Bon soir Bob

why not remove the apron completely and remove and clean the half nuts?

Using UPS through parcel2go I sent  some stuff  15kgs to Moscow in stuck in Russian customs

when using UPS through p2go the ups tracker number is shown.

UPS where in almost daily contact with me until the problem was solved last week.

assuming it’s not a racing Special we are talking about, then making the flywheel lighter, then it means

surely it’s nicer to have an old engine running like a sewing machine on tickover?

why not leave the teeth on?

(both me and my 1933 Morris 10 have all our teeth )
