  1. I u8nderstand the Icelandic Prime Minister has declared that no-one will be allowed to charge any fee to view the volcano. Pete
  2. Hylomar is fine, there's very little stress on the sleeve. Pete

  12. +1 for Cascamite. If you use Gorilla glue I would recommend the clear version, which doesn't foam but seems to make a stronger bond with wood. Pete
  13. There used to be a fastener supplier in Coventry owned by a Mr Goode. The company was of course called the Goode Screw Company. Pete
  14. That Liberty engine's a bit too small:
  15. In the late sixties I briefly owned a Rolls-Royce Phantom hearse. The previous owner had fitted the chassis and running gear from an ex-WW2 Humber-Rolls 4x4 truck, and a Spitfire supercharger. I think the mpg was around 3. I only drove it once. Pete
