    As the decals arrived yesterday Thought I’d stick them on, I’m not a lover of water slides but there the only ones available. Think it looks better with them on so job done.

    "Found this", she said.

    SWMBO came home from her evening walk round the block with our neighbour. "We've found this", she said. Showing me an old kitchen tap. "It would look nice by the pond". Anyway, after some thought and scratting about, I came up with the feature below. That should get me some Brownie points.

    O&R Air Compressor

    Hi, I found your site while trying to get info on a recent find. From the looks of it, I found a intact and in good appearance, O&R Compact lll Orline compressor, compressor made by WR Brown. I did a quick check of the engine, removed the spark plug, gave it a shot of oil, then removed the disintegrating air filter foam, then gave it a spray of 2 stroke fuel and the damn thing started. That’s as far as I have gotten. I have a few questions, how common are they, and can one get manuals for it, or how do I get in contact with someone who knows, or is somebody looking for these? The last thing I want to do is ruin it with ignorance. Thanks for any assistance, Beer Man

    Aquabug surprise!

    Here is my son enjoying running around the Cuttyhunk Island harbor with the small O&R outboard I had. It used to push my 3 kids and and 2 of us easily everywhere.

    Downsizing in Metalwork

    Wheels are taking shape. Lot of monotonous work machining 20 spokes 1/8" (3.175mm) wide from 1.2mm sheet, then bending to two different shapes to fit- Spokes are fixed to hubs with 10BA c/sunk screws. Still lots of work before these are riveted to the rims and finished-

    C-125 needing some TLC.

    My mate and I picked up a rather sorry looking C-125 today. I forgot to take my camera with me, so no photo's. I'll take it when I go over to his place to try and sort it out. First job will to get it running. Spins over with ease but getting no spark at the plug. It's certainly no show girl. But it's for towing a trailer in the woods of the property that's just been bought. So an out and out worker. Paintwork is pretty rough, but tin ware is straight. Plastic type fender is broken at the back and seat is badly worn/torn. Steering wheel wobbles and that may be because the split dowel is not all the way through. One end is sticking out. Battery needs a clamp and one of the rubber hood catches is missing the hook. It will get a set of ags on the back, as the woods are quite steep. I'll update as things progress.

    Aquabug surprise!

    David, Thanks for the reply. It must be a 1hp (not labeled). Okay, I will search ebay for a intake cover. But it seems like it won`t be to hard to make one. What are my options for the diaphragm? I haven`t tinkered with this for awhile, but would love to get it running. I believe, I cleaned the carb out, replaced the fuel line and cleaned out the gas tank. It has good compression and will start if sprayed with starter fluid. This motor was given to me over 10 years ago with the manual. Unfortunately my 1700`s farm house took priority over all else.

    I see Dad has left you to do all the work again Joseph. I think it's about time you sacked him. Another good video, and nice to see the tyre machine, and you, in action.

    Some friends in Canada asked for a video walk around of our Land Rover 90 so I made a quick video. When it came to driving it, I had a huge surprise as dad said it was time for my first driving lesson

    Hi Ian , Shame you're having to downsize and localise your operation. It's hard having to deal with these kinds of serious blows. As mentioned when we last met up, I know exactly what you and and especially your wife have gone through. I've been doing the same with machines and W/Horses where I only play with small light work now and enjoy the space I now have, but I had a choice, where you perhaps have not. Chin up and just tick over within your limits. Best wishes for you both.

    Yes ime sorry to see you go Ian we have had a lot of laughs over the years and both done some mad things, but I have watched your struggle every day, and I agree you are doing the right thing by going to smaller projects that you can manage, the only problem is my workshop has just got a lot bigger and ime supposed to be slowing down as well😂

    That's the best. Keeps your hands soft and smooth. Gets the grease and oil off as well. Just make sure you wipe the bottle before you put it back.

    O&R carb diaphragm & parts

    I have some of the little steel balls. I ended up buying a bag of each size. If you’re not in a hurry I could probably get you one in November. All my stuff is packed up for a move. Man it’s hard not being able to work on these things and look at them... If you’re in a hurry the diaphragm and gasket can be purchased on eBay... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ohlsson-Rice-Carburetor-Gasket-Kit/113909901615?hash=item1a858f292f:g:YgoAAOSwLApdkpGV

    Rear Wheel Weights for C120

    Almost any rear GT weights will work on Wheel Horse 12" rims. Loading the tires s easier on the axles, though. I drill a second hole opposite of the valve stem and install a second valve stem. That way you can add fluid and allow air to escape, therefore making filling and draining much easier. Windshield wiper fluid works great, is cheap and doesn't freeze until very low temps.
