Parked under a tree at a mysterious location.
Not Sunshine or Preston

one of the most common jobs I get in at work is replacing Triumph alternator stators
unplug it from the regulator and check to see if any of the three yellow wires have continuity to earth

The mystery of the yellow wire is solved at last!

Yo hoh ho!

Hi Everyone, thanks for another great year here, this is the Christmas message primer.....

Yes, I know I particularly have been a little thin on the ground here, there are good and not so good reasons for that. We have decided that we will be leaving the Spirit of Sunshine at home for the 25th annual DLRA Speedweek in 2015. The reasons are many. Although we have got some ideas in the works, we need to distill them down , to a useable set , of ideas..... There will be a new home for the SOS early in the new year, a better workshop, maybe a little more time on my hands....

There was the trip to the US this year that despite the cancellation of Speedweek was a holiday of a lifetime and I need to thank Chris and Kate, Wayno, Don and Sandra, Chris and Lori and of course Freud for their hospitality. The plan to spend a year in Canada has been shelved in favour of another venture here in Oz. So, we'll be back, maybe not next year but we'll be back and maybe next time with a race car...

Let the festivities begin.........

Full steam ahead.

The big upside to Speedweek getting cancelled was spending time with you, brother.
 
Put SOS in a new dry dock, recompose the rigging and focus on the flank speed.

Call if you need anything.

And Merry Christmas!
