x1 Jack + x2 Men = Doddle ;)

Bit-o-fettling to do. Typical weather forecast during, no doubt. I’ve been out there in the rain, snow, you name it. Man up...he thinks. No such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes!

...Anyway, getting close.

Got very good oil pressure up this morning, test light on oil pressure switch stayed on long after I’d stopped cranking. Got to adjust rockers now, in the snow!

Fired it up and it’s running!

Drove it in and out the garage. A real milestone. Very pleased.

Pat yourself on the back, excellent work and great perseverance, many would have shut the garage door and left it.
