Some cretin is sending emails purporting to be from this website. They are spineless anonymouse computer geeks with nothing better to do and have nothing to do with me. I will never send an email from the website address so if you have received one delete it!

Information Guides

Bosch K-Jetronic Mechanical Fuel Injection System - Idiots Guide
A simplified, hopefully easy to follow, visual guide to the workings of this well known
and widely used mechanical fuel injection system as fitted to a whole host of 80's cars.

This has proven to be a highly popular feature of this website.

 

 

 

 

Other Stuff

'CANOPUS'
De Haviland DH106 Comet 4c - XS235

A photographic mini-survey of what was the worlds last airworthy Comet before her retirement in 1997.

The Comet was, amongst many other firsts, the worlds first jet airliner from the golden age of British aviation
when we were still world leaders. This particular aircraft was the latest variant and I believe was the third to last
off the production line taking its maiden flight in 1963.

 

Smiler.
