Where can I get copies of this book? Not on Amazon. I've been looking for a textbook for my car physics course, and you've found one that looks entirely appropriate. Thanks mate.

Is this the predecessor of the Chevrolet Volt? It looks like the engine is there just to drive a generator to charge that awfully large battery!

I'd not seen that one David, despite my involvement with a 1098cc rebuild in my Mk IIa AH Sprite.....many broken rings, blow-by into a catch tank faster than I could re-fill it, yet the compression test came up excellent. :banghead:

Once rebuilt it never leaked oil or overheated in 44 degree daily commutes (I cheated and took out the new thermostat)

I will confess that many four-letter words were used after paying some British Car expert d**khead a lot of money for a g'box re-build that screamed the whole way home...he paid for the brake fluid damaged paint job, another g'box re-build, but declared bankruptcy as I took him to the then Small Claims Tribunal, and all it was was a dodgy, new thrust bearing fitted by him......many more 4-letter words were expleted after a simple weekend's engine R&R to fix what was over 6 months of grief.... :angry4:
