    ….when you’re watching “All Creatures Great and Small” and you can’t help but be entirely distracted by the farmer who is clearly refurbishing his S.U. H6 carburettor on the kitchen table.

    Were else would you rebuild a carb? If your blessed with a table, good light and a supporting (and loving) wife, it is an ideal location.

    I’m not debating the kitchen table - heck, I rebuilt my Triumph 2000 MkI cylinder head on mine - I’m just amused by the fact that they included such obscure (and accurate) detail in the drama.

    I do note that the limits of their originality were strained... that's a later model carburettor than would have been available in the 1930's... it has a black plastic top on the dashpot. Tisk.
