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.

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!!!

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!

A week of triumphs and tragedies, I get more done on the Toro bonnet, I get a computer for the workshop, my cousins Volvo fails its emmission tests, it's off a valve, the monitor quits on the new computer. The workshop gets very tidy, and after much faffing about, the bonnet fits properly! It,s all in a weeks work, winter is over, and we are waiting for spring proper to kick in!

A world of a difference this week, I am in somone elses workshop! Normally he would do this work for us, but he is so busy that he couldn't do it for two weeks, but he suggested that we work together on the car, and he can keep his other customers happy as well. He was away Friday, so I spent some time on the Tractor, and went home early to get a covid jab, I can feel my second head growing as I type!!

The Volvo saga comes to a succesful conclusion, I spend a couple of days in the workshop with an old mate fixing some of his antique militaria, and Friday plunder! My good friends across the road appear to have left, and have brought across the last of their bits and peices, all usefull stuff, and happily recieved. I hope they get sorted with their new house, and the new job that he has gone to goes well!, Also the chap I am doing the antique repairs for is clearing his garage, and he brought me a load as well , all useful stuff he can't bear to throw out, so he has fetched it over so I can do it! Thank you all for watching, liking, and of course subscribing! I am getting more than one new subscriber every day now, 34 new people in the last 28 days, welcome aboard to all of you, and thankyou!

The tail end of some "interesting" antique repairs,  Strimmers, an angle grinder, a central heating pump, and a new rule gets applied to my piles of JUNK, which need to be filtered and GONE while the scrap price is high., I model my new leather apron, but screw up the video, and hear that Mums heating is still playing up, and the Volve that we did the cylinder head on has just suffered clutch failure! We are fixing it next Thursday! Life at the moment is "interesting" and busy busy busy!! Thanks for watching, please subscribe, and click the bell to get notification of new videos, and welcome to all my new subs!! Thank you all!

Stripping gas condensing boilers, or "Combis", Making new carbon brushes for an angle grinder, removing the clutch from a Volvo V70 estate, and trying to sort the intermittent problem with mothers central heating by changing the programmer. Intermittent faults are always the hardest to track down! Its all in my week this week! The volvo clutch kit that arrived was the wrong one, so that job stalled, and it appears that the heating fault is not the controller, so it may be the room thermostat! Saturday afternoon I go to look at a field "topper" for the back of the Fordson Major, so we can get the wild areas of the field under control, hopefully without disturbing the badgers, which may have a sett in the top corner of our field, but are more likely to be further afield! Thanks for watching, please subscribe, give me a like or a comment, and don't forget to ring that bell and set the notifications to "ALL" so you don't miss an episode of my thrilling multitasking!

Volvo V70 clutch completed! My derusting solution gets the approval of an undersea corrosion specialist, and we buy a Big Bee pasture "topper", and then have a nailbiting ride home with it in the trailer, but it all ends well!

A short week in which great things are achieved, and we break through from frustation to the sunlit uplands of progress! The wheelhorse bonnet scoop comes together, and the arrival of new shelves means more storage space in the near future, A bit of commando gardening Down the yard, and a portable forge which I really do not know what to do with as yet, but ideas will come to me!

Phil, despite what you say in the video, it would be far easier to cut the tops of the shelf uprights to the same length then invert the shelves than dismantle and rebuild them. They are a pain to do, especially single handed as they wobble all over the place.

You are right of course Andrew, but Mr Pedantic had his way, and they are all in bits, mainly because they need the rust knocking off them, and some paint!

The tail end of the week, including (By special permission) a Saturday morning session, in which paint is applied, more reorginizing is done, and a load of crap takes a one way to the local recycling centre! Enjoy!!

Continuing with the bonnet painting, I get as far as primer, and the job is stopped, because every store stocks the paint, but none stocks the thinners for it!, then a Lidl Led light with a broken switch, which is all metal, and claims to be double insulated, but in my humble(LOL) proffesional opinion, it isnt! Then on to those bloody strimmers, rebuild both carbs with new diaphragm kits, and the Mculloch is finished and running, the homelite is all back together, but waiting for some silicone fuel pipe. Overall, good progress and tomorrow and Friday I am joined in the workshop by my dear wife, who insists that she will not appear on video, Thats a challenge!!
