  1. Maybe your name was enough of a warning to everyone else to keep an eye out for you?
  2. A loose propeller will be acting like an unbalanced one. It may have damaged the shaft as well as the tube. If it's moving five degrees around the taper I'd suggest it has already damaged the key which may already have had a detrimental effect on the taper. It's impossible to say how long it's going to hang on, it might be 100 yards - 100 miles - 100 years, however the longer it's left the more expensive it's going to be. Your approach to accepting someone else's survey, especially in the light of how they've allowed something as major as a loose prop to go unattended, I find optimistic. I get the feeling you've made your mind up what you're going to do and are looking for agreement. Still the things that stop us from sleeping at night are all different, best of luck I hope it goes well for you.
  3. Someone once said to me ..... "Don't be tempted into road rage, if you think another driver is a being a selfish, boorish, arse then the chances are everybody else crossing their path will think so too." It wasn't long after that I realised the same advice applied to: - * Pedestrians * Those in the same queue as you * Fellow passengers on your train/plane/bus * Other customers at the bar or the next table to you in a restaurant * Work colleagues you find yourself to be within striking distance of for far too many hours five days a week. ... and of course those you stumble across on't cut. The secret is not to think it is incumbent upon you to point out to them the error of their ways.
  4. Make and model of both your engine and the gearbox might help a bit.
  5. I think removing Tycho's ice ram would be as much vandalism as straightening the rounded chines on Harrison Bros. "Spitfire" because your wife didn't like the way it rolled. If you can't respect history don't own it.
  6. On balance beam, so do I.
  7. First thing I'd want to do is re-site the toilet. After all if you're really set on it being visible you should have it on the roof where EVERYBODY can see it, and not just those on board.

    Don't worry I didn't understand what I was on about either.

    Flywheel Advice

    Fair comment. I guess I'm reacting to a couple of things: - a) Always look at the easiest and cheapest first, which I think you're also suggesting. b) I've twice experienced exactly this with the same type of engine and alternator. Everything worked fine for years and then suddenly more resistance was required. I've been happy simply because it was working again without thinking any deeper. I guess I just accepted one of the elves had got lazy or escaped.
