Re: Two speed tracking

Re: Pecker problems

If you want to eliminate the Q couplings, then take them out and connect the pipes directly together.

Re: Road TAX

Re: Road TAX

Yes, agreed, they tell me that DVLA are insistent on it!

Bloody ridiculous, and that table clearly shows where the mistake has been made! The big problem is that this is all sorted out via an...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

I used to run Mintex pads, the 1144’s, back when my 205s were on the road, I really rated them, but they probably never lasted long enough to de-laminate!:D

4 years is not a long time, I’d be...

Re: Geotextile Pipe Sock

150mm twin wall is going to measure circa 190-200mm OD, it’s going to be a right bitch to get the sock on it I reckon.

If not,...

Re: oil changing of translation motors

80/90 will most likely be ok. But it could be something more unusual? I have no idea about your machine specifically.

One of my final drives has 30W mineral engine oil in it! Bizarre....
