    Silver top to blacktop

    I couldn’t get a 1.8 so had to go 2.0 ltr route. I have only done around 10 miles up to now and it’s in for re-map tomorrow and if all goes well will run it in on Saturday so will report back afterwards.

    Zetec starter motor - the bolts...

    I had the same problem with all the bolts ,starter and bell housing ,I think they had been put in with loctite retainer! I had to heat the bell housing to quite a high temp and still they were hard work to get moving.

    fancy one of these

    Sorry to hear it still troubles you. I read the aaib report this morning and it’s a familiar read, the high temps did you no favours and also 65 ltr tank on a 503 engine ! The twin tank system meant you could at least take a tank out and have less fuel weight and with 15/20 ltrs in the running tank it looked like plenty but put 20 ltrs in a 65 ltr tank and you would think it will run out taxying. Did you have Westfield’s before the accident or have changed the Adrenalin source? l bought my Westy a year ago after 38 years and 3600 hours flying and can honestly say I am enjoying it more than flying especially as Julie, wife, joins in which she never did whilst I was flying. I haven’t flown since October and sold my plane and hangar soon after,Istill have my license and carry out permit renewals but am not missing flying one bit,that’s down to the westy I think. Maybe we’ll get out to the North East in it one day ,l will give you a shout if we do! all the best Jim
