Re: Constantly flooding when trying to cold start

I have read that: "Larger batteries of the same type and voltage hold more energy, measured in Watt-hours, which is simply their rated Amp-hours times their voltage. So they take longer to charge at the same voltage and amperage."

Re: HS2 Carburettor rebuild - Float issue

Re: My 'Modern' during lockdown...

It looks like your tent peg was galvanised. If it was, you should be careful to grind the galv off before welding as the fumes produced are toxic.
