    FV432 driving on street query

    Anyone digging on a street or highway under the Roads and Streetworks Act 1991 has to have a licence. In a nutshell this was introduced by the Government in order to prevent a road or pavement being incorrectly re-instated, thus causing subsidence or potholes. It was also to prevent a road or pavement being dug up, reinstated and dug up a few months later by a different utility to the first. The fact of the matter is the dodgy practices of the past still continue with some contractors totally ignoring the legislation - especially some councils own staff !!!! Diana

    cvrt indicator switch

    Take it apart and lubricate the leather washer with silicon oil, there's also a small screw at the rear that bears down on felt or cotton wool padding. This is for the adjustment of time delay. Diana

    Goodbye Piggy :(

    In my observation the ability to drive has nothing to do with age and a lot to do with common sense and a perception of danger, which in my experience is declining.

    Goodbye Piggy :(

    Not strictly true, it can be maintained provided your doctor and optician pass you fit to drive, though another piece of legislative nonsense is the ability to hold a B licence and pass a H test then drive a tracked vehicle of any weight, provided you maintain your B licence. Diana

    Discussion on the bling ferret

    It was so well fixed no-one wanted to buy it for a long time as most of us were watching it - and when someone did it was sold it below what it was worth.

    Discussion on the bling ferret

    Does that include putting back the bits that have gone missing ? (If you can find them)........ Diana

    Discussion on the bling ferret

    It would have cost as much to de-bling it as put it back to the way it should have been - a message to blingers there 🙂 Also known as turning something into scrap!

    We've had the bling Ferret, and look what happened to that! Is this the bling CVRT? Diana

    6 or 12v jeep?

    So Tony- given the foregoing, An AC current generates a magnetic field across the wire that opposes the flow of current, known as induction. DC does not. and expounding your vast knowledge electricity can you explain how a DC clamp meter works? Diana PS - I did study physics, I think your ideas on electricity are wonderful 🙂 . I am in awe, as I'm sure is Chris McMillan.

    6 or 12v jeep?

    It would be phenomenal, I am surprised this idea hasn't caught on by now. And think of the saving in natural resources, all based on hollow cables 🙂

    6 or 12v jeep?

    I see.. interesting, a bit like water going down the plughole. the swirling is different depending in which hemisphere you live. I must ask the next electrician I see if I can have hollow cables as the inside bit isn't any good and I am paying for it 🙂 Diana

    6 or 12v jeep?

    "Basic rule AC runs ON a wire, so surface area is important, DC runs IN " So the skin effect operates at 50Hz does it???? Diana

    Wanted to Borrow Muddy supports

    You do realise that stainless steel and aluminium are not compatible,? Mixing them in direct contact on a cvrt is likely to result in corrosion of the aluminium. Diana

    CVRT throttle lock - stupid idea?

    The wingnut is essential if the engine is started from a cold start, charging a battery or using the boiling vessel to boil, or warm water. The habit is to make sure it's backed off. Diana

    In a local garage I was astonished to see a car raised each corner on 4 trolley jacks ! 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
  24. 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
