Started first go yesterday after fixing fuel leaks. Still needs a bit more tuning but itís a winner.
I might be displaying for the first time this Sunday

Cave is evolving nicely and only one tiny roof leak to fix yet.

Thanks Phil.


Lots happened since.
Did my first display outing at Kiplin Hall nr. Richmond and booked for my next at Newby Hall 4th June.
 1945 Petter A now has a new trolley


I bought another pump to restore, approx a spritely 50 yrs old






Climax is now colour co ordinated and the engine will drive both pumps in tandem at the show






My 1952 A1 is now 100% perfect

101% since sourcing period decal






Still enough room to operate



Yesterday at Balne Moor






Perhaps getting a little tight, lots of shuffling around to achieve a way out

No compressors in here Howard just lots of wind  %%


Yes green does seem to dominate in various shades  O0  hence my venture into blue for the latest pump.


My display for Newby Hall in June is almost prepared. Thanks to the Climax pump I'm not the oldest part on display  {-)







I require 2.6 metres plus walk around space
