Re: Revenge C.R. Style

Nearly there Dave, So it's off with the plug cap, out with the pencil and draw a thin carbon line from top to bottom of the ceramic insulator. As we all know HT current will always take the easiest route so instead of tracking down the centre electrode and hurling itself across the correctly set gap...

Re: Revenge C.R. Style

Chippy/ Shipwrights wear this necessary bit of kit normally behind the ear?
H.T.. area here applies.

Re: Revenge C.R. Style

Just remembered an old chant from way back along.
One degree of timing equals one degree of dwell.
But that's got nothing to do with this trick/ set up jobby.
Just came back to me after being stored in the back of the brain for X amount of years.
( X being the unknown no.)

Re: Revenge C.R. Style

Nope.
Clue?
The kit used?
It's possibly used when cutting Klinkerite/ Cork jointing and it's not the half pound toffee hammer?

Re: Revenge C.R. Style

No push rods here, it's an old sidevalve engine, think from memory it was a Ford V8 pilot engine which was an old one even back in 1962 ish when this trick was performed on me. Tappet adjustment was either two screwed very thin locknuts or, believe it or not when no adjusters fitted measure the clea...

Re: Revenge C.R. Style

Well here's a bit of " wisdom " for Revolver concerning D W's remarks on V 8 petrols, way back when for me. His remark concerning plug lead swopping to generate a misfire took me back to my introduction to the old V 8 petrols. The old firm where I did my time had two slipways and the one t...

Re: Revenge C.R. Style

Revolver, When you do think about getting that Chiefs ticket should you go the " upmarket " route, i.e. Uni route take a tip from your uncle Merl. and ensure you don't end up with that BC endorsement. CEBC don't sound so good over here. Dave, Your remark about swopping leads takes me back ...

Re: Revenge C.R. Style

Noid light on when voltage signal transmitted by ECU. See scope voltage against time plotting. One injector per cylinder. Why did the BC have the wrong injector changed? Why did he interpret the diagnosis incorrectly? What was it he obviously didn't know? Why did he pay the penalty of blanking off t...

Wonder if any spalling of the balls/ rollers would be captured by the magnetic drain plug or do you need a GRP magnet?

JK, Hopefully still gathering those airmiles and seeking out all those BC's and over the side with them I say. BP, Hot on the trail here and definitely in the right area, bit more elaboration methinks? Revolver, " A major explosion taking place. " Of this statement there is one of these ta...
