We've had rain now for weeks and weeks here in the UK. I would really
appreciate a few days of sunlight - I never tire of sun, but I think I'll
have to wait until I return to North Africa for guranteed sun...
Apparently they've had heatwaves in parts of Europe, and many people have
been suffering in the heat.

And I'm constantly reminded that I "really ought to learn some French"
they're right of course...- you'd be fine speaking french in Nord Afrique,
naturally - unfortunartely I have to ensure that any guide I hire speaks
french - anglais? non. Every guide I've come across speaks french! so am
thinking "maybe time to learn conversational french" I last learnt french
when I was 16...
Cheers

Learning the French is not hard, you must first abonner to some TV chaines
that come from France then you must watch the films in French. This is how I
learn English with DVD movies in the two langues. Now I have work to
translate English, some happy history no?

Hi Benoit,
Coming from a French man!! I thought I would improve my French
travelling with a French family around Morocco, but they all spoke
perfect English and preferred to practice their English than speak
Fench :-(
Just to help you and others with your posts here, here is a list of
the English words in on the LC Drive train for the front wheels:
You have the Wheel,
it is bolted to the Hub,
in the hub are two Wheel Bearings
that are on the Stub Axle
held in place by the Hub Nuts and a Star washer.
The Hub also has the Brake Disk attached.
When you put your foot on the Brake Pedal the Master Cylinder creates
pressure in the Brake Fluid pushing the Pistons in the Brake Calliper,
that in turn push the Brake Pads against the Brake Disk.
The Stub Axle is attached to the Steering Knuckle.
In the Steering Knuckle you have the CV (in the US they call it a
Birfield, but in England it is called a Constant Velocity joint).
The CV is attached to the Hub via an End Plate.
The Steering Knuckle is attached to the Axle Tube Yolk (commontly know
as the Ball or Bell End) on the end of the Axle by two Swivel Bearings,
one at the top and one at the bottom.
The steering moves the Knuckle using a Drag Link from the Steering Box
to a Steering Knuckle Arm on one Knuckle and then a Tie Rod connects
that Steering Knuckle to the one on the other side.
Power goes to the CV from the Differential (in the middle of the axle)
via a Halfshaft.
Power gets to the Differential from the Transfer Case via a Propeller
(Prop) Shaft that has a Universal Joint (UJ) at either end.
In most case the different shafts have Splines on the end.
Well that is the basics, probably should have been in reverse order,
but should help you on the way.
I might try to find a good diagram and label it to put on the website.

Hi Julian,
Good English primer for the mechanically and linguistically challenged!
Not trying to be a spelling stickler, the Axle Tube ends with a Yoke,
Yolk being the yellow part of the egg.

When I was very much younger than I am now I learnt Yiddish from my father
and from TV stations and programmes, who also made sure I was kept
bi-lingual in German until I was at least 13. Indeed, we never spoke
English in the family until I was halfway through school. We had a few
Polish Jews for relatives as well as Germans! but no French relatives.
When I learnt 'Business French' it was at college. So I guess it wouldn't
be that difficult to relearn French.
Ciao
