    Brake / clutch fluid tester

    While regular brake/clutch fluid changes are a part of most folks servicing regime, I invested heavily in one of the testers below. On checking with new fluid and slowly adding measured water, it seems to be pretty accurate, but how long this will be is anyones guess. A simple tester...

    E10 fuel coming soon

    It looks as though E10 petrol will be at the pumps soon in the UK. Obviously not a problem for the oilers amongst us (diesels), but on various compatibility charts pre '98 Toyota engines are not included as being ok. Whether this is down to seals being affected by the extra ethanol or other...

    Dehumidifier

    After much umming and aahing I decided to lash out on a dehumidifier to use in the house (old, stone built) as the windows (d/g) were getting a bit of condensation on a cold morning. It did the trick, sucked out a couple of litres from the air and the rooms involved felt better to be in. I...

    Speed and stopping

    Interesting (well I thought so) chart on stopping distances. Overcoming kinetic energy and thinking distance means that the speed of impact does not directly correspond to road speed before braking.

    Popped along this yesterday, west to east. Not as bad as the Glass pics of a few years back, but still a fair bit of water damage with quite deep ruts in places, drop down to the chapel in poor state. Nice run though, topped off with a take away from the Shapla Tandoori in Lampeter on the way...

    CVJ boot clips

    Only a small thing, but I've had a couple of the original small end boot clips not gripping properly. Could just be me, but might be worth checking as one boot had a bit of water in it. I've regreased the CVJ (which seemed ok) and put new clips on.
