There must be somebody based in the headquarters pictured above for whom the sole & single purpose of their employment is to find me & sponsor my mechanicalistic misanthropy? Could I not at least be written off as a tax deductible loss?

And so to ongoing woes. Battery charging here at The Place is troublesome, as availability of access to an relevantly placed & reachable power socket is very limited and understandably awkward to arrange. Because The Place is an outpost of a large housing association there are policies, and that means that rather than simply asking to plug in & plugging in, I am instead required to conform. You will know I am not very good at this. It's certainly not the fault of the 'coal face' staff, but simply another exemplar of the way that policies don't fit the ground they're written to operate on. And so I'm left with a limitation on how much I can rejuice my battery between my hamfisted attempts at adjusting the carbs.

Having done what was done in post 3727 I achieved little except rendering the machine unable to start at all, with just the occasional kick but no catch. And tho/ough I will read & reread the material referred to in post 3733 that still won't give me a deep seated & intuitive experiential understanding what the fuck I am doing. The electrical power point access issue is relevant because again I am forced into jabbing & churning the engine over in an attempt to get it to fire between adjustments, and then constantly hitting the brick wall of 'Nil Starterandum'. I've a horrid feeling that I'd manged (sic) to get it reasonably set for the temperature at which I was adjusting it in post 3727, i.e. warmed thru/ough, however this was not a good set-up for starting from cold and I was again forced to crank the high demand starter motor between fiddles, depleting the battery to the point of clickety starter relay time. When it comes to carbs I really don't know where I am ...


I am currently seated pretty much exactly where the A points. This is the site of The Place before the place was built, as its predecessor was being knocked down.

There is no solution to the not charging here at The Place issue, and so the only option is to borrow enough batter kick to get it running & high tail it over to The Previous Place (sometimes called 131, or My Home) to cadge a little more time in the former Shedquarters, where I can at least fiddle and charge simultaneously.

Well if Pjcr12 hadn't raided the corporate Underground Shipping Container/Garage/Workshop Fund I'd have somewhere to put it...

Having got a thump into the battery & eased in the mixture screw I have manged (sic) to get it started. I can only run for short duration here @ The Place because of the easily irritable tenants hereabouts. It's only fair. As an example of this, there is a regular problem with hirecabtaxicars pulling up & beeping for their fairs to come out of the building. Often they're still in their rooms, un-ready, rather than waiting in reception. To each driver this may seem a reasonable action, but when you multiply this beeping by a taxihirecabcar every 5 minutes & you can see the seemingly constant hooting can begin to grind... And so a short while back a resident with a problem with this problem remonstrated out his window with a random cabhiretaxicar driver, and not receiving the due regard he considered he deserved, he went out to the carhirecabtaxi with an iron bar. Mostly they won't pull this sort of shit on me, and are rebuffed when they do, I think it;s only reasonable for them to become irritated by a loud sound they don't like. @ 131 I was constantly irritated by the sound of gardening, which I find wholly unnecessary, and so was inclined to play a montage of lawnmower/strimmer/blower sounds early on a Sunday...

I am told in the fortress @ Carcassonne there is much work going on, as someone in one of the surrounding blocks, or the block you are in is always getting something done, indeed the block my dear friend Lusean lives in has been under attack for some ridiculous time. Now work is underway just opposite -







I was recently occasioned to reply to an email from him:

~ START ~

Oooh no. I can however see the opportunity for an ambient album, may I
suggest the working title of 'Grindgroan'? Take it for granted I am
listening to an FX library montage of assorted intrusive construction
sounds & traffic (reversing beeps?), but I'm having trouble finding a
source file for the inept banter/chatter of the construction workers,
and am not sure of which language to be looking in?

If it's any solace (it won't be, this might
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8hAMhLoQUc) someone is trying to get a
ground rigged turbine engine of some sort started 40 metres from my
window, and it whirs & occasionally misfires with an enormous resonant
bang. I know it's not the same experience as I sort of like that sort
of sound, but at least we're both being assaulted with audio.

Looking @ your pics & projecting on time scales for the work I imagine
they're attempting I can't help but imagine they'll be finished in
time for the electro/distorted clanking toy swords to begin. If you're
lucky one of them will shag some others girlfriend & there'll be be a
scaffold fight & murder, just give you something to watch. I'll in
turn watch out for news coverage in which you may be seen in the
background shaking your fist out of the window & swearing royally in
the Broughton/Bedgrove vernacular?

Could they not at least arrange for the work to coincide with the
Fortress Music Season in that there amphitheatre what I can't recall
the name of? My thoughts are with you, and my ear defenders are in the
mail. I am arranging a PA around 10k to play Grindgroan outside the
bedroom of the person responsible for this work, to play it all night,
& play it loud. If this is not enough to entice you into collaboration
on the piece, then I got nothin'.

XxxxX

~ END ~

I suspect tomorrow will consist of packing a tankbag of manuals & various tools & parts and try to get the thing started & over to the Shedquarters so that I can try to have a go at some of the following -

Amongst other things, I need 1 x number 9, the mixture screw O ring. If I've got any branes I'll start a list...

1st principles of carburisation...

I think of all the material I've found on the web regarding carburation, the following short film of Pob spitting on a screen perhaps best illustrates exactly what happens in the inlet tract during that mysterious joining together of atomised fuel & onrushing air...
