A random selection of post about travel, and tinkering with mechanical machines. Mostly cars from 1937 to 1999, manufactured in English speaking parts of the world, but also kayaks and sewing machines. So here you can see how we travel, drive, paddle, break fix and find on a regular basis.
The orange MGB was slightly overdue for a service. Because of the covid-restrictions the car had not been used much, but still I try to change the oil every two years, check the brakes and grease all lubrication points. Also it was another good reason to practice lifting skills.
And of course there was a little mishap. I was checking if I had parked the mg correctly on the lift. I had not and gave it a little push, not realising the other side was already on the edge. No harm was done, the lift is very low, so the car just stood with the front wheels on the floor. I managed to jack up the car, put a thick board under the car and move the car back on the ramp. But hey, I'll make sure next time!
