Another (desperate ) solution at the last knockings on a Maid of Kent boiler and the gas bottle is freezing up, is to enlist a helper to grab hold of the top of the bottle and give it a continuous good rocking. (from experience )

Purely by chance, I had been reading ME from 2000 and there is an article with diagrams of this very car.
|Thread: There may be a delay in some deliveries ...|
I assume that, just as when entering ports worldwide, the ship is under the command of the local pilots, who instruct the ship's crew..
|Thread: Low head Cap Screws|
Something which caught me out on the starter-motor on MrsD's mk1 Cortina in the early '70s. Go to start and Brrrrrp/Brrrrp/Brr-engage and start. I became quite adept at replacing the Bendix gear on the motor, 20mins job.
|Thread: Boxford spindle runout|
No, that's great for marking metal for layout/scribing/cutting lines/ centre-punch dots etc.
I have had the tube of this for 50yrs and not used up yet. marking blue, generally available from various suppliers.

Just picked up on your comment, you don't want 'layout blue' you need engineers/marking blue
|Thread: watchmakers lathe accuracy|
Slightly different, 'what's my line' and wonder if there are any remaining "sagger-makers bottom-knockers" still working in the Potteries ?
Ligne also = French/Swiss measure of diameter of watch movements, also 'French Inch'
|Thread: Antikythera solved ?|
Perhaps MichaelG, Neil and others may be interested in this piece from BBC today.

|Thread: Train snowplough at work in scotland|

|Thread: TOPIC VARIETY|
Colin, guilty as mentioned, I really enjoyed reading about your restoration/detective story, just as I followed DocG's V10 build but did not comment. In this case I would happily have clicked on 'like' but, tending to be a trifle verbose I rarely comment. Kudos to you and a tardy 'well done'
