She's looking very nice. Is she coming along to Hassocks tomorrow?

Great job anyway, if you fancy doing a few rallies down here this coming season I can recommend a few, not too far from Horsham.

Afraid not, she is still not totally finished but will be soon.
Next season will be a definite for us both, dates and places a must, might have another engine by then as well as my Petter.
Tomorrow should be good, even if the weather turns.

Battled through floods and wind to get to the Hassocks Gas up and sale to get a starting handle for my petter,got one but it has no pin.
Still I have got the handle now,may have to make a pin for it unless Anyone has a spare, will put a photo of it on here later.
Nice to meet Nutgone face to face, nice engines.

Cheers Griz, if it wasn't for you I wouldn't have even known it was going on. Always good to put a few faces to names, so to speak, & despite the weather it was still a good turn-out.

I've taken a few photos so might do a quick write-up on the forum, unless it's been done, in which case I'll gladly add to it.

Good luck with the pin for your starting handle, I'm sure if no one here has one they'll be able to point you in the right direction soon enough, they're pretty good for stuff like that here, there's a wealth of information on these pages & with these folks.

Nice to meet you Griz, sorry I didn't get much of a chance to chat. Having two bored little boys was taking up most of my time Embarassed

Glad to hear you had a good day out guys and you've met another local enthusiast. Griz put some pics up of what you need I'm sure someone will be able to help you in your search.

Thanks Stu
Here are a couple of pics of the handle, I am wittling a new handle for it but definitely need help with the pin as you will see.



It needs a clean and re-paint but its not too bad.

I've got a feeling the pins in these have a spring in there too. They act like a ratchet, so when the engine fires up you don't spin round with it. So you need a pin & spring (although it shouldn't be difficult to match up a spring to suit)

That is exactly it, how you get them both in is going to be fun when I have sourced the bits.
Hopefully someone out there has a spare or two. Smile Smile
We will have to wait and see.
Nice to meet you to Ian.

Sounds as if there's a few of you in the area now so you should have some good times at rallies, I find it's best when you know someone else so you can have a good chin wag. Don't know if you'd guessed but I'm a good talker Laughing Laughing Laughing and can spend a full day at a rally just talking to different people I've made friends with, and I really enjoy getting to rallies and chatting, although my wife does get abit fed up when I keep disappearing Laughing Laughing Laughing

You'll always find the stationary engines tucked away in corners or at the back of the field so the public haven't got to come to close to us. Laughing Laughing

As for talking to the wife have you considered an Ipod (sorry it's not an offer of a swap) with my ex I used a walkman but that was a few years back but all things must change for the best including the ex Laughing Laughing Laughing

Missed out on the starter handle. Weather bad and cold so not much done on the Petter for a bit.
Sometimes I wish I was under cover so could get more done.
Hopefully soon.

Griz, if you want something on eBay but can't be there to bid when it ends, just set up a snipe, I use it all the time (got fed up with being sniped, so thought "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em").

Basically it's a good way of keeping to your limit on eBay. Days before the auction ends you input the item number into the snipe service along with your maximum bid, you then leave it & walk away. No obsessing, no need to be there when it ends. If it goes over your top bid then it wasn't meant to be. It also stops people pushing up your bid if you bid early (some sellers have ghost accounts & friends who will deliberately push up peoples bids in order to make more money, sniping helps to stop this & keep your powder dry/cards close to your chest).

Either that or get someone to bid for you. I don't mind, as I've met you. Just as long as you're paying & I don't end up with a Petter starting handle I don't need! Very Happy

Griz I know what is like having to work outside over the winter I've done it now for a few years and it's no fun, it's just a case of seeing how the weather is going to be. A cheap gazebo always comes in handy or a tarp and bungee cords and mate your own shelter. I've 2 sheds and still end up working outside because I can't fit everything into the shed. Hopefully getting rid of my small shed new year and replacing it with a slightly larger one just to work in no storage.

There's never enough of it. No matter how much you have, it's never enough.

Very true Nuts, Mike had a large shed built not long ago and it's still not big enough, were never satified about the size we have Embarassed yet there's always someone worse of then us. I need a shed just to work in no clutter or engines that's not being worked on.

I might have had a bit of luck, the farmer who is letting me use his shed has decided that he needs to clear one of the other sheds and has said if I give him a days help, I can use the cleared shed to strip down and rebuild.
Just waiting for him to tell me what day he wants me.
It will be hard day but well worth it.

Sounds like a very good plan. You need somewhere under cover really, just a corner would do you. Best of luck with that & make sure it's a good spot he gives you Very Happy

Griz sounds like you have it sorted now and don't forget to have a good look at things from the old shed before their thrown out. You never know you might find a nice set of wheels or an old well pump.
