Thought i'd share a few photos with you.

Tested the winch on the trailer today.. went on very smoothly so pleased with that.

excuse the fuzzy images, they were taken on a phone camera.

Looking good.

It looks quite comfy there on its trailer. I am still borrowing a trailer when I take it to shows.
I am looking in to a custom design being space framed and where the trailer can be taken apart when not used and stacked in the corner out of the way.

When the engine is put on the trailer the front hitch point locks into a hard point on the trailer and then a swivel "A" frame comes up to the back tow hitch. Means I do not need ratchet straps etc which can come loose. The wheels will sit in to shaped wells to make placement easy.

That sounds very expensive. My trailer lives outside under a tarp when it's not in use. I bought it of another engineman who no lo gee needed it. It's very sturdy with plenty of room for the bowser and trailers to fit on too.

Hey Nick, how does it feel to have an engine on it's wheels? Wink looking good now.

You may only have room for a 2" bowser and trailer unless your going to make it a double decker.
