Na, not this time thanks, I've already got too many projects that need Time/effort/money.

However, I've love to see you stick your dick in the custard!

It was more of a challenge to see if Jonny was gonna flop his nob into the custard, I can't really justify it. But if you've got space, why not have a go....

Its a Rolls Royce Nimbus 105 710hp shaft speed 2240rpm @100%
Very thirsty for the power they make but a good easy engine to start and loads of fun to learn with.
I have a workshop manual if you buy it, you will also have to rig up a starting box.

GO FOR IT YOU WILL HAVE LOADS A FUN

Here's one running

He's right about the model & spec, and you were right about the chopper - westland wasp & scout.
And I was talking bollix about it being a gnome - the gnome is the T58 which is another engine suitable for marine conversion.
