Re: Mid-summer Bits and Bobs

Always good to see Keighley, I have a cluster of cousins around there, Settle as well though dad was born the other side of the river in Giggleswick, grandparents are buried at the village church. Quite a local then, eh? No rain here either and it's 29C at the moment. Lots of watering to do tonight...

Re: Dellorto FHC2013A Carburetor

Surprised you can get Tecumseh parts!
Could nd get a replacement fuel tank unless shipped from the USA, shipping then being 75% of the costs.
Fortunately I got a full engine, "working take off from a buggy" for £10.

Re: Hose Fittings

Copper central heating pipe and jubilee clips for joining sections of hose. The plastic stuff for either end just doesn't last and metal fittings are rare & expensive.
