  2. l think every Australian is owed a free engine. regards Bruce
  3. 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
  4. Well there is a beware of aircraft sign on the road. regards Bruce
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Promised so much, delivered so little. regards Bruce
  8. 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
  9. Goodaye all Looking at the pic and the nuts missing makes me think they where not fixed propley and spun off causing the prop to wobble on the shaft, cause it to crack and off she goes. Loss of nuts in any instance is bad. regards Bruce
  10. 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
  11. l use fine felt tip pens, buy them in bulk. regards Burce
  12. 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
  13. Did you hear the new joke? What do you call a F35? A target. regards Bruce
  14. Goodaye all There seems to me there are statistics, facts and opinions mixed up in this. Facts would require engine failures against hours flown on all types GA and RAA With clear causes. Statistics are a tool to interpret facts, these can be skewed by bad and incomplete data. So can sometimes be useless. Opinions are formed both by hard facts and bad data, its is a indervidual's own perception of the data. Right or wrong its the inderviduals choice. l have a opinion on engines and base my choices on that, would like to see clear data either to reinforce my opinion or correct my mistake. One piece of information l would like to see is engine cost against failures? Cost does drive the choice of a engine. You get what you pay for, but thats only my opinion. regards Bruce
  15. Would it get 2000hrs TBO? l wont post the obvious qeustion on engine mounts. regards Bruce
