Would be nice to wander over and watch the sunrise through the stones, but the place will be heaving with silly buggers :(

Work in the morning. Customers must come before life ;-)

London is not in the UK, well it may be geographically, but there are no English people there. The parks used to be a place to get away from it all, now they are full of Sweeds :grin:

Shame on you mark, You don´t have any small kids. But if you give her a good salary she maybe would consider?

In Britain, the summer solstice is also known as the first day of summer. I know this makes no sense.
3 days later, the 24th (my birthday) is known as Midsummer's day. I know this makes no sense either.
Maybe this means autumn start on June 27th?

The Swedish Frogdance does´t make any sense either so that´s ok.

Those head studs are way over sized so I just pull as hard as I can on them. The actual torque has gone down as I get older. :???:

I did as Steve said and backed them off a quarter turn then eased them up to as tight as I could and was not leaking for a bit :lol: then I tried to start it with a wet sump and it backfired :oops: and the leak is back <978 so Doug I would say there is about 40 lbs tension on them. But can not get a tension wrench on the push rod side. I'm worried if put to much tension I'll distort the head :roll: sorry to <910 your thread Rickard :uhu

<910 Straying even further off topic - why does your bike wet-sump (or drain back ;-) so much Barry?

There's something wrong there.

I can leave mine weeks without any significant accumulation of oil in the sump. <910

As this is Rickard's topic, I'll leave him to sort this mess out when he recovers from his Frog Dance <970....neadless to say you are all very naughty <910 boys <918, and it is the usual suspects who are the repeat offenders <051. I won't mention any names but Stan, Barry, Skippy & Ian, you are all in detention <009.

Sorry Minety :oops: I apologise to Rickard <906 and while I'm hear Ian I know your right that's a lot of oil :roll: I was away for 7 days and when I drained the sump I got about 600ml and then the primary 600 ml :shock: but I'd like to fix the head leak first and the wet sump I can drain with Marks great sump plate :thumb then next I'll look into the wet sump :idea: so am I off detention <009 Minety

Some trivia - For a change, Winter solstice in Oz this year is 10.51am on the 21st June 2014 and it can vary anytime between 20 and 22 over the years. So Saturday is the day to get merry and go dancing, although the freezing weather here in the hills make it less than inviting. Does this coincide with the Northern hemisphere? if it does then UK and Northern Europe will have theirs very early on the 21st but would Eastern USA be on the 20th?

Hey, we must be immune from Minety or Rickard moving the off topic items from here if the name of this board is off topic :???: We can do whatever we want and it is in the correct place :ban .
