Re: Rotary partd

Hi JB. They are asking for suggestions for NEW parts to be made for//by them for Rotarys. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Give them your thoughts i.e. Rotor bearings side plates what ever. You never know if enough people want a part it may well happen. Nothing ventured nothing gained.

So as mine have only a minimal run out of 0.005 & 0.007 on the other disc I have requested that the front ...

Classic front springs

I suspect that a P O has changed/ messed about with the front springs on my Classic. Is their a way of beefing the front end up. On my Commander I cut the springs down then replaced the removed portion with a alloy billet. Any advice welcome.

Re: spark plugs

Hi J B You aren't the only one to suffer dodgy plugs. The Wiz team lost a plug in the 4 hour race. On first inspection at it looked ok, but then they saw that a small crack in the porcelain. Lost an hour spotting this.
