You need a sense of humour having Dollies. Has yours upset you in some way?

Tony.

Infantile, maybe.
Pathetic, could be.
Constructive, not likely.

Funny? Definitely.

How is the battery looking Dave?

Trevor is correct. That's enough of the thread hijack guys.


Why not start a thread in the general section where you can pursue your interest in playing with words
without clogging Dave's thread?


Thanks,


Ian.

That sounds like a good idea Ian. I dont think or hope Dave was upset by the "hijack" It was after all just a bit of light hearted humour..... Which in this day and age is sadly lacking.
I will start a joke of the day thread tomorrow :D All jokes welcome (within reason) of course. This type of thread (joke of the day) has gone down very well on another forum i frequent, and has been going for quite a while, and has made me laugh loads :lol:
So guys... Get your dad jokes at the ready.

Tony.

Dave, as your Dolomite has not run for quite a while it will be worth cleaning the points, rotor arm and contacts within the distributor cap. I used to find that these would often get corrosion on them and contribute to a poor spark after a while of non use, especially if the car is kept outdoors.

I found a folded over small piece of fine emery paper 2" long and 1/2" wide folded along the length to make it 1/4" wide worked well. Abrasive side out of course. With the points closed you can drag the folded abrasive paper between them a few times to clean them up in place while the faces remain parallel. Any deposits in the distrib.cap can be carefully scraped off with a flat bladed screw driver or similar tool.
