fuel tank has been now welded with a drain plug , just a hydraulic fitting with a internal 1/4 bsp thread for the plug . Then the other part welded to a square of sheet as the tank is around 0.5 mm thin Shocked 

and then welded to the tank .





has to flush it out with white spirit and then shove the hose through and now no orange rust is coming out , so thinking i might add a tank filter on the pickup .

was bored out my head while at home sick today with a badly swollen face so i decided to have a tinker and see if i can get the amanco going as the postman brought me a nice new igniter .

here a video , need to fit a non return valve in the fuel line and build the trolley oh and change the exhaust as im sure it restricting the gasses

My one will be good when it's finished. Major hurdle is that it needs a liner. Crying or Very sad

Its not just because its blowing past the rings ?

If so dont worry majority of amanco's blow smoke past the rings as after all how old are they ????

In all honesty I can't remember as it was at a show we took the piston out but I think it was a pretty big one

remember restorating doesnt mean just paint it like quite a few people think .... restoration is mechanically overhaul it and paint it to your finish you like .
