Busy weekend

Post by Abes on Sun Mar 11 2012, 19:01

Well due to a weekend with good weather thought i would sort the garage out to give me some storage for my engines, well after half a dozen hours and 3 transit loads of rubbish to the tip managed to gain some space, so shifted the engines from the workshop today the garage now looks like this. Also managed to have a mini crank up with a run up of the Lister A and D which was great, will try to add some video if i can suss out how to do it lol

No just a duck house mate going to fence off the top 20 yrds so they and the chickens will have that for the free ranging instead of the whole garden that will give us the vegtable plots back and stop them from eating everything lol

Would have done mate but fuel was getting low and i just could not be assed to go and get some lol, cant start the Stuart at the moment yes its completed (well almost) its got stripped threads on one of the drain holes (found when turned over for the first time after restoration water every where) plug had no threads either (plug had been stuck in with some sort of putty) so hole threads need re-cutting and also a new plug made, i know easy job but its getting hold of the gear to get it sorted, plus am thinking of shifting it on as still need some space for new purchase thats coming soon

Abes I had the same problem on the first outing with the Lister G the drain tap had been stuck in with something so I managed to clean up the threads and fit a new tap and it's been ok ever since.
