  1. It is sad how some people will sell things that are not fit for purpose :(
    Starting to the loose the will (again) especially with the weather changing too.

    Started to pull the compressor apart.

    This is a picture of the whole:

    Undid the bolts that hold the engine to the electric motor and it only moved 5 mm or so.

    So, took the end of the engine off (removed oil) and this is inside - very simple:

    A view through the gap betwixt engine and leccy motor:

    So - removed the fan shroud on the other side - when I move the fan by hand the pistons go up and down no issue - when I use the electric motor (holding the engine tight to the electric motor casing it runs well. If the engine moves just a fraction then all stops - so I need to stop the movement.


    Need to remove the engine, but a circlip is keeping the fan mounted to the shaft that runs all the way to the piston.

    Guess what I can’t find…… my circlip pliers. That will teach me to tidy up :(


    Working away for the next few days so will have a look for the pliers next week end.

    Found a few minutes today so tackled the tab that had come off the heat exchanger


    Welded on, ground down and then a dash of primer added.
