  1. If you had the manual you usually find what the thread size is from the part that you removed. Diana
  2. Etching primer is brilliant, it will even etch into plastic as it marked my microwave. I use it for most things now, I found the spray (CAN) etch isn't that good though. Diana
  3. I fitted a brand new fuel level gauge inside the fuel tank of my CVRT, the state of it now is shocking. Bio fuel also destroyed the plastic sight glass as it destroys most plastics, the only type it is claimed it will not destroy is PET, or PETG. which I have replaced the original with. So far it seems OK. Diana
  4. And I suppose we just take a trip to our nearest airfield or airport? Diana
  5. Remove the thermostat and I'd concur with Chris Diana
  6. Just up the road from me (not in London) and con convert a dial to read MPH https://speedycables.com/ Diana
  7. Found this for you , amazing what you can do using Google search. Diana http://www.knowhere.co.uk/Kettering/Northamptonshire/Midlands/messages?start=6 I recently purchased a 2.0 KVA Haverhill generator and I am looking for someone to assist in servicing this unit, perhaps an ex employee of the company, with servicing knowledge, could contact me and help with my problems. Thanks Re: Haverhill Generators by phil (Member 10120231) on 18-Mar-2004 ref your haverhill gen,if you still need help get in touch. ex service engineer Re: Haverhill Generat
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. Does that include putting back the bits that have gone missing ? (If you can find them)........ Diana
  14. 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!
  15. We've had the bling Ferret, and look what happened to that! Is this the bling CVRT? Diana
  16. 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.
  17. 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 🙂
  18. 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
  19. "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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. In a local garage I was astonished to see a car raised each corner on 4 trolley jacks ! Diana
  23. 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 wil
  24. Well if a copper pipe breaks because it hardened yes
