    if it feels like a couple of inches on the pedal that sounds like a lot to me.

    IF, it turns out to be anything to do with the change of fwbs then I have experience of that and why it might be a problem, some of the popular information I found about their installation was basically wrong - but of course you only need to cross that bridge if you come to it.

    I was recently asked details about the wooden tray under the battery, and realized I had not remembered that there was one in a TD - the various discussions and drawings all refer to TF cars.

    DID the TD have a wooden battery tray? And were the dimensions the same as the TF trays variously described?

    And finally, what attaches two side pieces to the flat bottom? Nails? Glue? The b...

    I don't like it either. I live by the rule, If it ain't broke, Don't fix it! I just came back in and it wouldn't work by clicking on my bookmark, done this twice after resetting the URL. Pain!

    I would just prefer not to hunt around in the BBS for problems with the web site.

  • Mike Plumstead25 February 2020

    I have fixed this problem.

    Just checked again, I have this option checked in customise:
    Take me to that message within the thread

    But it is taking me to the top of that thread, not directly to the message clicked on. ( unless it is set for the message to be at the top anyway)

  • GuyW25 February 2020

    Is that right, maybe I have a setting wrong.

    Currently, l have my customised setting with the last post in a thread at the bottom, conveniently next to the reply box. If I click on Last posts, and then on Mike Wood's message as the most recent in that Brake travel thread,the display opens up to show the OP message, not Mike's.

    I do realise with the new up/ down arrows I can scrol...
