Scottoiler Failed

2015-10-20 10.39.45-1
It’s a damaged piece of tubing with a cloth behind it balanced on a swinging arm

I replaced a bit of the Scottoiler before we came away, and now another bit has gone.  The (final) drive chain has gnawed through the oil delivery tube.  I got some generic tubing from a… erm… generic shop and replaced the damaged bit.  New tubing was slightly bigger in diameter so old to new joined really easily.  I routed the new tubing exactly as the old one had been.

Because I routed the new tubing exactly as the old had been, the (final) drive chain gnawed through it straight away.  Who’d have thought?

Fixed it again.
