Did you paint the inside of the hopper with anything? Or is it just a trick of the light?

I'm considering coating the water jacket internals with something on my Stuart Turner, but not sure what. Was considering emptying a bottle of Kurust or Jenolite in there & sloshing it round a bit.

My brother keeps saying that. I thought he was going slightly mad, but now you've said the same thing it gives a bit of credit to what he was saying. (well, either that or you're both mad).

Apparently it leaves a coating on the metal which helps to stop it rusting further.

I don't mind at all. I just forgot to put the lol! on the end of that last post. It always used to be me that lowered the tone, maybe that's one of the reasons I don't go out much any more.

Matt you only lowered the tone as you beat me too it Laughing Laughing Laughing

I've used tea bags in my engines for a few years now, I put them into one of them small mesh bags you get with soap powder tablets and it works a treat.

I hope you dont mean the 1940s and 1950s, Mathew.

There is no substitute for experience.
