Only made it down there for the Saturday. Took Lindi for a run as the first event for some time.
What a terrific turn out. I?d like to congratulate all involved, people really went all out to put on a great show.
Lindi ran like a charm, there was lots to look at, and I caught up with a lot of people.
That?s what I?d call a great day.
Looking forward to the Downs Vintage Machinery Club trek now, in a few weeks. Good to be on the move again.

Cheers, Rx

Boy I would not want that spitting the rocks and grass out the back at me feet.
It looks like a cross between Victa and Villiers

Anyone with a Vinco engine or who collects mauals is welcome to a "How to Run the "VINCO" 3 page booklet which I acquired on the weekend.

Just send me your details and I will post it off. Free to right home.

Well said Rudy, yes it is always good to play catch up with others with the same interests. Looking forward to a Rally that we can attend down here one day.
All local show days have been cancelled around here but one and that is at Gloucester. Can only take the tractor or Dumpy to that one so will see what happens as it gets closer.

Made it there on Saturday.  What a great turnout even in these covid times. A great selection of engines and as usuall it was great to catch up with those we only see at rallies. That is what this hobby is all about. Regards Rudy

No the piston at top dear center the finish of the exhaust stroke

The exhaust valve about to close and the intake valve about to open this is where the rock should happen and tappets would just be touching

next 180 turn the inlet valve opens all but to end of stoke
next 180 turn compression stroke both valves closed
next 180 turn exhaust starts to open at bottom of stoke
next 180 piston at top as exhaust valve close and inlet opens

You only have check to this on number one piston
I think there is some confusion on what stoke I mentioned and you mentioned

Gday IAn. I'm not following the comment. If the tappets are not touching the valves and have the correct clearance are you saying that the valves are slightly open on #1? If so wouldn't that loose compression?
