Re: NGK Spark Plugs

John,

You may relax as the NGKs held by the ROC came from NGK themselves!!

Champion’s UG80PV was mentioned in the last club magazine; do you want some?

Re: KM48 owner in Australia

I have had similar with the W2000’s KC27 engine.

The ‘rubbing’ surface of the eccentric shaft broke up / pitted where it ran in the bearings, giving the awful sound you describe.

Maybe strip it down to see if your shaft has these pits?

Re: spark plugs

I have had a response to the article in the latest mag.

One member has expressed an interest in ten of the UG80PV plugs for his IP2.

Anyone else? Remember it’s a box of 100, so only another 90 to go!!!

Last saw this in the flesh many years ago when it belonged to a chap who lived next to the Mid-Hants Railway; could it have been Medstead? It was, as I recall, a rather er, distinctive, metallic lime green colour.

Re: My "Sign Off"

Because ‘ride’ is is verb .... a ‘doing’ word .... and an adverb describes how the verb is done .... and usually ends in ‘LY’.... eg/ quickly, slowly, safely, noisily, busily, etc you get the picture?

In ‘be safe’ I would consider ‘safe’ to be an adjective?

I had something similar with my 'oil-injection' W2000 Geoff a few years ago; never with the petroil one. I wondered if it was the 25:1 mix that was lubricating the piston in the carb, absent in the o/I version? Just a smidgeon of oil in with the fuel (Rotella 30 or 40, or Silkolene 2T I think it was...

Re: exchange rate

The official Euro exchange rate is standard through the EU but banks etc will each have their own rates, just as in the UK where it’s wise to shop around to find the best deal.

Why on earth do you not use ‘plastic’ when you’re abroad John? You will get the best rate of exchange by doing so!
