Trying an experimantal late (ish) night and a lie-in Richard, it didn't work - I was still wide awake at 5 this morningDickieG wrote:Jim,
What are you doing up at this time of night?
That's good news Jim, it's good to know you're recovering well and learned how. The biggest problem I find is keeping the discipline as no matter how hard I try, I often over-run my cut-off time. With all the added responsibilities you've taken on with the forums etc, it must be 10x more difficult for you. Good luck!CitroJim wrote:It's been a busy week and my health has continued to improve. Cutting out caffiene and stimulation late in the evening abnd sticking to a more-or-less set bed-time seems to have done the trick with my sleep. I've also stayed away from here to see if that had any bearing; hence why I've been very quiet this past week. To all those of you who have sent PMs and emails, I will reply soon. I'm just about back to my old self now
Yes Vectras do ride that badly, the old 'P' reg V6 ones were even worse and so bad that on fenland roads you needed to slow to a crawl as the car bottomed out on the slightest undulation not to mention it was physically painful to your own body, dreadful car's Vectra's they must have been designed over the phone.CitroJim wrote:Speaking of spam reminds me of Vauxhalls for some reason and on that subject, I was today out giving the V6 a shakedown and came up behind a late Vectra travelling relatively slowly. Why only became apparant when I looked closely; we were traversing a stretch of road on my test circuit which I know is very bumpy. The Vectra was all over the place and looked like a cork in a rough sea. The V6 on the other had did not even register the bumps. Do Vecras really ride that badly? If so they must be purgatory on anything other than a billiard table.
They aren't that bad to do Jim, you'll get each side done easily within a couple of hours, I know what job I'd choose between changing rear arm bearings and rebuilding an auto gearbox.CitroJim wrote:Next job is the rear arm bearings Not looking forward to that...
That's good Richard I'm pleased to hear that. All being well, I'll be doing that job this coming weekend.DickieG wrote:They aren't that bad to do Jim, you'll get each side done easily within a couple of hours.
