    A few more bits cleaned up, filled and painted. One of the next jobs was to tackle the rusty hood. New piece ready to weld in. The bottom of the hood was in the worst condition, the hole in the middle is only meant to be 5/16" A new piece shaped New tank straps, made from part of the original Got the wheels painted too

  8. Wheelhorse R26, new addition to the fleet

    Could be an A-81/ A-51, they had a B&S engine. I think someone in the UK on RS was looking for one of those

    Next job was to make some missing parts, the first being the slot hitch. I sourced all the pieces of steel i needed at the correct thicknesses taken from Chris' at Newby Hall Cut to size Another part that was missing was all of the clutch set up All welded up Im pretty happy with how it turned out.

    Cheers Alan, I was lucky that the engine I sourced from Chris had a tank with it as I would've struggled to find one that would've fit under the hood of the RJ.

    I tackled the fuel tank next which is a small size so harder to find. As you can see the tank was gunked up, nothing was working to clean it so the only option to salvage it was to unsolder it and clean it properly. In two halves. Immaculate now, ready to solder both halves back together, I also found some small pin prick holes which needed fixing. I thought i'd try using silver solder for the first time, I had to get it red hot in order for the flux and solder to do its job, the solder flowed into the overlap perfectly so i'm happy that its sealed properly. The cap had a tab missing so I fabricated a new one and soldered it on, Has anyone got an idea about what the seal would've been like and where I can buy one? Plenty of stainless bought for the reassembly. The original axle seals were missing and you can still buy them at $20 a piece, that wasn't going to happen so I turned some steel tube down to the correct dimensions and bough some seals to push into them. They fit snugly over the axle so hopefully they'll work
