LOL on the way home I flicked it from LPG to Prtrol and i think it did 100k then.
boat is at a bit of a stand still at the moment, I cant spend any money (the wife and I are getting seperated) and untill that goes through and our money is devided I cant spend on toys. My weekends are taken up with doing bits on the house to get it ready for sale.

To keep my brother off my back i did a bit more today. Started off with a bit of 50X50X3mm box section and cut it up into rear engine mounts. The RH one will have a mount on the top for the throttle linkage, once i get a new manifold and the carb remounted, then i can work out the linkage and mount the servo in the box as well. I will also be cutting a bit more ali from them to make them lighter when everything is finalised.

Sounds like you're in the same situation I'm in. Getting ready to move myself and the NEW wife already knows that I'm building a 30' by 40' shop on the property complete with a car lift and spray booth. She agreed because being pregnant with our second, and getting tired of smelling the resins and paint fumes every day....and wants her garage back! lol

Hey Scott, Just use a cheap little bandsaw, and finish off with the belt/disc sander, or the die grinder with the sanding pad or the scoure pad or the small flapper wheel.
Hey Ross, yea I am going to run a earth wire.

Or better yet, simple metal cutting oil that you can get practically anywhere. Been using cutting along with a bi-metal blade on my belt saw for years. Makes for nice accurate cutting.
