Hey up
you haven't see the mod to my injector puller / slide hammer
incorporating the fork style puller and the internal and external threads on an injector, you wont find one of these on the Klann web site

Hi Kevin..
Actually I did see and read the whole thread.. I was very impressed with the thought processes you employ.. Joking apart, it was the engineering skills and problem solving genius such as yours that actually did make this country great.. Once upon a time it was bred into our society..
Now it is all but extinct and I predict we are set to pay the price..
You would have been good in the Roman times I reckon..
I better shut up cos its an issue I feel strongly about and I am aware its not everyones view point..
Pity I don't live nearer to you mate cos I would love to see your workshop..
All the best,
S.

P.S I just noticed you're virtually a neighbour... Where in Lancashire are you?

I think that this idiot in kirkham 124 works is bad enough to have a sticky on the forum advising members not to go there.

He has generated more bad work post than anyone else that I have heard of,,he is not an MB engineer and never will be

You should at least consider getting in touch with trading standards mate

In general terms you do make a very good point as we as a nation just seem to 'bite the bullet' and move on. However on the opposite side of that coin there are those who just complain over nothing and always seem to get their way, such as solicitors, accountants, doctors, teachers and the worst of all are those in the acting profession "Do you know who I am?...." "no, but I bet you are going to tell me..."

That is a joke as well,,124 paid out thousands to members who's cars he has wrecked, the complaints of scratched wings oil all over the carpets were 10 fold 3 cars were to be no more, and are filling his back yard to let folk think that he is busy,,He should go back to being a postman

Now then Fred Dibnah & Workshop, I beginning to think you already know me as I've been called Fred Dibnah when were having a laugh at work :) the lads are intrigued as to what goes on in the bat cave.
My workshop is at home its not my full time job more of a hobby but I can tackle most engineering aspects
