    Thanks Bob.

    Yes there were plenty of Petters :D A few had real starting problems after the cold night on Friday ..... There was also a very odd one (or maybe my lack of experience) - photo number 10 which appeared to be a tank cooled model but using a hopper ... its was also spilling oil out of every gasket .....

    Nigel..
    Yes I noticed the hopper one its not origanal someone has done a quick mod, I should imagine it gets very hot with only the thin diameter of the outlet to circulate round.

    Regards
