Don't know when i saw a feeler gauge last. Chuck old plugs in the bin replace with new and start engine.  With the BMW K100  thats what you did when it didn't start otherwise no need to change them.

25 thou is a figure ive allways used its the fattest one in a set of feeler gauges,
A lot of modern ignition systems use 1 mm (0.040")

I copy car mechanics when changing plugs - 1) take plug out of packet 1) screw into engine.

I got complete brain fade on one occasion and set  rotax gaps to the imperial setting based on a metric figure - took a whole day to work out what was wrong - I thought it seemed a bit wide at the time ....

Strange how they mix imperial and metric gaps

Just watched a repeat episode where Compo sees Nora Batty in in her dancing costume and has heart attack and dies.
Still very moving.
Hi Chris,
Only too happy to be even slightly compared to a one off.
He will always be around in many forms.

Hope all is well and you have started on the Noddy bike restoration..  Nudge , Nudge

Lovely stuff Nick. On the 'dynastic' subject saw an item about Trumps origins and it was his great grandmother who started the'property' venture and a picture of her in her twenties looks incredibly like his youngest son who is ten - an amazing likeness four generations later!

My 6 Year "old" grandson has created this for me,
"To Pops Love you Love from Jack"
He has clearly noted the lift and thrust engine positions with windscreen on far right in blue, then steering wheel in profile, my seat then MY goodself with beard. Hair is a tad optimistic tho
I think he has got my shape very "Post Christmas fare"
The drone is especially good!
