Hi there.
I don't normally post any thing on here but just wanted to say I have been watching gerrys progress for the last 2 years.
You have been a great inspiration to me and many others.
I can't wait to see him running. what a great journey you have made.
Many thanks you have kept me going when I thought about giving up on mine.
Hope to see him one day.
Ricky

Smoke coming from dizzy 8O


Pop the cap off and I'd cooked the points :(

FB ed the photo and asked why

Answer !...... I had the wires on the coil the wrong way around and cooked the points :roll:

I find the Ssvc FB very handy as I can get an answer very quickly :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Well I did say I'm learning at this engine stuff hehhehehe

So now wile I've screwed it all up I'm going to fit electric ignition ...... So I'll order that and wile I wait for it to turn up I'll connect the heater exchangers and do a few other thing....

So a school boy error slows the finishing stage ....... But that's life
