The engine is about 24 hp 3 cylinder. The battery will be replaced with a slightly smaller one with will leave a good 2 inch gap between the radiator and battery.

What size is this engine displacement wise?   The one I have is .9L and puts out right at 20hp.

Tonight's job was to repair the nose of the bonnet. I welded all the holes and ground down. Also I repaired the bottom edge where the hinge sits. I welded a piece of 3mm in to hopefully strength it up20160113_203732.jpg 20160113_200256.jpg 20160113_201943.jpg 20160113_194018.jpg 20160113_194028.jpg 20160113_193908.jpg 20160113_193858.jpg 20160113_191035.jpg 20160113_191049.jpg 20160113_191026.jpg 20160113_191022.jpg

Really cracking on there Simon.

I will drop off one of my Bolens for you to work your magic on! I got to go to Nantwich sometime!
