Try a smear of Vaseline Jo.

It should temporarily seal it long enough for a short run.   ;)

Cheers Graham.

Thank you Graham and for the castings  :)

I still need to paint the flywheels red to match the original Flywheel and it is out of balance so the balance weight will also need to be fitted.

That's running very nicely and quiet too, bet you won't want to give it back, are you going to measure it up before it does?

Have you tried swapping the burner for the candle while it is going to see if that is enough to keep it ticking over?

Thanks for picking those up Colin, Dave's visit today was unplanned they should have been arriving in about three weeks time.

Surus was very pleased with his new castings, especially his Sphinx nameplates, one of which he has snaffled off to his casting store to make up for the fact that I have the Sphinx casting set out in the Workshop. The down side is he has been reminded about them  :facepalm:
