EU fuel labelling

I've just discovered - Fuel pumps in Europe are being relabelled to avoid confusion, apparently.
Here's the link:

Happy reading.

Silverstone Classic 2019

:D Thanks for getting back.
Not sure I want to be on the Porsche stand, even though I qualify for infield parking; one other club I'm in will be there too, but I'd rather be in with the Reliant mob, thanks! 8)

White SSI in Eversley Cross

On the way back from the White Lion meeting, Hertford Bridge this morning around 10.45, a white SSI going towards Camberley, the opposite direction to me, so I only caught a glimpse.

SE6A engine lifting....

I'm more than happy to use properly-sized wooden blocks to support cars; the safety issue arises if you use thermalite or breeze blocks - these can collapse without warning.

I've been receiving emails offering early booking discount for this.
Is the Club having its usual presence? Is Kev O going to organise us?
Can you put us on the attendee's list please. :D

Login password issues

I think I had this problem a while back. It is because the shopping bit and the Forum use different log-in details. I'd guess you've changed your Forum log-in details, but still have the original log-in for shopping, so all you need to do is remember what your other log-in details are. At least I th...

'74 SE5a rolling resto

The Watts linkage across the diff looks a bit "non-standard" to me - is there a reason? And as you say, the ground clearance is somewhat reduced as a result.

Back to points, new dizzy, diagrams please?

The white and yellow comes from the live to the coil, and then there is only one wire, it runs from the other side of the coil to the dizzy (and inside the dizzy to the contact breaker). Doesn't matter what colour it is! :D On mine it is brown, too, but after 50-odd years I expect it has been replac...

Barry "Whizzo" Williams

I read today that Barry Williams passed away on 8th September;
I met him briefly, I think it was at Castle Combe; very cheerful he was, too.
Long may we remember him.

Wheel bearing gliding on the front axle?

Revington TR does a shim set and spacer to go on the stub axle between the bearing inners, so that you can torque up the axle nut rather than leaving it slightly slack; Have a look here: https://www.revingtontr.com/search.asp?for=wheel%20bearing%20shim&cartype=tr4 NTDWM, just think they are a good i...

I assume you've already tried Kevin at Zodiac Services 01322 439666
Also, I seem to think there are two types, a vane and a two-gear type, with the vane type being better at low speeds, but I might be wrong.
