i wasnt bothered any ways mate , even if you were having a go , its my project ,so as long as she gets done the way i want it to,
then i will be happy, and yes im starting to get into the stop moad, as just the casting and a bit of pipe is stopping the engine being finished
but im pottering on with the trolley "slowly trying to do a good job , just need dry weather to work on it as dont want the wood to get wet until varnished up as its all sanded ready for the varnish when the frames axles and engine bolt holes are all there ready for the rebuild after varnish is on

the frame is looking good kev, i have been looking at some timber myself for a frame for my lister and the F & J, - those axle braces will of added loads of strength - did you screw them under?

are you having a steering front?

hi steve
it was the plan but will have to stay fixed axle for now, then maybe later on have some steering axles under there
but having to save up for the next projects fund
but the old trolley was light to lift at the tank end ,so wont be to hard to move around

I find it easier to have fixed axles sometimes, as long as the engine has a light weight end it works out ok. The problem I have with a steered axle is when I'm winching I can't do 2 jobs at the same time. Laughing Laughing Laughing

if you mount the wheels on another section of timber you could use some all thread and a tube with washers to create a steering pin with the rear spaced the same on a fixed spacer. you could have some sort of pin to fix the front permenant if winching.

thats on the lines of my idea but i have a big round .flush fitting steel and rubber engine mount ,to take up the spike load when it fires out of the pivot point ,but the hole cutter i need is £28 so will have to wait for the money tree to get some better follage on Very Happy Very Happy
as will also need another £18 of wood for the second axles Crying or Very sad
so will be a low rider until i get into a better place for the wonga ££££

Looks like the project is coming along nicely, don't forget to give me a shout if you need a lift with the engine. Keep up the good work, the rate it's going I think I'd better get that bottle of beer ready! Smile

metal arrived today when i got home
so unloaded and striped down the old trolley
did some cutting and carving and a bit of drilling so the main axle beams are done just need to cut the fixing plates down to suit timbers width and drill
then get bolted on Very Happy
hoping to finish and bolt the axles on by monday night but thinking i need to space the axle timber beam a second tear higher looking like wheels to close to flywheels for my liking
dont want to lift engine on and back off again 5 mins later "on and stay on is my plan pale pale pale pale
pm me some form of contact other than the forum mate please
