Today's job was fitting new reed valves to the carriers and refitting to engine. Pic one shows the engine with the valve removed, pic 2 shows the valve installed and pic 3 shows the inlet cover fitted.

Tere are 8 valves on the engine.

Wow Tony that some size engine. Shocked I like the pic where (I think it's you) your standing over the top of the piston, that shows the size of it. It will be a great achievement to get that up and running again, shame you so far away (I'm unable to drive far) as I'd like to have been able to come and see it.
Keep up the great work and keep us informed of how your getting on please.

Stu.

Hi Stu
I try to get across once a month to work on it. I bring bits home to do. When I get it done they have 3 start-o-matics and a 4 cylinder Petter for me to do!

They are interested in holding a rally there. I already do a car event for them.

If there is enough interest I'll organise it.

Sounds as if you've got a full work load for the next year or two, good luck with them as they will be a great collection to see once there all up and running.

An engine rally sounds a great idea, the main thing to it being succesful is planning the best date so as it doesn't conflict with any other rallies in 100 mile radius. Also plenty of advertising helps.

Good luck,

Stu.

I was having problems with the big end on number 4 locking the engine when we tightened it up. I had scraped the bearing in as the cylinder had been removed but when bolted to the con rod it locked. Investigation showed the big end bolts were slightly bent. Anyway we set about turning 2 new ones. The thread was 1 1/8" Whit and I cut the thread on the lathe
