  3. I will ask him on Monday Dave.
  4. Great news, thank you.
  5. Hi All, Back up to Cannock on Monday to try to get to the bottom of a few niggles i have, one being the Water cooling. Looking at another gents video on here, it would appear that he has water coming in from the outside and pumped around the engine before going back out. The one we looked at, only appeared to have a small header tank. Am i missing something or is that the norm for the earlier engines? The engine number given suggests the build was around 1923. I did spy the big offset spanner in the cabin, which was similar to one used to open the Water Cock, on another boat.
  6. Hi BEngo, If it was just a clean up i would be in there tomorrow. The engine was a thing of Beauty and the paintjob, by CTS, is fantastic and taken her looks back to look like a traditional Boat. Unfortunately, there were some issues we couldn't get to the bottom of as the man that fitted her out is no longer with us, so challenges are there. That being said, the Engine and Body is sound so just need to work out what i want to do with her inside and of course the costs involved. An example of that would be the solar i want to install. That must be the lowest profile panels i can obtain, as it is important to show of all her lines in their current form without ruining them by panels sitting proud. Sound Anal, but want to do Alan and Barbara proud and make her look the best i can. Unfortunately i cannot post the video of the engine running on here but if anyone wants to get excited, as i did, PM me and ill try to send it by email.
  7. Evening Dave, Just got home, 20:15, and thanks very much for all your help today, very much appreciated. All the guys there were very helpful and informative. Just need to sit down tomorrow and go through all the bits and bobs that need doing and see if the owner and I can reach a deal. Engine and Shell was superb but she is just suffering inside.
  8. Thanks John. Downloaded the other day but appreciate your input. One of our members, on here, has kindly arranged to meet me so fingers crossed.
  9. H R Ricardo. His factory is still going strong and only down the road from where i live in Shoreham By Sea. I knew he invented the Injector with a swirl chamber, but didnt realise he was such a prolific engine designer. My life is being taken over.
  10. Appreciate you trying. Thank You As easy as that then. 🙂 Thanks for the info.
