    Making a point.

    The chevvy got tugged to the levy. Those yank trucks can pull some serious weight, there are loads of video's on youtube. The one giving the tug will more than likely be running a 6.9 Cummins turbo diesel.

    ID for over 18's

    A provisional licence or passport is all that most people will take on the doors. We all had NUS cards stating we were 18 when I was 16/17....nowhere really takes them now.

    If it is for your CDI and you have no DPF, you would be better going for the diesel specific "Mobil One TD" rather than the new life. It is only about £29 in Costco for 5ltr.

    Plug (bath, not bash street...)

    Unless you can find one on eBay or similar, it will probably be easier just to replace the waste connection on the bath with a new one.

    Oil filter wrench - Recommendations W203 C270

    You can get the tool from Halfords, IIRC they are made by Laser tools. If you have a mate with a trade card take him down. I would be using 0w-40 Turbo Diesel rather than new life. Costco are cheaper at around £28 for 5 litres.

    Coolant Flush

    You need to also remember to remove the drain on the block. I flush the circuit both ways including rad etc. MB do actually sell a special cooling system flush.

    Garage floor Interlocking Tiles

    Have you considered something like THIS. Costco do it for £130 + VAT. It looks like the ally chequer plate but is a grey hard wearing plastic. I have it in my workshop and store and will be putting it in my garage I am currently building. Maybe worth a look.

    Making Drain Bolt for ATF Change 722..6 (One for BlackC55?)

    I had kind of guessed that the head needed drilling to fit what looks an airline PCL type male fitting. However, in the picture of it draining, the banjo bolt is clamping the cooler pipe to the gearbox casing.....this is the bit I don't understand. Esentialy it looks like it has been "Teed"...

    Making Drain Bolt for ATF Change 722..6 (One for BlackC55?)

    Thats my point. I am struggling to understand how it drains with the cooler pipe AND hose connected to it.
