Video I took at the National, It is fairly long but I thought it was better than splitting it over several parts . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tm4VVgobMOo&t=174s

Great to see almost every engine driving an appliance.

Hi Nathan,

Many thanks for posting the video taken at the National Rally, great stuff. What a wide variety of makes and models on show, a credit to all of their owners

Here is the first run of my 1931 McDonald P type engine. It was acquired at the Bookham auction late October 2016. It is a very early type with "austerity" head (an attempt to save expensive bronze but not successful), and it has the early style McDonald made lubricator with twin plungers, before they adopted the Manzel tin box type. It came on its original McDonald transporter - very rare.
It needs a good run to clear all the excess oil from many start attempts! See it at: https://youtu.be/Xc3QSK_5W5k

A bit of chaff cutting action.

Didn't have much time to film as I was working fairly hard to get it all done. Was cutting old cornstalks and a bit of hay for a treat for the cattle.

Hello all
Some may remember way back in the beginning of 2017 where I was doing some work on a little Wolseley Alma for the local museum.
Well for one reason or another I had done didly squat to the poor old girl until about 2 months ago (don't ask why) when all hell broke loose on her repairs. I think she's now up to the stage where another coat of acrylic paint can be applied.
They were surprised at how she runs. They all thought she was a hit/miss engine.

Cheers Scott
