so ... usual pilgrimage to Welland steam rally on Saturday :thumme: ... started to pee down, half way up the M50 on the way there :sad: .... but'd reached a tolerable wetness, by our arrival :vissla: ... told it'd lashed it down the previous night :sad: :sad: - we'd had sod all :smile:

IMHDO was a bit of a subdued event, compared to the usual 'carnival' atmosphere ... sadly. :sad:

Disappointing day TBH and was heading for the car, to catch up with the rest of 'em, to leave, when my eye was caught by a bit of kit i'd seen being dragged about earlier in the day, which'd looked at first glance like a big water pump ..... anyway :vissla:

Turned out on closer inspection, to be a water brake dynamometer :cool: and they were just hooking up a gert Traction engine to it :cool: :cool: ..... departure was delayed :skratta3:
not often you get the chance to see one of these beasts flat out, under full load :buga: .... so for your delectation :hurra: .....



takes a while to 'get going', but worth the wait :smile: ..... no idea on the eventual figures as it'd started to pee down and seemed to take 'em forever calculating the outputs :aaargh:
oh and watch the steam start to appear out of the brake's water reservoir tank :lmao: :uupps: :uupps:
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!! :uupps:

posty told me, when he saw the label that there's a guy in the sorting office who doesn't seem able to distinguish between his Aber,s (there're a lot round here LOL ..... it got so bad at one time, they had a van running between Abercarn, Aberbeeg, Abertillery, Abersychan and Abergavenny ... swapping deliveries around FFS !!
posty thought the guy'd been sacked .... seems he's back :
so much for paying for tracked next day mail --- another 4+ day delivery

been to Newport Weds morning, to St Joseph's hospital ... for Pam this time, for a change .... has a large mole type thing on the side of her face, by her ear, which she caught with a comb a few weeks back and has been giving her serious jip since .. GP referred her to a skin specialist ... appointment in several months, ..... so rang St Josephs and paid for a private consultation ... in less than two weeks ... gonna get sorted in the next couple of weeks, before the end of the month ... sorted .... and then shot back 'cos......

the bloody post office have done it again!!! .... text and email that morning saying - be in between 15.50 and 17.50 to take a delivery ....but ..... no show .. again
getting PO-ed with this caper ... .... if it's got an Abercarn label on it, when it eventually arrives, we will be having words

what is the point of paying for a service that just doesn't happen, when it could be got elsewhere

so whilst I'm waiting, the green stuff got a caning this afters ... should be good for a few more days .... nearly lost the countax into the drain sump in the shed pulling it out .... would appear the supports have succumbed to a spot of wet rot .... so after I'd finished i thought i'd better have a shufty, to see how bad it was .

'Course now't's ever simple .... the bloody mountfield was also sat on it ... and lo and behold it had a flat ... and i mean F L A T

So ... remove one back wheel after the air refused to stay in it .. tyre burgered ..... the two that came off the Dane were close enough, so one of them was gonna have to have it ...
wrestled the old one off

pity, cos it's not exactly slick ... might work with a tube ... only gets 15 PSI in 'em ... but no tube to hand, so wrestled the Dane's old one back on ... and stuck said wheel back on ... in the process of this i discovered an outer carrier bearing knackered in the trans-axle, so that's now sat by me bench awaiting attention, when I pick it up on there ...

but at least I could now get at the sump lid ..... once I'd supported the front wheel of the Wing

the sump is a collection point for four pipes and feeds the next chamber down the line, which also collects another four together as well

that too could do with a 'refresher' on a couple of the lid timbers

in fairness .... the one in the shed was out in the elements for six years and the other one's been out in all weathers, going on nine years ... not done too bad ... time for some repairs ...... and some new boots for the lil' traccy .... after i've sussed the trans axle issue
It's very handy with a trailer behind it, 'round the place and beats walking with a pile of gear

was surprised how little silt had accumulated in the shed sump .... again nine years old and gets a lot of water down it cleaned it out after tea ... and is now ready for attention.

So first job in the morning is lift the Mountfield onto the bench, lift Delbouy 's plastic pig chassis out of me trailer and go get some 50 x 50 x 6 angle for some new (and more permanent) supports for the sump lid and get them installed after a good coat of bituminous, then rip the trans axle off the little un and strip it to see what's required in the way of a new bearing.

there's always summat to keep me occupied ..... and that's just the tip of the proverbial ice berg

T'was time for bed .... I was knackered ..... this tyre changing mallarchy's hard work




well the day didn't go quite as planned .... me mate Pete wasn't there Friday, so the angle iron'd have to wait for another day .... replaced the bearers with some CLS ... after it'd had a liberal coating of bituminous ... then had to remake the deck cover as the bearers tying the boards together wasn't looking the best ..... can't believe how long all that took

couple of inches of that was gonna get the treatment tomorrow .... with the Ajax .. bore it out to 18.5 and cleaned up a 3/4" reamer this evening, for the finishing touch .... going to make it 2" long and replace that damaged bush with it as a one piece .... it may even have been that way originally

's gotta be better than it is ATM .. and doesn't get a lot of use, or do any real speed ..... might introduce a grease nipple into the carrier though .. 's gotta help

now to search ebay for some brake pads for it .... what's in there are 'beyond tolerance' IMHDO ...

Keep forgetting to say ..... there're always lots more pix available than I put up ... for anyone wanting more piccy porn ... I still load all my stuff on 'Bucket ... for anyone interested ..... https://s1275.photobucket.com/user/v8druid/library?sort=3&page=1 ....

Llanthony & district show on Saturday .... ALL traffic has to go past Ken's place and there's a nicely positioned telegraph pole at the bottom of his drive ..... this was getting nailed to it tomorrow .... 'bout 12 ft in the air

after weeeeeeks of form filling and collating info. we are just about ready to submit all the IHT paperwork for probate ... the printer is still cooling down .. what a bloody job

so if any of you might wanna buy it
It's one of the last traditional Welsh long houses left in the valley, untouched ...LLanthony valley is a bit of a time warp .. there are no 'new builds' and never likely to be ... what's here is it .. and now't stays on the market long

and several outbuildings. The potential is immense ... were I twenty years younger, I'd have already bought it

another £120k gets you a further 15 acres of pasture and woodland, the other side of the road, with/including the river along its lower boundary

Bild
Originalets URL: https://i1275.photobucket.com/albums/y450/v8druid/scans%202/Coed/bot%20fields_zpsjgpiaocp.jpg

it's a stunningly pretty parcel ... and if it doesn't sell for at least the asking, I WILL be buying it.

so £720k gets you the whole caboodle.
as always, it's "location, location, location" .... places up the valley just DO NOT come up

for anyone interested ... there are a load of images here ..... https://s1275.photobucket.com/user/v8druid/library?sort=3&page=1

wants/needs a lot of work, but'd be worth a serious bundle, done

most places up the valley go to 'incomers' ... the most recent 'incomer' has spent a couple of million so far .... but it's gonna be amazing, when he's finished it ...
Monty Don lives a couple of miles further up the valley - bought Pam's son in law's grand-dad's place .... and poured many at it

and a couple of miles down the valley is the Landmark Trust's latest project, just completed - was on the box a few weeks ago.

Llwyn Celyn ... https://www.landmarktrust.org.uk/search-and-book/properties/llwyn-celyn-property-51563#Overview ....
they should have been shot for lowering the floors a foot - ruined the place ........... wouldn't surprise me if they had a sniff about TBH . Ken's is circa early 1600,s
not surprisingly its grade two listed

so my day'd been completely shot ... again .... by the time we got back ... had some nibbles for a late lunch .... I stripped and cleaned Ken and Doug's Dyson, which kept shutting down and overheating, when Pam was trying to use it last week up there, clearing up ... never seen such a blocked Dyson .... sucking bloody well now though .... my lil' projects got left

Did manage to haul out a machine vice from its hiding place in a box after tea, gave that a strip and clean ...

gut muscles were complaining that night though ..... 'twas bloody heavier than I remember it being .. or i'm just getting old(er)

was gonna see if I can get that bush made for the Mountfield, in the morning ... and get it back together

so was time for bed - yet again ..... Sparts had me up at 04.00 the previous night .... howling down stairs .... thought he was hurt, the noise he was making, but nope ... he just wanted a cuddle ... poor lil bugger is losing/has lost the plot ..

forgot to say earlier in that original post .... the house has a huge stone barn attached to it ... bigger than the house with massive potential to extend it into the house ... all one building - hence Welsh long house ... the animals provided heat for the house .. with the barn incorporated it'd be a hell of a house .... there is a door into it upstairs in the house - sealed up as the upper floor in the barn has long since been removed, but a huge fireplace still exists in the end wall at the first floor level ..... If only I were forty again

would've put it all back together, but waiting for some brake pads for it ... what's in the caliper is way beyond serviceable ... and explains the shortage of brakes, last time I used it .. much easier to do on the bench than grovelling under the back frame. It'll wait, 'til they arrive

got eight sat and needed another eight for all the various things that need boss-ing up

need to find me a bigger 3 jaw chuck .... as per usual - used to have a couple of suitable candidates ... which went in the workshop clear out .... couldn't keep it all -- wasn't allowed
can bore them out to the required 70.2 mm then
need summat that'll take a 100 mm comfortably .... 'least they'm sat with t'others now, ready

Genny has been good to me ...

all displays as they should be and did a vid for people's acoustic delight .. to show just how quiet a 'silent-pak' can be



genny behaved all day with one exception .... kick off !!!! ... did not wanna play ... so ..... earths off the starter - post filed back to bare, shiny stuff, as were the copper terminals and all dogged up ... went first flick and behaved for the rest of the day ... must remember to vaseline it all .... keep the old verdigris at bay, 'til next time ..... and beyond


and today ..... yet more paperwork for HMRC .. IHT forms - again and prepping sales blurb ...
sod giving an agent 2% for sweet **** all ...
we'd have to supply it all anyway ...
managed to sell me workshop site without their help to a 'national' .... think we can manage this one too .....

the Turpins in the bank wanted 2.5% of the entire estate to do the Probate paperwork -- for which we would have to supply ALL the info. anyway.
might make this a bit of a side line .... not rocket science
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!! :uupps:

OK Guys ...... usual story ... big catch up starting roughly where i left off :vissla: .... so 8th Aug......

been a looong day at Ken's today, clearing scrap ... again. Plus 80 years accumulation of tish :uupps:

got this lot in the post to HMRC and Probate office yesterday afternoon :thummar: ...... lot of work gone into that lot :vissla: ... well worth the damn near nine quid for registered post to make sure it gets there


Bild

Was some bit wet here last night ... if the buckets, etc. are to be believed, must've been 50+mm of the wet stuff ...... with more forecast, 'til late tomorrow

six month MOT day today (9th) in The Heath in Cardiff .... proper lashing down here when I left .... Blue skies in Cardiff.

Got called in, hour and a half early, 'cos they had a cancellation .... shot down there........and was still waiting to be seen at my original appointment time of quarter to three :huh:
New specialist nurse in my consultant's clinic..remembered me from my visits to The Royal Free, in Hampstead, London, in 2011 .... said "you're the chap who Professor Mehta examined, with 30 students gathered round, with the three plus kilo spleen :vissla: .. you were a rarity "

Amazingly small world

Took a mauling that day .... from some very pretty student doctors ....... an' that was just the blokes :skratta3: :skratta3:

they got a new treatment if I want to try it ..... tablets :hurra: ... apparently seems OK so far, with them that's given it a go ... will have a ponder ... be a damned sight more convenient than getting stabbed by Pam once a week ..... and doesn't need to be kept refrigerated, so very mobile :cool: ....... as usual there're side effects, so need to have a good read, as I do pretty well on what I'm on ATM ... but could always go back to it if I can't handle it -- or it doesn't like me Hmmmmm? :vissla:

got the little Mountfield back together one evening this week ... :grin:

just in time to get rained on ... been a so so week here for weather :sad:

day up at Ken's Thursday, sorting scrap/rubbish/etc. and 'dealing' with this, after it'd been emptied ....

me on the rivet heads out side with a sharp cold chisel/hammer and the two BILs giving it some inside ... rolled up a treat :thumme: .. there wasn't a barn above it when it went in there ... and beyond moving (in one piece) anyway ... even if we could've gotten at it. :vissla:

not seen so much of Clara these last couple of weeks ... school holidays, so mummy is about, but she's not lost her fascination with rock ...

pity the wasps had beaten us to it on a lot of 'em :aaargh: .... never seen 'em eat whole apples from the inside out :???: ..... just leaving the skins hanging on the trees :sad:

having got well pee-ed off with grating 'em all last year she thought she'd try chopping 'em up .... I squashed em as hard as i dared, for fear of breaking her press, ........ and got sod all, not even a trickle ... so they came back out for a grating LOL :lmao: .... and hey presto ... a good litre and a half out the first batch, so far. Give it a turn every time I go near it, but reckon it's about done .... next load for grating time :vissla:

been waiting for some new fuel line and a tap/filter for the Mountfield ... it has a habit of dropping it's fuel tankful, when parked ... float needle obviously can't cope with the head of fuel in the tank .... it turned up Friday so had a sesh sorting that and then, as per usual, when it ain't been used for any length of time, it was flywheel off time .... bloody spiders like occupying the points dept. and it rarely goes without a sort out.

anyway ... got in there and the casing's full of what can only be condensation ... no way for rain to get in there .

Got most of it out, but had to lift the points out to get it all ..... and discovered ...

an acute shortage of connections from the coils to the points, which was not going to be helpful to the cause .. God knows where the missing inch plus had gone ??

so out came my trusty Weller :thumme: ..... this is 50 years old :uupps: :uupps: .... had it for my 12th birthday ... (was into 'electronics', as it was known then)

and gap-ed the points (anyone old enough to remember what they are?) :grin: dropped the flywheel back on, keyed it up and dogged it down for a try for a spark .. YAY!! first spin up ... :thummar:
stuck it all back together, litre of motion lotion in't tank and it went first flick :hurra: .... which is pretty miraculous for a Briggs an' Scrap 'em :skratta3: .... no idea how old this little Mountfield is, but it must be catching the Weller up pretty quick ... I'd say it's early 70's if not older !!

Anyway ... let it warm up, gave it a bit of a tune and it sat on the bench happily ticking over ..... put, put, put, put .... was going to get it down off there in the morning .. 'til Pam reminded me, I got to go back to The Heath first thing, for some more blood tests ..... has to be early as they're flying them to Switzerland as soon as they get 'em packed .... did offer to go over and they could have 'em 'fresh out the arm', if they'd like, but the answer was NO!

Some 'real specialist' lab out there's gonna analyze my metabolic rate from 'em to decide whether I can try their new treatment regime ... Eliglustat TABLETS !! :hurra:
.... cross yer fingers

shot down there this morning .... they extracted 10cc of red gold ....and I flew back ..... 90 mile round trip ...... and wait several weeks apparently, to see if I can try the new drug . Traffic on the way down was great :thumme: ... and made it in 50 min.s ..... 90 on the way back ... I bloody hate Cardiff traffic !!!! :sad:

Might get summat done for myself tomorrow :vissla: :grin: :thummar:
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!! :uupps:

catch up time again guys .......

hauled this out of the middle box friday evening ..... bit of a story attached to this ..... more anon :vissla:

Bild

and relocated it to some freshly created space in't mower shed, for now ......

Bild

I wanted to get me remaining three sliding racks out the box to finish 'em off and fit the decks to them, so's I can use them and create some more floor space in the one, by getting stuff up off the floor ....

Petter AV 2 IIRC ... some of me small engine 'collection' ...

Bild

AV1

Bild

and an old Villiers I have had sat for a serious number of years ... have quite a few smaller stationary Villiers motors, :smile:

Bild

including a not so small single diesel D270 ... quite a rare animal by all accounts .... like this one


so .... got them out and up on a slider ....

Bild

after I'd gotten the three out to finish off ....
Number one on't bench ...

Bild

and all the deck support lips installed ..... shot that one back in out the way on't forks ... and grabbed the next one ...

Bild

had taken a good few hours to get that lot sorted .... and some serious humping .... :uupps:
some of it had been tucked into corners and took some juggling out on me own !! Those 'little motors ain't so little when yer's wrestling the damned things ' .....
the two Z1000 engines beat me ... they'll have to stay put for now :sad:

Was just about dark ... at 8.30 that evening, when I'd finished the second one and it stayed put for tonight ..
Load number one tomorrow with a few other bits and bobs I want up out the way .... after I've cut the deck for it and dropped it in ...
Sunday or not ..... they'm in for a noisy day tomorrow .....
between sawing the boards to size and lifting it all in/out/in ..
it's all gonna need forks ...
might have to put the VA-r on too .... can't get square on and it's been a faff at an angle today ...
can load the decks on the floor then and just lift 'em in complete onto the tracks .. as it's intended to be used

25C in the shade at 11Sunday morning ..... opened up the tool box and 39.8C in there after the sun'd been on it since sun up :eek: :eek: ... like a bloody sauna in there :vissla:

looked everywhere for Sparty that night, after I'd shifted said go kart and locked up. Was about to start opening everything up again, when I spotted him sat on one of the stone pallets ...

Bild

totally engrossed .... he'd ignored me calling him ...


Bild

touched him and he turned and gave me a 'sod off' look ..." I'm mousing " LOL :skratta3: ......... sat there an hour or more
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!! :uupps:
