Re: clio diesel

You just need to disconnect the connection to the plug and, with the meter on a low resistance (ohms) range, measure the resistance between the connector on the plug and the body of the plug where it screws into the cylinder head a good plug will show about one ohm, much more than that and it's duff.

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Slightly off topic, but I also have a Huawei P Smart phone and I find it very impressive. Much better piece of kit than the Samsung I had before. I can't help but wonder how the embargo on using American technology will affect them though.

Re: breakdown truck

You'll probably find that with that sort of power the batteries last for about 20 miles and take three days to recharge :D You're probably right, but the speed that technology goes at these days, it will only be a matter of time. Back in 1986 I saw my first ever mobile phone, this fellow had, what ...

Re: #GenevaInternationalMotorShow #CANCELLED

Ah! A telephone No. 746, if you got that in 1968 it must have been one of the very first. Back in the day, before touch tone dialling became commonplace, you could use an acoustic sender which you held to the mouthpiece of your wind-up phone to send the necessary tones down the line. They were gener...

I'm wondering if the Practical Classics Restoration Show is going to suffer the same fate in a month's time.

Re: What would you buy & why?

My speculative guess for future electric power is something akin to today's fossil fuel. You drive for a given distance, two or three hundred miles, pull into a garage, lift out your batteries and replace them with charged batteries, pay your money and off you go. It sounds fanciful now, but how fa...
