Nuts to you sir!


I have in my hand, a very nice Bristol Hercules cylinder nut. Courtesy of Patrick Smart who has a pair of restored Hercules engines he runs up at charity events. I can get this to my friend Nick who recons he can make a spanner on his 3D machine. Thanks Patrick!

Patrick’s mate Pete was kind enough to weigh a piston, rings and gudgeon pin they have and send me the details. I needed these for Bob so he can work out the balance factors.

Two important pieces of the puzzle coming together, thanks very much guys.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
