  1. Starting to go back together now, hoping to get it in the boat later this summer
  2. The flywheel is off, a bigger hammer sorted it! hopefully more to follow later today Tom
  3. last time we went up, the lock keeper asked what the draught was, we told him just over 3', we hit the cill hard, he didn't believe the tug was as deep as we said, his words were "so it is actually 3' draught then" then he ran more water through! a 28 ton boat hitting the cill and stopping dead probably didn't do the cill much good either. Tom
  4. I have a bigger hammer!
  5. Finally had some time to start looking at the crankcase and start to remove the flywheel. hoping to start on the gearbox soon,also sorted some new bits still in their packaging

  8. on a slightly different note, has anyone recently tried to get up the upper Trent towards Burton? it would make an interesting alternative to the bottom end of the T&M Tom
  9. Yes, I have welded quite a few old mainly Kelvin cylinders and heads. there is a mig wire available from America for cast iron but the cost is quite high. Tom

  11. At least you managed to get something out of them, I've been after an F block for nearly 2 years, they think they've got one somewhere.... Tom
  12. I am fitting a big petrol paraffin engine in place of a diesel, I suppose it could be seen as helping the environment! It is green too. Tom
  13. Some photos of the second cylinder block, thanks to Billh for donating this block Hopefully more to follow if I get any time to work on it! Tom
  14. this sounds like a very early engine, Do you have any photos? It may pre date WW, does it have a normal HT magneto? Tom
