  1. I had it apart and examined it for dry joints etc, the switch looked worn, but cleaned up nicely but that was the limit of my attempts and it made no difference. Maybe it could be repaired, but I need a clamp meter anyway for a future project and so it gave me the excuse to buy a good one
  2. Another point of interest (to me anyway) is that I have several sets of leads - including the ones that came with the 325 which are very plasticy and stiff, and some brand new modern 'silicon' ones, but the best ones I have (for being flexible and heavy) are the ones that came with the old 75. So part of it will live on
  3. After 35 years of use and abuse, my old faithful Fluke 75 gave up the ghost... I wonder if it knew that I had been browsing clamp meters recently? Anyway, thoughts of augmenting my old fluke with a cheap clampmeter soon gave way to the feeling that, out of respect, I had to replace it with another Fluke. A little research soon landed me on the Fluke 325 - here they are side by side... The king is dead - long live the king! The old Fluke 75 was proudly made in America, and I liked that (I generally like American tools), but I wondered when I ordered it, if the new one woul
  4. Excellent little rant there... You should carry on while you have the momentum
  5. made me cringe until I realised it was on your finger...
  6. So is it you assertion that anything other than a minor task can not be carried out safely? Not wishing to sound holier than thou, but realistically, if I thought that any task i was about to undertake could not be carried out safely, I would not do it...
  7. you still have to hold the nozzle...
  8. not all - COTAG 4X4 Response are impressive in their training, with all members being advance drivers, with first aid and radio ( amateur) qualification...
  9. You might need to ask for help from neighbours... Tomorrow morning I will be shopping for myself and two other households...
  10. What a fool I am - I had forgotten that!
  11. As it does in the D2, but when a single pipe burst in that, my peddle went to the floor again and again and each time it only slowed the car a bit.... Maybe the D2 ABS was faulty? but it was not showing any faults...
  12. Interesting! I didn't know that. I presume then, that when the EPB is set to whatever mode it is (can't remember) when you bed-in the pads, then that must be changed so that they DO work while rolling. I find it interesting that use of the EPB whilst rolling uses the same bake system as the normal brakes, so if you suffer some sort of catastrophic brake failure in the normal brakes then you have nothing... not even throwing it into park like you could when you had a physical connection to the gearbox.... I'm not entirely sure that I am a fan of some of the 'progress' that has been ma
  13. And so it goes on - after finding that the offside shoes were devoid of friction material, I opened up the nearside drum to find loads of friction material but they have been oiled (or greased) ie The shoes were heavily contaminated, but there was nowhere that the contamination could have come from... Must have been a right cowboy outfit that 'maintained' that car! Anyway, the D4 now has nice new shoes and drum/discs, and all I need to do tonight is degrease everything, remount the new disc/drums and pads and do the adjusting and bedding in process... That mak
  14. No - I got it from Spalding...
