Isambard is an unknown quantity at this point
Last weekend I changed the inner and outer tie rods. Had to guess the positions of the new ones as both sides were seized.

Anyway, today I got my 4-wheel alignment done and I am amazed at my (obviously more luck than judgement!) toe readings.

BOTH sides were 33 minutes. They were out of tolerance yes, but to be the same??? And so close to tolerance..? Thats unreal! So they got adjusted to 9 minutes, bringing total toe to 18 minutes.

Rears are a good 1 degree or so out, and the guy said one side the cam bolt was at its maximum so couldn't do anything with that-the other side was seized! Oh well, just another job to add to the list when the weather imroves a bit!

Weasel will become famous soon enough
Her legs get cramps from the short trip driving during the week, (currently live <3 miles from work) so I let her stretch her legs on the weekend! "New" old house is 55 miles away, so ~220-250 highway miles every weekend.

Oil breather filter replacement

After reading that my 3.0d has one that requires servicing I replaced it today, good move it was totally clogged with oil & muck (80,000k) The new one has been resigned where it no longer has a filter and therefore
doesn't require replacement, would suggest anyone with a diesel do the same to avoid potential seal problems.
