I am sure the kids would love to see an old stationary engine running, what a great idea.
The old engine still Looks great Andy, Well done.

It's a credit to you, and the work you put into it. Had it running yesterday, as it been at the back of the garage with not enough room to swing on. First time I had been in the garage since before christmas. Had pneumonia which lead onto blood clots on lung and infection. My first time I have had a stay in hospital, and my first sick days from work in 20 years!
The wife helps out in the infants school as a volunteer, and is in today, so she is having a word with the headmaster about it all.

Thanks. I'm nearly 100% now. Paula did a good job looking after me. She refused to wear a Anne summers pvc nurses outfit though!
The lads I work with were great whilst I was off, checking up on me. My boss was SUPERB, and gave me no pressure on return dates.

I spoke to you at one of the shows, and you said about a clever idea for what to do to restore an engine. (ill pm you if I don't make sence). Still going to do it?
Thanks again
Andy

Sorry to hear about your illness my friend, take it easy for a while and let your Lungs recover properly.
I too had a little problem at Christmas, Mild stroke, Knocked me off my feet for a week and lost all my balance but recovered now and back to work, need to earn a bit more money for buying more engines and paying for the Goddess Petrol
Take care Andy

Cheers Syd,
sorry you aint been too well either.
Think we should have a new area on here for ailments and illnesses!!

How is the goddess doing? Have any clips anywhere of the engine running?

regarding the show and tell, the wife has asked, and we may not be able to run the engine as a farier (that how its spealt?), who may be bringing along a horse!!!
Need to rebuild the ignitor as well, as the insulation broke down.
You are very right regarding the need for extra pennies for engines !!!!!

I have just noticed how there is no spell check when using chrome instead of my normal internet explorer (using a small netbook, as my main pc is bloody knackered (other thread).

I have never seen a spell check on here and I use a laptop with IE.

When you are responding, I think it is somewhere on the right. If I remember, it was a symbol of abc with a tick next to it. May have been an explorer 'add on'.

Yes, I think I'll give it a try... nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say, and it'll be a bit of fun if nothing else! Glad you're on the mend; spring will be here again soon and I think we'll all feel a bit better when we get a bit of sun on our backs. Anyway, take it easy and don't go overdoing it!
