Re: Hallo from me

It's Quinn - I had a long think and came to the conclusion that
there's quite a lot of history/baggage under that name, some good
but some not so good, so I've decided on a fresh start...

...no more posting daft, unfathomable threads after a few drinks
at 11:30 at night...can't anyway...my PC is well and truly up a
gum tree and will be for quite a while so I can only see the site at work...so...as Morrissey once claimed...

"The Quinn is dead!!"

Re: Hallo from me

Quinn, you have lost the plot ... I say this in a nice way
[... if that's possible ]

So are we supposed to call you SwampMonkey... bit long

Re: Hallo from me

Hi Kurz...just to update you...I don't mind if people still call
me Quinn at all...but I'm gonna stop with this persona
for now...I'm having a bit of fun with it and...anyway everybody
knows who I am...so there's no big secret

...probably will go back to the old one eventually

Re: Hallo from me

Welcome back SwampMonkey/Quinn/Frankenstein.

Are you any closer to getting your 155 back on the road yet?

...'fraid not yet Roswell...could do with it too at the moment as
sitting on hot stuffy buses in this weather is half killing me

...am hoping to take out a loan at some point as the 155 needs a bit
doing to it plus there's the insurance

Re: Hallo from me

Chris...didn't go to work yesterday so I couldn't reply
(had to stay in and wait for an emergency plumber to fix
my leaky boiler)

...anyway...the 155...firstly I've got to get it through an MOT
(so I've got to insure for a minimum of a week so I can drive it to the MOT)

...now it should pass that apart from the back tyre tread and emissions (I know it'll fail that 'cos it does every year, so that'll be a 50 squid system flush )

...but it's that time when the variator and cam belt need changing
(am reluctant to drive it too far until that's done)

...also there is a bizarre rumbling/grinding noise coming from beneath
the bonnet, which increases and decreases depending on speed...
...and I got the foggiest what that is

Life's an elevator - it goes up and down
