    In terms of 'when will I ever use this', I tend to explain that learning Mathematics helps develops different aspects of the brain: reasoning, logic, problem solving, acceptance of new ideas etc. The maths subject content has hardly changed in the almost thirty years I've been teaching it. I always tell pupils that they'll get a genuine 20th century education from me at no extra cost!

    n is the position in the sequence So for the 10th item, n = 10 (7 x 10) + 2 =72
  3. I was thinking that it might be a **** and Whitney possibly.
  4. Here are some photos of another couple of engines. Both are twin radial.
  5. Hi, an odd request perhaps, but does anyone know of an aero engine discussion forum? I need assistance identifying a couple of engines. Cheers
  6. With regard to the awful tragedy in the Lake District regarding the member of the mountain rescue team, one of the people was from Liverpool, the other was from Leicester. Disrespect of the countryside can be found everywhere. I stopped on a layby along Loch Lomond the other year, the rubbish tipped over the stone wall included builders waste and a full size cooker. Hardly the stuff that you pack for a week of camping in The Trossachs!
  7. From memory... Under the two nuts holding the air filter cover on, they may be wingnuts or might be 10mm M6 nuts. Remove the filter housing, should be two 10mm M6 nuts. Remove the handle using a TX27 torx bit, the throttle control rod and choke control should lift out with the handle. Carefully slide the carb off the studs.
  8. Funnily enough I've not paid my mortgage off yet but I've got all the deeds/documents etc. Lovely old document from the 1880s signed by local minor aristocrats/landowners.
  9. Hydrogen fuel cells have been mooted for a long time. From what I remember about hydrogen is that its pretty explosive, just look at the Hindenburg footage! "Oh the humanity!"
  10. I use Adrian Flux, a broker, for a couple of additional vehicles.
  11. His was a brave attempt to break the deadlock of two party politics in this country.
  12. Always remember seeing him in a war film in his life before 'The Street' RIP
  13. My thoughts are with you at this sad time.
