  3. Personally i'd put the filter " between the tank & the pump " , rather pick up any crud " before the pump / control valve / cyl " then after it's gone through everything . Dale Russell

  12. Just letting you know the intensity of the bushfires down here in Australia . This what's left of a BMW after it's been through a fire . The snaking rivers that have run away from it are what's left of the engine block . Dale Russell
  13. You know it's hot when the drop of sweat from your nose evaporates before it hit's the ground
  14. Marc , stay safe mate , first sign of that fire coming to you i'd be heading for the river . Like you I also live in a bushfire prone area , if a fire breaks out here this summer it'll make Black Saturday look like a single candle on a cake , 5 times this last year they told us here they where going to be doing fuel reductions , 4 time it was cancelled due to it was " raining " ( never heard why the 5th wasn't done ) In recent years I intended on staying , but with an ailing disabled wife I've had to make the hard choice of " leaving " at first sign of fire . Maybe one day the people in-charge will heed the advice of the local native Australians & do the " fuel reductions & do it often " like they did before the white man came to " their " country .
