    Feel for you. Not knowing is the worst when it comes to a loved ones health. And it feels at times docs are guessing. Yeah, can't believe that I've been here for 13 years!!!! And yep Towe001, was on Oldcorollas before this. Making me feel old......

    Sucks that rehab wasnt closer than 2.5 hours away...... She is handling most of rehab well. Still nauseous and balance is an issue atm, but I'll take that over what it was like last month.

    MRI wasnt good. Blood vessels in the brain spasming. Bed ridden and back on drip again. But, the level of vacuum applied to her head drain has now been reduced, so she must be improving much less blood in discharge now. Just need to kill the headaches.....

    Time of year sucks. Waiting on an MRI but wont be until Thursday when they start operating again. Missus or really starting to get pissed off just lying around. Doesnt understand why she needs to. Ps. Big G was one of our sons basketball nick names.....

    Thanks for the support guys. Really appreciate it. Makes it a little easier. Still blood present in the brain drain and testing isn't showing source. She is about sick of hospital and laying around. Was able to talk to her this afternoon which was an improvement

    Thanks for the link. Already have the reimbursement form to fill out. Lucky we are getting a huge amount of support from home from child minding through to work lending me a more economical car to drive. The town of Maryborough has been incredible with their support.

    Yeah, can't complain about the treatment. $$$$ for parking and accommodation are another story......

    Sitting in the Alfred watching my missus recovering from a severe brain bleed.....testing doesnt show the source. Sucks - youngish (47), non drinker, non smoker, fit, health eater....... Just gotta wait and see if she comes back. Shitty Christmas for the kids. Wish it was me instead.

    SR20DET ke70 question.

    Yeah, early Astra's have an electric power steer pump which is not computer controlled, so easy to use. I'm also in the drive it and see camp. Used to run 235's on the front of my HZ ute without power steer and it was fine. In fact I took the power steering off that car.

    Distributorless 5K Engine

    Thats what the radio is for ;) Something like that. Took it off after having to suck fuel through the line on the side of the road to re prime the pump. Got old real soon. don't know if it would work better mounted under the tank.

    Distributorless 5K Engine

    Tried a Holley Red pump once in the engine bay. Didn't like sucking much. Would stop randomly but was soooooo much quieter.

    Used "Facet" type fuel pumps on both my rollas with no issues. Had one hard mounted under the parcel shelf, but got moved very quickly. Soft mounted under boot floor in the end.
