Working Halftrack

Red Diamond first run 23-9-08
First short run of the Red diamond engine, it runs very smooth, we also made a movie. Because we didn't had a stable oil pressure we killed the engine. We found out that we had to refill the engine with more oil, because everything was spread around the engine, mostly oil filters etc. After this we had a stable oil pressure of 3 bar. Sadly we did this on another day because the oilcan was almost empty, but we still called it a successful day!

Bogies and Red Diamond 21-9-08
Worked further on the Bogie's and reinstalled the red diamond engine. Also the two teams had some good competition, The Priest team finally won at the end, because we finished earlier then the halftrack team (separate bogies versus install engine)

Work on Half track and Priest 20-9-08
Today we worked further on the Half track and Priest, also got some heavy roller from our Belgium's friends so that we could remove the last bogies wheels and take them apart.

September 16th 2008: work on Half track and some stacking
Worked further on the Half track m5, some progress photos. And some photo's of the parts that we had put in big baskets (it's like treasuring XD), Know we have to dig them out and get them prepped for sandblasting. The mechanical parts to get the Priest running are the first who get's out to the sandblaster!

Priest, Halftrack Progress
We decided to work in two teams, one team for finishing our Halftrack M5 International, its almost 80% finished but due to a engine failure, after completely being refreshed (better than fabrication specs!) our motivation left us.

We also worked again on our own Priest. We finished the armor plates for the one in Breda and started in finding back our parts and stack them, loads of work :O, cause everything is so darn heavy ;).

Halftrack the Beginning
Photo's of the Halftrack when we found it and the some restoration photo's. At the first test drive we had an engine failure, our deadline was an event. We just placed our Halftrack their as an static object.
