I have spoken to the farmer who is cutting our hay and he says he will cut it in a week or so depending on weather.

We will be ready for another FoD open weekend in August with the use of our 10 acre field. I am thinking 22/23 Aug but if there is an overwhelming majority for a different weekend that would be find with me.

Yes your lad, a great photo for advertising our event and he is most welcome to visit again.

He may come with me next time. Thank you,I'll tell him that because he appreciates folk taking time for him. Something his mum never did and part of the reason why he now lives with me.

Have fun at the open weekend, it’s my eldest nieces 12th birthday so will be going there ( In our bubble). I may * ( who knows at the moment ) be visiting north wales in a fortnight and could possibly drop the 1988 period Philips radio cassette off on the way home. It’s been in the boot since February!

Everything has slowed down, just when it is convenient to you.

This any use to you for any of your Citroen projects?

Solex 32BISA carb, used once for about five miles as an experiment.

Originally specified for a 1100 Chrysler/Talbot Horizon I believe...which suggests to me it's probably common to a bunch of PSA stuff from that era...hence might be useful for you.  Just let me know if it's likely useful, if so will bring it over next time I'm over your way.  If not it can disappear into the pile of stuff in the back of my garage for another few years.

Looks new buts slightly used, like its been a demo unit or something or it could be Ballsed.  Any use in the fleet before the bin?

POWER!!!!!

Never heard of the brand, but I see it has jack pin.

It looks useful to me as I am more keen to fit Radio/cass than Radio/CD in appropriate cars.

I want another battery like I had last time and 2 x 20 LTR blue antifreeze please.

It does look like the size of carb the Visa Cab and LNA use. Just the screw holes for the air filter etc are different.

Did the 100 fit the Mondeo?

Yep. Sure did. Fits like it grew there. A fraction longer and it wouldn't have gone in. Now starts instantly at the first touch of the starter even after standing for a week.

Good to hear.  Drop a message if you need any service parts/ oil for the Mondeo.
