  1. A friend told me it could be the turbo seals on there way out depending on how old the tubbys are. He also told me that is normal for them to blow some oil past the seals on the turbo, but it usually happens when the turbos are getting worn out or almost in need of a rebuild. Oh well another thing to replace on the mota if they do give up

  14. My "paying" job is working for LA's dealing with revenues and benefits. In the mid to late 90's there was a move to contract out benefits to private contractors such as ITnet (now SERCO) Capita,Liberata et al the idea was that these companies would bring commercial working practices into this area of work and reduce costs and increase efficiency. In a nutshell it didnt work. They tried to cut costs as you'd expect and introduce performance based pay blah de blah. What they would do is look at the contract and concentrate on the area which brought most profit ignoring those which didnt make money...same with penalties they would weigh the cost of having to pay one penalty against the profit they could make in another area and if the profit outweighed the penalty then hey ho. Problem is in my line of work you are messing with peoples lives. If the claim for Housing Benefit is not paid then people get evicted - Period. I've also been involved in bid preperation for one of the above companies. That was an eyeopener. Bid document specifically said no offshore call centres to be used by the they were going to create another company which they would "sub contract" to with the offshore call centre.... However my experience of nearly 20 years in local government is that there is enormous wastage of money & resources largely due to middle managers empire building and then protecting said empires and senior managers embarking on personal career building schemes with no regard to the financial cost to the LA. I'd also say central government is guilty of the same from what you read about the Home Office etc.... my mini rant over
