In the mid '60s I was being checked out on either a Scout or an Allouette (my memory's not that good any more!) and there was a persistent problem with the engine start relay. An erk with a small hammer was required to tap the aforementioned object to make it work and spin up the turbine. I was told the electrical cables were too small causing the voltage to drop below the operating requirements of the relay. Does anyone else remember this or is it just a delusion brought on by old age and an excess of blood in the alcohol stream?
