She's alive, a 3HW starts for the first time since 1947

Recommended Posts

SHE'S ALIVE!!

Thanks to the splendid efforts of fellow 3HW owner and good friend Peter Brown, my 1945 Triumph 3HW ran today for the first time since I bought it in 1985, and probably for the first time since 1947, when it was put in an East Cowes shed.  Several attempts to get it going had been made at the Havenstreet Steam Railway 40's show, without success, which was hardly surprising as it would appear I put the timing gears back 90 degrees out when I fettled the engine twenty plus years ago (I was still learning).  I am delighted that Peter's efforts have been rewarded, so a photo of his moment of triumph  with my Triumph.
