    MK3 Covenanter restoration

    Nothing new to report, the restoration is on hold until I get the time to do it. Although I am still acquiring the odd part and the engine is still with the specialist in leeds but like me he is busy until autumn. I got some spare parts from new Zealand a while ago and will put up some pics once I go through them

    MK3 Covenanter restoration

    no plans yet, i was hoping to do a dig with the history channel but they didn't fancy trying to get permission to put a hole in lincolnshires flood defences

    MK3 Covenanter restoration

    we haven't done any work on the tank for quite a while but this doesn't mean we have been idle. the engine was removed and has been with the engine specialist for assessment as to whether it would be viable to restore it to running condition and it looks like we got lucky, although it will require a rebore and new rings we should be able to use the original pistons. the bottom end hasn't been checked over yet but visually it too looked to be very good. we're a long way off from running it but things are looking good so far

    i'll be interested to see how you get on with the wheels, polyurethane rubber is something i've considered doing on tank wheels. hope it goes well
