Default Bit of snow...

So we had a bit of snow start of last week... would've been a shame to waste it

















Had a great late afternoon/evening driving around checking things out

Pulled a car up a hill and back home through their uncleared street, offered help a couple times but wasn't needed and finished off by Trolling up a 10⁰ sloped street near me (last couple pics) I was the only set of tyre tracks and she did it with ease ��������

Does your oil gauge not work then Rob? Wish we had snow like that here even if only one day, Hastings has some nice steep exposed roads that take a hammering when it snows and makes them a challenge, last time it was worth going out I had a bog standard T2, but nothing stopped me, would just like to try it in the Troll, Rick

It does but the sender in the TD42s has a rep for being unreliable - warning light works fine and the needle moves up as soon as you give even a little revs. Reads fine when cold, it's just as she heats up it stops registering properly. Even running at revs she'll intermittently drop sometimes then randomly come back up. Like I said, classic TD42 thing.

Weedave had the same classic sender issues I have and he's sent me a brand new OEM sender to fit but I was waiting to do that when I change the oil. She's due now but weather has been mince for streetside working and I've been busy with other things.

The OEM one now has a wee breather pipe and Dave said it sorted him right out
