Hi agen.

Thanks for that. I've actually been looking for a "tickler" set up, but they appear to be rarer than hens teeth. So I guess I'll have to make one.

I've actually got the monobloc as described by you.

 :)Greetings all.

What carb should I have on my 1963 A50. Currently have a monobloc fitted. One book says monobloc and another says 626/19 concentric.
Still on the bench with another few months(years?????????) to go, so no rush to change it if its wrong.

So any input very welcome.

Thanks a zillion.

Good morning all.

I am contemplating a trike as I can't get on and of anymore.  Of course a move like this comes with all the usual "buts"

So I was discussing it with a friend of similar age and problems.

His answer    Adventure before Dimensia. 

Guess that about says it all

Good morning.

Hi Arthur. That would be bril. I;m always interested in any Beesa and others of course. So I'd love to take you up on that.

Hi Julian, Yes its in a straight line. Of course I know what the alternative is.

Thanks to you both again.

 Hi Arthur

 Thanks for that. I thought it might just be that simple but knowing makes a difference.

On a completely different note. I just realised that I cannot recall ever seeing a "Dandy";
so would there be any chance of 'viewing' yours one day?

Thanks agen

Hi ..

I have a query regarding M20 engine No's.

My WM20 engine No as stamped on it is: -  WM20 B190MS10033   This does not make sense to me (or to anyone else at this stage)so any help would be great.  The frame No is WM20 110933  which the Military Museum tells me is 1944 .

Mike :)

I agree the last post entirely and as Arthur this is "with held" info. However for the sake of a second class stamp I always believe its worth a go.

Worst case is you are in the same situation.

Hi. 8)
If you fill in the DVLA form 888 and ask the right questions, DVLA  MIGHT be prepared to supply you with the details of the current owner.

Its only a chance but worth a try.

Mike :D :D :D

I had my A65T done many moons ago, because it was a newish thing but I never actually found or felt or in any way noticed any difference.  (Dont own it now so not up to date).
I've just had my A50 done to bog standard spec. There are many good local engineers out there trained in exactly the same way as those at SRM etc. Word of mouth is still as good as anything.

I've had this problem and I asked the organisers to send my contact details to the stall holder. Took a bit of time but it worked. Depends how helpful the organisers wish to be. Mike
