I gave up trying to undo the crank pulley bolt and put it all back together, I'll have to take it to a garage for them to do it, I just have to find someone now tho.

Whilst sat waiting to find a parking place at a nearby supermarket , I felt the rear of the car give a little nudge ? Looking in the mirror to check if someone had bumped me but no one was there ! As I moved I heard the occasional knock from the exhaust so I pulled in to see the strap had given up causing the box to fall.

Once home , on my cold windy drive , I managed to fit a strap that I had started to make earlier this year as an experiment but I had to improvise it's fitting by using a couple of jubilee clips to attach it at the top but we are good to go until the spring I hope.

Re-wired my number plate lights at all the wiring had gone rotten and the lights had stopped working. Only had MOT 6 days ago too and they were working then.

Popped up to Leeds at HarryM1BYT's amazing invitation, to be supervised whilst changing my handbrake compensator for one of his modified ones he still had. The supervisor soon became supervising assistant as he didn't have all day!😬 Handbrake now locks the back wheels with little effort (not that I need it to..).

Thanks Harry - a great guy who was the original inventor of the compensator mod and who generously gave his time and effort to forum members over the years supplying them free of charge. (He no longer produces them.)



Dougie.

You were welcome - all I really did was watch and point in the right direction. Wendy sends her regards..

Fix a poor handbrake; DIY ABS diagnostic unit; Loan of the spanner needed to change the CDT belts; free OBD diagnostics +MAF; Correct Bosch MAF cheap; DVB-T install in an ex-hi-line system; DD install with a HK amp; FBH servicing.

I've taken a vow of poverty. To annoy me, send money.

Booked the ZT in for a full stainless exhaust system in January. No idea on tailpipe design yet but going for a mid sound as while i enjoy a loud exhaust this is also the long haul family car when holidays come and the last two cars which were a bit loud tbh, were not appreciated by the better half at times lol

After the storms, rain and snow the ZT-T was covered in pine needles.

Checked the plenum drains and all good but gave a rod through anyway. While doing it discovered a couple of extra jobs. One was spare wheel cavity damp; I've done my searches on here and will do as soon as I can.

Decided to go to shopping today and wouldn't you know it JBR2 wouldn't start. Did a few things to narrow it down and it isn't getting fuel. Checked the ECU for water, nothing. Started the engine with carb cleaner and it was running fine so got it down to fuel pump.

Lost the light at this point so first thing in the morning I'll check the fuse but I suspect I'm changing the pump this weekend. Perfect weather for it too ❄️🌨️😰🤧
