Weird controls in a 2CV ?
Obviously this man has not the slightest notion of cars.


Well to a driver/owner of a modern car it does come across as a bit unorthodox. Gear-lever and handbrake protruding out of the bulkhead/firewall and an unusual gearchange pattern when compared to a Ford/BMW/GM/VW/PSA (even modern Citroens), etc.

Oh, the modern fuel is..?

Only couple of years old fuel, last time this engine said to be running great, and after that standed unused for a while...

The carb is from this, Bernard W110, made in France in 1957...

Something is wrong with hotlinking photos and video, doesn't work like it had worked before. Can't guess what I'm doing wrong... :oops:

This morning I found this under the bonnet of my Volvo V70:

What is it ? Rats, or martens ?

The V50 had the insulation of its engine cover half chewed up :

And in the enginebay of the Citroen AZ I found droppings like a rat .
What can I do about it? I do not want them chewing my wiring .

apart from using the vehicles regularly, the best thing, in my experience, is a good cat ;)

You've reminded me that I have a little job to do T'farm. My friend left the horse trailer in the yard, and the geese ate the lighting wiring!
