    I started off by removing the bolts arrowed sorry the top one isn’t in the photo but you’ll see it if you look at the covers. I then removed the gear change lever, and the two bolts holding the sprocket cover. The one I’m on in the photo is the hardest thing you will do on the whole job, there...

My camping history is somewhat distant and usually consisted of army surplus tents from the Biafrian period (late 60s) so the chance to get my...

    May I respectfully pass on a tip from this afternoon's fuel pump fitting. As others have pointed out, fitting the rectangular pump in the round rubber thingy is far from easy. I solved this by tying four laces around the rubber bit and attaching them to the metal railings outside my house, then...
