    • My final ticket:      1.      The original Claimant agreed to undertake building work (Project 1) at the original Defendant/now Part 20 Counterclaimant’s property in relation to 3 specific areas of work for an agreed price of £4300.  The work was:   a. To underpin the bay window at the property, b. To replace and repair a previously-removed chimney breast and, c. To install a new beam to the patio door.   2.      It was agreed that Project 1 was to be carried out under the instructions of a structural engineer engaged by the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant and that the Claimant’s work would be as a result of instructions received following the structural engineer's assessment of the property.   3.      Between June and July in 2020 the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant provided the Claimant with a full copy of the structural engineer's report which detailed instructions to the Claimant for the works to be carried out.   4.      It was agreed between the parties that the works would commence on 13 August 2020.   5.      It was agreed between the parties that payments for Project 1 would be made in three instalments. The first payment would be made at the start of the Claimant's work. The second payment would be paid at the halfway point of the Claimant's work. The final payment would be made on completion of the total works.   6.      The Claimant commenced work on 13 August 2020 and the first instalment due was paid.     7.      On 24 August 2020 the Claimant asked the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant to arrange an inspection of his work by the Building Control Inspector.  The Claimant also stated that Project 1 was approaching mid-way and the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant paid the second instalment due.   8.      The Building Inspector arrived to inspect the Claimant’s work but the Claimant was absent.  The inspector was obviously very displeased by the standard of the Claimant's work.  The inspector spoke to the Claimant by telephone, asking him why he was absent and interrogating him about the work he had done.  The inspector then gave him some instructions over the telephone and also left a list of instructions with the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant to be passed on to the builder.  The building inspector then said he would be getting in touch with the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant’s structural engineer with his findings and the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant should hear from the engineer soon.   9.      The Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant passed on the Building Inspector’s instructions to the Claimant who agreed to follow them.   10.  The structural engineer visited and recommended piling to complete the underpinning for Project 1.  The Claimant explained that he could not undertake this work. The structural engineer then suggested an alternative company to the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant to do the necessary work and this company was engaged by the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant to complete the necessary piling at an additional cost to the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant of £3000. (See receipt at Exhbibit-1).   11.  The Claimant asked if the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant needed any more work to be done and, despite the problems encountered on Project 1, the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant agreed on 7 September 2020 to have more work done (Project 2) at an agreed price of £2580 and on similar payment terms to Project 1.   12.  As work commenced on Project 2 and was continued on the remaining work for Project 1, the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant had occasion to make several complaints to the Claimant regarding the standard of his work.   13.   Barely a week after starting on Project 2, the Claimant demanded payment for that work.  After a period of negotiation the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant paid the Claimant £1500 in cash.  Both parties agreed that this left a balance outstanding on Project 2 of £1080.   14.  It later came to the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant’s attention that the Claimant had removed material (including a steel beam) from the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant’s property that the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant suspects either belonged to him or had been paid for by him in connection with Project 1.  When the Claimant challenged admitted he had done this.  The Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant has included the value of this material in his counterclaim detailed below.   15.    On 21 September 2020 the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant highlighted and sent a snagging list to the Claimant (Exhbibit-2).  Over a month later the Claimant sent an employee to attend to this work.  It was not carried out satisfactorily and resulted in an updated snagging list being sent to the claimant (Exhibit -3).  All of this snagging work remains undone by the Claimant.   16.  Apart from the outstanding snagging work referred to in para 16 above, the Claimant also left other work from Projects 1 and 2 uncompleted.  That work which was not completed is listed at ( Exhibit 4.)   17.  During the course of carrying out work on Projects 1 and 2 the Claimant also negligently caused substantial damage to the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant’s property (as itemised in  Exhibit-5) by not executing the work with the skill expected of a reasonable tradesman.   18.  The Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant seeks an order from the court directing the Claimant to pay to the Defendant/Part 20 Counterclaimant the sum of £16,577.12 in respect of:   (a)   the cost of the piling referred to in para 10 above which the Claimant could not undertake and another contractor had to be paid to complete; (b)   the cost of completing work the Claimant had left undone from Projects 1 and 2 referred to in para 16 above; (c)   the cost of remedial work to put right the damage negligently caused by the Claimant and referred to in para 17 above. (d). the cost of the steel beam referred to in para 14 above put down as estimated.   A receipts in respect of 3 items (a) - see Attachment 1 – Page-4-8 for:   (i) £3,000.00 GTM piling,                                                      (ii) Rubble truck £387.12                                                     (iii) £250.00 to Mellor the roofer   The two priced quotes in respect of items (b) (1) Cheshire Bespoke Building Limited for £5,190.00,  and (2) Mellor Roofing Specialist. (c) – see Attachments 6 and 7 - are attached in support of this counterclaim.     The defendant/Part 20 counterclaimant is claiming 8% interest under the County Courts Act 1984 from the 26 October 2020 which was the last day the       STATEMENT OF TRUTH   I believe that the facts stated in this particulars of counterclaim are true. I understand that proceedings for contempt of court may be brought against anyone who makes, or causes to be made, a false statement in a document verified by a statement of truth without an honest belief in its truth.’.

Hi guys, well I have bought a new engine and the heads and stuff have been overhauled and it's nearly ready to go in the vehicle. the only thing holding it up is trying to identify a sensor that the clown mechanic broke while taking the engine out. It sits on the side of the right head (as you look at the front of the vehicle) and is near the intake manifold I believe. I have attached some pictures in the hope that someone can identify it so I can order a new one. Sorry for being a pain, but I have tried everywhere to try and identify it and I'm stumped now!! Your help again, would be most appreciated. Wish I was a bloke and had mechanical knowledge! lol. :roll:

That's a pressure sensor by the look of it and would suggest the oil one. A temp sensor would have a little tube out of it. Only thing that makes me nervous is that with an oil pressure sensor there is usually a black witness mark on the bottom which dosent appear to be here from the pics.

hi guys, I think it had some sort of plastic tube out the top that has been broken off. I have added some more pics to see if that clears things up. It was on the right head (from the front of the vehicle). Hope this helps. Have just looked at a pic of an oil pressure sensor and it does look similar although it's a different colour.

forgot to mention, no it hasn't got a hole at the bottom of it. Wish I knew what was attached to the top of it, might narrow it down a bit. The clown has broken loads of stuff....would have been better hiring an outraged gorilla to do it, might have caused less damage!!!! lol

Hi, sorry to hijack this thread,

 

I think that is the Ignition or Knock sensor...... about £25 quid or so. I believe Delphi make one. Ill see if I can find the part number for you!!

it definitely looks like the knock sensor, would the knock sensor be in the location on the head that I mentioned? If so then by george I think you've got it! lol ;)

I don't know these engines to well, but yeah most likely to be on the block somewhere, did the mechanic damage this?? You said you had a misfire and had some ignition work done? I would imagine if this sensor was faulty, a misfire or rough running could be a sympton;)

Fuel injected I believe. Have just read a item about knock sensors and it does say that some V6 engines had them on the left head...I presume that is the view from the drivers seat....but still not sure what the hell this sensor is lol. Does anyone know where I can get a side view of the head with parts description to narrow it down. I have already subscribed to All Data, but it isn't clear on there either!!! Help!!! lol

the clown ripped out everything so nothing is connected anymore. I have just had another look on All Data and found the location of the knock sensor and it is what I'm looking for! So I will order one in the morning. Thanks guys for your ever fantastic assistance and I will keep you posted on progress xx :)

I would suggest that it is a temp sensor using spirit in a capillary tube.

 

Can you not see any tubing heading through the bulkhead?

 

Blimey Conniff!! That's going back a few years isn't it? No doubt Hammy will be along to add his two new pence worth.:grin:
