well this lot arrived tuesday morning ..... I wasn't up to struggling with it all, after a bad night and most of the day - were too late with me 'hamster juice' Monday evening and no activity after it, to circulate it about .. so me spleen gave me hell to remind me



slightly different unit ...



but after a 're-assuring ' conversation along the lines of - "it's the only one we've sold in years" it went into the tank -- it'd better ****ing work !!



and everything got a liberal application ....

has been a tough afternoon getting that bloody great lump of a tank back in its home under the RR and even harder getting everything back into place and re-connected ...
the filler pipe was a complete nightmare ... and took a good hour and a half to get back together ...
no room for hands or tools
..... and left a lot of my skin under there in various locations

the breather that has caused all the issues had also appeared to have been shortened, by the looks of it ... I had to extend it to get it to reach, once I'd attached it to the tank end



no way was I going to go tugging at it to try to stretch it to fit

anyway ... it was all re-assembled and dogged up ... ready for some fuel in the morning and a test for leaks .... which i hope there will be none of ... ran out of time ... had to go to meeting at 18.00

We had Clara here Tuesday ... Pam thought this was hilarious ....... and stood and watched her unwind it



She'll be bloody sorting it next time
took me ages to unravel it all

so Thursday ..... No leaks and went first flick ...... and no smell of fuel either ...... could do with a wash though



be nice to use it without worry.

Sparty has taken to disappearing at odd hours ...... found him sleeping here now, on several occasions and at all hours. .......
Getting older and dafter by the day. When the sun's out I can see why .... but not after sun down



mixing some mortar this afternoon ....... and had to look twice when I found him lying by me sand bag ... fast asleep



he's getting his old man's coat rapidly

our trip to Newport last Friday, for Pam, was 'successful' ... in that it got done ... she's sore but better than expected ..
took the dressing off Sunday morning, as per instructions ....



6 dissolve-able internals and 8 that'll come out next Friday ....
a mole she's had all her life, about 6mm across, just in front of her ear ... but quite flat ...
caught it with a comb, doing her hair several weeks ago and scalped it
.....
it promptly went berserk and when she went in on Friday, the best description I can give you is ......
imagine pushing a pencil into the side of her head and the only thing left showing was the 'rubber' ...
about 8mm dia. and a good 10mm protruding ....
was weird ....
anyway, as the dermatological consultant suspected, was deep rooted and needed quite an 'open up' to deal with.
Consultant was quite surprised at its growth in four-ish weeks
been sent off for biopsies ....
we have our fingers crossed

so ....
last day clearing, up at the farm, we got a puncy in't traccy front, which curtailed the day's scrap clearing activities a bit earlier than planned ....
BIL said he'd get it sorted .... two bloody weeks ago !!!!
... guess who had to go see to it yesterday .... !!!
not been able to organise me scrappy to come and have a pick up session, 'cos said beast is in the way.

followed this down, from chez Druid ...



must've been 11ft wide and FILLED the road -- this is a wide bit

took this after i'd stopped in a hurry .... Rangey is abs and just dealt with it .... me 8 x 4 trailer behind, with tools, toe jacks and a 49 kilo 'air bottle', running light, simply locked up and HOWLED to a halt
.... traccy driver turned to see WTF was about to run up his arse ..... big green parcel machine had to haul his mirror in - or lose it ....
anyone else'd have had an escort for that ... an' a bloody movement order

anyway... got to the farm and soon had the offending item in the air and said wheel off



after twenty minutes with a sledge and levers, t'was obvious the lil' b'stard was not gonna have it and it got slung in't trailer for a trip home to meet the 'Drema and me forks

reckon I had a good 4-5t of pressure on't bead before it surrendered ..... and discovered a surprise tube hiding in there
.... looked for all the world like a tubeless valve screwed into the very ropey rim good job I'd had the valve between the forks
Doug swore it was tubeless

inner bead wasn't quite such a bugger and soon had it in bits



good job I did .. rim was in a hell of a state and whoever had put the new tyre on hadn't bothered cleaning it, obviously ....

this was a better bit ..


after i'd hacked off about 4mm of scaley shite
hour well spent with the grinder and it was looking a bit more like it and a damned sight smoother, for a re-fit of the round black rubbery bits

patched the pin hole in the 'surprise tube' ... be damned if I could find the cause - not a mark inside the tyre and only a few minuscule particles in it
.. applied more lube, than yer average hooker'd use in a year - EVERYWHERE - and it went on, sweet as a nut
.... have had more blood, sweat and tears with a 5.20 x 10

helped a lot that the bloody thing was so heavy; it wasn't trying to escape off the bench at every effort to re-mount it
..... had visions of having to drill a hole in the middle of the bench to bolt the bloody thing down..... but nope .... one of the easiest I've ever done

going back on at least


put 10 lbs in it to seat the beads (all that lube did the trick, sweet) and dropped the forks onto it for the rest of 35 psi it needed ....



'twas going no-where with the 'Drema leaning on it

Lifted it back into the trailer ... sod grunting it about with mechanical handling to hand and we went back to re-instate it in its rightful place
Think Doug enjoyed his afternoon out, getting chauffeured about ..... not having to deal with the damned thing .. and a free lunch

Scrappy organised for the morning ... meet him in the village at ten ..... he's been to Ken's before, but can't remember HTF to get there .. be glad to see the back of an enormous pile of tish, that took a LOT of collecting together .... so that'll be a.n.other day shot to sh*t

Rude awakening .. sort of ... was dozing ... 'bout 8 this morning ... Tony, me scrappy. His first job's cancelled can he come up to the farm earlier .. like now !!!!!
.... "Gimme an hour mate ... still thinking about breakfast"

Met him in the village, with the truck, his van and his grandson for a convoy up to Ken's ...

left Tony to it on the side of the drive whilst Shane and I loaded the van with the rolled ali, from the truck body we chopped up and all other miscellaneous ali/stainless bits, plus all the 'bluey' I'd set aside as we'd been sorting.



he must've been napping 'cos we were down there 'fore he'd made a dent in it ...



he sure packs it on





but even he had to concede defeat and have a second run

all cleared and gone by two ... at last, after he'd gotten back and 'mopped up' ... surprising how full he was going off on the second trip -- pile hiding behind that tank, you can't see ....... progress, of sorts

this came damned close to getting Tony's hiab on it



the bed swings/slides and it rotates, but'll want a belt and some fannying up

these of any interest to anyone? ..... gonna chuck 'em in Brightwells otherwise ... can't be arsed to ebay 'em

Phone goes off and I'm thinking .... bloody hell is it seven already ?... ... don't seem to have been in bed an hour??
then realise the sound isn't my alarm's Tubthumping tune, but the ringtone ...
https://youtu.be/vsYrhNMZa6U

(guaranteed to wake me up)

light's already on and I'm stood there looking at the clock thinking WTF is ringing me at 2:15 ????

Look at it and it's Josh ..... ............ can only mean one thing

Granny has a new grandchild ....

9 lbs 8.5 oz at 01:45 this morning ....
OMG !!! .... he's a lumper ...... his mum is a very petite size six ....... pix of the new arrival to follow
I'm one of the few people who guessed right with 'a boy'

I am now completely wrecked ..... gone half three, 'fore granny stopped bouncing off the walls and then back up at seven for Clara's arrival

now delivered to school and might just have a few hours for a catch up .... once me drug delivery has arrived and that could be anytime 'tween nine and 11:30
