  1. Bet you are very sad to see this one go.
  2. H, There are more members here in the UK than in the USA (take a look at the member map). There are a number of people who remanufacture parts and have become specialists in specific machines. Personally as my hobby I supply the majority of Ransomes MG spares. Please do not take this as a critisism of your thoughts but the problems of what you suggest are many fold. CNC machines (Computer Numerically Controlled) are very expensive and take several forms plus specific tooling can seriously add costs. I have a reliable number of suppliers who do manufacture parts on my behalf when I do not have the facilities but it can take many years before I see any return on investments made. Establishing precise engineering specifications for parts can take many years of research and may just not have sufficient returns to cover time and costs. Safety is a paramount concern for some parts and manufacture would probably be avoided by anybody charging for the part. Many of our parts are very heavy and some owners around the world have to suffer huge carriage costs whch restricts demand. If your friend has access to specific machines and skills he could off these on the site or VHGMC. These are only my observations and not trying to put you off trying which I applaud and I wish you good luck and success. Stay Safe. Neil
  3. I know very little about the Bristol 20 track but have been asked if I could make replacement rubbers as I manufacture replacements for the Ransomes MG. Currently I have no idea what they might look like other than they are very different to the MG ones so any help would be very helpful. If I believe I can make them I will get some old parts from the person asking for them but he does not wish to strip a track if there is no opportunity to replace the rubbers. Thanks in advance. Stay Safe Neil
  4. I have finally taken delivery of new Amal 244 brass floats for the Ransomes tractors. Contact me if you need one. Stay Safe. Neil
  5. I now have Ransomes MG2 replacement steel flywheels in stock and soon hope to have new brass carburettor floats available. Neil
  6. I am happy to say I will be getting a delivery of replacement steel flywheels for Ransomes MG2 tractors. I took the decision to commission a number of these to be manufactured to help with the common breakage issue. I will not get another batch machined so first come first served. £205.00 plus carriage. Contact me on njarrett@btinternet.com Stay Safe. Neil
  7. I am investigating getting a batch of metal floats manufactured for the Amal 244 carburettor used on Ransomes MG crawlers. Indicated costs would be £80.00 so need to see what people think. Please let me know. Neil
  8. We need to get some serious commitments to order these before we could consider manufacture due to the set up costs. If you do think you need a flywheel please do not sit back and wait for them to be available as currently it appears there is not enough demand.
  9. Jonathan, Maybe worth trying Oakham Treasures.
  10. Not able to offer a piston but this German company are very helpful. https://www.graf-motoren.de/index.php?id=10&L=1 Neil
  11. Jonathan, Happy birthday and to a better year. Have a good one.
  12. FREE a Ransomes MG5 chassis with all gearboxes attached. This was a source of parts and I do not need anything that is left. Buyer to collect but remember it does not have wheels or rollers so will not roll. Contact me if interested njarrett@btinternet.com Neil
  13. Iain, Here is a good UK supplier for these. Springfix Linkages (Automotion Components Ltd) Alexia House Little Mead Industrial Estate Cranleigh Surrey GU6 8NE (UK) Telephone 01483 26 6784 Fax 01483 26 6785 info@springfixlinkages.com Neil
  14. OK, Are you convinced you have a good spark under compression not just in clear air? You can get an indication of this from a spark tell tale in the lead on the installed plug or by using a spare plug touching the installed plug. Neil
  15. Joe, Just brainstorming. Are you totally sure you have the magneto timed correctly The impulse release should be at TDC. with both valves closed. Alternatively have you timed the valves to crank correctly? Neil
