Re: Carbon remover

I understand where you are coming from Keith. But, the pH you want is 7. 7 being neutral. 0 pH is extremely strong acid and pH 14 is extremely strong alkaline.

Mobile phone service is about 2 - 3 km away for those using Telstra. The range is about 25Km out of Co...

Suggest that you check your firing pin. also check and make sure that there is not too much heavy lubricant on it. You might benefit by stripping the bolt down, washing it in degreaser and re...
