Minerva's seem to turn up for sale often enough, a "cheap" way into Series one ownership I suppose but you don't often see them out and about.

Great work Mark, fine little engines. They seemed to find their way onto all sorts of interesting things. In your case, Hamworthy seem to have made a very lightweight engine very heavy!

Hi Dan, yes itís a face seating valve. Iíve now relieved the centre face of the seating now so there is only the required area in contact. It lapped in easily and worked a treat this time.
