Quick way to kill your car? - Gen
Was looking for some tools on ebay, and came accross this for sale:

cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2408...=

And that doesn't sound sensible (even) to me...think I'll stick with the hand pump...

Ohmigod. Well it's certainly the most original way of wrecking your catalytic convertor that I've heard of...

If you bid for the syphon for sucking the engine oil out through the dipstick tube as well, you could do a really good job !

I've always wondered about these tyre and air-bed pumps run off the sparkplug hole. Doesn't it fill the tyre etc with explosive mixture?!!!

:) Accidentally dropping cigarettes on the old airbed would become a whole new ballgame...

I wonder if the vendor has misunderstood the purpose of this device? He says there are no instructions. I remember reading something about pressurising cylinders via the spark plug hole, to find the reason for low compression. If air hisses out of the inlet or exhaust manifold, you've got a valve seating problem. If it comes out of the oil filler cap, the problem is pistons/rings. Bubbles in the coolant? That'll be the head gasket.

In which case, perhaps I should bid for it, before anyone else realises what a useful piece of kit it is.....

A blow out would be fun then.

Back in the distant past circa 1970s I recall an item in a Car Mechanics type magazine.
Reader had tried everything in the book to cure a consistent pinking. Eventually took the cylinder head off and discovered one piston with lots of small round dents in it with a sad little ballbearing hiding there too.
You guessed - too much suck and not enough blow did not kill the car but ended the life of said motoring aid. I never did find out the end of the story. Perhaps somewhere over a hedge a future generation will mull over what it is they have found.
