For crying out loud Adrian - get that tailgate finished will you?

Spoke to one of our East Anglian resident GMC experts up here today (man and boy) and he say's its pretty unusual for a GMC to have little ends knocking....so keep your options open.

Dont know if thats good news or bad!!!!! Cubed is usually pretty good at diagnosing but as you say, keep options open. He has discovered a chap fairly locally who can supply parts.

shut up ,shut up please! one mention of a GMC with a slight head cold and my Diamond T comes up with man-flu.

The lift pump is playing up , 4 little 3/8 nuts, 2 of which are so close to the bottom plate you can`t get a socket or a spanner on them means i had to take the fuel injection pump off.

I ain`t doing that again so the planned pump overhaul has been brought forward 6 months.

morals of this story are; just because it says Rolls Royce doesn`t mean it`s any easier to work on than a robin reliant.

Big hands don`t fit into little gaps.

Swearing at it and looking at it hoping it will miraculously fix itself doesn`t work.

If one of your trucks breaks down don`t let the others know or they come out in sympathy for it.

It`s all in hands of Colchester Fuel injection for now.

knock it off with them negative waves moriarity, we`ll be there¬!

Man flu is a figment of its imagination. Give it a hard kick and tell it to 'man up' !!!!

 

Only joking! Sorry to hear the truck is poorly, hope its all sorted asap. :)

Already tried that, i swore at it and said "if you won`t behave then bugger off so i can get a scammell in the shed"

next nut, the spanner slipped and she drew blood, (mine of course).

i swear these bloody things are human,

if i stick a trailer on the back it drives like a dream, take it off and it`s like a stallion on viagra.

Mention a scammell or a DUKW and there are tears (normally of gear oil)

Mention that her widest point is her back end and she goes absolutely loopy, give her a slap and she loves it.

Hang on, am i still on the right forum????????

 

more positive waves man.

Fantastic.............. Owing to a complete shut down at colchester fuel injection, the Diamond T now requires a different mix of fuel not used since the V2 last flew, approximate costs for the weekend are £20,000,

Please send the cheque to the usual address.
