Yep I'd have a field day too, if I went. The last time I went to Sedgefield was a long time ago to the car boot sale, the days when you had plenty of private sellers, not traders.

Thats on the other side of the motorway, you have to go through Sedgefield village to get to George Bolams unless you carry on down the motoway close to the A1M entrance.

Had what was supposed to be a 10-15 minute meeting this morning with someone about some road layout. An hour later and we're getting nowhere. Then someone else comes and collars me. Another half an hour. One bloke was so visibly upset that he was shaking. The other was telling me how to do my job.

Deep joy.

Mate asked me if I'd order him some parts for his van, he has a Peugeot Expert, he wanted new door lock barrels, side Sliding door handle and sliding door guide female part that goes in the door pillar, I ordered all the parts from ebay, anyway gets message a day later sorry we have no stock so we have refunded, so found another and again day later we have no stock so we have refunded, got sick of this so rang the dealer couldn't believe the price it was only £3.36 so bought it from the dealer.

So while I was out I popped to Yarm were I bought a McCullough petrol strimmer, A Partner petrol Chainsaw and a Mac Allister petrol hedge trimmer block wanted £45 offered him £30 got a message back saying no I'll take £40, then got another message saying I'm selling for my dad here's his number give him a ring so I texted him and said will you take £35 and I can call in the next hour, he replied with yes OK here's my address, so went to Stockton to the Peugeot dealer then on to Yarm.

So Andy add these to my collection 3 petrol tools for £35, £11.66 each cant fall off.

Another tablet resurrected.

Two cracks right across the middle of the touch screen.

90459


Brand new but the owner broke it getting it out of the box. (I think they dropped it).

Very, very fiddly arrangement for the screen cable because it wraps underneath the main board so there is virtually no slack to plug it in.

90460


Got to solder the microphone wires back on too because they fell off when I popped that back off but I need my magnifying glass to do that.
90461



The microphone is the tiny round black thing taped to the broken screen in the first photo. I can only just see the two contacts where the wires have to go back on to.

Took Brother to have a look at this Fiesta, according to the MOT advisory's of Coolant Leak, Oil Leak and Exhaust Leak all very slight, now it was MOT'd before engine change, I found the oil leak at the top of the engine (But why does it still have a leak after the engine replaced), well there was oil at the top of the engine on the left hand side there was a few spot of spatter of really black oil on the bulk and the Master Cylinder, it looked like somebody had knocked a hole through timind belt cover and the oil that was coming out was thick and black.

Question.........

How quick would fresh oil take to turn black, the oil and filter were supposedly changed when the engine was swapped out August 2019, so within 4 month it is black

Finally managed to get the right hand side engine cover off of the bike. Only had to drill one head completely off of one of the bolts in the end, used stud extractors for the rest and with a bit of fiddling they came out eventually.....

Now I have to remove the clutch to get to the disc valve cover and crank seal :cry:
