    Continuing from another thread......

    Who remembers having a “neighbourhood dog”, the one that was always in the street as we all played, moving the metal garbage bin “wickets”, off the road if a car came along, and the dog, who lived maybe 4 doors down, or was it across the road? We were never sure, but it never attacked the kids, had traffic sense, and seemed to get along with the cats in the street as well....

    We still have Golden North Jurgen. Giant Twins are the best chocolate coated ice cream anywhere. There is always a tub of Boysenberry Ripple or one of their other flavours in our freezer. ;)

    Starter button Bert?
    I've fitted a couple of engine bay starter switches over the years but that's clever.

    Golden North is like Barrie Robran. Simply the best anytime, anywhere.

    Got it Terry :)
    Parents had a Morris Oxford and it had one on it - mechanics could crank the engine without needing to go to the cabin :eek: ..... High School friend had an early '50's Morris Minor and it also had one :p

    These were on cars with a pull start button ie turn the ignition on then pull the knob to crank. The rod sticking out between the terminals was part of the pull start. On later pommy cars, when they went to key start, the"switch" was converted to a solenoid but they still had a mechanical button that you could press to crank the engine - very handy.
