Default Loading up ready for Oakley next weekend

Because of my health issues I decided that I would sell my 1927 Lister L as its to heavy for me to move about anymore, its sat sheeted up for at least the last five years under some trees down the side of one of my sheds, where it had sunk into the ground, at the bottom of the garden so this afternoon Exgreeney and myself got my trailer and van, the anchor, as far down my drive as they would go then attached the winch to the trailer and pulled the cable out all the way to attach it to the turn table towing arm. With Peter steering the engine we pulled it across the grass until it was within twenty feet of the trailer, at this point I moved the van and trailer forward to give space to fit the ramps to the trailer with space behind to steer the engine into position to load onto the trailer.
Once on the trailer we chocked the wheels, oiled the engine and cleaned the magneto points, we poured some petrol into the carburetor and after three turns of the starting handle the engine was running, we were really pleased as she had stood so long, a quick video was taken of her running and she was then sheeted up with other items for next weekend.

Quite the contrary - no rain (or snow!) reasonable temperature and light wind. Not normal at all.

Is there any stuff I'm supposed to be taking (apart from exhaust for Daz)? I'm in a mood to shift stuff so if you are thinking "didn't he have that rusty Otto and Langen he's never going to do anything with" now's your chance!
