  1. Innisfree has (or had before I sold it) a large frame Leece Neville (100amps @24v) at 2:1 reduction on a 3000rpm engine it could give full output at less than 2k engine rpm when cold, needed 2k+ when hot.
  2. Not too late, the race is on, 'pandemics' are great for the environment, a few more to manufacture and the tide can be turned.
  3. Great, very pleased with it though we rarely use the extender, just a 10 min maintenance run once a month, ideal for local journy lockdown but gives security if we do a longish trip and battery isn't fully charged, only ever had to use it a couple of times but that was to keep SoC above 30% (I spoil them rotten)
  4. Change has started, it's well on the way, the ball is big and it's rolling faster each day, the world is changing, world population explosion has been slowing for a while now, global expansion is slowly grinding to a halt, helped along by Covid 19 (more of similar to come I think) It has to be so if we are to survive. ETA: It's the big clean up.

  10. Once upon a time when I was a young lad I was walking with my dad in the Peak District (near 'Toads Mouth' rock Fox House to be exact) It was a hot day and I was thirsty "Dad, can I drink from the stream?" "Aahh o' cewerse tha can owd lad" So I did drink, very refreshing, it was too. Only later when I ventured upstream did I see the dead sheep decomposing in the water. But I'm ok now 🤯🤑
  11. Conrod must stretch to some extent, the faster they travel the more they stretch, microscopically maybe but its still there. I recall a relative buying a Triumph Herald many years ago that suffered broken rings when they hit a wear ridge in the bores, caused by being revved higher than the previous owners gentle driving. It was cured by fitting 'ridge dodger' rings which had a step in the top of the upper ring, not uncommon back then, though I don't know if they are still avaliable.
  12. LPWS4, used to run at 1k for a couple of mins then into gear and gradually increase revs until running temp, after cruising for an hour or more and ready to switch off a quick blast to max revs in neutral, allow to tick over them shut down. Never revving to max risks broken rings if after a few thousand hours engine running it is revved to max, the higher the revs the more the con rods stretch and rings will hit the wear ridge at the top of the cylinders. Never exceed previously selected max revs on a high hours/mileage engine. ETA: Revving to max with a cold engine is the worst thing you can do.
