  1. Only just seen this topic, not on here as often nowadays. I'd be interested in one of these if you did get around to producing them.
  2. On the plus side it looks easy to paint the chassis when required......
  3. I'm not sure how the plug pushing in did the damage, unless perhaps it somehow resulted in a sort circuit of the output. Oh well, works now and a little more knowledge for the hive mind
  4. Yep, that's yours. I should have taped the faulty mosfet to the speedo before I sent it back so you could see the size of the thing that caused all the problems. I always get the good ideas too late
  5. It's bin-ward bound so I'd just cut the wide shaft a few inches from the end, the sliding section won't be particularly long and then you'll get to see what's stopping it coming apart .... and you'll get to batter it apart before binning it I too would destroy it apart just because
  6. Anyone tried the method shown in the video around 3:36? I know they are motorcycle callipers but it's claimed the bus garage used the same technique.
  7. Just wanted to store this info somewhere, thought this would be a good place. Looked at a TD5 speedo that had been retrofitted and the fuel gauge was showing max all the time, swap out proved fault as speedo head itself. After a bit of tracing the mosfet circled in the picture was found to be faulty. An MMBF170 (sot-23 package) works as a suitable replacement. N:B if instead you are suffering with the faulty fuel warning light instead see my post at the end of this thread for the component to replace.
  8. You'd think they would have done some work to the underside whilst they were busy spending so much money on the top.......
  9. Do you mean the pyramids? Google 'painters pyramid'
  10. To be fair that is something I'm dreading ......
  11. Yeah, the pic with the Guinness shows it better
  12. I've over 70 vices (yeah sad I know) with a fair selection of those being quick release, some over 100 years old. Not come across a quick release vice half nut that ever needed more than a good clean to stop it slipping.
  13. The last one of those I just brazed back together and it's held fine, they break in that spot when they get bent if the vice is dropped. Well strictly speaking they tend to break when being straightened without heat. Is there nobody near you that can braze it up? Whereabouts in Kent?
