Lovely trolley, Pascal. I would recommend putting a tie bar from the bottom of the front pivot to the rear axle. It will help to keep the steering axle vertical.

Hi all,

back on my trolley, I've spent my saturday afternoon to disassemble it and rescrew all the moving nuts, I've also welded all of them against unexpected unscrewing. And optional I also welded one of my fingers...
Welded abutments for back wheels.
I also followed your advice Phillip, I fixed a steel bar from the back axle up to the pivot of the front and you were right Phillip, the trolley is more stable...

Hi looks good,
Just one thing how much clearance do you have between the top of the large wheels and the back of your hand when the crank handle is turned?
from the photos it looks like it might be a bit close.

David.

Judicious comment David,

I had a try with the starting handle in automn when I painted the engine
And fortunatelly the engine has a big base, 17cm high.
But you're right David, starting handle is close to the large wheels.

Idem for the flywheels, I remember about 2 or 3cm between the rim of the flywheels and the legs of the roof.

It's a bit tight for the engine but because of the down direction exhaust which must come back either in the center or in the front of the trolley and the water tank must found his place too...
It's like a housing crisis to me
But I'll do my best to achieve.

Many thanks David

Cheers

Pascal
