Errr.... So I was the one that used the word knackerd and I stand by it. While it generally means exhausted, it can mean shagged out(shagging - think Austin Powers), or as I used it, damaged from use, or used-up, or simply tired.

- If a toaster is fixed with a coat hanger and duc tape to last through the morning, the repair might be referred to as bodged.
- That might lead someone to say that it was a doggy fix.
- If the toaster was misused or worn (tired) from use or , it might be said to be knackerd.

To repeatedly seat a steel glow plug against an aluminium head will, in time, lead to the head becoming damaged. It will become tired from use - or knackered.

Would it have been better to say the glow plug seat could get buggered from not using the washer. Would that have helped?

While I spend a good deal of time in England, I was born in Japan and raised in America. Ex-Brit is a bit off the mark. But kackered is clearly a British bit of slang.

Cheers,

Bill

Did You Know?

Knackered is derived from the past participle of knacker, a slang term meaning "to kill," but also "to tire, exhaust, or wear out." The origins of the verb knacker are uncertain, but the word is perhaps related to an older noun knacker, which originally was used to indicate a harness-maker or saddlemaker, and later for buyers of worn-out animals (or their carcasses) and old structures. The origins of the noun knacker, however, remain obscure. Knackered is used on both sides of the Atlantic but is more common among British speakers.

not to start trouble but suggesting it was a former Brit would be a best guess I would think. Gee maybe not politically correct

Knackered...

Depending where you look it has multiple definitions but all of them tend to suggest tired, exhausted, used-up, or simply spent.

I would use a glow plug washer. Failure to do so will result in the head getting knackered, tired, used-up, or exhausted.

I suppose as an American citizen I'm an ex-Brit (not to be confused with being part of Brit-ex). I'm sorry. I'm missing it. Is there something offensive about ex-Brit? My apologizes if I've offended someone.
