That looks like a bit of a thumb crusher :-[ hopefully with your regulator sorted it can be tamed  :)

It has quite a lot of eccentric movement but I guess that is due to the quite long valve that it has.

Double Snickers and  :wine1: all round tonight to celebrate :cartwheel:

Another fine runner Jo  :ThumbsUp:

I understand why you mention oil and the colour, as the later appears a bit 'delicate' to the eye  ;)

I do hope that Surus and you can make an agreement about the next in line, so to speak  :cheers:

Thanks Kim  :)

Things are looking up I have been allowed the CHUK 1 castings this morning  :cartwheel: . So I have transported them to the workshop before he changes his mind.
