Done it! First run on air

Post  MrStationHouse on Mon 18 Aug 2014, 11:24 pm

Brilliant, first run on air. It took me a while to iron out the leaks, notably/ through the starting valve, but once I had done that it went fairly easily just needing a hand on the flywheel to get it going.

There is a knock which can be heard, this is the LP eccentric strap/rod end hitting the water pump drive (water pump not yet fitted) and either needs the end of the rod trimming or the drive turning down a little.
