    Zetec Swirl Pot

    Florin's swirl pot is home made from copper--- is mounted in the engine bay--- L/P pump supplies swirl pot as per Nigel's pics --- continuously circulating fuel doesn't get hot so no bother. (Didn't like the idea of high pressure fuel in the tunnel)

    Would someone up-stairs please amend the date for the Southern Hoods Christmas Party? I'm sure I said the 2nd December & the text says so ----- but it's been entered as happening TODAY. Hammer & nails is my preferred choice --- not this smoke & mirrors.

    Stainless Steel Bonnet

    4.5" angle grinder & a 1mm thick disc for stainless steel, provided the disc is kept cutting & not rubbing there is very little heat build-up. Cut dozens of metres through 0.7--0.9--1.2mm & thicker s/steel without discolouration.

    Mark's Birthday

    Please give a quiet thought for Mark Bruce on his birthday --- we lost a great man & club leader nearly 5 years ago. Emma & the two boys lost a loving husband & father --- may she continue to be so strong & the lads as cheeky. Will always miss his leadership.

    "and a Passenger " --- shared bodily warmth is the way to go but not while driving Mark.

    Being careful with money we used the Sierra heater matrix & the motor with one squirrel cage fan removed,(from the donor) but your easy fix will be to continue with the mini equipment I guess.

    Throttle Cable Routing

    Your pics at the top of this post presumably show the throttle position at rest/closed so there should be enough inner cable to effect a join clear of the outer sleeve adjuster/bulkhead fitting. A small sleeve with just a hole through it to take the old & new piece of inner cable will make the join. Slide the inners into the sleeve then close up the through hole by hammering a small blunt punch to the side in two or three places. Silver solder would be an alternative if cables can be well cleaned.

    Throttle Cable Routing

    If you can't change the cable is a shorter route possible ? Then the outer of the cable could be cut to give more "free" inner cable.
