In your picture, what are the two tools to the right and left of the “adjustable wrench” which is referred to as a “monkey wrench” in the U.S.?

Re: Terms?

You’re over thinking this.

I’ve never heard people with V-8 or 6 cylinder engines refer to their engines as Bangers. It’s normally a term used by car guys so you wouldn’t find anyone with a one...

Re: Terms?

I agree with Flop, Jack and Bob C. that the the term “4 Banger” shortened to “Banger” refers to a modified 4 cylinder engine. Jim Brierley’s book which deals with his experience in the modification...

Re: 1930-31 Steering Wheel installation

I believe Marshall got tired of being criticized unfairly by some people on this board, that’s why he sends private messages. I don’t blame him for not wanting to have to endlessly justify his posts....

Re: Slamming into first gear
