fuel filter

In between things I've replaced the blocked fuel filter on sharky which is behind the bumper and will be installing the charged battery to try to start her up after putting some fresh fuel into the gas tank which was nearly empty.

Is this the 928 Porsche? Well done! Tell us how you determined the fuel filter was blocked - were there a number of troubleshooting processes to determine this?

^ Kept cutting out after a few seconds starting it so got the new filter kl22 and runs ok now, it needed a few minutes turning over on the starter before the system pressurised,thats why I made sure the battery was fully charged. Plenty more jobs need doing starting with a good clean.

Yes,there's still the dash to remove to check/repair the wiring and of course the rear mounted auto box to adjust for reverse to engage.

Much to do; is the Porsche an automatic transmission or a manual? You cannot access reverse at this point - that is difficult!

They say : "Trouble in Paradise at Mercedes" Hamilton and Bottas can't walk through the same door anymore .
No further explanation about the whole situation ..But "RUZIE" means "FIGHT" in English !

So my first thought is that there is a discrepancy with team orders and equipment amongst other things, the song remains the same then..and Toto's constant favouring of Hamilton.
*Just to add that Bottas has said Vettel won't be in Merc in '21.

As Max says let them do the talking on the track, which is a fair response.

My friend - thank you for the clarity; is the kickdown when it downshifts to a lower gear when the accelerator is depressed a bit??

That's right, another cable comes into play and automatically changes down when throttle is floored. No throttle sensors then just throttle cables.

Yeah my friend . I heard that as well
According the latest of VET :
He said , I will "NOT" listen to Binotto for his team orders in this season ...
Actually I'm ready for revenge ...

If you ask me , that sounds very promising !
