  5. Thanks everyone for a super chilled weekend! :) I got home about 8pm yesterday.

    I didn't do anything to our van other than make the water pump switch work, but it was good to have a chat and a few beers.
    On the way home had a few squeaking/squealing noises at low speeds (like crawling through the jam on the M1 south). Wheel bearings perhaps?

    I shall dig some out for you ;)


    @zed, that sounds a bit cruise control to me! And a bit scary! Were you praying for no sudden traffic jam?
     
  8. Excellent - thanks :)

    you were missed however @paulcalf took on the vegitarian mantle for @Ermintrude and was there for ed's usual jokes about the breakfasts/not mowing the grass etc.
     

  11. Our Charlie loves Doug & even made a loom band Doug then I believe he managed to get Doug to pay for it!

    :D

  13. Wasn't scary at all, I was just worried I'd total the engine if I took it out of gear and let it rev as high as it could. If the engine had more than 40hp it would have been! :)

  20. Back up North after a great first techenders.

    Thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome.

    Massive thanks to @Jack Tatty & @physiopro for all the guidance, help and support with changing oil and adjusting valves. I'm slightly ashamed that i've owned my bus for about 18 years and have never done oil and valves myself!

    I may have lost my jacket, i got it back from @physiopro s van, but no idea what happened to it afterwards! It is a black high gear jacket if anyone comes across it.
