Martin,

That is really, REALLY nice. Thank you for sharing the pictures and video. I hope you'll continue to share pictures as work progresses (along with your many other projects; which again, are thoroughly enjoyed).

Green with envy (even if it isn't gas!).

Lovely engine Martin, I'm sure you'll have it sorted soon.
I tend to govern mine on the stroke of the pump, the pump needs to be in good condition with no serious leaks to get the best results. Hornsbys made beautiful engines in my opinion and it's a engine that will give you years of pleasure. Well done.

So was it my tip off to our mutual friend that led you to it? I need to know so I can tap up the vendor for some commission!!

Nice engine. I'm still a little surprised he sold it.

I've no idea what you mean - I used a divining rod to find it - in a cave - in Bulgaria!

Our mutual friend had to get me off his back - I've spent several years trying to liberate his!

Merv - could you measure the gauge for me, as I think one of my problems is I'm over fuelling it.

The gauges were set to particular engines ,fuels, Etc. Just start on a fairly long stroke and adjust back till running nice or what you are happy with. The book says start on full load gauge. John
