Irvine .40 diesel


Hi, A friend of mine is looking for a user manual for an Irvine .40 diesel. Does anyone know where I might find a scan of this for him?
Thanks in advance. Charlie

Here is a Tiapan from about 1956 that I cleaned last Summer. Had not been run since the late 1950's. Jack

The Taipans are lovely engines....!
To me they are kind of "new" though, as I cannot recall them beeing imported here in my youth...
The same goes with the French Microns...I never saw one here during the "golden years"...indeed very fine engines too....

Anodising


Reginald, I am nearing the stage where I will be doing some anodising and I wondered whether in your experience if you had found the need to agitate the acid during the actual anodising process. I have read that it is used in industry, but is it really necessary?
Thanks, Charlie

Very nice indeed!

Brian, so you'll be bidding then ? (and there I was thinking that DZ stood for Dee-Zill )
