While I am on the forum, I might as well ask if anyone could help. I received an engine of about 1921 that had been left in very bad conditions. It was solid and the only way I could get the barrel off was to cut through the rods.
This left a barrel with the pistons welded in situ and the very unenviable challenge of how to get the pistons out. When I then found the head section had a crack, I accepted defeat, but was lucky to find another barrel. Then came the case which had lots of cracks. I know my limitations and took it to my friendly welding specialist. He returned it as unweldable as every time he tried to weld up a crack, two more opened. They do say that on a bad day nothing works, but this I have had for ages. I do realise that sticking my head in the sand and hoping it will go away is no good, so the bottom line is this
Does anyone have an early Two speeder case and a pair of slim rods they could spare? I would apply them to the job at the same price, as it is not my way to make profit on some persons kind help Kindest Regards Roger
