2017 september

Previous Event: Markus & Michelle Se Run.

Ek en Michelle het ons Run van Sondag na Saterdag geskuif, omdat die plekke wat ons wou besoek op Saterdae oop is.

2017 septemberDie buggers het so 11:00 by tulbagh se kruis bymekaar gekom en ons het daar vir almal gewag om te arriveer. Ons het toe alklaar 'n buggy probleem gehad, maar gelukkig nie te ernstig nie - net battery. Met die probleem opgelos het ons deur Ceres gery oppad Kouebokkeveld toe. In Gydopas het ons by een van die uitkyk punte gestop om vir almal te wys hoe mooi die uitsig van Ceres vallei area is. Voor ons na ons volgende bestemming gery het, wat Ceres Brewery was, het ons eers 'n lekker shot gevat om onsself warm te maak teen die koue.

Ons wou die buggers plattelandse bier laat proe by Ceres Brewery - wat 'n lekker gesellige plek is waar mense Ceresbier kan proe en lekker gesellig kan verkeer. Daar was 'n bietjie aan ons verduidelik en vertel oor die verskillende biere en 2017 september2017 september2017 september2017 september2017 september2017 septemberdie smake. Ons het sommer ook lekker pizza's van die restaurant langsaan, Capish!, bestel en in die brewery bly sit en eet.

Ons het ook iemand gehad wat aan ons 'n produk bekendstel het. Dit is 'n produk met die naam IQOS. Dit is soos vaping deur meer rook te gee, maar jy gebruik 'n klein sigaret.

Na die lekker gekuier, geëet en lekker gesels het ons die raffle gehou by die voertuie. Daarna het almal na hul huise toe terug gekeer.

Dankie aan almal wat deurgekom het en die dag so lekker gemaak het.

 Capacitor (Condensor) Test

Condensors last a long time, but a defective condenser makes a huge difference in the spark voltage.
Here's a good snippet from an Aussie manual for testing the capacitor -

  1. Remove distributor cap.
  2. First, make sure the condensor is connected to the points properly.
  3. Turn crankshaft until the points are fully open (any cylinder).
  4. Disconnect the LT (green) wire from the coil.
  5. Connect a test lamp wire to the ignition coil terminal and the other lead to the distributor wire.
  6. Switch on the ignition. If the lamp lights, the condensor is grounded internally and must be replaced.
  7. Now reconnect the distributor wire to the coil.
  8. Pull the main high tension wire from the coil, and with the ignition on, turn the engine over. The spark should jump a 1/4 inch gap to earth. If it won't jump this distance, replace the condensor.
