usually the plans are still too small but this time, no problem. just to find the engines now......

WAITING FOR THE SUN



few progress, the dynamo is shipped in UK, to be rebuild. i've received some waterproof connectors, drilled the point cover, bought the right oil too, SAE 50. i've started the engine with 20 w50 classic oil, cause in the book, they says this one or this one but it's very different. same prob with the gearbox, in fact modern oils are not good for the bronze bushes, still learning.in the same time i've received some cool stickers from NUNQUAM PERFECTUM , NETHERLANDS. thanks mate.

Beezer Shed Addict.........




Beezer is back in the shed. i've dismantled the dynamo to do other tests. now when i connect the dyn as a engine with a 6 v power supply , that's running, it seems the problem comes from the regulator. in the same time i've found a crack on the exhaust tube, located between 2 brackets, strange, repaired but strange. weather's not cool to work metal, i 've started the stove but now there's a f****** condensation everywhere, look at the crankcase.
