Re: Registration-number

Hi Jannes,

No, if the owner moved from one county to another (eg Essex to Devon), or even from England to Scotland, the registration number would not necessarily change.

Maybe the owner was a Mr Norbert Oswald Atkinson?

W2000 for sale

Have a look at this Deek coming up for sale at the NMM at the end of the month.

https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1131827

Clearly, Classic 044 is not alone at being rebadged as a BSA??

Very odd, some people ……

PS/ Many thanks to Ian Wegner for alerting me to this.

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!!!

Re: French Advancer

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?
