Autoinform LIVE returns to Scotland

Published:  20 March, 2018

Autoinform LIVE is back in Scotland over  the weekend of 14-15 April. 

Being held at Glasgow’s GTG Academy, Autoinform LIVE is once again powered by OESAA, in association with Frank Massey’s ADS. The event features three distinct training programmes, including lots of new topics and sessions, allowing attendees to book the selection best suited to their needs.   Meanwhile, Saturday night’s gala dinner at the Crowne Plaza Glasgow will feature popular comedian Dave Fulton.   Commenting on the forthcoming Scottish show, OESAA Chairman, Nigel Morgan said: “We understand that keeping up-to-date with industry developments is a challenge, so it’s gratifying to know that making Autoinform LIVE more accessible to garage owners and technicians all over the UK is so appreciated.”

The entire weekend, including all training, lunches, refreshments and a ticket to the gala dinner, costs £195 + VAT.

For further information or to book tickets, please visit the OESAA website at www.oe-suppliers.org/.

Additional gala dinner tickets for non-training partners, as well as single day tickets for the event, are available on request via Annette on 01772 201597.

  • The happy camper 

    It’s only when you visit the past that you realise how far the journey to the present has taken us. Some time ago Martin, a very good friend of mine from Londonderry, sent over a set of very early EVL Bosch injectors.

    This injector pattern started life around the late 1960s and ran through to the mid 1980s and was used by Ferrari, Volvo, Opel, and many others. The set supplied to me came out of a VW camper van, and like many from this era were badly rusting and contaminated from in-tank corrosion. At the time fuel lines and tanks were made from untreated mild steel, and filtration did not meet current standards of 5 microns, or 2 microns with the latest HDEV 6 injectors. The biggest single cause of wear and failure was water ingress in gasoline due to condensation and external ingress.

    The injectors were in a bad condition, sticking, blocked, and dribbling. I started the cleaning process with an external pre-clean ultrasonic tank before risking contamination in our ASNU bench. Several cleaning sessions later, with a varying degree of improvement, we arrived at a fully serviceable set.

    I posted them back assuming it would be the last of my involvement. I should have known better. Martin and Matthew at Conlon motors have been involved with our training programme over many years. I travel over there several times a year for onsite training, and you have guessed it, waiting for me on my last visit was the camper van.

    It was running extremely rich, blowing blue smoke. You could taste the emissions. If you have ever followed a vintage car you will know what I mean. This is where a trip down memory lane started.  I have not worked on this system for many years.  In fact it was on systems like this that our current-day diagnostic processes were developed.
