Re: Lubricants for ratchet mechanisms

Hi, Hi, Crikey its only a ratchet :) I must be missing something :? Indeed. I've one of those ratchets that has had daily use for the last 15 years. The pawls and spring have been changed twice, put two drops of a bicycle oil that I know it won't "gunk-up", and that was all. No trouble to ...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hi, The Remainers lost the vote. Hopefully, that's the end of the argument, but I don't think it will ever be. It's not a bloody football match - you lost we won. It has much more serious consequences than that though I don't think you realise that given your inability to put forward any logical or ...

Re: Lubricants for ratchet mechanisms

Hi, I am drawn back into the dark art of getting my hands dirty lifting motors on and off the floor to the bench, not forgetting the boot of car. Ouch my back :( I will have to do some digging on the cg and xr125l. Two part dismantled stuffed motors xr electric start. One cg Chinese? with a kick sta...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hi, a question. What do We, the people do if they cant agree a deal, wont accept leaving without deal and refuse to cancel article 50? As this look like a likely scenario? Had the default been revoking article 50 then there would be no problem? You're a little late, I already predicted that we Leave...

Re: Best time for LeJog

Hi,

A long shot which will probably crucify me :(

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

Hi, Does it actually matter who is the Tory leader? It matters nowt to me. They're all the same, have been, and always will be. Yeah makes no difference at all to where we're heading.
