A bit of progress. :)

Set the tappets a bit lose. Compression is down a bit on one side. About 135/160. Squirting WD40 in the bore brings the compress up a little, so probably the bore/rings. However, engine has been stood along time, so watch this space.

Yesterday, I got the shed off the ramps and blocks. Drove it out and back in to barn.

Ta da :D

Yesterday, it rained, and then it rained some more!

Friday, I thought I would connect up and tidy some wiring. I really have little idea what connects to what in this bespoke harness! I removed all the dash and stereo etc to get a better view. :)

I think today (no rain), I will remove the steering wheel for better access. Also think I will write a list of items that need to work and separate out the different systems. I also have an ammeter and cable that could install. ;)

Wiring is done, but still some loom tape to apply. :)

My mate in the farm had mentioned he had run out logs in the house, so I loaded up the the Bedouin and half filled his fire place when he was at work. Bedouin hardly noticed they were there. :D

Avoid using electricians tape to wrap everything up. It goes horrible and if you need to get into the loom its just a big sticky mess.

I used small cable ties every 2-3".

Your right, that's why I bought proper loom tape. It so much better as well. :D

Started on the bonnet today. The gap at the front is where I removed a rotten piece of wood. I've cut some wood to size and will let the glue dry over night. I may end up shortening the bonnet a little to get a tidier edge. When done, I'll fix the bonnet to the wings and create a tipping front end. :)
