  • anamnesis02 December 2020

    Pfizer (American) vaccine approved in the uk, beginning Monday next week.

    Is it odd that the US hasn't approved it?

    I trust the MHRA. I trust the vaccine is safe and effective.

    Why hasn't the FDA appeoved it? The conspiricy theory will say, it's for the same reason the vaccine announcements came after the election. Trump complained yesterday approval is taking too long....

    just had a look on NTGs y and ytpage and although
    there is a roll of channel on there it states it's for Z models etc so the size might not be right

    P.S. Mine's a Clarke but I would think the same issues apply to other makes.

    Hi Franz,
    Don't understand your last posting ??

    I'd say you are on the right track.

    From personal experience a few times, it's a wire feed problem. When the wire feeds too slowly for the current, it fuses to the tip.

    To check. Pinch wire between finger and thumb. If you can stop the wire easily, and the feed motor doesn't slow down, then it's likely the pinch rollers or the liner. If you can slow the motor easily, you may need...

    Hi Kevin,
    Most of my email addresses are being hit with hundreds of spam emails every day and there seems to be no way of stopping them. As fast as I delete them, more arrive when I sleep. You can block the senders address, but they just change them and they keep coming. Very time wasting and frustrating.

    I have just replied to your one email that came through.

    Cheers
    ...

  • K G Mills02 December 2020

    Hi Tony,
    I have tried an email to the address you said works.
    Don't know how successfully. I have a number of bounced emails right now, where the recipients' servers advise the accounts' inboxes are full or the servers are too busy.

    Please let's know if I succeeded or not.

    cheers KGM

    Thanks Bill. I had forgotten about that MASC article. Useful!
    And I am pretty certain the sender body is properly earthed. It was one of the little upgrades I did when making the loom, to add a dedicated wire to earth the sender and tank to the car body.

    I hear what you say Willy, about smoke, but why? Isn't 12v what it normally gets when connected and a full tank?

  • GuyW02 December 2020

    Gas. Argon/CO2
    0.6 wire
    The only other thing, it was pretty cold and damp. Not raining but one of those still days when any cold surface gets a coating of condensation. I wonder if that maybe was causing the rollers to slip on the wire.

  • SHOW WINNING 55 TF1500

    1955 MG TF 1500

    One of just over 3000 produced between late 1953 and late 1955.

    The TF was the middle child, filling the gap from the TD and the up and coming MG-A. The 1500 engine was the new engine for the MG-A and was dropped into a few of the TF's. These sold well and are still very popular today for the swoopier lines than the TD, better handling, better power, more comfort....

  • 1980 MGB TOURER

    1980 MG-B Roadster

Most of the interior w...
