    As I have experienced previously when reasonbly challenged over a disappointing/strange decision the SSOT close ranks and blame the customer! This is water under the bridge and it cannot be changed, all we can hope for is less strange decisions in the future! No more from me on the subject of Blyton classes! How about advising the decision for the photographer at Loton or not! The AO from Devon was at Gurston on Sunday and he has put some great pictures up on YouTube, perhaps he will allow you to those up on the Gallery if you ask? G

    Never thought I'd say this, it's too hot to drive a Westfield today

    Very nice! Here is Flo my 5 year old loving the Winter ride out. I use an inflatable 'Bumbo' booster seat from Halfords and switch the harness behind the seats to make sure they are closer on the shoulders. Her two favourite phrases are 'Louder, Daddy, Louder' and 'Put the pedal to the metal' - obviously I have no idea where these come from?

    This I don't know, it had fairly new oil when I bought it, so I've not changed it since. I've got some 20W50 in the garage, waiting for the first change.

    Perhaps you should re-read your post and realise how it can be intepreted! Of course we need other clubs to help make any event viable but I believe you could have slotted other club entrants into our class structure without any major issues! End of posts on this matter as it is now in the past! G
  12. @Chris Broster - Bristol & Bath AO Perks indeed. I had the zetec. Went for a haircut everyone in the shop loved it, all came outside and had a look. Then went for a drive round the local area. Fantastic evening for it. Shame I'm now stuck in the office. Maybe one day I'll get my own I didn't take an images this time. Next time I'll be sure to take a few. The first few times I took a car out for a drive it was pictures galore. I'm wanting to take my boy out in it. Would love to see his face light up.

    I have just had to replace the spark plugs because they were carboned up. I actually went down to three cylinders before I replaced them. When I bought it it was running very rich, so the local garage adjusted it. So I put the carbon on the plugs down to that. The new plugs have only been in for 10 miles or so, but I'll have a look (as well as a smell of the dipstick. The oil level is closer to full than it is to being low, but not reading over.

    Help with Early SE Narrow and how to fill the gearbox oil

    The early build manuals told the builder to cut a hole in the footwell for access to the gearbox filler, at least for the type-9.

    What oil are you running? Before switching to 20W50 mineral oils, my xflow ran on 5W30 (previous owner recommended) and it was just burning the stuff. If you run too low viscosity oils, it doesn't do it's job and it gets far too hot.

    Weather's still looking hot. I'm planning to get away around 4 this aft. Its a 4hr + journey, so I should arrive at the circuit about 8. Time to bang up my little tent, relax and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. (No chance! )

    Graham To make it crystal clear everybody involved with managing and organising the Blyton trackday, tuition and the sprints unanimously agreed on the class structure and the use of our photographer. We looked at financial issues and the viability of the event. So the relevant Committee members and the SSOT members running the event made the best decisions on behalf of the club . You might not personally agree with them but I cant do anything about your opinion.

    I understand your frustration John as you have clearly illustrated the decisions made at Blyton

    Last time I had this amount of crankcase venting regarding capacity, it was on a non even cranckase pressure engine (non 4 pot), piston rings were past their best. But I don't know hands on (yet) how the xflow breathes. On the video, besides the smoky shade, it's the sheer volume of atmospheric release that raises at least 50% of my eyebrowns. I would do two quick tests. Remove a spark plug and take a pic. Take the oil level dip thingy, and smell the oily bit. If the first looks oily, if the second smells like fuel, well, there might be some general lack of goodwill in the piston rigs area. I don't know if the xflow is prone to wear its valve stem seals, but it's generally wishful thinking when the rings are toast. Maybe the oil level is a bit too high ?

    Just for your information the cost of photography is minimal. At Blyton the Friday trackway was free. For the 2 Sprint days at we paid £28 per day which was inclusive of the guy travelling backwards and forwards between Leeds and Blyton each day. The photos are our copyright and will be published on the website.

    What provocation? Seriously, how does a rational explanation get construed as provocation?
