Hi Matt,
already started on the petter which i will paint as all the old paint is flakeing off and i had to heat the block up which burnt the paint anyway to get the head studs out as
the threads where rusted away !!, as for the amanco i will strip it down to check most of the mail parts and build a new trolly for it got some nice old american style wheels for it will do a looka like of a original trolly, wont paint this engine as it looks good in its working clothes, the trolly its on is a original lister trolly which i will sell on to some one !. Smile
