    Spark plug

    Hi Pinky/Nick, I read an article recently that stated that many modern plugs NGK etc do not glaze the insulator down to the electrode (as they always did many years ago). Something to do with modern engines running lean never get the plugs wet. I suffered annoyance with NGK for a couple of years. Have switched to Champion L87 and they have worked very well for the past year. Roger
  2. Hi Folks, yesterday was the 66th anniversary of the TR2 run at Jabbeke. I know it is not a significant date but something out there to talk about. It went under the radar with the popular press Roge
  3. People only really die if they are forgotten after death. Always remember your past friends and family. Niki Lauda will not be forgotten. He was very good at what he did before and after his terrible accident. RIP Niki Roger
  4. Hi Nick, 0.004" = 0.1mm (almost) it is too easy. Roger
  5. The book does change with each edition. Once upon a time it was really good for BA threads without a trace of Millimeter. Roger
  6. If you have a black and yellow Dzus engineering booklet then it is in there. Roger
  7. Happy Birthday Menno, I hope you have enjoyed your day so far. Roger
  8. Those valve spring compression testers are very similar to 'Hardness testing' rigs. You apply a force 1Kg to 150Kg and see how far the tip has depressed into the test specimen. The harder the test specimen the less depression. Roger
  9. Hi John, my cynical mind would suggest that CO2 is easier to attack and tax. If you ask any school child what is that white stuff coming out the top of power stations they will all say CO2 - it is bl**dy steam in most cases. Methane comes from strange places and attacking them would drop you in the Sh*t. Roger
  10. Hi Folks, anybody on here doing the TSSC/TRR Wessex group New Forest run. Weather looking promising. Roger

    Hi Miles, yes, I had thought of that. I'll give it a bot longer and see what happens. Roger
  12. Hi Folks, does anybody on here collect cameras. I have two Canon cameras A 35mm AF35M. in what looks like good condition A super 8 cine camera 'Auto Zoom 318M' haven;t clue as to its working.but complete. If anybody wants either or both then I will send them through. Roger
  13. I like your idea but sadly paying a tax does not remove the carbon. When the likes of China, India,Russia and USA start to improve then perhaps there may be hope. Also the stupid South Americans slashing and Burning their way to death. All this palaver was being looked at in the early 60's. As a young teenager I wold be seen most week-ends sticking flyers to cars wipers warning of the impending disaster. I wonder what happened to David and Brian Liddiard If our carbon tax was sent to SA pr Madagascar for the locals to improve their farming methods then that would be something. Roger
  14. Come on John, You can only do that if there is an Interocitor fitted. The spark goes to one electrode at a time - path of least resistance. Roger
  15. Hi Mike, thanks for that. Heavens how things have changed. I thought 1/2 speed master recording and thick Vinyl were the bees knees. It is now all about where the music is. Roger
