slow going

hello everyone,
work on the petter a is slow going at the minute, the engine runs very well and now that the governor is freed up it is also working properly. the engine is on a makeshift trolley at the moment and i am starting to strip the loose paint off it ready for a repaint.

Glad to hear your managing to get some work done Richard, it's to cold for me at present. The Petter I picked up was a 3hp but the rest of the plate is very difficult to read.
