sometimes


I like land rover.

Disco wheel bearings and seals all the same, front or rear. Handy, as I had
a rear one fail and the 2 I got in as spares a bit back for a front one did
the job nicely.

Then sometimes...It takes you ages just to get to one bolt so you can tension the bloody fan belt on a
non serpantine RRC!!

Sometimes the urganomics (sp?) are shitty too!! Even getting the key in the ignition in a RRC is hard
enough after a new/modern car! It is in the worst postion i can think of!

For what you were describing I think your spelling is more demonstrative.

Nor me - that's why my Landrover lives in the driveway. :-)

Oh, had that too - but it were my fault for having lost the appropriate
socket.

The brake calipers are held on by those irritating bolts with 13mm 12-point
heads. On the front ones, you need a long-reach socket to get onto 'em, and
this I have, bought specially for the purpose. Naturally, on the back
calipers, the long socket means you can't get a handle on it 'cos the
spring's in the way. So I had to go and buy a 13mm short 12-point (most of
my sockets are single hex) for the purpose.

Whilst ergonomics is the correct spelling, urganomics makes a lot of bloody
sense too .. It's similar to some of the noises I make when working on the
Landie ...
