Would anyone be able to upload a copy of this to an FTP site or somewhere for me? I can provide an FTP site if needed. Everywhere I've been able to find online references the old green oval, which seems to point to a domain squatter now.

I know there is the Russian online one, I'd prefer to have a proper copy on my old laptop.

I've got a CD somewhere. I'll try to hunt it down...
PM me your FTP location and password. If I can't find the CD I'll copy it direct from my Laptop...
EDIT:
Found the .iso and the bits required to "modify" it
Awaiting ftp details...

I'm never a massive fan of uploading stuff like this to third parties. Though We Transfer is pretty good otherwise.

I wonder if the Microcat database can be extracted into something sane?

Thanks to OB and Gilbert I now have a couple of versions :)

Both of which are a total ballache to use. Did nobody think of the concept of a 'back' button!?

Plus... for some reason either I'm not sure how to see it, or it has no concept of the cooling system for a Thor model. Initially I was only looking for one hose for said cooling system, and thought it was a good excuse to use MicroCat. Still don't know what the part number for said hose might be.

If you are putting your VIN in, it will see the WA prefix and only show you the parts for a GEMS. If you don't put a VIN or registration number in, it shows them all. I know it's there as I've looked at it for someone else.

Hmm

I was putting my reg in, but my P38 is a bit odd, so I tried the reg from a random 2000 model thinking mine may just come up as a GEMS and still couldn't see the bits I'm after.

My VIN is XA402, where I'm sure most Thor/Bosch are supposed to start XA410. Where do the WA vehicles fit in?

I'm after the one between the expansion tank and metal pipe mounted on the shock tower. I think it is actually PCH115910, is shown in Microcat to be fair, I've just noticed it.

I think Island might have the description wrong, as that certainly isn't for a GEMS setup.

Rimmer has pictures, maybe you recognise the hose...

This is PCH 118790 (I've added a ruler to check)

So how come your car is a 98 if it has an XA VIN? WA is late 97 to late 98 build date, 98 model year, which would normally be GEMS but I know yours is a bit of an oddball. XA would start in late 98 and be 99 model year. Although even if it was built earlier, I can't see the VIN being out of sequence. What is the actual date of registration?

That hose does look like the one. Mine has had a T piece fitted into it for the LPG, but I'm re-plumbing all that soon to go in series.

First registered 12th of June 98 apparently. It was owned by LR for the first two years of its life before being sold to its first 'normal' owner sometime in 2000. Whether it was registered for road use and built earlier I don't know. I've come across stickers with MY98 and MY99 on them on various bits. I'll have to go digging now and see where they were!
