Only one valve in the set, unfortunately.

Seeing as she has only gone wrong once in eight years, I'll have a go at the repair next week, should be just one low value resistor if I recall my early technical dealings on flyback lines.

a litlle history on no pack-drill for peeps like myself who did not know :-).


Meaning
Say nothing and avoid repercussions.

Origin
Pack-drill was a punishment given to soldiers in the British Army, requiring them to undertake drill (exercise) in full uniform and carrying a heavy pack.
'No names, no pack-drill' is used to indicate that the names of those who have committed a misdemeanor will not be mentioned in order to spare them punishment.
The 'pack-drill' punishment is known from at least 1845, when it was referred to in William Maxwell's Hints to a soldier on service:
<blockquote>
"A full guard house, dozens at pack-drill."
</blockquote>
The 'no names, no pack-drill' mantra is first recorded in a memoir of the Indian Treaty negotiations, which took place between the British and Native Americans in Canada in the late 1860s. This piece from the Manitoba Daily Free Press lists the phrase as an 'old saw' (i.e. a traditional, homespun proverb) in July 1874:
<blockquote>
[Notes taken] At the time of the Indian Treaty of 1873.
No NAMES — No PACK DRILL. — Old saw.
</blockquote>
