just a quick up date. the engine is now running sweetly and i dont mind admitting that this has been the most expensive,and yet troublesome to get the timing correct. nevertheless lessons have been learnt and the experiance and confidence is growing.

That's great, good way to learn is to jump right in and try it, thanks for the up-date, weather is warming up over here and gardens are on the minds, looking farwards to more.

John, the finished product looks good. I hope you share some more with us! Do they judge the tractors at your rallies over there? Also did you ever figure out what the tie to the USA was with this machine?

doug T. yes to the judging of tracors,infact they judge every class which is entered . as reguards the usa connection to the goodwood i have asked around on a few occasions and the trail has gone cold. maybe someone will bring this subject back with a deffinate answer,and i hope that it does somewhere have a connection even if it was imported to yourselfs. many thanks for this and when i go for another project i will post it on here aswell.

hi i am back again with a new line of restoration,its not a tractor but a cyclinder lawnmower with a Clinton Gem engine. this was made in 1963 by ransomes. it has a 18 inch cut and was called a marquis. model no 2 A. not many where made and this model only ran for 2 years,so its kind of special.
