Just a few:

Bisoprolol - heart regulator.
Furosemide - diuretic - water reducing tablet.
Spironolactone - diuretic - ditto.
Betahistine - recent addition to counteract vertigo, possibly caused by the cocktail I am taking.
Arimidex - hormone tablet to reduce Estrogen which is what 'my' cancer feeds on.
Adcal-D3 - Calcium supplement to counter bone damage from Arimidex.
Rivaroxaban - Anticoagulent.
Entresto - new combination drug, ACE/ARB suppressant/inhibitor. Entresto is the trade name, Sacubitril/Valsartan is the drug.

In some respects it is quite interesting, except that you come to realise that it is YOUR heart that's being damaged, not someone else's.

Stuart,

If I remember correctly I take more than Peter does as we've discussed this in the past and I certainly take more than your mum everyday plus three injections, I'm Diabetic.

Sounds like I should count myself lucky having something that's untreatable!, I just have an inhaler to use when needed.

If we can enjoy our toys and get to shows, that's all I need.

I had to have Enoxaparin injections for a while, 180mg every night, self-administered, that was no fun.

It was a Warfarin substitute while I was having my main Chemotheray course.

The only problem I had with injections was that I had to convince myself I wasn't stabbing myself the needles are so small I don't feel anything and sometimes I bend a needle and dont realise i've done it until I remove it.
I dont worry about the tablets etc as they keep me fit and well "ish"

One more load and that will be all the spares moved.

Had a call from Green & Carter Ltd today, they apparently patented the hydraulic ram pump in 1774, one of their guys has bought a small boat with a S-T engine and I was able to give him dating info over the phone.

He wants some spares as well, but that will follow.

What is the spares situation re castings for a P5 ? I need a casting for the long double ended crankshaft version. Any version. This will enable me to get my Stuart reassembled and working.

p.s. Borrowed picture. Mine is no where near this.

We have a selection of new and used castings, but not sorted out yet. Which bit do you need, exactly?

I'd quite like the flat back type, just a dipstick.
But the one thing I really do need is a long flat belt pulley with starting hook groove. mI really am getting fed up with pulling the string, too many close escapes.

Not a common fitment, only ever seen it on engines intended for chicken pluckers.
