    My 'kit of parts' that is now my frogeye was missing the wire clip, so I designed and made a U shaped securing plate. Easy to fit with the dash in position and it holds the switch more securely with 3 small set screws.

    The U shaped part just slides into the slots on the switch and a stubby Phillips screwdriver then to tighten the 3 screws against the back of the dash.

    Before cars were invented people rode around on the backs of horses. In the post automobile era people will ride around on cows, floating serenly over the landscape lifted by their methane bags and fed on lab grown baked beans.
    I am sure that Monty Python has already patented this idea or I would.

    Well!

    All the goo on my underside didn't cause any problems other than reminding me to wash properly.

    They practically fell out. Maybe it's an age thing.

    So far it's been painless.

    I've got the axle on stands and drained the oil out, that was another job but plenty of release oil, a little heat, patience and mole grips got the old plugs out. They are slightly ta...

    Jim I don't have a photo of the markings but as John says ...there is an LH and RH stamped very lightly into the backplate. I had a 50/50 chance on getting them right on the TF ...which I did. When I did the TD a few years later I got them wrong and that was when I learned that they are handed. It's also true of the front back plates as well. I also never realized that the rear spring mounts w...

    Just finished replacing the ignition/headlight switch on the Frog without removing the dash.
    I found securing the 4ba bolt through the wire clip a bit of a challenge. Here's a tip. Fit the clip and ensure its correctly located in the slots in the switch. Fit the screw through the ears in the clip upwards, I then used a strong magnet to hold the screw in position so I could fit the spring washe...

    Thanks Colin,

    yes presumably Sunak will get relief on at least his second home.

    The 400 is as I understand it, given to the Energy companies who then apply a 400 credit to each householder's account so whilst there is scope for scammers to defraud people, it should be less prevalent.

    Oh dear, I showed your post to Mrs Roger D and she went Woohoo. She doesn't often make a noise like that but when she does...Look Out!

    Bruce,
    If you feel you need to plug this hole. You could use the gator from a master cylinder and just hold it in place with a zip tie in the throttle shaft. Though I don't think much in the way of fumes will come into the cockpit through there. But it would make it look good. :)

  • anamnesis27 May 2022

    I agree again Rob.

    It's as if we are waiting until it's too late, so we can say, sorry it's too late to stop pukin now.

    If so, we'll have bloody big regrets later, when he expands into another country.

  • MG Moneypit27 May 2022

    Not very good news from Ukraine today with Russia taking the upper hand and the West continuing to say we should support Ukraine with heavy weapons. There's only one thing I can say to that and it's "too little, to late" Putin will be very tempted not to stop at the Donbas and the West are going to regret it.
