Agree entirely.

An early blog entry for this week, the drop links are now made and fitted temporarily to their respective outside crossheads. Next will be the outside connecting rods, hopefully, these won't take as long as the crossheads...🙂

Well no blog entry this week due to the mill throwing a wobbly and thus stopping me in my tracks with the connecting rods, I had hoped to have them finished today. Oh well, I need to strip the mill head down and find what's rattling like stones in a tin can....lol Not to be beaten, I took advantage of this downtime and revisited the pipework on the crossheads. I have added the details in the drop link blog entry. The solitary picture is shown below.

Good afternoon folks, my apologies for lack of blog updates over the last few weeks. As mentioned my mill decided to throw a wobbly which slowed things down somewhat. Luckily it didn't cost money to fix, just stripping down the spindle, repack with grease and tightening the taper bearing collars. This blog entry covers the completion of the outside connecting rods, well accept some final bits which are detailed in the blog. The updates may be less regular for a short while as I'm going to be giving my classic car some much needed TLC, it won't stop the updates but will mean my time is split for a while.

good day all

A couple of quick videos to share with you guys...rolling test after fitting the outside rods (tolerances are crazily close in some areas) and a short overview. I'll do a proper 'walkaround' video describing the various oiling points and fine details soon.

I don't how to embed video on this forum so will just post the links.

The new blog entry which covers the first outside piston to be fitted has just been posted, the other one will only take me a short while in the morning and then I'll do the middle which I'll cover in its own entry sometime next week.

hi guys and gals

I have just posted a more detailed 'walk around' video of 4472, hope it's of interest, please forgive the few errors such as calling Wakefield lubricators, Westfield...:)

Thank you, Burnie...:)



Inside connecting rod is now fitted, next job will be a lot of tidying up and a fair number of oil pots to be machined. It's all getting pretty tightly packed in there...:)
