This week I actualy finish the exhaust I have been  procrastinating for nearly two weeks over it, and as my late mate Alfred would have said,  in his thick Dutch accent, procrastination is the thief of time". I will do better now that is out of the way!

The last gasp up to the holidays, but I gopt far more dome than I thought I would, and have got even more ideas for after Christmas, I will be back in the shop in early January, unless it snows, in which case it is anybodies guess as the Langtoft road is particularly treachorous in snow, and it can block up and be impassable in less than 30 minutes! As I type this there is a storm brewing which will bring Greenlands weather straight onto the west coast of the UK, so snow could be a distinct possibility! Have a good holiday and keep safe! All the best!

Phil, put the intake filters on the rear face of the air box so that they are less vulnerable to branches as you drive under them.

Actually I can't because I have put the inlet to the carb to the rear of the air box, but \i am putting an extended bonnet scoop over the whole lot, because of the branch problem, thanks Andrew, hope you get back online soon, I miss your postings!!

Well folks, I dragged myself back to work sftr a pleasant Christmas break, got the air filter finished, and made progres generally, but then, the starter is no longer able to spin the engine! that will teach me not to to fit new rings, and grind the valves in! Too much compression for a starter that is designed to start a 15hp single cylinder engine! I think I have pushed the boat out too far, and too fast, and then tried to ump in, and the obvious has happened! The new starter arrives tomorrow! Thanks for watching, and a strappy new year to you all!
