Martyn,

Nice looking 7J, do the neighbours know of your latest addition to the fleet yet?

Any news on the KJ or Miller's visit yet?

David

Great looking D4 Martyn. I had to do quite a lot of work on my D4 7J.....replacement sprockets, chains, front idlers......what's the running gear like on your old girl ?
Will I see you at Casterton on Sat or Sunday ? I gather David is planning a committee meeting......

Hello John
The running gear is good,around 85%,the engine runs very well.The mag needs a service and a couple of other jobs on it.I have been keeping an eye on this machine for six years.
Don't know about Casterton yet.Got a lot of things to do now the weather is dry.
Martyn
Bob
Its a rope start on the donkey.We had to pull start it because the mag has a weak spark and needs servicing.It was pulled a couple of yards and it burst into life.It had not been run for a few weeks.
I give it a good test run.Exhaust is clear and has the classic D4 sound.It will be an interesting load back ,Chaside, D4 and maybe 955K.
Note the MF ripper :dizzy:
