The Travels of a Sears Roper

Recommended Posts

Dearly beloved, we gathered at Johns today for the collection of the Sears Roper where it has been kept for the last few months in a nice warm workshop wrapped in blankets.

It was pulled from the brambles years ago and nursed back to life by Alan and his heeling hands and now due to lack of storage he has to pass it on reluctantly to a new owner.

A very sad day as he tried to stop me loading it into the awaiting Sprinter all without success.

Heres some photos of the proceedings.

Hankys at the ready

Looks like the showmanship winch was stronger than you Alan😄

It appears that boat anchors work better in water. :(

I didn't notice the anchor just saw you pulling the rope

The Roper has arrived in Yorkshire... :D :thumbs:

 

Hope it arrived intact. :fingerscrossed:   We all know the reputation of Parcel Force, :angry:  and the Sutton Courier van is the same colour. :omg:

I've told him you'll confiscate the digger keys, Alan, if anything is untoward. :thumbs:

He'd be blubbing all day if I did.  Don't want John's land to get wet and muddy again. :rain:

OOP's.  I'll check first next time.  :(  Looks like you all had a good weekend, apart from the wet stuff.  Hope you had fun with the Sears / Roper.

  The Sears is now in it's new abode making friends with it's new companions. DSCF0101.JPG.79237fd3a51afcfeac664b93ac3fce39.JPG

 

  I did find that the front spark plug was very wet and the rear dry. New set of plugs in and it's running a lot better. No spitting back in the carb.

A good line up Norm. :thumbs: Don't think the Roper really made friend's with the B115 and the scrap Westwood in John's shed.  Probably why it always wanted to hide away :hide: under sheets.
