That starts and runs really well mate. The dishwasher certainly did a fantastic job of the clean up!

Nice to see it running, although I wouldn't envy your actually using it

Thanks for the positive comments, Gents. There's no need to worry about ol' Elmer, she's been my best friend for over 13 years and I treat her as such, she's got a bed in the room to the back of the workshop which is where she retreated to when she saw I was awakening another mechanical monster. She lives with me and comes to work and play with me as a dog should, the only time she's not with me is at rallies where I've found she is very defensive of our engine friends and will attack any unwitting dog that approaches them!

Thanks Phil, and also thank you for the advise about the self extracting Flywheel. If I had not been informed of this prior to removing it I would have stopped in my tracks until I found out why the nut had become tight.

No problem Jamie, spent a while wondering what had gone wrong the first time I encountered one of those.

I've got the Danarm running nicely now and have spent a good while straightening the bar and pressing the splayed guide back to where it should be. I am trying now to source a new or at least better chain however, as the one that came with it as a solid form of corrosion isn't great, it has two teeth missing and one other is damaged, the remainder have lost a large amount of the Chrome plating (this is what is undercut to give the razor edge). If anybody can help with this I'd be very grateful, I've measured up and found the chain is 9/16" pitch, 0.058" gauge and is 66 drive links long.
As it was I couldn't resist giving it a sharpen and humping the gurt big lump into the woods. Not yet perfect, but working!
