Let me check that,  it does not sound correct. OK I had the weight incorrect so it pushed it to the next shipping band.

Try again.
Graham.

Well done, chaps.
One thing I've noticed though (speaking as a Yorkshireman  ;)  ) is that as I need one of each of the two spanner sizes, the postage for two ordered together is £1.50 more than two ordered separately  :-\ That's nigh on enough for a pint  ::)

Just found a 46mm copper washer on Amazon after failing with normal searches.https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01EZZOMZ4/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Just come across this thread while exploring the forum.  Graham, if it is not too late I would be interested in a set of spanners - my plug holder seems to need tightening every few hundred miles.  Maybe I should get a copper washer too!

Graham, the brass cap that holds the 'flint' is 1.730" whilst the fir cone is an ominously beastly 1.666"  :o

Guys can you do me a favour measure the across flats dimension of the Fircone caps and the spark plug holder.

I have measured mine  as 1.727" across the flats for both fircone and spark plug holder.

You can certainly put me down for a pair of spanners when they're available. Good work, chaps.
On a related matter, has anyone found a reliable supplier of the actual fir cone valve cap? It would save me having to make one from scratch or obtaining a 'blank' from the Austrian supplier. Mine's getting fins as thick as Mr Creosote's proverbial 'waffer-thin mint'.  ;)

Steve send an email to Vic Youell he had a new on in the club spares, he showed it to me at the meeting in Windsor..John
