And the red Land Rover has played up again, the grey one is in having PAS fitted so I'm using the red one. Fortunately, although it's up for sale, I haven't cleaned it out yet so there were still tools in it. Yet again it's the ignition system, back to a misfire. Checked the points which have probably done just over 100 miles and they were pitted badly. I gave them a clean and it was ok for about ten miles before doing it again. That time I swapped them and the condenser for new ones (which were in a box under the seat). This is not the first time this has happened, which is why I carry spares and put the tools back in it, I'm not sure where the spare coil has got to because that should have been there as well.

Conclusion is that new ignition parts are shit.


Get one of these:

Or whoever is your local supplier of Distributor Doctor parts.

Why? Well the problem with a lot of the condensers out there...

Cheers, it's bloody annoying to have had to say no. But I'd have ended up in a studio flat paying a load more than my house costs currently with nowhere for my bikes etc & that'd just piss me off.


Bugger:( still, Kudos for being the best candidate!!!!!

Getting a lot of cold callers at the door lately, the proverbial duster salesman, moneyexpert (who try and get you to change energy supplier on your doorstep - nothing to do with Martin Lewis's set-up) and of course the good old Jehova's witness (although they seem to target Mrs Egg more!).

Probably should go in the other questions fred, but does anyone use a 'piss off' sticker on their door and does it work?


I've been the man in a cheap suit trying to get people to change to Eastern Energy and I would ignore any sticker I could possibly claim not to have spotted.

Just the JW's being bothersome here. They keep comeing back however extreme my claimed views against religion are. "Can I just leave you a magazine then?" "No, I've got plenty of bog roll" etc

I don't answer my door if I'm not expecting anyone. Anyone who knows me has my mobile, therefore, I reason that anyone calling at the door is trying to rip me off, is the local murderer/rapist/thief or somone recruiting for a cult. Local weirdos seem to have got the message and don't bother any more.

I think Herne Bay gets a lot because it is gifferville and therefore they're looking for easy targets.

Saw a Motorhead Doc some time back. Lemmy answered the door wearing an ice hockey mask with the word "RAPIST" daubed on the front. Give it a go, I doubt they will accept any invites in for tea?

A couple of years ago I had a Jehovah's Witness come up to me and open his spiel with 'Excuse me sir, I can see you're busy, but I was wondering - can you honestly say that you believe in the progress of science and technology over the beneficence of an almighty God?'

I'd spent the previous 40 minutes leaning over my Xantia trying to smash stripped air box screws up with a hacksaw blade, a flathead screwdriver and a hammer. Closest I've ever been to joining a cult.

I miss my German Shepherd,I never had cold callers wanting to hang around. The bloke who trained us taught her a useful trick. She would sit calmly by me, but all I had to do was tweak her collar and she would jump up and down snarling and barking. You don't get the same reaction with a Spaniel

I wuz dead proud of ChodDog the Larger a week ago - he joined me at the front gate while I signed for a DPD parcel, quietly standing by my side - until DPD Boy idly touched the gate - when Larger went into full bark and snarl mode. The courier jumped out of his skin.

Conclusion is that new ignition parts are shit.

 

This seems true & rather annoys me as I've no intention of fitting electronic ignition on my Bonnie, it had three boyer bransons breakdowns in 6k as they died quicker the service time on points. I'd rather have a bike that works perfectly well than slightly, unnoticeably better timing till it breaksdown.

 

Just the JW's being bothersome here. They keep comeing back however extreme my claimed views against religion are. "Can I just leave you a magazine then?" "No, I've got plenty of bog roll" etc

 

Try harder!

I once answered the door to JWs in full bike leathers at a mate's house, oh & I was holding a carving knife & kept testing the edge too. I let them get started & interrupted with 'We're scarificing a goat, would you like to join the ritual?' the lack of an answer meant I added 'It was one of Mr Crowley's favourites'. Oddly they tried to leave so I followed them down the road asking if they knew where to get cheap goats....

 

They never came back to that entire road :D it's a game of bullshit bingo, if you win they are bad loosers.
