From what I can see it looks one very smart engine .... way to go Mike ... worth every hard earned penny, ya lucky ba****d, yes I'm jealous but It couldn't have gone to a nicer bloke (well except me lol).

Both you n his lordship should be very proud to own some wonderful engines between you's both. Dorset's going to be the U.S. engine heritage centre of the UK soon.

Great engine, very nice buy,

Stu.

You must be well pleased with that one.

Looking forward to seeing a video of it working.

I have notes and diagrams on timing the 'Triumph Line' engines on my site at:
http://www.oldengine.org/members/pml/rvltiming.html

I must get around to making my little 1hp R&Vs look a little nicer



Looking like the 12hp would be nice.

Nice engine Mike, looks better than your boss's engine, that should be restored before Lord's Jonesy's bash then, if you cant get it running, connect it to an electric motor and get a tape player with engine sounds on and no one will know lol! lol! lol!
