  1. Great workmanship and thought going into this project Ian, grand job. I hate to say this but, in the photo of your driveshaft, it looks like the shaft yokes are out of phase. All shafts I've had dealings with, (apart from steering shafts installed at high angles, which don't spin at high speed), always have the shaft inner yokes in line to aid in cancelling out vibrations, not a problem if the whole assembly runs in a dead straight line, but when angles are involved? Not a criticism , just an observation . You don't want that coming adrift at any speed close to your leg The ideal perhaps, would be a pair of CV joints, if there's room.

  4. If you're going to use those steering shafts for drive shafts, how about balance? Those clamping thingy's look a bit offset.

    Probably the reason for the wooden core plug Norm, save money on antifreeze, when it freezes the ice pushes the plug out easier than it would a metal one, and doesn't crack the casting Knowing some of the farmers around here, that seems perfectly plausible. They drain the coolant,(water) out of the combines, irrigator pump engines etc, for the winter, and then wonder why they need new water pumps the following year You also need to use the right type of wood to ensure the coefficient of expansion matches that of the casting

    Will do

    Just had a look through the Cheffins online catalogue for this Monday, only a couple of 4 cyl engines in. They frequently have the 3 cyl engines in the auction. Iv'e seen them go for around £100 or so.

    The next stage in Mole evolution Chris,they dig the tunnels, carry away the spoil, and hide it. They just haven't learned yet to put a cover over the entrance so you can't see where they've been!

  20. Rejuvenating an old rusty Spade

    Great find, I have exactly the same grease gun, mine has 32 grade hydraulic oil in it, it is perfect for oiling my Myford Super 7 lathe. Much better than the original Myford one

  22. Hi Neil, Front tyres are 4.00 x 10 3 rib, rears are 7.00 x 12. Weights on rears are 35 kg's each side of Aldi weight lifting weights. For the show, which was a last minute entry, the wheels got a quick coat of Screwfix "no nonsense" zinc galvanising spray.
