I have been putting a few of Nigel's Holder parts through my E-tank, to show Nigel how well they can work..
The first batch didn't come out too well, but after a good clean of the anodes and swapping the power supply from a battery charger to a CB radio power pack great things have been happening.. Or should that be bubbling LOL

One Holder wheel arch..

In the E-tank it goes..

http://s212.photobucket.com/user/Stigian/media/Nigels%20Bits/Holder2_zpse6be6986.jpg.html">


After half hour.

http://s212.photobucket.com/user/Stigian/media/Nigels%20Bits/Holder3_zps8c999f7d.jpg.html">


24 hours later...

http://s212.photobucket.com/user/Stigian/media/Nigels%20Bits/Holder5_zps98cde3af.jpg.html">


And after two days stewing in the tank it looked like this when I pulled it out!

http://s212.photobucket.com/user/Stigian/media/Nigels%20Bits/Holder7_zps6fed8a50.jpg.html">


The paint just falls off under finger pressure!

http://s212.photobucket.com/user/Stigian/media/Nigels%20Bits/Holder8_zps86e0552b.jpg.html">


And after 2 minutes of scrubbing with a wire brush and some clean water, the Holders wheel arch looked like this.. 98% paint free and all the rust killed off and turned into black stuff..

http://s212.photobucket.com/user/Stigian/media/Nigels%20Bits/Holder9_zps7add8f58.jpg.html">

http://s212.photobucket.com/user/Stigian/media/Nigels%20Bits/Holder10_zps857bd9fe.jpg.html">


Once my CB power pack has had a little time to cool down over night, the next arch can go in tomorrow Thumbs%20Up

First of all Nigel,this project is giving me a new interest and I am following it when I can secondly would I be right thinking you have been inspired somewhat by our german member who owns all those fantastic machines he has produced for his walk behinds ? and thirdly the large alloy pan on the floor we used to have one of those for making homemade jam in,and have not seen one for years.

Not sure whats wrong. i think we will let it develop

Date Posted: 15 Sep 2013 at 4:56pm
are! the alloy pan comes in very handy on cold winter days in the workshop, it has many usesLOL yes i have been inspired by our german friend with all his add-ons my plan is to make an attachment that can do every thing eg, lift/plough/mow/chop/dig/tow/push/etc. it will be fitted wiv a ghetto blaster to play ska while it boils the kettle for my teaWink
lets see the showman top thatLOL

well my boy and i decided that today we would sort the brakes out that were sticking on and replace the seals behind the drums, big mistake! the drums just would not come off we tryed every thing including heat, so after four hours we took drastic action we drilled two holes in each drum then tapped a thread in each and inserted two 10mm bolts into these hoping by doing them up it would push the hub off but there was still no movement then we tryed a puller connected to these bolts hey presto 7 hours later i now have good brakes all round and no leaksThumbs%20Up

did a bit more today this is the front chassis rail it bolts to the engine and holds the front cowling /rad etc, it had in its time got very bent and had been welded many times so it could not be straitened so this is how i solved the problem
