New to me - 5a GER

Bleeding useless things anyway.

Never on when they should be on (which is rarely) and never off when they should be off, which in some cases is the rest of the year, having accidently switched it on in the first case.

Lovely colour.

Hurumph

Engine mounts

Its for a road car. But the ones I fitted a couple of years ago, did not seem to last either...From a well known supplier. They distorted quite alarmingly.

Seems, rubber is not what it used to be...

Not sure if you can tell in the picture, although I did allude to it, but the nylon band, underneath tooth to the left of the crack, has come away from the metal subassembly. The failure mode, as far as I can see, is that the nylon band will come unstuck underneath the next tooth, etc. until there i...

SE5A Project - Swindon

So I have been slowly stripping my spare engine to take a look see what the 'funny noise' was that forced its removal from its previous home. The engine itself was, apparently a recent recon, with limited miles and good oil pressure. So I thought it might be worth the risk. Having removed the heads ...

Big End Shells bearings

Okay, I am pulling an engine apart to investigate its serviceability. The engine was pulled as it was 'making a noise', a knock, apparently. Many theories were put forward, but nobody really knew, until the engine was stripped. So hear we are. The engine is on a stand, the heads are off and the pist...

Went to the aerospace museum at TQali today, to see some old British aircraft, then on to Mdina. Day of rest tomorrow.

Mark, still going to need that overdrive we spoke about earlier and a new indicator stalk. Sort something out soon.
