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!

Its on! The week went quite well after I stopped procrastinating and just got on and did it! Another breakthrough was the fact that I realised that the vee belt was dragging in the pulley, and stopping the engine spinning properly at start up. This is the belt which is the correct size for the clutch drive, but is obviously too tight for jockey pulley running, I need to see my belt man and get one a couple of inches longer.

Excellent Phill

People who watch via a Madmodder link donít get the like and subscribe buttons, whereas if watched in YouTube they do. Might explain your anomaly?

It might Andrew, and thanks for your sub!! I have been getting 15 to 20 new subs every month, but the stats still says 80% of viewers are not subscribing. However all the other stats seem to be going in the right direction!

Another week of finishing off and troubleshooting on the Toro 2CV. I eventually got to the bottom of the carb fault, but it meant taking the carb body off again, which means it is going to get a thorough clean and shakedown before it goes back on. Thanks for watching, and don't forget to subscribe, like and comment!

At last! The engine, mainly the carburettor, is sorted. multiple problems have been fixed, and now she starts easily, ticks over slowly and throttles up smoothly. I can now get on with the finishing off!  Need new alternator bearings, they are noisy, and the new coil will arrive next week. If only I could find that ignition switch!!! Thanks for watching, please subscribe and comment.

Well folks, the week started badly, with bitter cold and snow, and ended better, with bitter cold, snow, and a new to me Holbrook Model B Number 9!! It must be said that a lathe is about the only thing that would get me out in this weather, and I nearly froze, but it was worth it!  The lathe is now stripped, and all the bits are at the workshop, except the bed, chip pan and legs, which we will collect next week, with the big trailer. Thank you all for watching, please comment, like and subscribe, and don't forget to ring the bell, or you wont get notified when a new video comes out!

The bed and legs were collected on Tuesday, in a misfiring Volvo estate and trailer, and then negiotoated up the yard, much fun and stress ensued, but we did it without wrecking the bed or straining any foofoo valves!.....or videoing it, it took to long and was too scary! I have decided that next week, with the improving weather, I shall get in earlier, and try to split my time between the Toro Tractor, and the Holbrook. It will be interesting to see if willpower overcomes tinker power!
