Default Rack and Pinion Down Under


I have spent the last couple of weeks putting the rack and pinion together after being dismantled for the trip from the UK.

This is number 4, the last of the ones we built and has never been rallied. Started it today, in 40 deg C heat. In England they would run for at least an hour with no cooling tank and barely get warm, today I ran it for less than 1/2 an hour before having to stop the engine. Luckily the shed roof was just high enough, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to run it with total fire ban in force across the state.

Hope to have it finished and running at Lake Goldsmith in May. I suspect it has been some time since one of these engines has run in Australia.
