Last few bits


For a while now locating the last few bits from the mights Bristol Hercules engine I need has been playing on my mind. A pair of washers snd circlips for either side of the piston. Not huge items but hugely important and a pain to have to make.

I needn’t have worried. A quick call to Patrick at Maddison 4×4 (who does beautiful restorations of aircraft engines) and very generously they arrived next day! Amazing how the universe works sometimes, thank you Patrick!

Last on the list is the castings, which will be ready for collection on Thursday. Can’t wait!

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!
