Re: Mpi

All Mpi's suffered diff problems. One of mine blew itself and the diff housing apart years ago. Fitting a 4-pin diff is a must.

Re: Mpi

Dylan8660 in Drogheda has done a lot of development work on Mpi's. I bought a ported head for my Mpi some years ago from him. He experimented with different throttle bodies etc.

Re: Camping weekend 2018

Second that.

Grand relaxed weekend, great facilities, and loads of cuppas to be scrounged.

Most of us could possibly be diagnosed with Campers Lung after Friday night but worth it to list to DJ Maloney's tunes (not).

Photobucket is back again for free!

Last year's decision by photobucket to charge users to post their images has now been reversed. Check your old posts on this forum. The photos are live again. Great news particularly for those of us who have created build threads in the Projects section. https://www.bizjournals.com/denver/news/2018/...

Re: IMM 2018 Attendance List

Hi Martin,

Do we have to individually contact the organisers with our space requirements or is it covered by the club feedback? I got the questionnaire by e-mail.

Re: New Facebook page for members only

So in the interest of attracting new members, will all club events be always posted on the main IMOC facebook page and not just in the members only group?

What's the purpose of this new page? Will there be club-related information published there that paid-up club members who don't have Facebook won't be informed about?

I'm assuming it would apply to how members' data is held and distributed within the club?
