Hi mate,

yes this should be up and running for the first of the rallies hopefully !!!

Once ive done all the main bits, just needs to be checked over and replace all the worn out parts on it,

which is the norm on most engines, then you have a good chance of it running right !!.

Yeh i see what you mean looks like you got plenty to get on with mate, and i no what you mean about needing another shed !! got the same problem here thats why needed to get rid of the bits and bobs to make space for the new projects, like this amanco which is 6ft long ! and the tank cooled engines take up even more space, wont be buying any more now for a while need to get these done first and my poor old 5hp petter m victory model still laying in bits !! and thats got a bloody grate trolley as well. Very Happy

It's good to see you again Pete and Happy New Year to you.

Looks as if your getting on well with the Amanco and looking forward to seeing it all up and running.

Hi Matt,
Not to far away waiting for the man in manchester to sort out 4 new piston rings out and inlet valve spring, done carb got new 1/4 bsp brass unions for the fuel lines,
old steel fuel lines rusted badly got new steel pipe for that job need threading up, fuel tank needs pin holes sealing up in top part of parrafin side of tank, mag needs the old paint removed as it is the early type which is all brass! , hone the bore out make new gaskets and rebuild no painting thank god !!, so should not be to bad haha!! need some better weather as well as engine is outside and i aint working in this cold weather !!. So in all sounds a lot matt, but its not to bad just get on with it.

Hi Pete, A little word of advice on lifting your crankpin along with the flys......A safer way to do it is by sliding a fence post or similiar through the flywheels and attaching your lifting gear to the post...this way the weight is spread evenly and you will not damage big end faces or risk bending your crankpin.
