Donington Motor Museum

Sadly, due to close its doors very soon, so I organised a group of Mogsters to visit… and about 15 Mogs plus friends turned out…it’s a superb place, and a great shame it is soon going to be no more.

Treeshekker

the process began today… washing, sorting, chopping, scratting, podging, pressing, pouring.
I was priviledged to have the first sip of the apple juice as it trickled from the press, and believe me, it tasted absolutely superb…
apples
chopped
scratted
podged
squashed
tasted
stored
and the pulp that left goes off to feed pigs
and this is one that got away

Great round of golf….

as usual, really…. 4 of us today, so Pete and Eddie played John and myself…nip and tuck all the way…I think we ended up even…not that we cared, it is a good sociable walk as far as we are concerned. Probably you, the reader, couldn’t give a monkeys either. Anyway, it was nice and sunny, so here is a nice pic of Pete on the 5th, about to play his second shot

and here he is, having just hit the ball….into a bunker!

It’s beginning to look like an engine…

at long last!
Now, with a reconditioned head, newly reamed valve guides, new valves that the seats have been recut, it is loosely together, until my Engine Guru Chris comes to double check my work!

It also has new piston rings, new main bearings and big end shells, new timing gear (chain and gears) and has had the injectors and injector pump reconditioned.
Hope I can get it all back together before the snows come!
