...wondering where all the bluddy time's going :frown:

Surprise!

I think Miloš was. Reassembled on the dining room table last night (you can tell t'wife's not here :mrgreen: ) and tested this morning, mostly by Miloš as I have a pathological fear of chainsaws (thanks dad :( )

I'm thinking this was the culprit

The fuel line that goes from the tank to the carb, there's a split just below the gromet. The primer is on the other side (it's the sort that pulls fuel through the carb, rather than chucking fuel into the choke), there's a little diaphragm pump in the bottom of the carb that sucks fuel through this tube from the tank and I reckon it was also pulling air through the split. Hopefully that's it done, it's run ok before while I've been a-fiddling but I think this time it's fixed. Miloš was well pleased. Total cost: about the same as UK, about 4 quid (maybe it's only me the shop rips off :evil: )

Ok, that's 15 minutes gone, what's next? Ah crap, cook lunch, go shopping. maybe I do miss t'wife :(

And this evening I shall be basking in the absolute silence of the Croatian football team's defeat at the World Corruption Final. Woo.

Seriously, all afternoon the apes have been getting louder, awful music, fireworks, air raid sirens, fire engine sirens, car horns, drunken bellowing, reaching a crescendo about 20 minutes ago, the animals have been nervously rushing about, I've had all the windows shuttered so it's pretty hot in here and suddenly...

SILENCE

I am overjoyed Croatia lost, I couldn't give a flying sock who won.

I can't even see why anyone takes it seriously any more, after all the allegations about corruption, fraud, tax fiddling and match fixing we've heard about over the past few years. It wouldn't surprise me if the winner was decided in a brothel somewhere in the middle of Europe last year, England weren't going to win it because of Brexit but Croatia stood a chance as the EU's latest slave market, you gotta keep the drones happy. Hey, I think I saw something about some strange referee decisions, I guess that's when the players forget their instructions and start playing for real.
