    Graduation with a Master's degree in Engineering

    Haha -I was working on the P6 shockie bushes yesterday.My neighbour wandered over and asked me what cap he should take off His motor to put some oil in. I couldn't believe it when he said he hasn't checked or put oil in it for over eight years. Needless to say it had no oil in it, yet it still...

    BW35 Inhibitor switch.... simple upgrade?

    I I somehow remember as a little fella back in the 50's my Dad fresh from the war ,making a tank from a cotton reel and rubber band with other pieces. The nick in the reel reminded me ,as it was part of its movement.

    Roverfest 2022

    Wow a P76 in Blighty. Had one back in the day. Rear screen fell out on a very hot day- only glued in. Would like to have touched the racer- I watched the factory one race in Melbourne in 73- . I felt proud to see it as I had just picked up my new one. A sad outcome ,but went well for a few laps...

    BW35 Inhibitor switch.... simple upgrade?

    Clever innovation. You should contact the manufacturer with your update and retire on the royalties. Lets hope the glue holds up under heat overtime. Good helpful info Mister R.

    The Aussie Flying Banana

    Yes -mines sitting on rubber bushes. Crazy -Ive been under there to clean out the fuel filter many times and never noticed it was insulated on rubber bobbins. Still a noisy pump without the engine running. Not worth replacing though.
