Nos - I bought the motors second hand, they're '03
Tim - Spot on mate, took the belt off and spun the compressor pulley by hand, lots of clanking
Just stripped it and found the big end bearing in a million pieces, half the skirt missing off the piston and the bore is scored to buggery! New compressor on order
Martin - Sat afternoon I went round south of Sark, through the Gouliot and across to Herm so may well have spotted me! I'm easier to spot in port, just look for the crowd of open mouthed frenchmen, it was nice at first but starting to get embarrassing! I'm just kidding of course, I've been amazed at the reaction and the comments I've received, made all the hard work worthwhile!
Keith - Don't worry I'm a long way from installing a bar I think, I got told off for not having cupholders the other day! But I have been in discussion recently with someone about a deactivated Browning .50cal, certainly will have a distinct profile with one of those mounted up the bow!
