Title: Mini Goodyear
Post by: greggles47 on January 08, 2020, 07:03:31 AM
My Mini Ol Blue is about ready for assembly. Needs a tank to complete, usually no problem but Ive decided that it should have a fast fill valve. Not that it'll ever race but there are correct ways to do things.

Time will tell if I can make a valve.....

It looks neat Greggles. They must be little beasties! Do you make or buy your fast fill valves? What ever happened eventually to your Roadrunner?

Thanks John, it's been a fun little build, for a basket case car engine that seems to go pretty well.

I intend to make the fast fill, using one of Robin Hiern's as a guide. I mangled one on the lathe yesterday, so try try again.

The Roadrunner is alive and well if resting in the shed. I took it out for a fly before Christmas, sadly the flaps had lost their alignment and outside maneuvers were simply scary.  So a bit more resting and it'll be time to get off the wall.

After a bit of rest and other activities the Ol Blue managed to assemble itself.

Fuel fast fill completed, but not tested. Tank still to be made.
