Re: in France - battery help

Yeah. Might need to go back to the tent for a year or so and try to get a promotion... will then definitely get back into it. Sad times but not really dwelling on it - there are more important things in life. Thinking might sell and buy a project if the right one comes along.

We went all over and right down to the South for what looks like our last trip in her.

I have just jump started from the new starter; if I keep them connected will both batteries charge... will they work in parralell (the origina...

Re: Couple of roll out canopy/awning questions

So, by way of some (hopefully) closure and in case anyone ever finds it useful.... I've been ruminating on this months!

Clutch - just checking

Hi all, I think the clutch needs changing so the question is am I safe with standard T25 clutch a-la: http://www.brickwerks.co.uk/index.php/clutch-t3-petrols-most-228mm.html ?
