  1. Goodaye all The cancer scare was a missdiagnoses. It took 3 PET scans all said l had it. 4 biopsys, 3 of which were inconclusive. The last one which they knocked me out for they went for a lump and it was ordinary scare tissue. Told to go away and have a happy life.? Most stressful 8 weeks ever. regards Bruce
  2. Goodaye all Still around and healthy. l did have one of my hips fail and cause some metal poisioning, back on my feet and the the metals are slowly getting out of my system. Hopefully get my medical back around Easter. Some of the symptons were very nasty, not that l noticed.? Due to the hip no work on the Couger the last 12 months. Revising the fuel system to one 80lt tank and removing the back seats. regards Bruce
  3. l think every Australian is owed a free engine. regards Bruce
  4. Didnt notice that, l'll have to wait for the larger model. Does that mean l have to update the Mr Fusion? or use the reactor l have in the Bat cave. regards Bruce
  5. l have had one on order with Jaycar for ages. Flux Capacitor | Jaycar Electronics Shows its the big boys who get looked after. regards Bruce
  6. Goodaye all Passed my class 2 a couple of weeks ago, was talking to the DAME and he said all the testing for Ausroads will be the same. So you might as well just get the class 2. regards Bruce
  7. Goodaye all l should have a artical l wrote for a car club somewhere. Basically the oil companies got rid of a zinc additive because it destroyed catalyic converters when ULP was introduced. This was sneekerly done in the 80's with many new engines knocking lobes off the cam, and the car makers didnt realize why this was happening. l'll try and find it and post it up. regards Bruce
  8. Goodaye all Jaycar are still out of Flux capacitors, when they come in l'm going to blow this town. Flux Capacitor | Jaycar Electronics regards Bruce

  10. Goodaye all l think the aircraft the F35 was ment to replace will be replacing it. How many super hornets could we have purchased for the same cost? Who is our threat and l am sure the Hornets would outclass anyone in our region? Huge waste of our money. regards Bruce
  11. Had a problem on a Holden V8 with carbon build up, raised the compression a lot, burnt out starters and finely backfired destroying the carbureter. Then it managed to suck a piece of the carby into the engine, heads off. Thats when l found it was carbon buildup that caused the problem, 3mm thick. With that much carbon there was no damage to the piston. Back together and it was all good. l was blaming modern starters as being cr#p. regards Bruce
  12. l use fine felt tip pens, buy them in bulk. regards Burce
  13. Goodaye Just saw Sully at the cinema, what a great movie. Tom Hanks was a a good choice and directed by Clint Eastwood so l did expect it to be good. Made me wonder how true it was, it comes accross as factural but.... It seemed to me they were looking for someone to blame. regards Bruce
  14. Goodaye You can drive a bus without a medical as long as you dont get paid. So killing free passengers is ok but not paying ones. As someone that will loose his medical when l get my first hip revision l am sure l am going to made to jump through hoops to get it back. Plan B stick with RPL regards Bruce
  15. Did you hear the new joke? What do you call a F35? A target. regards Bruce

  18. Acturley tried a turn back last week. Declared 2000ft ground and attempted it at 3000ft Lost 400ft climbing clean and 500ft with flaps, learnt a lot. Consider better options at 1000ft to 1200ft. regards Bruce
  19. And then they cry when they dont make any money and go bust. regards Bruce
  20. Goodaye all Broke my golden rule today. One project at a time. Purchased a Genuine LJ GTR Torana, its in bits but the bodywork is done. New double carport built, l will be shuffling a few cars around to put the Couger fuselage in the carport while l get a start on the wings. The Couger take's priority. l will collect a few missing bits on the GTR in the meantime. Bonnet, boot lid and front seats, would be interested in any bits and pieces. regards Bruce
  21. Use to be able to buy genuine Lucas smoke in a jar. Lucas, Price of darkness. regards Bruce
  22. Goodaye all Yes l suffer from Billy Cart syndrome, l have to really concentrate on using the rudder when flying. Also have the scares on he knees to prove it. regards Bruce
