|Thread: Car Battery Charging.|
Hi Peter, I have one that I used to use in my car before I bought the new battery as the old one would run down after a couple of weeks sitting on the driveway. If I can rescue this battery then I start using the solar charger again.
Guys, the battery is less than two years old and was in my 2004 X-Type Estate. I went to start the car after leaving it for a couple of months and it was completely flat. A check after I removed it showed just over 1.8vdc. Obviously my charger would not start at this voltage so it took three days with a Solar Powered charger to bring the battery voltage up to just over 12.
This picture was taken about half an hour ago. Seems like it's working.
Hi Folks, it's been quite a while since I've been on the forum.
I have a flat car battery that I'm charging with an iCharger 1010B+ and I have a question.
Going by what's printed on the top of the battery it has a 75A capacity and a cranking capacity of over 600A.
At present it has been charging at a rate of 2A for the past 5 hours and some 15A have been put in. My question is, how long do I let it charge for?
|Thread: Flat Car Battery|
Frank, it's a 12yr old X-Type and as far as I know it has its original battery. This is the first time I've had trouble with it but saying that I haven't driven it much since winter.
I've just returned from a business trip and the battery in my car seems to have gone flat as a pancake. I don't have a "bulk standard" car battery charger but what I do have is an icharger 1010B+. Can I use this to charge my car battery and if so, what rate should I charge it at?

I have a DSX9 and a couple of branded receivers but the spectrum ones work for me too.

Does anyone know what cc range these carbs are good for and what would be a good starting point regarding the main needle setting?
|Thread: unusual closed loop system|
I can see a potential problem with that set up, the wires could wear through the snake and bind.

That's a bit strong Will, the guy was only asking for advice!

You really can't beat the OS F Type plug for any four-stroke engine.

I was impressed with your choice of fuel tank, is it a baby food jar?
|Thread: Airfix Kits.....|
I can remember getting into serious trouble from my day when he caught me on the roof of our house getting ready to launch a 1/24 scale Spitfire. Didn't fly but the crash was pretty spectacular!
|Thread: Morning all!|
Hi David S,
No need to apologize for the lengthy intro, the more information given makes it a lot easier for us old lags to pass on any pearls of wisdom we may have.
Welcome back to this deranged hobby of ours! I hope you and your son enjoy the ride!
|Thread: Evolution Petrol Engines|
I noticed (page 2) the video of the Evo engine running with a pressure feed to the tank. I was under the impression that this was a no-no with petrol engines. I certainly don't do it with mine.
Hi Colin, just read your post so here's a welcome from me too.
|Thread: Full body pilots|
1/6th scale, would that be the size of an Action Man figure?
|Thread: jacking blocks|
I made mine out of 3/4 MDF cut them out with a bandsaw. They work a treat.
