Spent ages looking for a second hand weller 8 spoke of the right size. Failed. So for £34 I got one from paddocks delivery paid.
I shall get my new the put on that rim and it’ll be the best part of my land rover for a time.
Also got a bit knife delivered the other day, it enables one to spread hard butter into soft bread. It was a kick starter project that I bought into.
Last weekend we visited Ian in Cardiff then on Saturday I travelled on to Cornwall, stayed one night then back home via Cardiff.
Here is my location history ;
In Cornwall a few of us visited a mine shaft, tossed a few rocks down. About 4 seconds to the water. So given that 0.5 x gravity x time squared, it’s about 76m deep.
And also talked about putting an electric speedo onto the land rover to run via the Arduino.
Testing it on the lath;
This morning on the way into work it started to snow, I think it’s going to stop again soon through, not that it would be too much as fun as we’re in the Renault today. Dave sent me a great picture of Alan’s place yesterday;
Today my new skids for the helicopter turned up. I crashed while flying at Alan’s a few weeks ago and broke one ski of. It took just a few minutes to replace the skids. But after my crash last weekend I am now awaiting the arrival of a new servo.
I bought some disc brakes for my disc conversion project.
And then this afternoon I finally built a little stand, so that Tigger’s litter tray stay in the bath room, but we could also have a drawer unit there too.
Today we went to Waddesdon Manor, which is a National Trust property. The house wasn’t open, but we walked all around the grounds.
So, in a surprising turn of events (to me), I was informed that in Land Rover did not in fact fail it’s MoT, I was just being wound up. In fairness too, I never did ask in so many words if it passed or not, I just made assumed, there by making an ass of me in this instance. (To assume is to make an ass of ‘u’ and me).
So I now have a split pin, for which I could not a place to fit it, and I did look, but like Alan said, he doesn’t think there is a hole in the rod end for the split pin, I suggested just bending it around the threaded part. But I suspect I’ll just keep the pin in the dash for old time sake.
Insurance is next along with the road tax, I love taxing my Land Rover. “Why?” Because it’s free!
Below is a nice picture of Andrew driving a tractor:
Alan is putting the Land Rover in for MoT on Thursday at 4pm. I am pretty excited! This past two years and a bit is the second period of time that it has been off the road since I have owned it. So to have it back on the road will be great.
Apparently it needs a new fuel sender unit, so that’s been done today by Alan.
Fingers crossed everyone!
