#384786 Mini Wiper Set Up On A 2B

Posted by florin metal works on 11 May 2018 - 09:49 PM

If the scuttle already has the holes for the wiper spindles most of the layout is decided.   Should be able to fix the motor to the chassis rails on passenger side (needs brackets ) then cut & fit worm outer tube & wheel boxes -- don't fit or cut the inner spiral worm until happy -- a short piece of tube is needed out of the second wheel box for the excess worm to run in.   If the outer tube needs cutting to length a flare is needed to secure in wheelbox --- can be done with a centre punch to start & then ball-pein hammer.  Keep the run as straight as possible & use grease on spiral on  final assembly

Posted by florin metal works on 10 May 2018 - 06:52 PM

Hi all, Winterslow Village Fete have invited us once again.  Takes place on 16th June starting at 12 noon.  We would like a few (or many) cars to grace the field in aid of the local Scouts & Village Hall.

 

We shall have an evening BBQ for those attending or we can enjoy the live music at the Rec.   Or we could manage both.

 

Music continues 'til 11pm.

 

Names & cars attending please.




#384649 So Little Time So Much To Do ---- Part Two

Posted by florin metal works on 10 May 2018 - 07:50 AM

Got it in one Stephen, Geoffrey Newton died several years ago & we bought "Suilven" from her second owner & our instructor; John Hendry who had re-built & electronically set - up the compound engine.

We still have lots to learn, but what can possibly go wrong!




#384628 So Little Time So Much To Do ---- Part Two

Posted by florin metal works on 09 May 2018 - 11:37 PM

Had a wonderful holiday in Scotland playing on Loch Katrine -- a beautiful 12 mile stretch of crystal clear water, while you lot were pondering the future direction of our car club at the AGM, if you didn't go maybe time/distance or WHY prevented you voting. To be sure the club is directed by just those few (40) votes.   Hopefully the members will get what they dream of, & the renewed committee will take the club forward with an increase in clear management leading to more paid up members & events.  We shall still be around in Florin after our imminent trip to Spain, she still needs work on her smoking habit but has managed 50,000 miles on top of Sierra total so have not found the time to correct our blue haze yet.

This is Part Two --- a new direction/toy purchased very recently for my Birthday/Christmas/Anniversary by my girlfriend Sylvia.

"Suilven is a 26 foot 2 ton steam launch powered by a 10 hp compound engine; boiler runs at 200 psi fired by Welsh Dry Steam Coal,  she can make 9 knots when pressed ( uses a lot of steam )  In normal cruising she uses just 1 kg of coal per mile which costs around 20 pence. 

 

May be passing your way sometime just listen for her whistle.

#383962 Email From Stoneleigh

Posted by florin metal works on 30 April 2018 - 09:24 AM

Would have been better to have first of all relayed your concerns to the committee, Dan --- Keith could have then cleared the matter up or not

#383867 Corroded Battery -Ve Terminal

Posted by florin metal works on 28 April 2018 - 10:56 AM

Quite normal electrolytic action -- take apart -- clean & re-assemble bone dry -- then insulate from atmosphere with grease/petroleum jelly ( can you still get such stuff?)




#383764 Hog Roast At Stoneleigh?

#383501 Brighton Classic Car Show, June 3Rd

Posted by florin metal works on 25 April 2018 - 09:21 AM

Would like to attend Neil, BUT  we are already booked for that date --- will see if we can re-arrange dates.




#383458 Any Ideas What This Is?

Posted by florin metal works on 24 April 2018 - 04:23 PM

Not worth a great deal -- maybe a tenner --- RAFFLE PRIZE ??  ( Don't tell him it's worth considerably more )




#383445 Sad Day

Posted by florin metal works on 24 April 2018 - 03:03 PM

Sorry Lee, never knew the guy so didn't think it appropriate to comment. 




#383395 Eosb Discussions

Posted by florin metal works on 24 April 2018 - 07:43 AM

I would like to know what committee has done in the last 12 month.

So would I Phil, but the present situation is that if a committee member disagrees with others on management then they are excluded.  Just look at the response to my question above which only asked if an earlier date would be better IF it was during school holidays.

 

Was my question inflammatory ?

 

The comical reply asked if it should be after winter payment received --- where does that come from --- a man who should be able to confirm or otherwise as he still has school age children.




#382650 Rhocar Raffle No.2 March 2018

Posted by florin metal works on 03 April 2018 - 06:10 PM

They'll be wrapped in brown paper Bob, not any sort of glossy magazine...

He's not old enough for glossy magazines -- make sure the brown paper edges are suitably blunt.
