IC Engines / Can anyone make one of these ‘Widgets’
« Last post by Bustergrunt on Today at 12:31:19 »
Whilst perusing my old RCM&E mags (RCM&E special Autumn 2016) I came across an article by Brian Winch in which he describes a ‘widget’ which is used to convert glow engines to diesel.
This comprises of a copper rod with a thread which is screwed into 2 converted glow plug bodies.
1. Has anyone done this and if so how did it work for you?
2.could anyone make this for me as I have no access to a lathe.

Here is a little game we play at work.

A vehicle pulls up outside. Note the registration.

Then go to https://vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/

 I just had a dig around on Google and put in some older car Numbers, and they don't seem to work, as does my French ones, so
on Holiday in Britain next year i will come over in my French numbered car and F***k the Police !

You may or may not be surprised at the results.

I think I mentioned originally that I used to see community police officers going around council estates I was working on checking tax discs and calling in trucks to remove untaxed vehicles. Now they are relying on ANPR cameras in police cars (who really dont have the time anyway) to pick them up, just avoiding the ANPR in towns means you are unlikely to be caught. I would have though that smart motorways or any average speed camera would spot these and send a fine through the post, but I have not heard of this happening.

Thanks for that. Hopefully those who decide to dodge tax will at least take out insurance. ANPR is fine as far as it goes, but it does depend upon where you are. Up here I could drive for hundreds of miles without any danger of seeing a camera, either fixed or in a police car, and I assume that the same must be true in other rural areas.

Exactly what we said at the time Mike. They don't live in the real world. I think.in an accident third parties would be paid but you can kiss your comprehensive insurance goodbye. You won't get paid.

You don't need either tax or MOT to insure a vehicle. But if a police car equipped with ANPR pings it, the cop will know if it has any or none of them.  All three (plus the name on the V5) are stored on the police data base.

I;m sure that we all remember how scrapping paper tax diss was going to save the DVLA money - £10m a year according to the Guardian, £5m a year according to the Telegraph. One small problem. As many people, including myself, forecast the number of untaxed vehicles would rise. Sure enough it - apparently it has tripled, representing a loss to the Exchequer in excess of £100m per annum. Doesn't sound too bright an idea - but then, it was dreamed up by politicians.
As I understand it, you can't tax a vehicle that isn't insured. Does the reverse apply? If so that means a lot more unisured drivers on the road.
