Hi there.

I came about this forum as a result of trying find some details about a JAP engine I have, so I thought I aught to introduce myself first.

As a former forester (a long, long time ago), lifelong biker and mechanic, specializing in small plant and horticultural machines, I have dealt with most kinds of engines and transmissions, going back to the 1940s and beyond. I have also restored classic cars and bikes and owned narrow boat, and the odd stationary engine.

I am not heavily into the details or intricacies of vintage garden machinery, but have worked on a fair bit of it, as some of it was still in regular use when I started wielding spanners, over fourty years ago.

I am now based in Milton Keynes, Bucks. and am semi-retired due to a knackered back. I keep myself busy with my small collection of classic bikes, and buy and sell motorbikes as a side-line.
