  1. Has Venetian moved? As far as I'm aware it is on the Middlewich branch of the Shroppy.
  2. So are these aircraft going to have removable battery packs ? The turn around time for say Easyjet is about 30 mins. How are they going to charge the batteries in this sort of time or will there be longer turn around times making the airlines non viable? An airport like Heathrow is going to need a massive amount of power to cope, where's this coming from ?
  3. Make your own, grind off the bottom and fit a roof vent ring. Oh dear I think I'm turning into Bizz.
  4. I had an Austin 1300 in the distant past and this had an expansion tank level with the sump. The radiator had a plain cap and the expansion tank had a pressure cap. The radiator was always full so must have sucked up the coolant ok.
  5. The short engine was a 'Silver Seal' if I remember correctly and the 'Gold Seal' was a complete engine.
  6. I can remember in the 60's when Halfords used to sell BMC A series 'Gold Seal' factory reconditioned engines. I think they were about £40.
  7. That must have changed fairly recently then. Thanks for that info.
  8. And a Co-op at the top end of the high street.
  9. I don't think anyone's mentioned Aldi at Rugeley, close to bridge 67 next to the church. Moorings either side of the bridge.
  10. LEC, I have been reliably informed.
  11. Well they will be good for the oiks to tie their swings and bungy ropes to.
  12. If you put the locknut on the other side of the trunion you could shorten the cable a bit.
  13. Morse Teleflex cables (now called Seastar) are measured end of thread to end of thread. Most Teleflex have extra holes in the control unit to vary the throw.
  14. Trunion & pin are commonly used on the control end. https://www.midlandchandlers.co.uk/engineering-tools/engine-controls/cable-fittings
  15. Asap will have what you need. https://www.asap-supplies.com/brands/morse
  16. Before you condemn the alternator check the the multipoint connector between the engine and instrument panel. Pull apart and spray with switch cleaner. These connectors can be a source of all sorts of problems.
  17. Ok, I concede it was a daft suggestion.
  18. Driving a tractor down the canal bed with a cutting attachment.
  19. If you had gone down the L&L to Liverpool last September you would have had plenty of practice at clearing weed. Around the Maghull area I had to go down the weed hatch 8 times in less than 2 miles to clear weed. The canal was choked with it. We met a CaRT work boat trying to clear it who said it got bad after the breach last year near Melling when the pound was drained and the weed grew big time. I asked if it would have been better to clear the weed when the pound was empty and got the reply "probably, but we didn't think of that".
  20. I think the only difference in the two engines is the power output. The LD1 is 3.5hp @ 1800rpm and the LR1 is 5.25hp @ 2500rpm. Mechanically they have common parts. RLWP will give you any detail differences.
  21. It goes in the bottom of the burner. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Heater-Burner-Screen-Pad-Mesh-Gauze-Replace-For-Webasto-Thermo-Top-E-C-V-EVO4-5/263403770112?hash=item3d54169100:g:BV8AAOSw0W5aQOWL
  22. I've got a 12year old TomTom XL car satnav that displayed the wrong time & date after April. Went on the TomTom website and downloaded a free software fix & is now working correctly .
  23. Yes, Stanley Ferry works. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/news-and-views/news/huddersfield-canal-lock-gates-get-chelsea-makeover-for-welcome-to-yorkshire
  24. Amazing project. The time lapse video is interesting. https://www.housebeautiful.com/uk/garden/a27519892/chelsea-flower-show-welcome-to-yorkshire-garden-mark-gregory/ CaRT donated old lock gates. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI87xHWLxMA&t=36s
