Due to finally having found someone to try to build-in the JCB-motor, (thanks in advance Lode) we managed to convince JCB-UK to donate us the needed surrounding equipment, because in 2014 we only received the motor block. Thanks to Chris of JCB power systems who helped us, we saw yesterday morning arriving two packages in Ypres. A small step for some, for us a giant leap. Thansk to everyone to make this possible (Stephen, Gareth, retired general, JCB-UK, Chris, Lode, Luc and I hope I did not forget someone ...)
More than half a year of no news, but once more this does not mean nothing is happening behind the screens, only nothing physically visible. But a while ago the new motor we were donated in the summer of 2014 was moved away from it's shelter in Poelkapelle to a new place thanks to Lode who will try, with help, to get it build-in our tankframe to be used as a reliable power source so we will be able to label it effectively Powered by JCB-UK. We wish to express our thankfullness to the owner of the garage, we were able to use for almost 2 years. THANKS dad (in law) !
