    Is it fair to follow this reasoning? The windscreen clears the fastest when the heater matrix is hot & the blower on max. First thing on a cold morning you only have the blower but if you push more air across the screen it will clear faster. However the blower is restricted to the voltage at the terminals, jack that voltage up & the fan runs faster, too much & it’ll blow. I have a similar motor on the bench at the moment running happily at eighteen volts & it’s no more than aired. Next move is a DC to DC up converter into a variable controller & dispense with the rotary switch.

  • Thirty MPH in the workshop & that’s it. I’ve got more jobs on than I can work on at the moment & I’ve kitchen cupboards to build before Christmas.

  • I too will dig the spare speedo from its slumbers & have a play. Firstly I’ll have to calibrate the lath, which runs on three phase, controlled by a inverter drive, to that end I’ll have to find some reflective opto switches (or reed switches), then I’ll have to rag an old calculator & link the 1 & + to a circuit with two optos & an off circuit to another. Then arrange them around the chuck having made an adapter for the speedo drive.
    OH shit you do it & I’ll just watch ! !

  • I had reached sixty nine before I was “awarded “ my first speeding ticket granted early one glorious spring morning by a man in a van.
    I wasn’t aware of going excessively fast, interested only on road safety along roads devoid of other traffic.
    I installed a redundant GPS to cross reference & found my speedo accurate enough to avoid further tickets, providing of course I keep an eye on its reading or avoid the gimlet eye of the local constabulary.

  • Airportable replied to the topic Mayo in MGF/TF Pitstop
    143bhp is considered small beer these days amongst sports cars but it can still (even at twenty five years old & with over 120000 on the clock) get up the road in a manner which can startle both onlookers, the driver, my wife & dog.
    I’d like to spend half a day in a finely honed Elise, having done the same in an Elan a good few years ago.

    You might of course have been in third gear for the entire twenty miles, in which case it would have been both noisy & tedious.

  • You are correct in every detail, including the “bought it for a bit of fun” & thank you for highlighting Dieter, his attention to detail & MK 1 circuits have saved me hours. Not a week passes without my referring to his site, not just for the information but for the sheer joy looking through the range he’s covered.

  • No finer illustration could be given & precisely what I had in mind, although the setting is somewhat tame. However I guess that if you were to pan through 180 degrees you might see a ‘roo filled scrub right up to the vanishing point. Or beyond if you are a flat earther. An eclipse would be interesting if it were a flat earth. M
