The Saxonette in the Shopper now runs well, needed the float cleaned as it weighed to much with accretions on it. I see how it works now. The valve is in the lid. Should be possible to use paste to lap these together into a fluid proof seating as it is all accessible. Even make a small bow spinner to make it easier, like lighting Ray Mears.

The Shopper changed beautifully into second as it left under its own power to go to the local show, piloted by Andrew. I will see him again at 5 pm with reports.
