I've mentioned in the past my dreams where I find a new fantastic feature in my Land Rover, such as a second story. These days they've been replaced by anxiety dreams about being unprepared for an upcoming conference. [Every single night. This is getting so old. Oh well. Only two weeks to go and then they ought to stop.]
Today my dream came true! I discovered a new Land Rover feature that I had no idea existed. Slightly less spectacular than concealed living space: my carburettor has a manual piston lifting control. This lets me give the piston a nudge upwards while tuning to make sure that the mixture is correct. Before this discovery I had been setting the mixture by removing the exhaust manifold and observing the colour of the exhaust smoke. This should be a little more precise.
Because my truck has a rare engine and even rarer carburettor this wasn't noted in any of the manuals. It's just a little easter-egg waiting for me to discover. Fun!
