    Another delivery today: a new old stock Alpha main bearing, that is not rust just dried on grease/corrosion inhibitor. Think a bargain again, new ones are £240, got it for under £100 on ebay. The original one is a little gritty so will have a look at it.

    Hoping to get back to this soon, picked up a spare decoke set, New very Old Stock: was originally 5 shillings then written over at 65p. Inflation!

    I can remember selling old stock of those in the 70s. Good gaskets in my experience.
