Re: Newbee

@fleeting contact That's a great mod with the remote fuel tank filler cap. For those of us not racing I don't get the whole need for a bigger tank thing, what's wrong with just throwing a petrol can in the boat and filling up the gull as required? petrol can.jpg There was someone on here with an Aus...

Re: Small hole(s) in exhaust pipe in 40 series

Were the holes multi purpose, at what stage of the process were the exhausts plated? Did the exhaust tube arrive in plated in full long lengths and was then cut or, did the steel arrive in bare and was then cut and plated? I don't want to derail the thread, just curious if anyone knows. Could the ho...

Re: sd on ebay

When Jon started saying, this and that had been changed, it got me to thinking is this actually the one that John Williams sold in November 2013. Maybe John Williams sold a different SD other than the one in November 2013. If you click on the "John Williams" picture and zoom in, you can just about m...

Re: Pleasure & Pain

5/16 BSF ?
