Frustrating I know Gert. As  you say...sleep on it and I am certain you will figure it out. We've all been there at one time or another!

This morning I dissembled the engine and seeing nothing what could cause its inertia, I replaced the drillrod with the shaft.
A temporary flywheel was fitted and when I turned it everything came along smoothly.  :cartwheel:

Now I need to loctite the bearing into the column, drill the steampassage through an make a connection to the aircompressor.
Some time will also be spent with emery paper and cloth.
I hope I can show the engine running on air soon.

Although... I never uploaded a video before. Does someone know a tutorial for that?

All the best,

GertJan

Glad you got it sorted out Gert. Sometimes sleep can be an enlightening thing :). Does wonders for one's patience as well!!  As to videos, most post them to a hosting service like photobucket and then embed a link to the video in their post here.

That's happy news GertJan!

All I know about video posting is using Photobucket. In that case...it's just the same as picture.
Upload it, copy the img, and paste.

Others use youtube and provide a link.

for Christs sake !!

YOUTUBE was created to host VIDEO files

PHOTOBUCKET was created to host, you guessed it, PHOTOS.......


put videos on youtube and photos on photobucket
that way, videos will always work and photos will always display correctly

you may think im just a moaner but i dont give a  :censored:. Use the correct service for the file you want to share

other than all that
keep at it GertJan
everyone makes mistakes or cocks something up now and again
even the holier than thou ones that never admit to it

Not to take this off track...but...

From Wikipedia...

"Photobucket is an image hosting and video hosting website"
                                                        ^^^
I'm happy with it. One place to organize and control my goodies.

Yabbut...

PB has upgraded its user interface to nightmarish.  Looks like a bunch of crazed programmers, hyped on Mountain Dew and Twinkies, broke out of their enclosure and ran amok with their stubby, little fingers on their tablets or whatever the new, kewl I/O device is.

Youtube will never win an Emmy for its interface but it is usable.  It also has the advantage that the referenced video picture shows up with that little right arrow thing to inform you that it's a video and not a still.  PB doesn't do that and so, unless the author points it out, you can easily miss it. 

Oh, and PB takes forever to download, even on my high speed connection.

I hate to agree with anyone who has an avatar that ugly, but I have to side with ziggar on this one - PB for stills, Youtube for video.

And to top it off, PhotoBucket videos won't play on iPads or Android tablets.  But YouTube videos will. That's another big advantage for those of us who like to view on our mobile devices (which I think is quite a few members!).

So, if there's a PB hosted video, I have to remember to go back and check it when I'm at my desktop. And unfortunately, I often don't remember to do that :(.

Your right Kim and the only way to see it on IPAD is to reboot it every time I want to see a video. Pain in the $'bgkl.
