Re: Well I said I would.............

Thank you for all the help.I will hopefully be looking at starting my engine again after its cam break-in and dyno run some 3-4 years ago (Stewie is mentally checking off the years and thinking thoughts of wishful thinking on my part) and I had thought to take out the plugs and spin the engine for 3...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Re: Well I said I would.............

Stewie maintains my approach to building of my car will net me the award for the longest build in club history and he may well be right. But there are reasons. When your Father writes technical articles for The Model engineer and has requests for birthday presents such as "a very interesting book on...

I was also thinking for a while about routing of an earth strap back form the engine to the negative battery pole to ensure effective starting. The problem was whe...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Merry Christmas all, its either enforced conversation or a post and you won. I had thought about the boot stay for a while and about the angle and whether or not there was any torsional forces on the shaft as it closed.

Re: A very nice touch

Great show everyone and love the banner. Given my talents extend to being only able to remember the sites password when there is an R in the month I am impressed. However being of a certain vintage, what I am getting from the banner is Life of Brian with the three wise men. Roger King is Brian's mo...

Re: Well I said I would.............

Hello Peter, glad to see you are operating the approach of "well it seems logical and in the absence of any other reason......"

Re: Well I said I would.............

Um, why didn't I use the later model? I have to confess I didn't know it existed. (Off stage vocal limbering up session for this evening). I can't see the bends collapsing due to the curvature providing increased strength and quite a lot of the hose is over joiners but the long section of 15cm or so...
