    Ransom Roller.

    As most will know, Jonathan, (expeatfarmer), has sold most of his collection of Ransom crawlers. He did have two large Ransom reel mowers. These attracted no interest. So Jonathan removed the engines and made a roller out of one. Another friend of mine bought that off him after I took him to see it. I bought the remains of the other. Below is what I got plus the handles. First mod was to trim the bottoms of the sides, so they wouldn't dig in when behind one of my garden tractors. Next fit the handles. But in front instead of behind to make the draw bar. Two of the side offcuts were made into plates. Utilising the holes already there. A pin off the Cabstar tipper I once owned, makes a good hitch pin. Behind the Sears/Roper ready for a trial. Worked grand though the roller could do with being a little wider. Width of the wheels. But I can't do anything about that. I can offset it on the Sears hitch if I need too. Next job is a frame for the top to carry weights.

    Orline Cutoff saw

    Finally getting to this project. I thought it was going to be a fairly straightforward tear down but NOPE this thing had surprises at every turn. I even had to drill out a couple screws. It’s finally all apart now. The paint isn’t in the greatest condition (looks better in the photos than it actually is) but I’m planning to keep it as-is. It would look awesome fully repainted but I’m probably not going that route on this one. The engine is a real mess...

    Quick fix.

    Ten minutes after mowing this afternoon, the C-125 spluttered to a stop and refused to restart. Pushed it back to the workshop and after getting my breath back, investigated. Plug sparking ok but dry. Was going to check the points but as I knelt to remove the cover, I noticed petrol leaking from the air filter. Reached up and turned the ignition key. Engine turned over and petrol flowed out of the carb. Removed the float bowl which was clean inside. Rattled the float up and down, while turning the key and fuel came out. Then gently held the float up and fuel stopped flowing. Put the bowl back and tried starting again. Engine fired up and no sign of fuel leaking out of carb. Finished 2hrs of mowing with out any more problems. I reckon a speck of dirt had been stopping the float needle valve from seating properly.

    Will they be big enough?

    My first job this morning was to sort out the recoil starter on his wacker plate. There was a broken pin inside the mechanism. To cut a long story short, failed to fix it. Reverted to the good old fashioned way of cord round a pulley and got it going. Ramp in workshop doorway got wacked down. Put the guttering up on the right hand side of the carport. BTW. A bat has taken up residence in part of the middle truss. Bat droppings on the floor. Some kind of sheet is going to be fitted below where it roosts. Otherwise Fiona is going to be kept busy. Final job was some work on the Case tractors hitch. It has a missing pin and still has. We couldn't find anything for a suitable temp' replacement. Not bad for a 32 year old tractor. Rear gable end of workshop was finished yesterday. Makes the roof seem higher. Digger has a nice new cab on now, after being hit by the runaway tractor. It was an insurance job and even came back with an air freshener in.

    Mk1 Trojan

    Hi All, Our family has which I have just been helpfully informed by one of your members a MK1 Trojan Tractor. We will be looking to sell it not through not loving it but due to not wanting it to deteriate. It runs nicely and is in very good condition but in the right hands could be put back to its glorious former self. My Dad put running boards on to stop us dragging our legs underneath (which I can remember doing) but other than that it is as we bought it in the early 70s. I will attempt to attach pictures so if they are not there now they will appear soon after. Any questions or comments please fire away. Cheers Neil

    Ohlsson & Rice: Mono-Line Chainsaw

    I think you guys are awesome! I love how you rebuild! These days everything is disposable and not many could fix anything if if it was serviceable. I grew up in awe of people like you and my dad. When I grew up I wanted to fix things just like he could. I have gravitated toward those that could, and tried to learn as much as I could and now, for a girl, I’m pretty handy. Sometimes it’s lonely in a world full of people that look at you sideways because you want to repair an item instead of buying a replacement. Trouble is the really don’t make them like they used to. You can’t buy yesterday’s quality anymore. But this you know. I just wanted to let you know I think this site is pretty cool and filled with awesome folk. Thanks for being you and thanks for being here.

    O&R .23s

    Hello, I recently acquired 2 O&R 23s for a very good deal. I've been flying glow engines in my planes for about a year and a half now, but wanted to get into gas and these little engines seemed like a great start. If I get them running good I might even put them into my RC DC-3 :). I already have both engines taken apart and the internals are quite clean. Pleasantly surprised for engines that can be as old or older than myself. I'm going to mount a carb on both to convert them to R/C. I'm not really sure on how these engines really work, specifically the spark/ignition part. I know back in their days there were ignition coils to produce the spark. Those small coils seem few and far between now so I have been trying to find alternatives. Has anyone used CDI on these old sparkies? I have bought an used CDI unit to test it out. What else can I use to run ignition with these engines? Any help would be appreciated, Noah.

    O&R Compact R/C Boat Engine

    Well a couple of days ago I got all the old paint stripped off the shroud using Dumont Peel Away 6. I got it primer yesterday and today I painted the Ace Hardware Banner Red to it. It's really glossy,even better in person. I might clearcoat it,but not sure. I need to see if a local hardware has the small pull starter rope and then put the pull starter back together. Probably going to be fun and then on to putting the new decals on.I'd like to find or make a soup can type fuel tank for it .If all else fails I could get a round r/c airplane fuel tank,if I can find one big enough. I may even try starting it after all is done.

    More done on the workshop today. The finished carport. Dunc built the store room wall and fitted the door last week. Guttering down the right hand has to be fitted yet. I thought we'd done it. Plenty of room for the two Volvos. Workshop when I arrived this morning. Das, the joiner, soon finished the last bay. Dunc and I fitted the side rails while Das, started on the left hand side. Dunc fitting blocks to support the side rails. Used the C-125 and trailer to bring up the service door and frame. Which was then fitted. Front rails also fitted. Dunc fitting the cricket bats. If you saw them before fitting you'd see why they get that name. Das fitting the outer cladding boards. He was up and down that ladder all day. Oh to be young. And before anyone says what was I doing. I assisted Dunc with the side and end rails and kept Das supplied with boards. Also tided away rubbish.

    Bill and Ben out from lock-down

    Bill and Ben came out from lockdown finally to get ready for a working weekend with the club, it was only a small meeting for members only but very enjoyable to get away from the house and catch up with friends.

    Orline Cutoff saw

    I’ll add some more photos later but I’m now one with O&R... while working on the cutoff saw I was trying to remove a set screw/bolt with quite a bit of force. The slotted head snapped and the screwdriver skewered my hand between my thumb and pointer finger. I ended up at the ER yesterday and when they did x-rays they saw a piece of shrapnel. Apparently half of the screw head that snapped off went with the screwdriver blade and got lodged deep in my hand. I go in for surgery tomorrow morning for them to try to fish it out. You can see in this first photo the half of the screw that chipped off. Piece of the screw removed from my hand this morning...
