Diggers used in sub-zero conditions sometimes use kerosene rather than hydraulic oils

Re: Skid pan Training at Castle Combe

Fork handles? The best skid training I've done was in a Sierra on a big frame with castors. The instructor could control the lift screws remotely, to increase/reduce the contact pressure and simulate anything from wet grass to polished ice. It gave me great pleasure to run circles around many of the...

Re: To premix or not to premix, that is the question

Intake icing is most likely when the ambient is a few degrees above freezing and the humidity is high.

Re: To premix or not to premix, that is the question

I see the throttle body warming circuit has been removed, which is asking for trouble in normal British weather.

Re: To premix or not to premix, that is the question

In many US states (e.g. California) even fitting a catch tank correctly in a closed circuit is illegal. In the UK there's nothing I can find in the current MOT test that would specifically cause a fail, and I have see cars (other than 8's) with the entire breather system removed and replaced with ei...

Re: To premix or not to premix, that is the question

Some don't loop the catch can back into the intake, which should be fine unless the oil is overfilled, or the rotor side seals are leaking.

My guess is a Sohn tank for the first one.

Re: Hi, Thomas from Belgium

It's not that uncommon for the oil level switch to fail, often associated with a slight leak. If there's no sign a leak, check the switch with an ohmeter (or bulb and battery) to earth, as the other case of the light staying on can be damage to the loom - basically the sensor wire earthed.

Re: Special Edition Register additions.

The VIN numbers would be in blocks with gaps, due to the production process, but are the VINs in numerical order, if you line-up the #'s in sequence?

If so, given a VIN of an unknown # Kuro, you could pin it's # down to between nn & nn.

Re: Special Edition Register additions.

If VINs were included in the register list we could confirm if the build # was allocated sequentially, and potentially use that to identify missing numbers
