    Thanks for the input John. Learning never stops.

    The wound coil in this unit is a very large one.

    Well if some of these civil servants want to work from home it can save us a few quid as we can scrap their London weighting allowance and reduce their wages to the levels of Cornwall or wherever they are now living.

    Work from home.

    Anybody here opposed to work from home?

    Should workers go back to the office?

    Half of civil service workers, backed by unions, are demanding the right to continue working from forever.

    No particular plans but I hope to get out more!

    During the lockdown I inadvertently started a local motor club, so I expect I will organise a few social runs and other events in the Cambs/Beds/Herts/Northants area.

    As you can see from the photo, we're an eclectic bunch!

    Remember when the fear of nuclear war fueled the febrile atmosphere of the 1970's and early 80's?

    Remember "protect and survive?

    Remember the doomsday clock?

    "US spy planes are trying to find out if Putin has deployed tactical nuclear weapons to Ukraine border:"

  • J Scragg24 January 2022

    Bill,

    The power input to the radio is 12 Volts Direct Current (DC).
    The valves (tubes) require a High voltage e.g. 200 volts. A transformer is used to step up the voltage.
    However:
    Transformers require alternating Current (AC) to function.
    The job of the vibrator is to convert direct DC to alternating current. AC is then used as in input to the transformer to obtain the hi...

    Its not a bad idea to leave the shackle bolts just a little slack until it is sitting on its wheels, or even after you have loaded it and driven a couple of miles.

  • James Paul24 January 2022

    Thanks for the replies.

    So as long as the shackles are not pointing forwards and the check straps are not tight then when everything is fitted and after a few miles everything should settle down.

    Good to know. Can carry on now and stop worrying about it.

  • CALIFORNIA CAR

    A 1970 MGB Roadster that I have owned since 1982. It is complete, original, and was a great ride when running but it has been up on jack stands for about 20 years now and is not running.

    It is a great project car for the right person.

    It is 100% complete and comes with both a hard top, a rag top and lots of other accessories (e.g., two tonneau covers). There are also 2 large box...
