Oily Water...

04 June 2014 - 02:50 PM

Hi folks

I'm helping out my old Sea Cadet unit by cleaning up their motorboat. Unfortunately, somebody has neglected to notice the leaky fuel tank. So I'm faced with dirty bilge water - somewhere in the region of 300 litres+ of badly contaminated water...

Anyone any ideas where I can safely dispose of it?
Local recycling centre won't touch it

Fusion Bonnet Release

21 July 2013 - 10:17 PM

Hi folks,

A very good friend of mine has a a wee problem with his Fusion ('02 plate diseasal).

The bonnet release arm under the grill has snapped off - the previous owner has tried bodging it with a jubilee clip, a bit of wire and a couple of screws.

You sort have to reach under, grab it and pull it across whilst trying not to lift the bonnet too high...fine for somebody like Flat Stanley - but not real human hands!

How difficult is it to replace it?
Can he just replace the arm, or is it a whole catch change job? (By "he"I mean probably me)

I had a very quick look, but couldn't see it well enough.
