Holy Grail Bottled Ale! Tempered over burning witches! Yeesssss!
Monty Python’s Holy Grail Ale
This brilliant and bold addition to our flock was created to commemorate the 30th anniversary of one of our finest comedic exports – the Monty Python crew!
Years later and Holy Grail is still going strong. With more hops than a killer rabbit, it’s a full-flavoured golden ale with a distinctively fruity flavour followed by the Black Sheep signature dry finish. Be warned, this beer has been tempered over burning witches! Only joking. Black Sheep Brewery
Apparently this has been out for a while but somehow I managed to miss it. I have yet to get my hands on these but I am trying diligently! I gotta have some! I may have a line on some and I will let you know how it works out. This is so way cool.
You know, we have seen some wild engine powered stuff but these guys at Whitlands Engineering are nothing short of spectacular. Check this bad boy out! The only thing missing here is Tim Allen and the Binford logo.
Now this is not the first by any means. Just a bit easier to handle than some other earlier US versions. These are part of the Unlimited V8 Competion Class Chainsaws. But no less impressive. Check out the US versions.
My 65 Mustang has developed an annoying ignition stutter
Over the last couple of months I have been fighting a new problem that has appeared on the 65. It is what appears to be a stutter, or misfire, at speed. It is real worrisome when cruising at freeway speeds when you can feel it missing a lot. And has made me a bit nervous to take it out on long runs. I need to fix that!
At first we thought it might be a fuel delivery issue. We replaced the carb with another and no net effect. Starts way better but other than that it still stutters. The next thought was that the aging Pertronix ignition unit was a possible culprit. I went ahead and got another rebuilt points distributor and dropped it in. Timing is stable so I don’t see any issues with timing gears and the such. We will be taking it out for a couple of spins to verify that all is still the same.
I will be doing a simple compression test in the next few days to substantiate what I believe may be some burned or stuck valves. I am not sure but this is a definite possibility. If the head is wounded I will get it reworked. With 80K it may be time to get it done. We shall see.
