  1. Hi Stuart,

    my flying club has decided to stop producing plastic membership  cards.

    I reckon this idea is worth considering for us too

      Hi Bob, I know, for the moment at least, we are keen to keep a membership card, we have made some changes though to reduce waste and costs.

      The Civil Setvice club in London which I was a member of gave a plastic credit card sized membership card initially and sent out stickers for the back every year you renewed.

      it presented a high quality front with simple sticker with the membership details on it.

    From personal experience DONT GO ANYWHERE NEAR SPECIALISED ENGINES Also check Dave Andrews site for another unbiased opinion. & Google "specialised engines reviews" If you dont mind a trip to "the Dark Side!" I can thoroughly recommend Dartford Rebore.....small family run business. http://www.dartfordreboreenginecentre.co.uk/

    Brake lock-up

    Make sure there is free play on the MC operating rod, when the brake pedal is released. Make sure the piston in the right hand caliper is free. If its not working 100% it would feel like the LHS is more sensitive

    John Hetherington had a few problems at IVA that nobody else seems to have encountered. He had a picky tester as you can see from his IVA write up. Heres a link to his build log http://johnskitcar.tonyhetherington.com/?page_id=138

    Robin Hood Paint Match

    Red is the worst colour ever. It fades really badly, so even if you find out what it was originally, it wont look the same as new paint. I had red & it had turned orange after 3 years, even being garaged all the time. Eventually I sprayed the nose & all 4 wings in Ferrari Testarosso red which was the nearest I could get. That still looks good after 7 years. Your idea of paint matching sounds like the best bet. Try a specialist automotive paint supplier, they will mix up a colour & fill a spray can for you.

    The Fairies In The Garage

    The petrol gets sucked into the cylinders. If theres a spark at the right time the engine WILL fire. It didnt, so its not a fuel problem. Recheck the timing as per richy's instructions.

    As you have a carb you wont have a crank sensor. Cross that one off. What happened when you poured petrol directly into the carb?

    Thanks for that Rich.... Ive seen a few trailers recently & it looks an amazing piece of work. I was planning to go see it at my local cinema this evening.....but I was worried that I would get upset in public....now I can get as upset as I like in private. & I will.
