      https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/store/category/8-the-polo-social-2018/ the standard rate is £21/night, this is for 2.adults & 4 children 1 car, 1 tent/caravan/motorhome, the current rate @Kelham is £25/night so you are already getting a discount and fully paid members will receive a further discount on booking up to 10 days before the event, after this the same £21/night will apply, there are some extras that will be collected at the gate £5/night for additional adults, £5/night for additional cars & £2/night for dogs
      Please do not try and book direct with Kelham as you will be charged the full £25/night and due to our PLI insurance will not be permitted to camp with the main show area, you will be in the general camping site..
      This year we are accepting bookings from the Thursday night till Sunday night, but on those days there will be nothing planned in the way of entertainment and anyone staying on those nights might be asked to assist in the putting up/dismantling of the club marquee.
      This year due to so many people "forgetting their passes" we will not be posting the passes out, they will be on the gate collection

    • As from today 1st Jan 2018 we will be updating the membership packs, unfortunately this means there will be a delay in the posting out of the new packs until all the new items have been received, hopefully all the new items should be with me by the middle of this month and I will then work as quick as possible to catch up and resume the normal weekly postings.

      That guide sleeve should be parallel, if there is a 'step' in the length of it, then it needs to be replaced. You are sure that you have put the driven plate in the correct way round - aren't you? Back to your original problem (the noise) - Always a difficult thing to diagnose without actually hearing it. Did it come on gradually, or suddenly? Could it simply be that you are being over cautious - maybe you could listen to a similar vehicle and compare the sound.   It would seem that you may have found an honest gearbox specialist - many would have sold you some expensive and perhaps, unnecessary work.   Regards

      I am struggling a bit to follow what you say, and judging by the lack of replies, so are other people. Do you know if the fuel RETURN pipe is clear of obstruction? - If you are not sure, I would suggest that you (1) disconnect the return pipe (2) remove the fuel tank cap (3) use a tyre pump (cycle tyre pump will do) to blow through the pipe back to the tank. If that pipe is clear, I would then (1) depressurise the system (2) remove the fuel pressure regulator (3) clean it and put it back. If you have had the injector out, did you check/replace the two 'O' rings (Large one at the top, small one at the bottom.- There should also be a gasket under the injector 'cover'. If the points that I have outlined do not make much sense, maybe you could send us a picture of your SPI unit, we may be able to spot if there is a problem with its assembly.   Regards
    • caretakerplus
      The valve inside the filter is only intended to open if the filter itself becomes blocked (through not being changed often enough) All that it does is bypass the filter, so the engine still gets oil, albeit unfiltered oil (which is marginally better than no oil at all.)   Sorry about not replying earlier. Regards

      Combustion chamber in head is liked by ze Germans.  If you use standard sized 122mm rods you need pistons with same compression height as HZ?   Motorbike pistons (cbr1000rr 2007- is 76mm bore I think) and custom rods?  
    • G340UTT
      Yes I have - but it’s a completely different tone to the normal parking sensor sound. Also, it makes it when radio is off
