    Can anybody shed some light on these dynamos as to what they fit?

    Part numbers are as follows: C45NV2 228069 6V, C45N 228183 6V, C45 12v but we don't have number for that one as they have been rusted off, and the other one is a C45A 224042 12v. thanks in advance.

    Just another reminder - Seem to do a lot of these

    I clocked a member today replying to one thread with 'just get a sparky in it'll take 10 minutes', and then in another literally said 'get your money out and get a sparky in'. So this is a polite reminder. Don't do that. If they were going to get a sparky in, they would have done. If you...

    Is there an inverter that fullfils these requirements ?

    Hi, I want an inverter which can give the consumer power from solar if available, second battery if there is power on it and at last from the grid BUT i am not interested to feed to the grid (not interested in getting an approval from the local energy company). I know there are hybrid inverters...

    General rant about the standards of driving these days!

    Is it just me or is the general standard of driving going down hill? I had a 'little' commute home yesterday, from Irvine in Scotland to just north of Cardiff. I get really fed up of the number of 'CLODs' (Center Lane Only Drivers) that travel on motorways. I'm tootling along on the inside lane...

    Don't suppose these exist?

    Need to install a load of outdoor sockets to be used for Air-Con equipment (vac pumps etc) local to some condensers. Anyway I was just wondering if there is such a thing as an IP rated 3 position rotary switch? The idea is that the normal rotary isolator could power the condenser in position...

    Customer needs one of these changed for an elderly relative. Found new versions by Mk themselves for the old one but at £30+ hoping to find a more affordable alternative. Anybody know of other makes that fit the dimensions? or better still sensible priced MK ones?

    A bit of a problem with a 4 post car lift yesterday. I was in last week and tested it, two 20amp cartridge fuses blown, motor winding shot at. The machine needs no limit switch control, as it's done mechanically via an interlock, automatically operating a start button via a hand lever with...

    I'm all set to fit my 8 downlights at the customers house. I texted the builder the night before to make sure he wouldn't be in the way, he's already said he wouldn't but I wanted to double check. No reply so I assume all is well.
