I find that works for me too Nev. If i mix in 25% of Jack Daniels it loosen's me up no trouble.

Well after a lot of frustration and cursing the engine ran for the first time today , I had to replace the pistons which I managed to track down in Canada , the starter motor hadn't enough life in it to spin the engine over but I was very lucky to be given a modern one that fit straight onto the engine , the Dynamo isn't fitted yet , it needs a bracket making to hold it in place , there's a drive shaft that goes from the back of the Dynamo to the water pump .
Still a way to go yet but at least it runs

Picture is a bit blurry, sorry

Always a good feeling to hear them running for the first time

That's a nice piece of kit. It really does beg for a boat to fit it in. Well done.

Mrs B would disagree with you , we went for a trip on my brothers canal boat once and she had to take motion sickness tablets !! No waves obviously but people moving about making the boat rock was enough !
