Yep - YouTube or Vimeo work fine.
No embedding with Vimeo though.

Looking lovely on that photo Davie, is that your old house?

Yes Peter, that is my old house that had to go when my marriage went. Still miss that house, but it would be far too big for me now so better off where I am now.

Looks a nice place Davie :)

My acid test of a house is the size of the garage(s) and how may cars can be parked at the house off-road ;)

For those interested here are the vids

As it was



VVT solenoid unplugged, pretty much the same!



And the old car, how it should be even with 190K on the clock!

Its used to the cold in northern scotland, and is now too hot so gets breathless and has to slow down.

That's an interesting looking device Peter...

I guess it's an electrovalve and oil pressure is used to activate the VVT?

Update! I was hoping to do another video 0-60, but not had a chance. Having driven it around for a bit now I can say that it does feel like a VTS should, but it's not so much how well it goes now, more how it kept feeling flat before-if you see what I mean!

Old one was a bit of a pig to get out due to access
Came out with a bit of help from some waterpump pliers (never been used on any waterpump)
