Default About Time for an Engine Video

Hello all
I've noticed of late there has not been much in the way of pictures or video's of our pride and joys. It's been blah, blah, blah.
So here is one of our latest little projects. We wanted a little engine setup so we could travel to a few rallies. Van on the back, engine in the back sort of thing. The whole setup easily goes in the back of the old Pajero with room left over for another little engine and something for it to drive.
Anyways, here's our little Barlow and Triton. I've just had it at a rally where it ran for 2 days with virtually no problems. A valve got a bit sticky and some oil blew out the breather into the magneto points were the only problems. A squirt of oil here and a squirt of degreaser there and problems sorted. The oil blowing out the breather was entirely my fault. I didn't leave the oil level plug out long enough when I topped the oil up at the beginning of the second day. Stupid me.

Please feel free to add pictures or video's of your...well, any old stuff. No need to be an old engine per-say. Let everyone know why your in this hobby.
Cheers Scott

Thought I might try my hand at a couple of videos.

This is my McDonald ML 65-70HP hot bowl semi-diesel running for the first time in a number of years. Despite a metre of concrete in the base, the whole thing shakes badly at higher revs. Original muffler (a WW2 sea mine casing).

Another McDonald semi-diesel, this time a 40HP model TL being given its first run after having replaced its piston and conrod after finding the original flogged out.

I finally had some time last weekend to give my little Austral a run. I have owned this engine since I was a teenager (a long time ago). It is a very well worn engine but runs well. After a crazy week, it is relaxing to give something in the garage a run.

I picked up this Buzacott Farm Pump with the Fuller Johnson. The Buzacott had fallen onto it's nose at some time and bent the crank. I also found (after purchase ) that it was seized as well. Another crank and freeing he stuck piston and away it went. This one also has a bark out the exhaust. Just working out a windmill pump so it could be displayed doing its job.
