  1. Rolls Royce Merlin Aero Engine for Auction

    The word is 'possible' it's far from easy, apart from all the obvious ancillary needs, fuel, coolant tanks etc it can't be run without a propellor or large 'flywheel' Running one of these is not for the faint hearted! But great fun and very rewarding. Jules

  4. War and peace 2017 ?

    I enjoyed the week at the Hop Farm this year despite the weather, it was good to be back a little closer to home. I particularly liked the Gentlemans lounge and I thought the showers were very good especially the portable ones. Only criticism as others was lack of toilets. The Humber drove there and back faultlessly so that's always a bonus. Jules

  12. Fuel Tank Sealing Compounds

    Hi Larry i have recently used the Pur 15 from Frosts on my two Morris PU tanks and so far it has been very good, certainly holds fuel ok, its a bit of a long winded process, but needs to be done properly. bought two sets as there are 2x11 gallon tanks and had a fair bit left over, sadly this can not be used as it has a very short shelf life. so all good from my view. Jules
