LOL no need to mate as you can see from last but one pic have now got pulley and flywheel off ended up spot welding them to stop them turning.
Made a start on the main engine block tonight god there's a few years of oil and crap ground into it so looks like its going to take a couple of evenings to sort

I wish people would stop talking about Sturt engines as I'm starting to like them too much, even checking them out on ebay for prices, now this could get expensive for me.

Thanks for the offer Abes but I need to sell some engines before I buy anything else, her-in-doors says so. Crying or Very sad

I sold my P5M last year for £25 which was perhaps too cheap, I have seen those 'torpedo' fuel tanks make more than that, but space was needed and it would have been a long while before I got round to sorting it. I went to college next to the Stuart factory in Henley during the 1960's and liked looking in their window at all the green and brass machinery.

In the 60's was it all marine engines that they were making then Pete? That would be the late 60s pete?

Yes Stu, mainly marine engines and water pumps, I was there in 1967/68. They also cast most of the cast iron bodies for vacuum pumps sold by Fullwood and Gascoigne etc as those companies didn't have their own foundries, and were partly responsible for designing the vacuum pulsator system used on milking machines among other things.

Spot welded in the end mate then once off just ground off the weld, the main shaft nut had been mullered by a previous owner so also gave me a chance to clean up the faces on that too

Looking good Abes, Scott engines look to be a good bit of engineer has gone into them, are they easy to work of or all a bit of a fiddle.

Well as promised here's some pics of todays efforts, after doing some homework on paint colour decided on "Ford dark aubergine" managed to get some from Halfords they only had a couple of tins so bought them both will still need another 2 tins to finish the job, well with the 2 tins i had ive managed to give all the tinware 3 coats of paint also gave them 2 coats of laquer, whilst waiting for them to dry thought id make a start on the skids, had some mahogany (an old door frame) knocking around the shed which fitted the bill so they where cut and planed and then given 2 coats of varnish, last job of the day was to start putting the exhaust system back together. pics below have only put one pic of tinware just to give you an idea of colour and finish

I see you've been busy again Abes and doing a great job. I like the colour of the tin ware weather it's right or wrong it's your choice mate. Nice find with the wood for the skids all I've got in my shed is a bit of 1/2 ply Laughing Laughing not quite the same.

Cheers mate, must admit the paint colour was a hard choice did not want to do it drab green from pics thats what the orignal colour would have been so opted for using one of the colours that Scott used on there motor bikes instead i know its not a purist thing to do but at the end of the day it was light green and black when i got it lol ref the wood do what i do mate go to most double glazing firms and raid there scrap wood piles most of them have to pay to get it taken away, ive found door sills fit the bill the best
