Hi the new meet could be interesting I may go to that if the weather is reasonable see how the wealthy live around their any way apart from that a word of warning .....make sure the part will fit .....
on Thursday a chap turned up at my workshop in a Mitsubishi 4x4 considerably pead of as the engine kept cutting out so could I fix the problem well after my interrogation of the events I targeted a fuel problem and the need for a new fuel filter he agreed and ask could I do the job that evening and he would call back around nine or the next morning I said I could do that he went away and left me to if. I moved the vehicle to the work shop entrance in the door way removing various parts to get at the filter buried on the bulk head after considerable difficulties disconnecting several sensors plugs I removed the filter what a sight the filter looked as covered in black sticky grease probably the worst I have ever seen Out of many I have changed.
so to my stores and select a filter to fit undo the box io dear the wrong filter it should be correct according to the part number now I’m in trouble can’t fit the filter can’t start the engine vehicle stuck in the door way can’t shut the doors and it’s now about eight starting to get dark very soon , well something had to be done leaving the doors open all night would have invited a mass clearance my equipment etc I tried to push the vehicle about two and a half ton no that did not work called the wife explained my delirium she asked what I thought she could do about it um help me not happy she was in fact cocking dinner any way she did come and was not very complementary to the parts supplies well we pushed the vehicle to the ramp run up but that was it still can’t shut the doors inspirational comes to mind can I find the old turfer winch I have somewhere if I can it would pull it up onto the ramp this is a manual leaver operated winch it does the job but not without considerable effort by the operator well after a lot of pushing and pulling of the leaver the vehicle was on the ramp now the only problem was I needed resuscitation and rest now my wife reminded me the time was near ten pm now shut up lock up put the alarms on and go home, what a job so always make sure the part fits before you take the vehicle to bits
