Rather neat. Be interested to know about the brakes. Inertia collection?

Ok - I managed to get the head, cylinder and piston off tonight - here are my conclusions on the cause - please feel free to put your comments forward if you think I have got it wrong.

Starting with the spark plug - I think the colour indicates a slightly weaker side of normal (this would cause a small amount of extra heat - so shall weaken the mixture by putting a smaller main jet in the carb.

You set me wondering if in my lifetime people will say about journeys: "I'm glad we don't still use IC engines" !

 What; Villiers 11E's & Styer-Puch AP700's?   ;D

When I was working on a big project Oop North there was always one at Oxenholm (Kendal) Station, selling coffee. An occasional sight in London too.

Also in London I am starting to see quite a few of those lovely old Citroen H vans (corrugated like Junkers planes and roof panels). They are usually used for selling drinks and or Street or Festival Food. There was always a Citroen H at Guilfest and Squeak and myself often got our breakfast from it.

The last photo on the previous post is of the spare wheel bracket (the spare wheel being one of the extras I requested). Don't fancy splitting a wheel rim and getting the puncture repair kit out on the side of a busy road!!

Its that time of the week again - and I have some week 7 progress photos. Alan has informed me that he has now reach a stand still on the build as he is waiting delivery of critical items in order to progress - so next week may be slow progress (I think he deserves a holiday as he has done exceedingly well - single handedly)!!
