    i mean while driving - basically is has roller bearings that run along a metal channel - a bit like a sofa bed and there's a few mm's play which lets it rattle - i will maybe try to fit a thin plastic strip on the runners to take up the slack when i get round to it.
     
  3. :lol: This is fun, more trouble and quirks than a T2. :D

    i always used 10/40 semi synth in mine - tried 15/40 one time just to see what happened - it still worked.
