The Coleby is really starting to take shape now. There have been quite of few issues on the way including gearbox cracks, cab problems, broken engine governor, sometimes a less than understanding wife (although she is understanding most of the time).

One of the biggest problems I have had with the engine is getting it started without petrol. I can tug at the pull cord all I like without petrol and she just won’t fire! Three times I’ve tried this. They say you live and learn.

I managed to get down to Newark and bought a new WICO series A for spares. I should be able to get the other up and running soon.

Pictures will follow again soon when there is a bit of sun. I’ll hopefully be showing this again next year at a couple of shows but it does get expensive hiring a van for a weekend.

That’ll do for now I guess.
