It wouldn't be a Lucas NIL with clockwise rotation by any chance Ian?

Hi All,

Had some time and decided to work on the farm pumper.

The gibb key came out fairly easy. The crank is damaged from lack of grease but with another front housing and a good bearing pressed into place there is very little movement. The crank is stamped with the same engine number so I was hoping to save it without major expense.

Still need another magneto as the one fitted is not correct and even though it is running it is a poor fit held on with one bolt. I am working on the crank case door.

It's a bit smoky as I was running the oiler a bit quick. Needs a little bit more tinkering but at least it is running again.
