as all of you will know when restoring these old girls generally you find that the coil or condenser has failed due to old age. so i have dismantled the back plate to give a clean up around all the affected areas

and of course,you guessed rightly     NO SPARK   have tested resistance of coil to 251 ohms . this is not enough you should have between 4000 to 5000 ohms so will purchase one shortly. so putting this problem on the back burner i then removed cylinder head and had a look at piston,rings and valves. the valves have around them a petrol stained finish,which makes me decide to dismantle them for further inspection.

i was right to remove as the inlet was okay but needed regrinding,and the exhaust valve seat was burnt.not what you want so i borrowed a valve seat cutter and by HAND NO DRILL INVOLVED slowley cut a new seat. then lapped both valves to a gas tight fit.and now when turning over by hand i can not get passed compresion stage without covering up the drive sprocket with a rag,so that i can get a more comfortable purchase on sprocket.

looking at the chassis and tin work after washing,i found inside the covers where there had been no sunlight that the original colour appears to be a cross between red and orange. a very similar shade to fords sunset red.i am going to get this colour analized by a machine just to put the right colour back on as i am  very keen on colour matching.   you might have noticed by other projects.!!

Because i am running out of shed space i have remembered to put up a paint line. it certinly keeps them well clear of the work space which is to say small.all large parts are dotted around my ankles and the bench is say 3 ft square. WONDER if there are any government grants for extentions to the work place ?

Talking of making progress ,today have recieved the paint for the chain guards and chassis etc.i am pushing the boat out so to speak on this one because of the small quantitys of these that have been discovered and registered. went to see my paint supplier and took the guards for a paint match on there high tech machine. NO EXPENSE SPARED and they came up with this colour,basically its an orangy red. i can not give you a name for it,but i have the formula which is displayed on the tin. see photo for this. if anyone is interested in ordering any please contact me and i will give you there contact details. "  have just noticed the date on the tins wrong "

A small update on rebuild. gear box now fitted and drive chain,but engine problems have been sourced to a worn out condenser.i knew it was going to well,but this is the nature of the beast.have ordered one today so we could hopefully get it sparking for this weekend.

Thanks you for the welcome.

Your progress is looking great. Good luck with getting the spark problem worked out.

I need to try brushing on paint. I have spray painted with rattle cans but am never satisfied with the finish. It definitely is motivational to see your work.

the best tip that i can give you on hand brushing is get the best PURE bristle inch and a half brush you can find.this i think is the secret to the final finish. thanks for your coments.

Thanks for the tip. Once the weather warms, hopefully I can brush on a little paint. I've got some metal asking for it.

  thanks paul,i forgot to put a small write up about the last entry. i still have not got a good coil as yet but i now think that i am making progress. the new condenser has arrived and is fitted,but until i get a spark all the tin work is lined up in order of reassembly,and strangly enough one piece,the chain guard fell off the assembly line while my back was turned and nearly killed old simar kid. must weigh at least 2 stone.a lucky escape if you ask me.

 engine refitted to chassis and also all drive chains in place. have found some new duck foot shares and atŁ 5.00 each its been costly also there is VAT to be added. a typical tight fisted yorkshire man. i just can not shake it off.
