The Wolf 3D has some lovely features - at the time it was much more flexible than most other options so I imported it from Australia! Hope the swirl pot fits ok where it was designed to go. I'm not sure if I mentioned it before but y...

Re: mysterious electric - less voltage?

There's a thick earth strap that goes to the block underneath the carbs. Mine corroded up after I degreased the engine.

I just unbolted it, cleaned it up and covered it in grease again :-)

The LED sidelight / rear bulbs I tried a few years back were dimmer than standard and went straight in the bin!

Lots of cool parts - I don't know why you sold your Excel it was how I want mine. Due to work, I need a diesel commut...

Re: Manifold blessings

I fitted a whole Double S system and it was too short. No particular piece was massively out but when added up it was nearly 2" out. I sent the Y piece back and they lengthened it to my measurements.

Original is best if you can get it!

The window frame is un-reserved and up for grabs again.

I'll be packing up and working out shipping quotes over the weekend...

Thanks,
