Re: Question about feeler gauges

I got a bluepoint set which have angled ends and are in thou and MM.

There is a formula for converting thou to MM but I can't remember it and I'm not that clever. I just use my converter app on my phone.
in the Haynes I think there is a section on converting measurements

Re: Carburettor

If your running a facet fuel pump u will need a pressure regulator. Iv got a Filter King one. Your facet will be running a lot higher than the recomended 3.5psi. My filter King one has a little gauge on top of a glass bowl with a filter in. You adjust the pressure by turning a little screw in the top

Re: Grockles......

Haha grockles. I swear only people from Devon and some parts of Cornwall use that word. My workplace is on the A39 (a main route to Cornwall) and we get any amount of 'grockles' coming in asking for directions to the campsite that they passed 2 minutes back down the road ha

In that time I think Iv had my name on the logbook of over 30 vehicles. But I have had my name on the logbook of the Capri f...

Re: SPOTTED in High Wycombe!!

North Devon is the way forward. More beaches and surfing. But the biggest town in north Devon is Barnstaple. Around 65,000 including surrounding areas. However you do get some born and Breds with the local-yokel syndrome who don't care much for outsiders. But, they are being thinned out as time goes...
