hi jan

i am pleased you are on top of getting the batteries charged and that they are starting to show a good charge

we might even end up meeting as we are expecting to go to altwarp next summer and travel around a bit possibly Poland as well

just have to get my gall bladder removed early summer first and fingers crossed for events at the end of January and beyond 

i did look into getting dual nationality a couple of years ago but that was not possible as i should have applied before i was 21


once the batteries are fully charged will you be able to hide the lead in the hedge and connect it up overnight maybe  once a week

Looking good but 24 hours will tell, but even then you may be down on amps I think.

I Moved it back to the car park yesterday Simon, the ground is too soft to keep moving it back and forth, I will soon make a mess for other people who use it, mostly pedestrians and I don´t want to make it a mud patch. Maybe if I take it for another run it will help, maybe if it´s tested with an amp meter it might read different.
Not much can be done over the holiday either.

Ducato

Warranty: 3years/100 000 km
Service intervals:       
Diesel - Model 250     
1 year/22 500 km - Oil Change
2 years/45 000 km - Full Service

Diesel - Model 290     
1 year/24 000 km - Oil Change
2 years/48 000 km - Full Service 

    * A service plan is available as an option, please contact your nearest dealer for more information.


 This is a copy directly from Fiat’s own site. So you could argue that it needed another interim service 12 months after the 15/5/2017 one, and then another 12 months later. That would be when considering that they sell “vans” that do lots of miles. We dont do the mileage, but it’s the months that need to be considered.

Thank you Simon, Its the first time I have looked at the book properly and just wondered If they were correct saying it had missed one service.

Even with a dozen oil changes it wouldn’t have stopped the valves snapping, there must have been a manufacturing fault in the valve stems.

im old school and I know the oil nowadays is far better than the old oils( supposedly) but I still change my oil and filters at roughly 6000 miles, for what it costs I think it’s worth spending half an hour getting oily. Just my humble opinion of coarse.

Who knows what Hans did, he was no fool, he wasn't a mechanic but I often left the van with Gordon especially before a trip when he would give it the once over. If I was at home I would be able to check all the cash jobs he did and what he did, such a nuisance it's all happened so far from home.
I meant to have asked this garage when I should next have it serviced, Heike can ring tomorrow.

Providing they washed out and cleaned all the components prior to the rebuild then I would say give it an oil change at 5000 kilometres. Just in case there is any foreign matter left in the oil ways . im sure they would have given it a thorough clean, they will advise you on servicing I’m sure.

It’s a new engine and ancillaries Alan, so they need to be asked when they need to see it again. Effectively it will be a “first service” and maybe they will say 1000km and then do a new oil filter and oil. 


but, they need to be asked to ensure there’s no mistake.

Simon, the garage call it  Bei dem Motor handelt es sich um ein Austauschteil.

Translated       The engine is a replacement part.

The bill is the guarantee for each part so if something goes wrong with a part they haven´t replaced [eek]


Just had a look at the batteries. 83% AH.(Sargent told me some time ago not to pay too much attention to that.) V 12.4. L 12.5 

I did think I might take Heike for a little trip today, but we were too busy while the sun shone and when we weren't it rained.[frown]
