I normally browse in Chrome, but I've just opened Internet Explorer and the pictures are showing. As the pictures also show on my own websites, it must be an issue between Google Chrome and the forum software.

Think I'm sorted now. I un-installed Chrome and re-installed it and the pictures are back. Whatever the problem was, it has happened since July when I last posted as the pictures worked then.

Picture test -

Nothing new to report on the Dodge front since its engine run in July. It is still in the container, up on axle stands with the battery at home. UK covid restrictions are changing frequently as cases rise in different areas so it's not worth the effort of trying to do anything with it.

Based on the rise and fall timing of the first wave of the virus, I'm wondering whether we'll get any of the 2021 season events. Certainly the first half of the year still looks under thread from restrictions. Time will tell.

December 2nd - Waking a Sleeping Giant - Again!

I went to visit the Dodge today since the latest covid lockdown eased. I shouldn't have expected miracles, as it is 6 months since it last ran due to its covid hibernation and the petrol in the tank is now at least 18 months old. Add that to a 6 volt electrical system and the best I hoped for was to pump some oil around the inside of the engine on the starter.

Image

Faith the Dodge really is a miracle worker however, as after a good prime and turning over on the starter on and off to get some oil moving, the ignition was turned on and the in-line 6 burst into life once again. I did however promise Faith some new fuel and a ride out next year!! Perhaps if we are really lucky, there may be the odd event happening later in the season.
