Thanks Dan for the explanation.
And can we get Perite removed from this forum please...?
Not that I like to give people like this any audience whatsoever, but it's because of this forum my skill level has increased from complete and utter novice to borderline minor achievement.
Everyone is a student at some point you complete and utter "*(*JJF(£U(JFL£)KF :wink: and for your information, if you had read my post IN DEPTH, you would've noticed I had tried AND FAILED using a 1/2" socket and that I had to drill off the bolt head due to the state of it 8)
'Dan' only confirmed what I'd already told you, if you'd
read my replies correctly. (in fact you mentioned trying a 1/2" spanner and not having sufficient leverage, and that a 1/2" socket fitted perfectly)
As for asking for me to be barred; are you such an ingrate that you want someone who's helped you in the past (however you regard me, then or now) barred?. Once again, in case you didn't notice earlier in this topic, neo has already tried that. Incidentally, did neo point out that the factory fitted matrix was dangerous, and the reason for addition of the bypass valve?
Your skills are improving - good. And yes, everyone has to start somewhere. But, since earlier than the stage you've presently reached, I listen when others argue (see below) something contrary to my understanding, and interpret their explanation. Maybe you also need to work on your english comprehension. Just out of curiosity, is that collection of symbols an I.T. 'in-joke'?
Drilled off the bolt head, eh?. Was a stub left behind in the female thread of the battery tray? If so, did you manage to get this out? A suggestion, if necessary (or welcome), is to use a l/h threaded 'easy out' to unwind the remains of the bolt, or alternatively, carefully drill out the remains within a fraction of the internal diameter of the female thread and use a tap to remove the final part of the bolts' male thread.
As you may have heard, an 'argument' is "a series of connected statements, intended to establish a proposition" (and also a term in maths, I forget exactly what). What you've posted might just be described as abuse, so in fact, in terms of anyone deserving even temporary banishment, you aren't really in any position to cast the first stone. But then, with this forum, anything could happen.
Admin permitting, catch you again soon.
Have a nice day.
