Halfords don't seem to have the facility - surprise surpirse but proper tyre/battery shops should be able to drop test it.

Re: SS1 Ti Flat battery

I very much doubt if you can check each battery cell as suggested - with current batteries you cannot get at them. Checking with a voltmeter is also not much use. You need to get an ammeter in the line - most meters have an ammeter function. Disconnect the +ve terminal and put the meter in between t...

Re: 1800Ti misfire at high revs?

Drill the screw heads off then you can get the what's left with mole grips - small ones - and after you have soaked the screws in plus gas. What did you clean the leads with ? may have damaged them so you may need a new set.

wandering mail?

I posted a mail this morning around 9.30 and it seems to come and go from the mail lists - is it just me/mine or has anyone else noticed this coming and going. The title is "June and the International"
