  1. This is of interest to me too. Old gaskets had asbestos in them I believe. Do the new ones? I am pretty sure the Goetze ones don't.
  2. The actual reverse switch could be the culprit, just gone high resistance, by a few ohms. The fact you have a solid 12V at the switch and doesn't fail when fuel lock is on suggests this.
  3. you have a high resistance point somewhere. for a 21W bulb, that means I = 21W / 12 = 1.75A That is an equivalent bulb resistance of R = 12/1.75 = 6.8R so if you have only a few ohms resistance somewhere, it will seriously drop voltage across the bulb. Could be a crimp connector, oxide layer on a connector, etc... A multimeter has an input resistance of a Megohm or more, so the current it draws is insignificant if you measure the volts at the bulb end, so no IR drop.
  4. Maybe the difference is 'with' and 'from' Covid?
  5. Hi Dan, Yeah, one of those things you may or not use. Happy to relieve you of it, as a reference, SJ has them for £20, but let me know what you think is fair, and some postage of course. I tried to send you a PM, but apparently you can't receive messages? cheers, Clive My 502 has foam just on top surface between chassis and shell.
  6. Nup, quite the opposite, very conservative, right leaning, with a Pentacostal PM. The States are a variety of Labor and Liberal(read Tory), Victoria being Labor and the major lockdown state.
  7. Do you need it Dan?, mine is badly bent and is on the list of things to fix, if it's just doing nothing!
  8. That is a fantastic bit of history, and a nicely written one. Love the descriptive words, really paints a picture. Thanks for posting.
  9. Des Hammill How to build and power tune weber and dellorto DCOe, DCO/SP & DHLA carburettors is very useful. from and floats are critical, set once, then again and again. worth the effort. good luck.
  10. It is a Perspective article (available from within the extract page), I assume it is meant to be something digestible by a wider audience than focused experts. Intended for a professional audience, eg: doctors, of whom one showed it to me. It is peer reviewed, so should pass the BS filter It references 20 papers, which are based on science. If you choose to ignore @mg4lotus, fine, but others may have differing opinions.
  11. So is that supposed to help? The NIH isn't a crackpot conspiracy site, it is a US government funded organisation to the tune of over $40 billion. My original statement holds I believe.
  12. Gold, was it published on April 1st?
  13. This doesn't encourage me.
  14. Those magnets look neat, did you make the brackets and heatshrink magnets to them?
  15. that just discriminates the colour blind!
