Rolling chassis just about done, engine will be done when we get back from Norfolk next week.

With time and weather not on my side I have decided to take the second 85 and the 66 with mower to Newark in their working clothes, gives a good contrast...

Rolling chassis done... engine cover just resting on the frame so as not to scratch the paint...



The engine from the 88 to be tackled next week.

Paul your fame as a landmaster collector has reached n. yorks,in fact my home town. i was walking down my street and a man called me  over to his garden. whats up i said when i got to him ? are you going to newark he said. yes i would not miss this one i replied.he then said that a friend of his and himself where going to see the landmaster collection which is a special event this year. i pretended not to be aware of what he had said and then asked him to tell me more. his friend had been watching your restos as a none member and had spoken about what you where doing and he had to come to the show basically to see these.  so there you are . good job they do not know simar kid  Clap LOL

This advert arrived from Australia today, interesting to see how the AUS version of the Gardenmaster 80 wore very different decals...

Just the engine and associated cowlings, then once done its to be bolted back into the 88 rolling chassis.

Then the second 85 and the 66 will get a degrease and then we are done !!

Thats so true Gareth, thats why the second 85 and the 66 are going in their "as bought" condition, I won't have time between now and the show to do them justice...

Bit more done this evening, petrol tank just about done just needs a small amount of touching up (under the cap) and the decals put on...

The engine is now on the bench ready for a fettle, starting with a nice coat of black on the exhaust pot and pipe...

Looking good, hope you do  better with the Asperas than i seem to, whenever I have one they give me a lot of trouble in getting them to run right, infact the one on my 220 sometimes even now sometimes just refuses to start, yet other times goes well.Looks like youre going to have another prize winning display with these machines.

Bit more done tonight, small engine cover cleaned and primed and the top of the engine cleaned up and given a dose of heat resistant black - note the old spark plug I put in, it seemed the easiest way to mask the spark plug hole !!

Think that Landmaster themselves may have originated the fashion for colour coded plugs! My unrestored  66  bought new in the early 70s and still a working tool  has a white engine and the remains of white paint on the plug!
