Had a good weekend, engines, beer, food and camping, what's not to like
Seems pics of my compressor set are a bit scarce

I'll forgive you then Rob
Considering I bought the thing for a project, that doesn't involve the engine I was amazed at how well it ran. I was told it had not been started for 2 years, and the fuel was at least 3 years old. It started up ok, sputtered a bit till warm and than ran faultlessly for the rest of the day, was also the last engine running
Can't understand why I didn't get a plaque for it

That's not going to happen, strip down, paint fit Honda GX120 and call it good.
But because Chris liked it so much I may couple the 2 stroke to a small pump for filling engines cooling tanks an such like from the IBC's for next year.
