Heck no Mike, bit out of my range I'm afraid! Dave still has it as far as I know, that pic was taken last year at it's first outing.

I stripped the Worthington down a few weeks ago Mike, it was like new with no carbon and the ring's were good. Just reground the valves and made a fresh headgasket and it ran well, we left it running out on the road outside Dave's house for an hour or so while we sat indoors "chinwagging"! Wink

I don't know about the International Mike, I will be with Dave this weekend at Belvoir Castle so I will see what he turns up with!! Dave's ok, he doesn't sell rubbish but doesn't keep engines long either. He has only been an "Engine Man" for a few years but he has had a fair few engines in his garage, he had a full set of Ruston PB's at one time but seems to concentrate on American metal nowadays.

Nothing exotic in my shed Mike, most that I have spent on an engine is £100 and that was a Wolseley WD2! I will pass your message on to Dave, though he may ignore me as I am taking a diesel and he loathes them!! Embarassed I will put some pics up of the rally when I return after Bank Holiday (stopping out for a week as I am at Doncaster for Spring Bank and it is cheaper to caravan for three nights than drag everything home with diesel the price that it is). Not just the Scots that are "carefull" with their cash. Smile

I think Pete forgets to go home, he goes to one rally after another, it must be when he's running out of money and has to lift the matress that he heads back home. I did hear that he was after an old armoured truck to put his engine in and pull his caravan and of coarse keep his money safe. lol! lol! lol! I think he should change his name on here from Foden to Stationary engine gypsy, suits him better.

Our money is well hidden, so much so that even I haven't got a clue where it is! Looking forward to September/October when I get the chance to visit the North East rallies and see what "Money Men" really look like, though I certainly feel inferior when we return home to our Prefab in the Midlands and have to start selling the Big Issue to make ends meet. Our dream is to be able to live in The Earl Of Durham (Stationary Stu's) area where money is no object, but alas it remains just a dream. Embarassed If you think that Jonesy is loaded Mike you aint seen nothing until you take a trip to Stu's! Shocked Shocked




There you go, I too can write a load of tosh as well as anyone. Wink

Pete.

Ok I'll own up everything that Pete saw was on loan from cash convertors, just trying to impress. And the caravan I'm after is to live in as the rats and cockroaches have taken over my home Sad things are getting that bad I'm thinking about mugging the Big Issue seller but need someone to distract there bodyguard first. I like to chat with you boys from the south as it's the nearest I get to money.
