    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    The shoes shouldn't really wear though they can come away from the backing plate i have found. Before adjusting i give the drum a good going over with a flap wheel to clean it and rough it up and the shoes a quick rub over with some coarse paper then adjust as best i can!

    Another MOT passed - woo hoo! No advisories but that a child seat was fitted.

    Annual hand brake adjustment in preparation for MOT - seems no matter how many times I do it it never stays adjusted for the full year! Feels good but proof as ever will be on the brake rollers. What i don't get is as a manual i use it ever day unlike auto's who can go one year to the next without!

    Bowel Cancer Awareness Month - please read

    We take eyes for granted though that's for sure. I'm needing stronger glasses for close up work these days and find myself doing stuff blind in so much as can't see so well in a dark wheel well or similar - distance is 20/20 and excellent but not seeing detail is really frustrating! Jam jar lenses on order :(

    m535i power steering leak

    The pump is rated at 110bar i think - pretty sure jubilee clip won't cut it! In my experience you end up chasing leaks around. Pirtek made mine up - took the old ones as templates - this was a while ago but can't see why they can't still do same?

    Is that a bloody Toyota i see in the drive? Shame on you!!! Nice work Mick, one question how well are houses insulated over there and what sort of heating is used? Are they efficient? Assume a lot of Canada is "off grid" as it were?

    Pubs shut, takeaway recommendations

    Yeh I get that you want to get yourself a Watney’s party seven!

    Can't think it would be particularly - these are the independent CAMRA type places i'm thinking of.

    Are none of the local real ale houses not doing take out? A few of ours are - you can phone up and order then collect.

    Could just be a simple wheel balance if specific speed?

    m535i power steering leak

    Top tip if you need pipe work and that is to go to someone like Pirtek. They made me new hoses far cheaper than BMW and looked pretty OE, they could reuse metal pipe bits if needed say for the steering box. On one they even included a flexible connection which made fitting sooo much easier! When i bought mine the sensors on top of the bomb weeped too if i recall.

    Petrol, and diesel sales banned by 2030!

    I don't think we can worry on that score...
