Spent a frustrating two - three minutes the other morning standing in the light rain, pulling fuses, and tapping relays, wondering if a fuse had gone....ignition was totally dead..though battery tested 12.6 volts with the volt meter.

No matter how many times i turned the key on/off/on...nothing...

grrrr..WTF now!



Took the key out of the Steering lock barrel and put it in the ignition and the bugger fired up first time !

Your connection at the battery need to be clean and tight for the neck barrel switch to work properly, ah never mind.

A year's gone by
with laughs galore

By posting pics
that never bore.


This thread is here
so spirits soar

Just poking fun
to make a roar.


Oh, Never Mind,
was Brad that swore

And here we are
forever more..............

Oh, Never Mind - They were British birds and likely very sweet, even though they didn't go tweet, tweet, tweet.

What Ever Happened to Randolph Scott?




Statler Brothers Song - UTube


Whatever happened to all of these
Has happened to the best of me.

Whatever happened to Randolph Scott
Has happened to the industry.





Oh, Never Mind. The societal toilet continues to swirl, even without the movies...
