  1. I belive the traditional way is to shotblast with walnut husks. I was told a while ago that this was the only way to cleas Spitfrire carbs... the 3 wheeled Spitfire mind you. Maybe someone local has the gear?
  2. Always brought a grin driving through the Wallop's on the way to devon as a kid... https://www.google.com/maps/place/Over+Wallop,+Stockbridge,+Storbritannien/@51.1451851,-1.6364904,12.92z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x4873f0ca78369585:0x5e15a4b8441aecd5!8m2!3d51.1438501!4d-1.5959429
  3. I have a few bottles of Gadds No5 and No3 left. Cellar stock of Gadds green hop ale now depleted Having recently returned to the UK, I have "discovered" the Ramsgate brewery and am workthrough through their collections, with a few pauses, just to make sure I like "that" one.
  4. I know there's allot of info out there but this one seemed informative and simple... From the eminent pathologist Dr James Robb: Date: February 26, 2020 Subject: What I am doing for the upcoming COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Dear Colleagues, as some of you may recall, when I was a professor of pathology at the University of California San Diego, I was one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses (the 1970s). I was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained. Since then, I have kept up with the coronavirus field and its multiple clin
  5. Strange how "what goes around, comes arround" BBC today; "European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has called on member states to fight the pandemic with a rapidly co-ordinated response and pooled resources. She said the bloc would boost production of equipment such as ventilators, test kits and masks, which would then be shared across the EU instead of each country making its own supply. "The export of these products to non-EU countries would be strictly controlled."
  6. The vote that is most necessary is in Northern island (NI) to decide whether there is a consensus to leave the UK and join Ireland. If they (NI) vote to leave this solves many problems for NI and everyone remaining in the UK as the levers don't have this to hide behind (their no deal desires) and the arrangements in Mays deal for a customs union are null and void and need to be renegotiated properly. The Belfast/Good Friday agreement signed by Blair gave devolvement and the constitutional right to the residents of NI, If I have it correctly, by a simple majority. Protestants are now in a
  7. I reckon this would be good, may need to borrow a maggiebase though A bit expensive to hire for only a few holes. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ALFRA-ROTABROACH-TYPE-ANNULAR-MAG-DRILL-CUTTER-SHORT-LONG-BROACH/171376827777?hash=item27e6dadd81:m:mttiQBdl3jrDbzQXNx7-L1w He who dies with the most tools wins...
  8. Hi Tim Yes, Were heading for Toronto. but not sure exactly in the golden horseshoe we'll be based yet as the company have sent me back to Europe for a few months. Now the car is back in storage on the other side of the world! It would be great to catch up sometime. Cheers Nigel
  9. Yep were moving to Canada. I have an understanding better half - allows me to keep the toys.
  10. The saga continues of long term Triumph ownership... After 2 years in a storage unit in Brissy - Its off to foreign climates.. The guy said its the smallest car he's every had on his transporter . Probably one of the best looking though. Looking good though after being locked up for so long... Even started on second starter push with a recharged battery. Off to the container port... Toronto bound.
  11. Hi Ian This is an Odyssey PC680 fitted to a GT6. Plenty of cold cranking power for the 6 cylinder. CCA is 170A on these but the short term peak 5 seconds is over 500A. I almost frighted myself the first time I cranked the engine with this battery. You can see how much smaller than the standard battery + you can mount it flat if that fits better. I have it fitted witha Ctec battery conditioner/charger socket. Very happy with it. Cheers Nigel
  12. I had a go at similar stuff using linear pots - worked partially using a techedge logging unit but allot of lag and not very repeatable. Lost interest but could have got there with an oil bath maybe... It was a bit of fun though... Carbs have central TPS and vacuum log on each. http://sideways-technologies.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic/6165-twin-su-lambda-readings/page-2 Maybe of interest...
  13. +1 for Penrite 20:60 Especially for the Queensland climate. All round improvement in pressures but then again winter is 10 to 15 degrees, summer Temps unheard of in the country of the gt6's birth.
