    Hi guys I have just brought a 1030 to restore but the wiring is in a right state. has any one got a wiring diagram for a gutbrod 1030 or know where I can get one please many thanks Simon
  10. Time for an update! I had to bite the bullet and rewire the ignition coil. I was able to dig enough away as per your suggestion. I then soldered a new fresh length of wire to them both. The longer one was for the new stop switch wire. Also got some new fuel line too. 2mm inside diameter in red, this wasn't intentional but suits the engine nicely. Rather snug on the tank nipples, no need for any clamps! May need to shorten the carb fuel feed as it's a little wedged in there. We'll see. Epoxied the HT lead base and stop switch and armature loop for long term stability. Really didn't like the way it looked, almost like Vaseline! Managed to sort this out nicely with a 'paintbrush' style black permanent marker. Also ordered a new spark plug shoe/boot, couldn't get them in singular form, so if anyone needs one, I'll have 3 spare. Shall fit this once it arrives. In two minds as to whether I should paint it fresh or keep the rustic original look. I had a spare spring and washer and, it seems functional. We shall see. Everything is now virtually finished. I'm just waiting on one last part for the carb now. Few more bits arrived this morning too: Any thoughts, or last minute things you can think of to check before it comes to running it again for the first time? Cheers,
  11. Hello Nigel,


    I noticed when researching batteries that you can get them cheaper. I need a 12 volt 32 amp Hr for my C 160 automatic to fit the battery box and wondered if you could supply one or point me in the right direction. Thanks.

  15. Rotaped Tracks

    Sorting through some peat harvesting photos I came across this article about Rotaped tracks from 1941 I thought the Monro conversion would be of interest. Make a good project to build a set for a Wheelhorse. I have scanned it and will post first page to see if it works.
