July 2018 – Bulkhead supports

Drawings for the bulkhead supports added to the Paterson Engineering job list. Removal of the engine cylinder head allowed the crankcase seals to be tested – they failed – confirming the need for a complete strip down and rebuild.

A strip down of the gearbox is started in the Shed, and suitable recycle hardwood (ex old brown furniture) is set aside for the bulkhead and flooring.

The project Gantt Chart is updated with latest progress and estimates.

The D&G Life article on Dalbeattie Shed and the Skeoch project (arising from Dr L. Jones’ April visit) is published under a banner picture of the Skeoch room.
