    Have just ended the auction early as I went to start the craft and it wouldn't start. It was running fine a few weeks ago when last ran.

    I checked the obvious, spark, fuel. I stripped carb & cleaned, still would not start. I then removed the flywheel to check the woodruff key hadn't sheared. All OK in there. I cleaned the magnets & refitted flywheel. Still would not start .

    By now I was getting well tired from all that rope pulling

    Started to scratch my head "now you know why I have a bald patch . Basically it had to be compression, maybe a ring or head gasket or engine crank seal. Checked the compression by sticking my finger in the plug hole, nearest the flywheel plenty of compression . Fan side piston sod all compression . So now I have to remove the engine & strip it down to find out what has gone wrong. My guess would be a ring has either stuck or broke, will find out tomorrow.

    I'm glad that it has happened now rather than in a few days time to the new owner.

    I have decided to try & sell the craft with the engine needing repairs. If it don't sell then I shall rebuild the engine and race the craft.
