Re: Today I mostly .....

There's a decent bit of clearance. It doesn't actually sit any closer to the wheel than the original one - there's a splash guard between the wheel and the cylinder to go back in too. I'll try to get a better photo tomorrow. There's so little weight over the front that you don't really see a huge am...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Finally got hold of the last couple of bits I'd been waiting on to allow me to proceed with the brake system upgrade on the Invacar. https://i.ibb.co/hHWZy0M/IMG-20210202-163456.jpg Metric unions are needed because the master cylinder is metric, and the T is a replacement so I can replace the 4-way ...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Very little time for cars today annoyingly as literally as I was opening the garage door I got a panicked phone call from a friend informing me that they had lost electrical power to their garage (which contains their washing machine and tumble drier) and they can't get an electrician in before the ...

Re: Today I mostly .....

It's been a bit of a frustrating afternoon. Spent another hour and a half on the phone to Vodafone, trying to give them their stupid 4G modem thing back. No surprises that they've charged me for it, despite assurances half a dozen times that I wouldn't have to. Seriously, if you have a choice just d...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Just noticed something when flipping through the photos I took when looking at the alternator on the Jag. https://i.ibb.co/mDJD22P/IMG-20210127-145202.jpg If I can get to it, that's getting trimmed back and re-terminated... I'm not honestly expecting it to make the slightest difference. However it's...

Re: Today I mostly .....

The box with my new steering linkage ball joints has turned up. There's a little play in a couple of the ones on the car and one of the others has a shredded boot, so I think it's time to replace them. https://i.ibb.co/GQsNHpG/IMG-20210127-150020.jpg These are standard Mini track rod ends so readily...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Let's finish the job we started yesterday. It was still cold. https://i.ibb.co/xSYPgxV/IMG-20210124-143221.jpg Somewhere down the line once the garage is actually sorted out I'll have to think about getting some heating installed. Step 1...Do what I should have done yesterday and spend ten minutes t...

Re: Today I mostly .....

I've been doing a bit of a poor job of updating things on the cars lately, though mainly because not a huge amount has been going on. It's a good time I've found to start ticking off a few of the jobs which had been waiting for the right time to happen and/or further information. One of these jobs w...

Re: Today I mostly .....

While today has largely been extremely annoying there was some good news: This arrived in the post. https://i.ibb.co/ftJcMRt/IMG-20210121-150359.jpg Sadly we do appear to have suffered some damage during shipping. Looks like we have a display issue. This is showing an incremental count through all 1...

Re: Today I mostly .....

New webpage now online for the Casio PF-3000 Calculator and Data Bank https://i.ibb.co/BzVb1RN/IMG-20210116-001331.jpg An interesting little device from back when the designers hadn't quite figured out what form what we came to know as the PDA would take. Noticed one typo already I'll need to go bac...

Re: Today I mostly .....

all of them of course I later found three of them hiding amongst the ridiculously huge pile of leaves, dead things and other crap that fell out of the heater assembly. I only found the fourth one the day after i finished reasssembling everything. I still want to know where the fourth one from my Ni...

Re: Today I mostly .....

I had the fun of removing the heater assembly from the LADA today. Of course, when I say fun... I had a seized heater valve and also i suspected water ingress through the air vent (which i confirmed). And now i can look forward to the joy of putting it back together again. Well done. How many of th...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Despite successfully finishing wiring up the condenser enclosure and getting the remote start button working yesterday the day ended rather depressingly when I managed to lock the keys in the van. I also discovered that the battery charger I thought I had repaired following it going bang quite spect...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Finally got around to building up the enclosure for the distributor condenser for TPA today. The 0.22uF caps still haven't arrived, so I've just made up a dual 0.1uF cap. As it will be living in a large enough enclosure there's really no issue with this. https://i.ibb.co/F58QsSB/IMG-20210104-133029....

Re: Today I mostly .....

I might die of shock...Two updates on my website in three weeks. The Kovac K-80D is now live in the Vintage Technology section. Definitely need to get started on the Spring Cleaning of the site as a whole soon though. I'd really like to get some of the older stuff archived and get some actually read...
