Two things we find in life:

1. Percussive maintenance is always an option.

2. Hammers are the worlds most versatile tool

  Isn't this what we in Yorkshire call a Manchester screwdriver?

3. Adjustable wrenches can perform all the tasks of a hammer, and fasten nuts and bolts too ;)


I had one to hit the starter on my boat engine of coarse it was the old 66hp Kelvin

Here's a little did-ya-know: The SRN4 cross channel hovercraft had Rotax starters for the four Proteus turbines. They were clockwork operated and as they wound down they would engage three contacts in turn to start the engine. However they used to get stuck quite frequently. A good whack freed them up.

Therefore it was not uncommon to start the four 3400hp gas turbines with the sole of one's shoe.  %%

That reminds me of Joe Don Baker the American actor, in the Bond film
 where he played agent Jack Wade and he started his little car
by smacking it with a whopping great sledge hammer {-)
I can.t remember if it was Golden Eye or Tomorrow Never Dies.
Pierce Brosnan played Bond.

I must admit there have been times when I have felt like doing the same
to some of my past cars.

 :-)) Hi,Derek,yes it did a lot clicking trouble was when it stopped the car stopped,as a poor apprentice I could not afford a new pump, alas I lost a lot of girlfriends when the car broke down every five mins,the only one who didn't run was SWMBO who got quite good at thumping the dash,those where the days,Ray. :-))

|Hi John.............had a couple of "C"'s.......roadsters..........lovely cars, but sadly now I have arthritic back neck and shoulders, could no longer drive them, and power steering was just too much to install at 3 grand a pop.

Just beautiful cars, but totally different in every way to my Healey 3000, of many years ago............the difference was amazing
