Heating question - domestic

One pump for 18 radiators doesn’t sound enough off the top of my head? I think they come in differing flow rates so might be worth looking at the one you’ve got as it might suggest a maximum length. Running on the theory that the water will take the path of least resistance it will flow through the ...

Hesitation at low revs

I don’t have much faith in the eBay compatability charts personally..as they probably say there are NO leads which fit an 8v Calibra..

Hesitation at low revs

A quick google found these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ignition-Cab ... 3696943298 which gives you a Bosch number and also some Opel numbers to check with - do they look the same?

I looked for an Astra GTE Mk2 2.0 8v which I think is the same engine?

Hesitation at low revs

The tubes are heat shields to stop the leads degrading from heat. Materials for leads (from the likes of Magnecor etc) might be better nowadays? The alternative is make a set up, reusing the tubes?

SAE or DIN brake master cylinder flares?

The pipe is generally only available in a common size from what I recall? 5mm or 3/16". Personal preference is for Kunifer (Cupro-Nickel) although many will tell you "just" copper will be fine. One is harder to form bends but stronger. The other can work harden and crack more readily. You can probab...

SAE or DIN brake master cylinder flares?

I've always known them as single or double flare to be honest - generally single when entering a component (cylinder/caliper) and double when joining to a flexible hose. 99% of kits will do both. For a 6a, I think it's almost all metric - the exception being the tee on the axle IIRC? An imperial (3/...

Blurred photo bucket

I’m guessing your device thinks it’s being clever and that the first letter of the first word in a sentence is a capital letter (true - generally). At a point in the entry, the “username/password” bit of text handling comes in and takes over, hence why you can still login. One of mine does the same ...

Cable rating - domestic

What's your upstream breaker (on your consumer unit) for this circuit - 16A or 32A? 2.5mm will just about do the job (depending on how it's buried - direct, in pipe/conduit or an open trench), but if going to the trouble of putting a cable in then put 4mm as there's nothing worse than volt drop issu...

There are the occasional services north of Exeter (the wild north as you'd call it) which do have an establishment (trailer) selling (supposed) genuine Cornish goods. Please let us know the Cornish exchange rate as the prices they charge there must be some sort of conversion chart to English prices?...

Finally the strip down has started.. 8AA5F424-A651-453C-9531-9CECC57769AD.jpeg Not bad going for a couple of lazy hours this afternoon but at least I can get to the other bits easier now.
