    Good morning.
    I’ve just joined the group this morning, and thought I’d say hello and introduce myself.
    My name is John, I’m a 57 year old mechanical engineer from West Yorkshire England.
    I have a ‘51 Ford F-1 Pickup (deluxe extra cab) with the original 239 cu Flathead V8 and 3-speed manual column change box & 6 - volt electrics, which spent time in Missouri before ending it’s US days in Colorado Springs before being imported by the previous owner (the guy I bought it from) in 2004 where it spent the next 7 years in Scotland, which I’ve owned since May 2012, and driven a fair bit with great pleasure...
    I’m currently finishing rebuilding the engine and am struggling a little with the valve gear, but I’ll cover that in a separate post.
    Motorcycle wise, I have a 1982 Honda 750cc V4 (VF750/V45 Sabre) and an original 1975 Harley Davidson FLH 1200 Shovelhead Electraglide.
    I look forward to providing a positive contribution wherever I can, and getting to know many other like-minded members.
    Kind regards to all.
    John.

    That’s a coincidence Charlie, we have a ‘35 Ford Pickup on the roof of our toilet block at work...!

    Sorry we don’t, the ones on our own aren’t great.....

    Kind regards.
