Title: Silly idiot (get push rods in place)
Post by: TT John on 07.06. 2018 22:12
Well, here's me, telling you all how easy it is to get the push rods in place, using the comb bent in a fashion so that it held the rods in place but yesterday I attempted to fit the rocker box, not once but three times, I just could not figure it out but after a long pause and cup of tea I looked at the rods and realized that I had the long ones on the outside and short on the inside, silly billy, so I left it till this morning, fitted new solid copper head gasket, plus rocker box gasket, started about 8-30am and was completed by 11-00. So easy when you do it correctly from the start. *smile* *smile*

I'll be at Norfolk camp this weekend, lets hope it stays fine.

will sort the men from the boys.

I'm fully trained at the moment! Unfortunately I won't be at Norfolk camp.

The only silly idiot is the one that is not on the saddle of a BSA
