    Finally, the answer comes 40 years too late!

    I had a Triumph TR3 that just would not run right. Always thought the problem was with the SU carburators.

    i always thought it was the starter one wacks with a hammer
    because they kind of stick sometimes .. and need to be coaxed ..
    there's a guy around the corner who repairs vintage english cars
    i wonder if he just uses a hammer
    sounds much easier than the usual carb rebuild, brake rebuild, clutch rebuild

    That was the starter, all starters that are "starting to go" can be hammered to make them work, there are teeth, some if the teeth snap off and so won't engage the gears, so you hammer the side if it, and the knock/vibration moves the teeth just enough to get them to spin and start, it works for a little while till too many teeth break.

    Understood... Now about that 4x5 PanF+... Hehe or maybe you can call the new film PanS for Stone I like PanFS also, or PanF2 I suppose if you can't include the S

    (If that ever happens it would be awesome, anythings possible, I do feel like I was a major contributor to the 70mm double perf happening) haha

    Squeaky wheel...

    Be careful; very careful... someone might be tempted to hit it with a hammer.

    Nice story, but, like so many of your other posts, wrong.

    It is actually to reseat worn brushes. It is an electrical contact issue, not some BS about broken teeth.

    Individual metal brushes = metal teeth... Geeze... I said you hit it and the vibration allows it to move again... Sorry I didn't say "align"

    You people are too literal sometimes.

    Yet another wrong story. The bushes are graphite. They don't have teeth. They wear down; not break. Again, it's an electrical contact issue, not some BS jammed gear issue.
