Looks like a cam chain. What motor?

There’s an old WW2 airfield a mile up the road from me and every year they have a 1940s weekend in August. 
Popped up for a quick look just as they fired up the Merlin engine. The video doesn’t do the noise any justice. You can feel it through your whole body!

Today I took apart the wrecked car I brought back home yesterday. Daughter starts a new job soon and needs the car back ASAP. She has volunteered to cover the extra insurance premiums that her choice to follow to closely will give. IF they don't just drop us for it.

Made a trip to the salvage yard to grab the parts needed.  Got the stuff home and put it back together. There were no head lights on the cars in the salvage yard so we had to order new ones. once they get here the car will back on the road.

Wow, great work @Sinister!

 

Btw, what did you mean with "IF they don't just drop us for it". Do you mean the insurance in the US can drop you for one such incident?

Yes. One thing insurance companies don’t like is when you actually need them to psy out for things. Also our son had an accident last month.

That is taken care of by having it painted. This Green is a rare color. Although no one likes the bumper cover so a new one has been ordered.

Last year i started to practice bjj, a uncomfortable step for a 45 yr old man who never did any martial arts before. 

Once comfortable with the close physical contact it has proven a fun and good workout, with a great group of people.

This summer, feeling encouraged practicing with another club for five weeks on our vaccation, i signed up for a competition. 
 

So the last two months i have trying to prepare myself. Gave up on soda, candy, chips, cake.. all stuff i usually enjoy. Dropped down to 67 kg and worked on a gameplan.

Yesterday it was time to go. We were about 15 from our club who were to compete. Me and my primary practice partner was in the same group (white belt, age over 30, - 70 kg) along with four others.  
 

Once on the mat it turns out none of the others have shown up, same thing happens to my practice partner. So what happens is that me and my friend goes to the final against eachother. 
 

Such anticlimax. I signed up to test myself in a competition against an opponent. Not to go up against the guy who i have practiced my gameplan with for weeks, and someone I know is much better than me. 
 

I still mostly feel dissapointed about how it turned out, after building it up for so long. I did put my name on the list and myself on the mat. But i did not get the experience i was hoping for.

Sorry to hear that, @Lann. They sound as reliable as some GTA crews. Hopefully you'll get to put your gameplan into action soon. Signing up to bjj and sticking with it is badass! Going to actual compete, even more so!
