    I hadn't realized that these engines drive the cam via a gear and not a chain. Neto!

    Does anyone know Toby or Liesel personally? I'm a little bit worried that something might have happened - I gave Toby a call today to ask after him as I've noticed it's been quite some time since the last update. His number's been disconnected. From everything they were telling me when they bought the Dauphine off me they were super-excited to get it going again. They are the loveliest couple and it seems very at odds with their personalities to just suddenly go off the radar like this.

    I'd appreciate just knowing that they're ok if anyone knows how to reach them.

    I had the same concern - thanks for raising it! Fingers crossed eh?

    Well it looks like good news, I did a quick google search on their names after I got no reply on PM and from Toby's phone. Seems as if they've moved abroad, and loving life by the looks of their instagram. Not sure what this means for the little Dauphine but it sat idle for the almost decade I owned it, I guess it won't mind sitting for another! Certainly glad they're safe and well!!

    I think so - I've never used my instagram account in anger (or at all) but there's bound to be a private message option or something. Alternatively if you'd like to get in touch with them PM me and I'll send you their instagram user ID.
