Bamford Tulip Top

Post by Hughesy on Sun Apr 04 2010, 17:18

Hello all

Thanks to Nigel (kl80) i picked up this today a nice bamford tulip top.

The engine has run all afternoon and not missed a beat, sounds great.

Heres some pictures of the engine this afternoon












i have a question what oil do i put in the oiler on top and do i use just normal grease in the greaser.

serial number 3785
any other tips you can tell me on running these hit and miss engines
