    Chains get longer when they heat up, and get shorter when they cool down. If everything is fitted properly and the bar is tight it may just be the change in temperature of the chain. This is the reason why motorcycle chains should be adjusted when cold. If you adjust them when hot you can do serious damage to the chain, output shaft bearings and even break chain casings when the chain is cold from over tension .

    We had a stack of onion grass in our back garden and I found the best way to get rid of it is to loosen the soil with a garden fork then pull them out by hand. If they are tight and feel like they'll snap, give it another good forking then try again. Just push the fork in as deep as you can and pull it back and forth to loosen the soil. A mate of mine who is an Agronomist said that there can be small nodules on the roots that can start a new plant so I'm not sure if sieving would be a good...

    A lot of new front loaders only have a cold water inlet now, so you can usually get away with one tap. How many inlet hoses does yours have? Putting the tap in the sink cupboard is usually the best way to go, and just use one of those small 1/4 or 1/2 turn taps similar to this

    As others have mentioned use a plastic primer in a spray can. Also give it a really good clean before doing anything, splitty's have a habit of developing a greasy film on the plastic. Krylon make specific plastic paints that I think are the best in the business (Krylon Fusion). I've used them on old plastic motorcycle parts that are subject to flexing and chaffing etc. and it's the best I've ever used but not sure if they have the colour you are after....
