tackle it or have it done. Right now your groping around in the dark and at the mercy of those who may be out to make more money from you than is really called for.

    The relay should only be energised when the oil pressure switch is reading pressure so that the HRW only works when the engine is running, my guess is the switch has stuck open allowing the relay to be on all the time.

    The quick remedy is to pop the relay but I'd be checking the oil pressure switch, especially as this can effect other systems with in the ECU.

    Congrats on the promotion and I hope Sue's problems aren't too long to resolve.

    You didn't fail the MOT, you didn't take the car...

    Thank you - I have only had it read to me - the sheet is not precise but the garage seems to think it is the subframe side rather than the hub side - which I assume to be the reason for only seeing dropping the subframe as the only solution.

    Hi John,
    Nice to see you back “missed your empirical whit and sartorial repartee”

    Plenty of S/H hub units, but you may struggle to find a new hub assembly. You could fit a S/H unit to keep you rolling then take you old unit and new bearing to be pressed somewhere in your leisure or just keep the S/H unit fitted.

    If you are going for a second hand go for a full assembly as I spent longer trying to get the ABS sensors out than pushing the bearings.
    S/H units are around the thirty pound mark and a new bearing (cassette type) vary from £12 to £25, the cheaper ones are generally Eastern European and the more expensive are SKF or Timken.
    Here is a couple of links for S/H hub assemblies on flea bay:

    www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MGTF-REAR-PASSENGER-N...TH-ABS-/111327344307

    New bearing cassettes are all the same for all wheels and also fit the MGF, Rover Metro, Maestro, Montego and Lotus Elise.
    The link below is for a Timken kit with stake nut and snap rings.

    Happy Easter,
    Brian.

    Yep, you got me.

    I forgot to disconnect the hardtop LEDs and tore the wires out when removing it.
    Now down to 112 LEDs now that the illuminated top is off.

    It lights the shed nicely though....
