Tom,
the better looking one and I will undoubtedly be going up to Burton on

next weekend now that she has had her hip operation.
Opened the web link and it took her about 3 seconds to say "yes please".
How do you get your info on country music venues?

Re: [MH-list] Talbot Express - radiator replacement THANKS

Peter Moore <popshome@...>
 

Thanks for all the replies.

Have found a radiator specialist who can supply new for £90 if they can't
fix the old and my local garage will fit for £50!

Looks like the main dealer has lost a customer.

cheers,

Pete

Take a cable connector block, ("chocolate block"), and cut the plastic off
to reveal the small metal tube with two grub screws in. (This little
lifesaver can be used for joining all sorts of broken cables). In your case
obtain a short length of bowden cable, (eg. old bike brake cable), loop
round fuel inj pump lever ball and anchor both ends of loop in one end of
connector tube. Connect throttle cable to t'other end of connector.

Ok I am in trouble now.

peugot parts ordering system has crashed and will not be up until the

At the weekend the plastic connector that connects the end of the

back for a re-test but will fail without this small £1.50 pence part.

Breakers yards have produced no joy as its not worth their while

and were very terse anyway and citroen were the same and I am at a

Re Butane regulator pressure gauge

Mark Williams <Mark@...>
 


Otherwise, shake the bottle? :-)
Or weigh it:)

All bottles should have a full and empty weight stamped on them
somewhere. I use a fish scales (spring scale) to weigh mine.

Maybe someone could invent a scale that sits under the bottle. You
tell the scale the full and empty weights and it warns you when you
are getting low and gives you a bar graph of the the amount of gas
left. Of course this would only work when stationary.

Maybe that's the route to my first million:)

--------------

Not wishing to do you out of your first million but, Truma market such a
device,
the Sonatic with a remote readout inside the van, there not cheap though &
they
only fit certain cylinders.

I have only ever fitted two of them some years ago, they don't seem that
popular.

I'll sit on the fence here and agree with you both. Iain appears to

very good thing and all to his credit, as helping one another is what

Plain speaking can often come across as plain rudeness, and in the

I have read all the technical debate about GPS, handhelds,

voice
directions or the view of the map while I am driving. I get lost
sometimes but so what. There are road signs, maps and the

I have a fairly good sense of direction, unlike my wife. If I spent

be a wonderful thing to have but these are the places I geneally

Does anyone else feel the same or I am a lone Luddite.
Safe travelling!
Chris
I'm not sure you're a luddite (didn't they bust up machinery?) but
you are adventurous! For me, one of the greatest benefits of SatNav
is avoiding areas I don't want to be. Narrow roads in the motorhome
or less salubrious areas of some of our cities.
First of all I'm going to declare an interest because I'm talking
about something I sell.
For those who already have a laptop computer you should consider a PC
based package. Navigator gives you street level mapping for the whole
of Europe, all the UK full 7 character postcodes, visual and audible
directions, automatic recalc of the route if you leave the planned
route, map rotation in the direction of travel and a wealth of other
features. None of this is revolutionary but it is affordable. We sell
Navigator bundled with a GPS mouse at £110 for GB & Ireland and
£125
for Europe (including GB & Ireland). Software is updated free of
charge and the latest maps are available for a small fee.
I always start it before setting off even if I ignore it. Like most
people I can probably find my way to most areas and there are times
when I know a better route. But it's when I DON'T know where I'm
going that it is priceless. It really is fabulous having an A-Z of
every village, town and city available. Last year I had to go to
Maximillianstrasse in Munich. It took us unerringly from Venlo to the
door.

If anyone would like to see it I'm going to be exhibiting at Malvern
and Peterborough shows.

On another note, GPS isn't always the best idea for terrain as it
encourages straight line navigation. Not a great idea if you don't
know what's ahead of you! I remember one exercise a few years ago
when we were first issued with Trimble GPS. One group banged in the
target coordinates and away they went. Unfortunately the target was
just on the other side of a very deep and fast flowing river! Had a
very long walk to find somewhere to cross.

Re: [MH-list] Talbot Express - radiator replacement

Simon Whitehead
 

Depending on the state of the rest of the radiator, it is often
possible to get the rad re-cored. This is usually MUCH cheaper than
buying a full replacement.
If you cannot do this then try to find a replacement from a third party
manufacturer. Companies like PartService often supply this sort of
thing.
Another possibility is to try Fiat or Citreon. Their equivalent vehicles were amazingly similar. Fiat parts are usually a lot cheaper
than Peugeot.

Looks like the radiator has had it. Anybody had experience of

one or any advice as to best place to have it done.

Living in Gloucester and the main agents want £250 +VAT for the
radiator alone!
