So house sale fell through. We were supposed to exchange this week and buyer pulled out. No excuse. 4 months build up.

:evil:

that is so b888y unfair
come to Scotland, house sale/purchase can (I think) still be done on a hand-shake which scares the living day-lights out of solicitors.
if you agree to sell/buy the only way ou tis to find a 'loop-hole' you can't just say nae canna be bothered to sell to you , or I got a better offer!!!

sorry to hear that Mike, that's terrible after all this time. :cloud: The system really needs an overhaul, (from what I've heard the Scottish system is a much better example of how to do it).

Blimey. Front wheels, back end and drivers head all pointing in the expected direction, a rare occurrence for the Cornishman :lol:

Shame about the house sale falling through, that's just a big bummer. Have faith, the next house might be even betterer!

Good pic
The blue cones are laid down against the "inside" of the orange cones to help drivers know where to go around the course

Ummm, a few cones of all colours expired under my watch. :doh:

And I must admit, as per phil’s observation, in that picture the car is facing forwards. Mostly is was sideways or backwards. Bit like Torvill and Dean,

So when doing an efi swirlpot, is the pump supplying the pot a normal pressure one, whilst obviously the one taking to the injectors is high pressure
