The other notable for me was the Gordini - only ever seen one other at 'other club' rallies around here............Slightly more original?

Absolutely honestly, I wondered about that - as usual, about a nanosecond after I hit the Send button! :roll:
As a matter of interest, are all makes fem. or is it a case of either you know or you don't?

SS1 Mixture & Running

It was just that it looks, feels and sounds like metal ( so it must be a duck..... :lol: ) Next time I'm in amongst, I'll check further, but it's not broken anyway (yet), so I'm not worried there. A side issue I have thought of, which the Bible doesn't mention: when replacing the bi-metal strip hous...

PFW 337V

This may be a false memory, but I seem to think that sucking on the diz tube won't make the baseplate move - you just haven't enough suck. When working haven't you got six big pots whacking the mixture in at a helluva rate, so it's no wonder. Now somebody'll come on and say 'I do it all the time'......
