Certainly sounds like a bug.

Good luck Mike and thanks for your efforts with the board service provider.

Re: My Damascene Conversion

Wish I could go fast enough to drive too close to somebody.

Usually they are vanishing into the distance :)

Re: How to post a photo

Just a comment.

Number of pixels (e.g. 1024x560) isn’t directly related to the file size (e.g. 16kb).

Think size of a bucket and weight of a bucket if you like. There’s a connection, but depends what’s in the bucket.

Anyone having trouble may like to try this:

Re: engine runs backward

If I am not very much mistaken, some two-stroke mini-cars had to be started with the engine running in the reverse direction when the driver wants to move the vehicle backwards. I think the Gogomobil is an example. Perhaps the Messerschmitt 3-wheeler?. Don In the late 1950s - early 1960s Bond Minic...

Re: engine runs backward

There have been loads of instances of broken hands and wrists with a back-fire while hand cranking an engine. I have seen the effect of a starting handle which struck the person after one reverse revolution - it broke his arm. I also remember the crank handle of a stationary engine flying some 8-10...

Re: engine runs backward

I would not have thought true backward running was possible in the a series. I guess a pressurised cylinder reaching the top of the up stroke when you let the clutch out in reverse could slowly push back down again, but that’s just half an engine rotation. Could explain it if the forward creep is ve...

Still looks infinitely better than mine.

Re: NEW - can't post photos

Can't blame you for being frustrated - these image posting issues are becoming more and more tiresome. I thank you for remaining civil though, as I can't help but feel more cooperative with that rather than some of the posts we've had in the past :lol: . Getting to the bottom of this is bloody diff...

happy at 70 mph all day. Have not managed to break anything yet, but I'm working on it. That's impressive Brian. I had you down as a low mileage Minor driver but, on that basis, and depending on how long your day is, even just an eight hour day will see you cover 560miles which certainly beats my r...

Re: Replacement engine

Go for it!

Ive got a Marina 1275 on a 5 speed Celica box. Front Marina discs and vertical shocks all round. Standard diff, toughened half shafts.

Not the fastest Moggy around but works very well for me and happy at 70 mph all day.

Have not managed to break anything yet, but I'm working on it.
