A good friend was willing to sell me this Stuart Engine 10V at a very good price and I`ve never worked on castings so this will be new to me!

I believe he purchased it with a machine or some equipment and has never touched it, however the original buyer sadly did!! An attempt has been made at machining the con rod and this is so off centre it will annoy me so I`ll need to make this again from bar stock.

Am I right in thinking that he has also drilled the lugs on the base box – I would imagine these would originally be supplied without holes ?? These are also not central but I`m guessing I`ll have to live with this

I have a few more nights work on one or two things in my workshop (primarly my final attempt at fixing my stirling before it goes on the top shelf (aka the bin) … but then work should commence!
