    Mornin' all

    Sprinkling of snow overnight so it all looks like fairyland.

    Brain still hurting with yesterdays wrestle with the birdsnest of wires under the bonnet of my 'other car' where the main loom used to reside.
    40 years plus of owners 'patching in' overlong & overrated wire with garishly coloured terminals inadequately crimped. and those dam tiewraps!
    Next job is to source a supply of bullet and spade terminals and then redo all of the connectors.
    Gave up working outside eventually after a further 20 frustrating minutes trying to fit 8 new cylindrical fuses into the original fusebox with numb fingers.
    I know when I'm beaten .. I think.

    This is for you Nick if you read this .....

    Have a spiffing day everyone!

    Mornin' all!

    There's a nip in the air today (as the Yanks observed one day in the 1940's in Hawaii) but it's onward & upward today.

    Many many fine tasks to be done like the alternator - desoldering the phase wires from the rectifier.
    Memories from the past - and even today the solder won't melt normally, is it a tempering process over years of use I wonder? I'm pretty sure they used 'hard' solder at the factory but although the surface melts even a mega iron will not free the wire. Scientific butchery required here as Scotchlocks won't do it! Please avert your eyes if you are of a sensitive nature!

    Can anyone tell me if the 'Fox' and 'Easter Compton' Alfa meets are still taking place? Nick said it would be up to the new AROC organiser but I have been unable to find out (probably because I don't do Farcebook!)
    I guess we could just carry on if not, if anyone's up for it?

    Have a fun packed day everyone!
    Peter

    Morning, off over to the machine shop shortly to pick up what I am hoping is a fixed 2.4 JTDm cylinder head for my Brera. Pinkies crossed.
