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 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.
