Limitations in the shop prevent running it on diesel for more than a few hits. Needs to have coolant running through the injector and can't effectively vent the exhaust thus the entire shop smells like following a bus for a month. I will get on with it when it warms up and I can do it outside.

Writing is of little interest to me sorry. I have to force myself to document what little I do to show you guys what I do to keep my fingers busy.

The quality and clarity of your instructional guides here have been invaluable to me, Butch. I think you are an outstanding technical teacher, and I'd guess that your son got a huge leg up in the world thanks to you.

I'd love to see an air start and switchover to oil on this beauty when weather permits.  This machine is an amazing piece of IC engine history, and the flameless gas/spark start option that it has makes it unique.

Hi Butch, and thank you again for your magnificent contribution to the LEF and my own understanding of all things mechanical.
Could you explain to me why you feel the need to drag you Ruston Hornsby outside to run it on diesel. Surely it would be easier to fit a suitable flexible exhaust system rather than carry 10 tons of iron out into the yard? Sorry to be pushey but I so wan`t to see it running on diesel.

Hi Butch

Around here, no news, it's bad news!

How things are going?
