Got towed home on sat after loss of power and the engine eventually dying, fires up on easy ok start so tried the usual fuel related stuff until it got too dark, it pissed down all day yesterday so no looky, its a bit brighter today so now I'm just about to go and glare at the engine with a cup of coffee in my hand for ten mins to see if that works! :cry:

In Victorian times it wasn't unusual for a gentleman
To train his anus to weld the holes in his mk3/4/5 up
Thus leaving his hands free for important matters such as doffing his hat and retrieving items that a lady may of dropped on the floor :D

What is not Chinese now?
But six months ago I bought a generator from South Korea.
For about £ 90.
..............
It is cold and damp now, I use the machine a little and I don’t do anything with it.
