Default Spec 11 D type

Hi all, as the weather was nice today I decided to dig the 1929 spec 11 D out of the shed that hasn't been run since its last rally. It had 12 month old fuel in and with one swing she fired straight up and ran well. I was very happy with it and all I did was clean the flywheels up. Here is a short video if it.

Thanks Matt

You can see why they were such a popular engine can't you... one swing after months of hibernating in a shed and away it goes, running sweet as a nut. Will it be going out to any rallies this year Matt?

Thank you Jules, it will be at south Cerney this year and hopefully I will take it along to a local rally with my A type in a couple of weeks. Like you said can't be them, most reliable engine I have.

Thanks a matt
