When Girling does not fit the Girlings…

Dolly’s brake is not the best… I have to pump few times before it works decently, and the brake oil is seeping out from rear brake cylinder. Have tried to bleed the system but it does not help either. The option is to replace the whole set of wheel brake cylinder or the seal only… I opt for the later.. :)

Since the brake cylinder is genuine girling,  we are using “girling” seals… not sure if it is genuine, but the words Girling stamped on the seals… So we installed it without any major incidence… Easy, Done..! or so we think…

One day later,  when I drive it out of town, one of the brake locked (bind). Dolly literally  dragging its tire, I can smell the burning brake pad, but I continue to push it further until we find a garage. When we found one, I told the garage owner what is wrong and he help me to fix it…

Later on we found out that the seal is locked solid… it can’t slide (expand and return) inside the cylinder wheel easily. The problem is, there no shop carrying land rover spare part around here. but the garage owner is very resourceful, he said that the seal looks like Toyota’s

He bring the seals to nearest automotive shop and ask for Toyotas (4 tires Toyota truck not the 6 tires) Indonesian call it “Toyotas engkel”, and it fits splendidly… No bind, easy slides, expand and return all working great… not to mention the price is very cheap too, all seals cost me US$ 2.8 (Rp. 28.000).

I am using it for  about 2 weeks now, and no problems… So if you have problem with your  wheel brake cylinder seals.. Use Toyota’s truck seals, make sure the size is the same.. hope it helps



Someone hacked my Gmail account


Few days ago, someone hijacked my Gmail account, I am not sure how they did it… Google has very strong security features, so I do not think they have cracked Gmail security. Either they got it from spy ware in my computer or I fall into phishing trap.

How did it happened…

I open Gmail almost everyday, nothing suspicious until the day the account hijacked… at around 11AM, I got SMS notification from a number (4664000)… it said:

Google account ; suspicious login detected. see

I thought this is some kind of phishing, but when I see the adrress and no link, it serems legitimate… Nothing I can do as I did not have internet access at that moment… and then I got another message from same number:

Google account ; Password changed, see

Now, I am getting really worried.. someone broke into my google account… they will know my correspondence on online transaction and they may be able to  trick others by using my account…

Second later, few of my colleagues sending me message… asking why am I sending useless stuff…

How I reclaimed the account

Panicked and worried I go to nearest internet access.. yes its Starbuck, ordered a drink and WiFi access code… its weird because is now fasting month.. :). But this is urgent and I need internet access now…

Log-in to Google account,  true enough I can not logged in…. Good things is Google notify me that the password has been changed an hour ago, and ask whether it is me… I click the link and they provide me with this notification…Image

A bastard from Romania hacked my Gmail account..??? Seems that google prevented the attempt, but he managed to send spam… how can that be… but glad to see no further damage has been done..

I clicked “No”, and they offer me to re-set the password using associated account or SMS notification… Again Glad that I provide my real cellphone number… Although I am not activating my two step verification I am able to recover the account… I am activating it now although a bit annoying (i.e you can not log in if your phone battery is dead) but I think it worth it… and I suggest you to do the same…

I am very sorry for the inconvenience… if you got a spam from me, do not click the link or give user name and password or download anything… if you already did… someone may have your password…

Cheers for now and Take care
