Wow, very detailed, takes all the mystery and fun out of diagnosing a fault !! Mine is several messy folders with lots of notes and scribble.. Actually still surprising myself when I discover which fuse controls what !! Now using the re-set type.

What software did you use to do all those circles and diagrams over the photos ??
ACDSee
My second trade is Technical Author.
I have ACDSee photo Studio 2019 Standard. I have never tried using drawing tools, any tips ??
I never make the same mistake twice, I do it 5 or 6 times just to be sure !!!

VERY detailed documentation, Choco. I'm super impressed, mate.

Some older cars I had (with regard to the starter circuit) - I put the starter signal in-line (via a relay) from the oil pressure switch, or the alt. light.
So if the car's running, you can't accidentally engage the starter motor. It's how we used to hide radar detectors, too, along with interior light signal and the trusty hidden switch. Coppers never found them.... Ha !

Cheers, Mudgy

Just had a squiz late last night. That publication is a huge amount of work mate! All the relevant details and experiences, well laid out for everyone to understand and make valuable use of. A hearty "well done" from me!

There's lots in there not just for the build you are doing but hints and tips for all of us. We all owe you for that, Choco.

Thanks mate,
Jeff.

For anyone that hasn't had a look, go do it! You will be amazed and impressed at what you find.
Yeah. I've changed my signature. The old one was out of date...

I see that Choco has had some medical issues and also needs a NAG1 trans. I can help if anyone knows how to contact him. I sent him a PM< see what happens.

Hope you are OK Frank.

Robtus (and others).
I don't think Choco is on as of the new forum. He was at the last CHRA meeting, hopefully he'll turn up next one.
If you want to contact him, try the hotrod handbooks email.
Or, email me and I'll pass it on.
I don't know if PM's are working. (no, not Scomo or Albo!).
My email is mirrabucca@gmail.com

I don't think Choco would mind if I did a quick update on the Hudson.
It's ready for the road. Just waiting for engineering (December) in time for the CRAKK run.
