Nice work!  And for just a few dollar's worth of common hardware too.

Richard, so glad you are a few steps ahead of me with the DA restoration, THANKS!!

Love the duct tape, you have obviously learned from the Red Green Show.

That's brilliant!  You are a natural at improvisation.  Where there's a will there's a way.

I'm not running at the moment.  A visit to the hospital and a battery of tests have put me out of commission for the time being.  Hoping to get my energy back and get out in the shop in the next day or two.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.  My stress test revealed no problems with clogged arteries or my heart muscle, so I may last a few more years.  I was out in the garage today working on my BB1 carb - which I rebuilt last year and discovered it had frozen up sitting on the shelf for twelve months.  Some disassembly and a bit of lube and she's ready to go again.

Hey Ron, we are having a taste of your dry weather with a drought on the cards.  Parts of the river Derwent in Cumbria (usually one of the wettest parts in England) have dried up completely. Spring Barley is withering because the rains that we are reliant on have failed.  It seems to be either feast or famine these days.  I hope you are getting whatever treatment you need to get  over your difficulties.  I wish you well.

 

Ray.

Well I know where all your rain is, Ray. Here! We are well past half our average annual rainfall already. We had 538 mm in March and just under 500 mm in April. Wet wet wet.

 

I wish you well with your health, Ron. It is no fun when it deserts one.

That was a bit of bad luck. We have had a few well publicised cases of Legionaires disease resulting from working with compost. Some have died. All the best. These problems make us realise the fragility of life and we treasure it all the more.
