MORE new engines arriving soon....??????????

Post by mike d on Wed Jun 22 2011, 22:12

HI ALL....
found these to day in a pig shed in DORSET....
so looks like they should be arriving soon.....
both are sized solid,just the way i like them,more of a challenge..
my eldest son put me on to them,as hes getting into them now and i think he wants the LISTER....
kids cost me to much money,oh well enjoy it while i still can....






sorry for the pics being up the wrong way,but my son took them...
regards,mike...

its strange how things work out,i was trying to buy one in the states a few months back,but couldn't sort the crating and shipping out,due to the VAT..
then my eldest tells me of these 2..well how strange is that,and its on my door step so to speak..
as for his lordship,hes got no room left now....
when you have finished your shed Matt,perhaps i can put them in your shed... lol! lol! lol!

Mike great find after looking in the States for one. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Mike you'll just have to see if you can get a lock up cheap, or another thing to look at is around here theres a lot of storage places opening up using old shipping containers, takes a few engines to fill a 40 footer and you could always build another deck for the lighter stuff and see about a girder down the middle with a block and tackle to lift them up and slide them out. Don't how much to hirer but don't think it will be that much as people use them for furniture, old cars etc.

Mike in this area there is storage places setting up using old shipping containers there not to expensive and you can get a few engines in a 40 footer, maybe worth a few phone calls to check out prices if you can find any local.

I'll have a look Mike, might be an idea if someone that has some land near you as the containers are great for storage and not that expensive to buy.
Here is the sort of thing I'm on about but this is the North East, I could get a container 8x30 feet for £17 a week not to bad if you could get someone to share it or you could get smaller one and it be cheaper.

Hi Mike, I have some paperwork for the M type somewhere...manual,parts list etc. let me know.

Spares are easy ..Hit n Miss.

Google John Hamminik for his excellent web site, John is no longer with us sadly but his site is,lots of information there.

Worse bloody engine I ever had!!!!!! Spent a fortune on it,it now resides in Newcastle with a decent guy.

Easy to work on though and a pleasent machine when working as they should. Bill.
