thanks for that GB
got to wonder how many fingers that guy had left when he retired.

I remember older guys (when there was some) telling about starting  (Fowler I think) diesel engines with a cartridge, you pop it in and hit it with a hammer, bit quicker

All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco
