    This forum is ALREADY an essential source of valuable information ( and some not so valuable but we won't talk about that..it's one way of keeping some kind of sanity in this world!!!)

    Joke

     After 30 years of marriage Jacqueline and her husband Mark went for counselling. When asked to describe her problems, Jacqueline went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 30 years they had been together. She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unfulfilled needs she had endured over the course of their marriage. Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking Jacqueline to stand, tore open blouse with buttons flying everywhere, ripped her Bra off, starts tongue kissing while he embraces her, then puts his hands on her breasts fondles them, and kisses them passionately. A side glance at her husband, he then put his hand up her skirt, ripped her G-String off, and fondled her wildly, while her husband Mark watched with raised eyebrows and mouth wide open. Jacqueline, flushed, tried to cover herself with the torn blouse, and quietly sat down as though in a total daze. The therapist turned to Mark and said, now do you understand? 'This is what your wife needs at least three times a week! Can you do this?' Mark thought for a moment and replied, 'Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays,I play golf.'

  3. So, to round off my Halfrauds saga, I called in to the local store last night having received 9 texts to say that my orders were ready for collection. I was totally up front with the assistant who said "oh you're the one with the sanding disc order". I also told him that since putting through the orders, the main computer had sent me another three voucher codes and that I was a little unsure about using them in view of now receiving a total of 12. He told me to just put them through and that he would see me over the weekend!! So, 1 large screwdriver, 2 packs of assorted wet & dry and 6 packs of sanding discs...oh and yes, I am now the proud owner of a trade card. Not a bad shopping trip...total cost..nil. I don't know how much I will use the trade card, but the discounts on some items is staggering. No wonder they tried to rip of a friend of mine for £400 to repair his brakes, which were already brand new (long story). They have to claw back the money in offers from somewhere.

    Based on these comments and the fact that mine still functions (so far....... hastily touching wood 😉) I've bought the refurb kit......... Best wishes, Mike.

    That was a year that was..

    Good morrow neighbours, Thanks to all, Duxford was a thoroughly enjoyable event ..most of all because I met up and chatted with some of you. . . Mathew, Paul-H, Andrew and others who seemed to know me but I didn't know their names. Perhaps next year I'll wear a Bfg avatar badge and who knows some of you might like to do the same.? Shame Katie wasn't quite ready for the 115 mile round trip ..nothing very major just a host of minor but niggling faults, of which fuel squirting out was the deciding factor. I bought replacement fuel pipe and new clips, as well as a battery isolator from the club shop at the Duxford, but it turns out to be the float needles being held off their seats by bits of debris. I'd thought this was from where the tank had been removed and any bits in that had been stirred, but I'm now suspecting the replacement fuel pipe I had on the shelf, and then fitted on Thursday must have had crud inside of it, or else have deteriorated inside the tube. Both carbs have squirted petrol from their valves not seating and the rear one three times over the past few days. It's becoming tiresome. Yesterday evening I went along to our local group meeting, 1st Tuesday of the month at The Sorrel Horse Inn, Norwich Road, Barham, and again the rear float bowl disgraced itself. So one of my tasks today is to discard that fuel hose and fit what was bought on Sunday. In the meantime I've been working through a multitude of other niggling faults, but I'll bore you with those later on ..as right now it's sunny and time for me to get on with the job. Pete.

  9. I have no problems with my 13/60. I use a standard socket drive set and spark plug socket. Ok, it is a bit close but passes. Maybe you all need to sell your weird cars and buy a proper one, a 13/60. I've already got my coat and am running for the door. 😱

    Eureka Triumph

    My name is Chris Buckingham, some of you may know Eureka Triumph as being my late father's company, Brian Pollard.After reading through the above thread, I can see many concerned people, and I can confirm that they are my customers.As alluded to, it has been a very challenging year both personally and professionally. We have typically been a family-run business, and I have now taken over as my father passed last year. Through Covid, many dimensions of my business became very challenging with issues getting parts, suppliers being closed, and the resultant need to let go of some staff that have been with us for years as part of the family. At the same time, I have been managing the unwinding of my father's estate.This is the tip of the iceberg due to this being a public forum, however, I feel the need to address the real issues that my customers have faced previously. Issues that I deeply and sincerely regret ever occurring. This is not the way I want to do business. It is my personal mission to make Eureka Triumph a company of honesty, sincerity, and trust for you and your engines.Over the past three weeks, I have been directly addressing the concerns of my customers, and as such, we have undertaken a complete reset of the business.We have:- Stopped accepting new orders until our current order book is complete. Hence the website is currently not live.- Communicated with all of our current customers and come to a fair resolution with each of them.- Relaid out the workshop to improve ways of working and customer order management.- Generated a new work scheduling process to ensure we are on track and communicating when anything changes.- Sorted and catalogued the significant levels of engine parts that we have to better address our customer requirements.- Improved our quality checking processes.- Completely altered and improved our customer communications.- Changed suppliers and moved to higher quality machinists in the local area.- Revised our prices so that we are not running at a loss and we can build higher quality into our products.We currently remain closed for new orders but we will be opening again in a few months as the new and improved Eureka Triumph. Whilst we believe that we have contacted everyone with a concern, If anything remains, please contact me directly on admin@eurekatriumph.comI will work tirelessly to rebuild our brand and have learned a lot from the past. Personally, I love building engines. They are the heart of a beautiful Triumph that we all know and love as a part of our British Heritage. The more we do to keep these cars on the road, the better in my sincere opinion.SincerelyChris Buckingham
