Ah I see

"Discretely" with 't' separating the 2 'e's means "separately," while "discreetly" with 't' following the two 'e's means "in a tactful, judicious, or non-ostentatious manner."
You're partly right: It means to exist as an entity..a complete,separate identity...not simply "separately".

E.g. "A quanta is a discrete unit of energy that exists in proportion to the frequency of radiation."

Alsways check the person you are buying things off wherever possible.. Still i see your point, item isnt as described, simplez really log it with Fleabay and job done.. Not much else you can do.. Dont leave neg feedback though untill the case is resolved as it will go against you in the claim...
As much because of the spurious ellipsis as any of the other infractions.

OK, After spending many hours partially dismatling the webbers, throtle cable (taking off the cover of the pedals), coil etc etc. Much cursing etc etc.

Can anyone recomend a batery theat will fit without all of the above? I'm P****d of with having to do all of the above every few years. Yes, I know I should have fitted an Optimate (other brands are available) but I diddn't. I have one now.

So any advice is welcomed. It's a 1994 1700 Super Sprintwith the battery underneath the Webers. The 7 is not used regularly so it's not as if I'm starting it every day.

thanks to the PH masive.

I think the whole point of this project/engine
Is that it will be very compact
Poss the most power to Waite to size engine
Out
The trouble with ls/ford engines they have no flat plain crank
They are heavy and large and and the ford is under powers
Unless you put in a lot of work and money
The crank in the ajp is what makes the cerb what it is

I had that when I ordered mine the other day so I tried again and again, the. I had a call from my back the day after asking if I'd made 3 payments..
There isn't a 'gibberish' thread so the above goes here.
There must be nearly 20 uses for the word 'the', but I doubt after a comma and before a full stop is one of them.Then the author's back calls him..

I have always think they are a load of bullocks. Especially if the power stations are burning fossil fuels. Its a farce, I can only imagine how much emmisions in the country would rocket if everyone switched to electric car tommorow.
