    Looking at the chassis this afternoon and noticed a few differences, The 3/4 rod that holds the pedals is 3 inches short, the idler pulley bracket is at the wrong angle, the small flat plate that rubs on the belt is wrong, the tags that hold the belt cover on are in the wrong place and holes in the wrong place I think I’ve sorted now, I’m not putting the bendy bit on the pedal bar as i think its for the drive belt to the deck and I’ve only got one deck.If you look at the photos you can see what I’ve done.

    Well I’ve sanded the few coats of paint and rust of the transmission now ive got the pulleys off and ordered a set of oil seals from Bearingboys, they are so helpful and should have them Tuesday or Wednesday. Ive put a few coats of primer on just to protect it while I’m putting them together.

    Early update as I’m going out tonight, I managed to get the other 2 track-rods done this afternoon so another tick of the list.

    Today I’ve been looking at track-rods, all the ones i have seem to have play in them and as ive got a few ends in stock I thought I’d make some new ones without buying anything. Started with a length of rod cut into 4 lengths and machined down in the lathe and threads cut. Done two to see if they work which they do so I’ll make another pair tomorrow.

    Today’s activity was to remove the steering wheels from the column, anyone that has removed steering wheels from wheelhorses will know the problems with the roll pin removal and the wheel so with lots of banging several sessions of heat and cursing they gave in.

    On Thursday 7th November saw me heading south to Newark in torrential rain resulting in parts of the A1 closed due to flooding. The camping area was very light compared to last year, exhibitors were down in numbers however we were as usual inside here are a few photos

    Nice project Chris. I made a new bush for the C120. Used bronze and pressed in. Too expensive to ship one over and not available here.

If that doesn't work for me, I will reset your password to that password and we try again. I have never seen this issue before, so it's all new to me. Sorry you're frustrated, but to get you sorted may take a couple iterations, but it will get fixed if you decide to stick with it for a little bit.

    New Workshop Build

    Hi all, as most of you will know I'm moving on to pastures er.. smaller, which means a new workshop in my garden. This is really a tale of 2 sheds and a demo-cabin as you will see.. As this is a budget build I needed to find/use as much recycled wood as possible, which is where shed No 1 comes in. A big thank you to my Wife's daughter Lisa for letting me have a shed that wasn't going to be used.. No photo's of it before it was taken down, but here's one showing how it arrived at my place This is where the demo-cabin comes into things. There used to be a company trading at the end of the nursery (when my current workshop is) that sold posh wooden cabins.. To show their wares they had a demo cabin built that had different cladding on each side ond inside! Companys come and go, and this one went leaving the demo cabin behind for at least 5 years, maybe longer.... HHmm... Look at all that usable wood thinks me... One chat later and I had bought it for the amazing price of £50 Of course no photo's of the cabin before Rob and I started taking it apart, but here's a couple of the naked frame. The only problem using used materials is they tend to have lot's of nails/screws/big staples holding them together which means a lot of the timber came off looking like this! All the wood and tools were transported about the site on this trolley thingy. Having taken the timber off it needed to be stored somewhere.. yep the workshop! This will give you a clue as to the vast amount of wood came off the cabin and this is only the ouside, inside and roof cladding! The cabin also coame with this funky double glazed window that opens both ways!

    Here is MY bike with the NOS P5 and early SQUARE Tas mount. I was planning to restore the blue frame and put the P5 into it. Then I'd have TWO left on Earth lol Oh, and BTW H Killackey, contact me about making coil covers. I have two, I believe.

    Sorry to hear you're having problems Alain. Would be sorry to see you go and your absence would leave a large void here. Persevere and try Karl's advice. Don't ever let any IT gremlins grind you down. I've just beaten Ford UK into submission with their website after a frustrating 3 weeks (punch air)......... ....and I'm no expert!.

    O&R Tiny Tiger Parts

    That looks like a good donor engine , I used a bare engine block of similar age for my TT repair*, that ensured the parts would fit together with the remaining original parts. *My failed TT engine was SN #035753 (Type 111), it was bought as a pile of bits, it was missing the crankshaft, piston, con-rod and con-rod bearing. The donor engine block was #012461 (Type 98) which had been used for a RC application by a previous owner, hence lots of missing parts. Before & donor engine. Some pictures from the restoration, it's also the only TT I have with the generator end housing finished in chrome. One of the missing parts was the long truss head screw for holding the generator rotor in place, a new one was machined from scratch, OK I deliberately made it a little bigger in places. David

    O&R Model F with gearbox 900 R.P.M.

    There is the option to make new tanks too, if you can find the similar size food cans*, a screw top from readily available tins could be cut out and soldered in. The original O&R tanks are probably made in the same way as early (steel) beer cans were made in the US, I've seen a few in some of the abandoned mine exploration videos I watch on youtube and they looked similar in size & construction. *I've saved a couple of coffee cans for experimentation.

    New Workshop Build

    Hi Norm, not sure on the size, I will have to have a measure though the odd shape will make it intersting to work out. I should point out that a small part of this will be a shed for all that garden stuff, so I will be losing a bit of space..... But it will keep my Wife happy, so worth it Thanks mate, I hope to be in long before silly season, but that depends on the weather and how much energy I have! Hi Alan, yeah you can't beat a wooden shack, without heating they feel much warmer than a brick/concrete garage.. A few more photo's coming. A small update.. The next bit of frame has gone up, the opening with the two planks fixed accross is where the shed (not workshop) door will go.. well, it will once I've cut a couple of inches off the base and fixed the rotten door bottom. The last remaining open bit of the small end wall has been clad filling in that gap, but I've not taken a pic of that. Rob roughly putting the next door post in place to have a look.. Speaking of doors... Here are the two workshop doors roughly in place.. One door isn't quite wide enough, and as there isn't a long enough bit of wall to get the doors side by side without loosing a window, round the corner they have to go It's amazing what you can get find after a quick chat with the local builder who happened to be walking past.. On the off chance your reading this Sam, thanks for the window This window will go in the back wall at the top to let the sun and heat in.. Free light and warmth.. Worth the agro of taking the wall panel out to fit the window..

    Another issue is claimed CFM from the manufacturer, don't believe any of the new ones. Try to find a 1960's or 1970s petrol station compressor, They are big and even if you have to build a doghouse for it outside its worth it and probably cheaper. You can get by with 10 CFM with a 80-100 gallon tank

    New Workshop Build

    Shed No 3 I actually had already in the garden, but it was showing it's age with a rotten back panel, and load of rot else where.. Still, a lot of usasble panels on it As it tradition, no photo's of it complete, but here's most of it leaning against the bungalow. Under the shed was this mess, the concrete post did come in handy for resting pallets on though Pallets???? Yep the base of the new workshop will be pallets with a layer of OSB Board. Lyla in pallet watch The weather has been against us with this build, lot's of rain most of the time it felt! Eventually the cabin frame came down, here it is along with the posh door that needs some rot sorting out. Best get it all home then.. And before you ask... No I didn't transport this lot on the roof of a car Loads more to follow, but not tonight.. I need to relax with a cider

    Well, the engine arrived this afternoon. It’s incredibly disappointing to receive what looks to be a brand new engine only for it to get damaged during shipment. The new tank was crushed, man that’s irritating!
