If you noticed it was posted by semidiesel (IF Paul Evans). He has one and it should be up an running soon, it came out of a pumping station near Tangye Dan.

Just had a look at some of the other vids from Jobergg who seems to originate frome somewhere in Scandiwegia - are we still legally allowed to have that much fun in the UK?

Tydd Gote to be exact, I was one of the silly sods who helped Paul along with Dan and Keith to move it through the building ready for collection to go to IF. I will add that Paul and Keith had spent the previous week stripping it ready to move, so Kim give it a few months and you will see the Flat Four running.

Thanks guys, I also had a note from Paul saying it is in his yard awaiting reassembly & that it will be running sometime next year. 35 tonnes it is .........

28 not 35.
In Another Place, there is a discussion about Vincent motor cycle exhaust pipes glowing in the dark but we have been capped by one of our number who tells us that
" ... if you'd have seen my pre-war sidecar outfit Velo MSS glowing orange from the cyl. head down to about the top 1/3 of the barrel, likewise exh. pipe, you might have been concerned. Most motorists were and flashed their lights, just as well because I couldn't see where we were going anyway, Miller you know, and me flat broke with large debts."
This brought to mind a tale (perhaps of some height!) about rotary engined aircraft landing at after a mission & one being able to clearly see the darker piston inside the glowing cylinder.
Worth sharing, I thought!
