Martin,
Have you tried http://www.theengineersemporium.co.uk i know they used to do gas bag castings not too sure on the size but they maybe able to help you. Also smokstak has some info on there and they maybe able to point you in the direction of fabricating your own.

Cheers Gaz

Garry,

Then he can put a bin liner bag inside and connect it with a bit of garden hose with no leaks and it will work.

Look! I'm going to be bloody annoyed if I have to close my own thread...

All your help is much appreciated, so play nice.

Gaz; they don't appear to do the gas bag castings any more, but that's not really what I want anyway. I guess I was hoping somebody would say; "I've got a box full of those Garretsons - I can spare you one"!

Martin.

Dick - I'm not yet quite ready to discuss the engine; I'm not prepared for the ridicule!

I'll PM my email, I would certainly be interested in pictures.

Martin.

Well that's certain to whet a few appetites for intrigue...
