One or two of those symptoms you could be tempted to ignore after some inactivity but I guess all three is pretty much conclusive.....Shame to find that now but on the bright side once the job is done she'll be good for many more miles of proper motoring.

Unlike for failure, like it is hopefully a couple days of non-intensive spannering to fix.

Today I replaced a fuse in my Disco that has been blown for over a year, it only served the ciggy lighter & sun visor lights so I'd not bothered with it.

But I had to pump up my nsr tyre today, the bloody thing has picked up a nail... Should be OK though, it's in the tread, that'll be £10 to repair from my local tyre place.

Now fixed :-)

Fuck me, you're not the sharpest tool tonight. :lol:

It was in fact a facetious comment based on your bailing out of a hand painted Landcrab. Probably your best decision of late.

Yesterday, I dropped off 4 tyres with slow punctures to Scott the tyre man. Wife's car, daughter's car, the tranny tipper and the Olds. Two had nails, the other two were leaking at the rim. All fixed.

Today I gave the Davie Broon a transmission and hydraulic oil change (it's one and the same).

The oil was an emulsified mess and the screen completely choked.
