The Don Kennedy Files

Almost worthy of its own section - but this information, donated to the RSSOC by Don covers a number of repairs and improvements Don carried out on his GTE.

Hi does anyone know where these have gone? The link is dead to me now but was fine just the other day. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Cheers

I suspect they are still to be moved to the new server (there was a move of everything which commenced Thursday). I think there's the same issue with the NE Noggin pages with the wiring diagrams.

There's a lot of information to be moved over - hopefully Ian will let us know when it's all complete.

Apart from the NE noggin site I think the Topic notifications may not be working at the moment as well.

The GTC register Site that I transferred to ScimWeb has disappeared too http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/~gtcregistrar/ .

I may have a backup if it's been lost.

I have not - just looked at it as I saw Corky had added to the conversation.

Brilliant, well done!

I want to try the ball jointed gear linkage that DK wrote up in such detail. Just waiting until my driveway is dry enough for spending a few hours under the Scim.
