^^^^No whistle at all although we get the odd tapping noise as the aerial hits it over rough or uneven ground . :D

Ahhh...the Blue Peter in Polperro. Shame the Pac Man table was flogged off, but still one of my all-time favourite pubs :D .

Great fun playing doms with the locals.

My sister-in-law owns a house in Polperro 8)

Nic Rowley is there next week (jammy b*****r), renting a small apartment 30 feet from the pub!

How come every time I post stuff the subject changes within one post :lol:

Anyway decided to check the Vusky out after its little Cornish caper , I did notice something rather weird whilst it was ticking over as im just glancing over the engine .

The dizzy clamp bolt was jiggling about :shock: :?
A quick investigation revealed the clamp bolt was devoid of thread :shock: , I removed the dizzy just by pulling up so i could change said bolt .
How in the name of all that is holy did the dizzy actually stay put given we were pulling 6,500 RPM up many a Cornish hill or indeed how the timing stayed put il never know.

Ive had the same thing happen Dave. Driven for weeks without doing up the clamp as well.
Maybe some sort of vacuum keeps it from bouncing out, as it isnt that tight a fit, usually.

My four years at college in Plymouth in the seventies weren't entirely wasted - spent a lot of time getting to know the pubs in a forty mile radius :D :D :D

We' would often just drive down to Looe or Polperro for an evening (less than half an hour, especially when I lived in Saltash) - wonderful out of season without the emmets 8)

In those days you could park next to the Boscarne in Looe or the Blue Peter in Polperro - no barriers or 'no entry' signs. Happy days, except when some tw*t put me in Freedom Fields for 2 days when he pulled out in front of my mate's car outside the Great Tree holiday camp (just outside Looe) on 13th May 1973 :twisted: The significance of the date was quickly noted :roll:

Two cars written off, my mate with a broken leg and me through the windscreen (no seatbelts fitted in a 1959 beancan). Got a miserable £750 from his insurers :cry:

I drove my first Imp down there - I used to navigate in 12 cars for a guy with a brand new turquoise Sunbeam Sport (MYU 223L) and was instantly hooked. I got a heck of a shock, perhaps five years ago, waiting at a set of lights in Greenford (Middlesex) when that very car came towards me with a female driver :shock: What are the chances of that (not the female driver bit... :lol: ) ?

Devon, Cornwall, Lake District and the Dales. Does it for me every time.

139 miles all told as we went to Lynmouth as well bringing the total this holiday to 475 miles , hardly national weekend mileage but ive tried .
we did the Porlock hill clamber and the van would have coped fine except for the two cars stuck on the hill just after the bend at the bottom , I had to do a hill start right on the bottom bend ,drivers were both woman , the one two cars up got hers moving but i had to over take the other stuck car , i afraid i gave her a gobfull as i went past both windows were open so she did here , something about learning to elfin drive and other stuff..

PS I am Steven Spielberg as i did a little vid of the van and stuck it on youtube , first one eva so be gentle please.

The rear stone guard like Noddys was in fact a standard part fitted to early sport engined heavy duty models and those with B post air filter, basically a rough climate thing, albeit they were steel and rusted away, assume they were dropped later as a cost/weight saving exercise.

Re: Noddys Natterings , Fun at Noddys Towers.

Post by Dave ' Linwood ' Lane » Sat Aug 17, 2013 10:50 pm

Strange that a job that should take ten minutes takes all day :o
Started as a quick look at the roof trim yesterday that was loose on the drivers side and wouldnt stay fully clipped in , after a bit of trying thought it best to take it off completely and see just what was going on .
Trim appeared to be twisted so i removed all the clips from it and twisted it so that it fitted the roof perfectly without being clipped on , theory being that theres no part of it out of alignment and trying to twang off.
I managed this fine but by the time id finished id wrecked the paint a bit ,
This meant stripping it back to bear metal and respraying it .

I have a bag of new clips for this so it seemed rude not to use them , :D

I also painted the inside with waxoil along with the clips and the roof edge .
3 bloomin hours later on Friday it was all sprayed up in primer and today top-coated ready ready for the refit tomorrow.

Heres the trim all painted ready to fit back on , just hope it actually does :roll:

Well it fits :D
Not only that it fits perfectly with an even and very small gap between it and the roof.
Also it was very tight to get on using the new clips , .
I found it best to fit the clips to the car and then fit the trim , had to use a rubber hammer to tap it fully home.
Its no longer loose and looks much better :D :D

Or "bare" metal even better :wink: the trim had a plating on the metal that made the paint not want to stick, I found using an etch primer first solved that, not sure if they did at the factory though, probably not, which might be the reason the paint chips easily on it?

You might have problems getting these .
Ive been collecting parts for 20 odd years , I realised early on that some bits might just become unavailable so bought up stuff as and when that might come in handy or just wear out and be difficult or non cost effective to get remade.
Stuff like these clips , Chamois trim clips , glass channels , genuine screen rubbers and rear window rubbers , star wheel door locks and strikers and a whole load more.
Over the last 5 years or so this has been a god send when jobs like this come up
Both the clips and the channel were NOS , probably 20 odd years ago now.
Sorry i cant help,

How about a company called Bresco,? they make trim clips for thousands of cars and theres some clips on there that are used to clip the roof trim onto the Triumph Dolomite/2000 range which is a very similar section.
If you send them a sample they can see if they can match it up, and they will send the sample back if not so you dont lose what you have either.
