Well after a bit of fiddling and taking advice/suggestions etc from forum users, I now have the engine sorted, it sounds (to me) OK, starts very easy too, listen to the snap of the ignition switch just before the engine starts LOL

just need a choke cable, and the exhaust engine pipe has to be welded, but I need a hoist to do that job, anyway Thank you to those who responded, cheers Dennis :)

G'day Dennis,

How did you get on with the exhaust?

It looks like there is very little clearance between the engine down pipe and the winch drive shaft, do you need to bend the exhaust to solve this issue?

Any photos of your solution would be great, I am about to tackle this one myself soon.....

Cheers,

Mike.

Great effort, if only mine was so simple.
If you don't want all those shiny's I can give them a good home with the medical display of our WWI group ;)

G'day Dennis

How is the model train building going? I remember seeing a photo of a train in your workshop some years ago.

Nice to see someone else with too many hobbies. Not to worry, you won't die of boredom!

Hi Denis
I like your train. It looks like it is a real labour of love, I would like to see more of it if we could.

Looking good there Dennis,

And congratulations on your retirement!

Having seen what you could do when you were working, I'm really looking forward to seeing what projects are in the works now that you have a bit of spare time :)

Outstanding work there Dennis :).

Going by the prices that are expected at this UK auction, you may want to finish it off, sell it and add some dosh to your retirement fund ;)

Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed reading about you hobby.
As a Fitter & Machinist myself, I found your attention to detail amazing.
Great job.

Thank you for the compliments gents, Murray I think some of this small engineering attention to detail got into overkill when I started with Land Rovers, I'm at a standstill (kind a sorta) as I have dismantled my mill/drill I bent the spindle (about 4 years ago) and I'm waiting on a replacement, so I have put myself and the good wife into doing a couple of jobs that had been on the to-do list for a while, we replaced a 6.2 meter length of guttering on a carport off the house and put up a 3.3 meter length on a new carport that covers the Series 1 that only needs a horn and get it registered anyway this morning I have emailed a supplier of model engineering supplies up on the gold coast, hopefully he will respond as the local person who is a 10 minute drive away wont answer emails/phone calls so I have given them the flick atm, anyway I will post some more information re the loco later tonight, cheers Dennis
