  1. NOW SOLD Owing to having no time and too many things on the go, for sale is a Gas gun firing control circuit. with the two valves, spark plug, and coil. I'm also throwing in a spare coil. All this complete with instructions. £55 postage paid. This is unused and untried but the instructions are complete. The circuit is set up for a Browning heavy machine gun, but can easily be adjusted for other gun types. You will need to construct the barrel, swirl chamber, fit jets, provide the gas and tubing - all info is with the instructions. PM me if interested. Please note I will not send the instructions without the parts i.e The complete package needs to be bought. Diana

    Anneal a diesel pipe

    Well if a copper pipe breaks because it hardened yes

    Anneal a diesel pipe

    You have the wrong type of pipe, it should be copper nickel (Kunifer). Kuniper is used for exactly the reason that it does not harden like copper. Suggest you replace it with the correct pipe, some rubbers will not tolerate diesel. Diana

    JAGUAR J60 CARB, cold start

    The thickness is 0.3 mm. who the seller on eBay was I cannot remember. Sorry you'll have to do a bit of groundwork, it was around 6 or 8"" square, more than enough to make a few diaphragms. I suspect this will be too thin for fuel pumps as they are under considerable pressure and duty cycle. Diana
  5. I am looking for a pressure plate for a Churchill Tank. Please send me a private message if you have or know of one. Thank You Diana

    JAGUAR J60 CARB, cold start

    There are three diaphragms, if you have the correct material (off eBay), some patience and a hole punch pliers they can be easily made, by copying the originals, at a huge saving in cost. Diana
  7. Chris, Absolutely correct, I have designed and built the interface box for the warning pod over the UK nearside indicator - that works too and shows the battery not charging. Diana
  8. On my Spartan when the engine/gearbox is cold there is quite a bang on switch off - alarming but normal. Get it all warmed up and the bang goes. When the engine is running normally the warning light on the distribution panel comes on and the ignition light on the drivers panel goes off. Diana

    CVRT track re-rubbering?

    Cooks have the moulds to manufacture track where the pads can be replaced, but they have never implemented it and I'm told never will.. Diana

    CVRT electronic ignition question

    The J60 may or may not have points, some Belgian machines have points. If The J60 has got an electronic ignition module then it will also have a rev limiter built into the module that can be disabled by pulling a fuse which will either be on a fuse holder incorporated into the ignition coil (British Machines) or if a Belgian machine on a fuse holder adjacent to the coil. The Rev counter is normally driven by a pickup mounted on the counter through which passes the ignition feed wire. The Rev counter was made by Smiths Industries and is now unobtainable, through age it loses accuracy and can also lose linearity. because of loss of magnetism and the hairsprings becoming weak, as well as friction through wear in the movement bearings. It maybe repairable, in the end I gave up with mine and fitted a VDO rev counter with a sensor off the fan, The VDO rev counter also has a hours run meter. The diesel model CVRT uses the same VDO rev counter using a Honeywell sensor mounted on the flywheel sensing the flywheel starter teeth. A suitable sensor pickup point on the petrol engine is also the flywheel starter teeth, were in not for inaccessibility a more ideal sensor pickup point would be the rear of the engine crank toothed belt drive which has less teeth per revolution. Anyone doing a conversion to a VDO stepping motor rev counter needs to consider the design of the sensor and it's maximum pulse output, since with too many teeth on the pickup point some sensors cannot cope with the frequency. Some sensors require power and others do not. The other considerations are the clearance between the sensor and the tooth or bolt head it senses as well as the cost of the sensor (The VDO magnetic sensor is astronomical in price) The VDO stepping motor rev counter is the most versatile of rev counters, will cope with most types of sensor and can be calibrated in situ.

    The Works - Books

    In the Works bookshop yesterday - Haynes Owners Workshops manuals reduced from £22 to £6. I saw The Tiger, Sherman and Chieftain. There may have been others. Diana

    ws19 to variometer coax cable

    Television down lead is 75 Ohms and near enough to 80 Ohms that it can be used and you will see no difference whatsoever at the frequencies used by a WS19 Diana

    Surely not beyond you to make one Chris? :-)

    K60 starter problems

    I am not a K60 expert - an interesting engine, with opposed pistons and a 2 stroke! I would take some compression readings since you have the injectors out and see what comes from that. My experience of 2 strokes is - UGH ! What I do remember though is a worn cylinder hard to start until warm. You do of course have the manual ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/K60-Rolls-Royce-K60-Workshop-manual-Publication-No-2291/253378490234?hash=item3afe88ef7a:g:PwUAAOxyDLZR-97Y As it specifically mentions cold start!

    K60 starter problems

    Cylinder pressure based on the spray being more volatile than diesel therefore lower compression needed? Diana

    Oil on steering and main brake rotors

    I leave a bolt out of the inspection plate below the gearbox oil drain, any water drains out, also goes to show if there's an oil leak. Do the same for the sump inspection cover.. Diana

    K60 starter problems

    Has anyone noticed the adjusting screw with green paint has been adjusted, so that the paint seal is broken? Diana
  20. Instructions for RAK 15/2 Please note the thermal fuse is 190 degrees C and NOT 175 degrees as stated in the British version of this manual, attached the USA version which also gives the part No of the thermal fuse and it's correct temperature. If the heater will not warm, check the thermal fuse located in the bottom of the food warmer. Diana RAK15 Service Manual.pdf

    RAK 15/2 Water Heater

    The answer is yes, if you have an appropriate plug for the RAK, and short circuit 2 pins of the vehicle socket to operate the relay that feeds the power to the food warmer.. It's a food warmer, not a boiler by the way. Diana

    Dunlop TRAKMARK

    I have two pieces of Dunlop Trakmark, as new 4ft x 4ft nominal size (actually a bit larger) and 2ft x 3ft, again nominal size. £30 plus carriage. Whilst the two pieces are new there is a self adhesive backing that will need to be removed as it has become ineffective with time, the Trakmark being NOS. The TrakMark itself is perfect condition and will be sent in a cardboard tube. Weight about 4.5Kg Diana

    CVRT FV105 SPARTAN PARTS

    An FV105 is a Sultan, an FV103 is a Spartan, the pictures appear to be that of a Sultan. It also appears to be a diesel Sultan, which has a slightly different Drivers Instrument Panel to that of a petrol Sultan, especially the tachometer.. Diana
