Hi Stew!
 Still around. Not very productive, at the moment.
Waiting for the weather to sort itself out. And, allow me to, "get out there", again....

Hope all is well, with you and your's.

Fixing a VW camper, stripping printers for steel rod, and finally getting the toro 2CV engine running properly! I did drive it backwards and forwards in the workshop, but turned the camera off when I thought I was turning it on, what a plonker! It is seriously a relief that I have got to the bottom of the problem, carb was dry, and fuel pump not lifting fuel, so we know if it will not restart in a few days time that the pump valves are suspect, and the fuel is draining back to the tank. The moral of the story is don't leave engines standing for 20 years, and then expect to put them back into service without a bit of a fight!

John
Nice one John! But....

You think you've got trouble!
 I've just had cataract op, on my left eye. Marvellous job! Everything is clear and bright. Through the new lens.  :thumbup:
The right eye, is still short sighted, and a pale khaki colour.  :palm:

I'm having fun, with single lensed reading glasses.....  :scratch:

My solution was to tap the bore 1/2" X 32 and make a double ended draw bar 10mm X 1.5 , so the head moves less than half the distance of the draw bar , it's still working after 5 years on my MT3 collets .
