That's the trouble with the Ozzies, unless they are thrashing us at Cricket they have no sense of humour...

Yes all very helpful, previous posters are right. I pretty much knew the answers, but I have a history of adopting 'Comedy D's' and as such thought I'd give every one the chance to have a bit of fun!

I must admit to laughing out loud at some of your replies!

I have the dating information from DE now it was 'One of a pair supplied to T.E.Green, Skegness, on 24/5/45.'

So it seems it hasn't travelled very far as its now in Horncastle.

I will pass this information on to the owner.

Serious question now, the flywheel on this D has a V belt groove. Was this a random fitting or for a particular purpose?

Regards

Andrew

Looking at The Lister D Story grooved flywheels were fitted as specials from spec18 onwards for Grattons, Christian & Dobbs. No reason is given.

The grooved flywheel could have course been fitted by a previous restorer .

Just because it is there it does not mean it left the factory in that spec .

Was that a comedy act? - I thought he was a real Aussie cultural attaché! Now where's that bottle of peppermint flavoured Burgundy I had put by? ;-)

I think the comment; "there's more culture in a yoghurt pot" is altogether uncalled for...

That's because we have been doing this sort of thing for over 2000 years, you blokes (English word we gave to you) have only been doing it for 200 odd.

I have had a D before that had a double Vee in the flywheel and that was on a milking set, I have wondered if the single Vee flywheel was use on one of these...

As they tend to be run off the flywheel.
