Correction,  while out on my exercising session,  I've just seen a person wearing a face mask lol.

 

The look of pure paranoia she gave me was incredible,  she looked terrified that another person was going to pass her and she actually moved over to put more distance between us pmsl.

Ok, I checked my ps fluid level and I'm not loosing any at all, it's still bang on the max line,  where I topped it up too months ago.

 

I didn't think it was ps fluid, the smell is wrong and is engine oil.

 

Something I forgot about that happened to my old mondeo till ps fluid was mentioned was that I had the bung in the rack drain pipe come out and dump the systems fluid onto the exhaust so I know what it smells like.

 

It was very spectacular,  I was racing someone at the time and the exhaust was crazy hot,  the smoke that suddenly bellowed from my car was insane!

 

was the leading car, the person playing catchup soon backed off when he couldn’t see past his own dashboard lol.

 

The fix was easy, I wound a bolt into the pipe and clamped it with a jubilee clip and just refilled the system :)

Winding a bolt into a short length of pipe and clamping with a jubilee clip makes for a useful bung on a spout. I used that method when I had to disconnect the return on the ps fluid reservoir.... not my idea, read it on good old TF

When mine let go it dumped the fluid onto the y pipe like a pressure washer,  I guess system pressure is higher when the engine rpm are high (I was at about 6000rpm at the time) and the smoke was like nothing I'd ever seen before lol.

 

I've just been though an mot and the bloke who tested it couldn’t figure out if my leak is coming from the top down or being thrown up ether, I need to get my paws on a pressure washer and give it a clean so I can track the leak that way.

 

Need to figure out my back bumper too, it's always had a rattle from my bass and been a bit loose in the up and down direction but now I've moved from two  12's to three 12's the rattle is off the chart lol.

I'm not trying to be funny here but can you blame her? You should be enacting social distancing too and wearing a mask out in public is just common sense. It's not one rule for them and another for you, they reckon the incubation period on this virus could be up to two weeks, and you may even be asymptomatic while being fully infectious. So there's no reason to be offended or surprised by someone avoiding you and giving you a funny look if you're heading straight for them with no mask on and not even remotely interested in keeping your distance. You could have the virus and not even know it yet, and if you pass that virus on you could be directly responsible for the death of one or more other people. Surly it's better then to be paranoid than risk infection and potentially dying as a result, isn't it?

 

Besides with the number of morons ignoring and deliberately flouting the rules that have been put in place, the more people that start to properly avoid each other and wear masks and take other precautions to prevent the spread of this virus the better, and the quicker this whole mess can be cleaned up. But at this rate that isn't going to happen any time soon thanks to the idiots and those with blasé attitudes.

Nicely put, Ancienttyres! my son lives and works in Southern China and for 2 months I was able to send him PPE. Now that China is on top of the epidemic (for now) he's telling ME to be careful. This thing is real, AND it probably spreads not only from person to person but also randomly wind-born... look at how the Spanish flu pandemic spread in 1918-19 when there wasn't transatlantic travel like today.

You were doing well until you mentioned trans Atlantic travel :)

I rather suspect the US troops who brought the flu to Europe might just have sailed the Atlantic :)

Well, transatlantic kinda slipped off my finger...hows about transworld travel? If the virus can live for days on a surface, then they can blow around the globe and still be active, I'm thinking.
Just heard the breaking news about BoJo...this virus takes no hostages! Keep safe TFers!

Stop now :)

There was also a fair bit of trans world travel during the first world war :)

The difference being that it would take weeks to get to, say, Oz instead of hours. Anyone carrying the virus would have died on board ship before arriving...? 🤔
