They have been doing more restoration work on this engine and it
 now revolves freely using the motor and road wheel on the flywheel. They have also repaired one of the bearing caps that was broken. They glued it together with epoxy resin and then drilled two holes through it and inserted pins and profiled to shape to be almost invisible. At the moment they are continuing to restore the corn grinding Hirst to complete the restoration although it will be some time before and if they can run the engine on steam!!
