    The Caterhams also, like the Midtec, represent the 'old British tradition' of sports-car ownership: rain leaking in around the side-curtains, and, if you're really a masochist, you can use some old Lucas electrics, and drive around with a flashlight, two clip-jumper wires, and a slew of fuses, for when the inexolerable electrical problem crops up during any journey longer than six miles.

    Had a lively time getting the thing built. Reminded me of an old (think it was Mark Twain) quote I once read: "The two things seperating Great Bitain and the United States are the Atlantic ocean and the English language."
    Boots, bonnets, didn't know WHAT was going on... At one point, a manufacturer of engine/transmission adapter plates and I tried to figure out what the 'bobbin' listed with an old part was - never DID figure out what was meant...

    His secretary (fairly young) had just a darling English accent, and I used to tease her about being taken with her, but I told her "don't take this seriously, I'm only flirting: I have underwear that've been dustrags longer than you've been alive!"

    I think the bit about the English language is very true :-)

    As for "bobbin", if I've read that right i could mean a "pulley". Also cotton would be on a "bobbin" say for a sewing machine feed. So i suppose a bobbin could be a part of a tensioner on a cam belt etc....

    Yeah, here, the only common usage of bobbin is for sewing: it's the little metal spool that comes with the sewing machine, and holds the thread (when utilized) for the back-stitching; so when you change colors, the first thing you do is load your spool of thread onto a little gizmo that winds it onto the empty bobbin.

    However, this was part of an assembly that went between the transaxle and the engine, and, of course, we couldn't find a drawing! Don't know what a pulley would be doing in there - thought it might be the throw-out bearing, but, no joy: you appear to translate 'throw-out bearing' as 'throw-out bearing'...
