    Hello again.

    Out of curiosity I loaded "Binatang" into a couple of Tok Pisin translators and both came back with "insect".

    Might stick with the Indonesian - sounds a bit more noble.

    Cheers,

    Neil

    I had to google it and came up with

    Tok Pisin (English /tɒk ˈpɪsɪn/; Tok Pisin [ˌtokpiˈsin]) is a creole language spoken throughout Papua New Guinea. It is an official language of Papua New Guinea and the most widely used language in that country.

    At least I have some clue what you are talking about now

    Pretty much, but I've also heard it used to mean both bacteria and malarial parasites. I think the meaning is actually pretty wide, and means any sort of wild nasty, but usually these would be insects. I assume that both the Bahasa and Tok Pisin use of the word comes from the Malay.

    It does too

    Actually this thread may have stopped before it started.
    I got the photos reduced and they are in my photo folder but when I use the attatchments to the forum then go to browse it cant find them.
    It cant get past the date that Windows 10 came on.
    I have spent too long mucking about with this, its driving me nuts. I would rather be outside doing some spannering.

    Try for a photo.
    Well I found one.
    Pulled the spring packs to bits, reset them with a sledge hammer over a log, greased them and reassembled.

    Well that worked, Just have to find the other photos.
    The computer has spent 4 days in the shop to get rid of 10 and back to 8.
    The format is different and I have lost all my email folders and contacts list.
    O well, could be worse.

    Tok Pisin words can have slightly different meanings in different regions.
    In New Ireland Binatang includes the Grasshopper which I related the name to.
    Smaller pests such as Mossies and sandflies are referred to as "Nat Nats"

    Possibly, rather than being a different word, is it possible that nat nat is a more specific word, where for example in English Insect and Mosquito could correctly refer to the same animal? (I do not claim to be any sort of expert in Tok Pisin, and have not really used it for 45 years!)

    This should be a shot of the chassis.
    Using that old trick of a pipe through the PTO holes as a rotisserie that makes painting and welding easier.
    I welded on a replacement rear crossmember and a few patches.

    I thought I was getting the hang of this, but although the pic is the right way up in the file it is not here.

    When I stripped the body off this chassis, it had an 80" hardtop that had a bit added at the back to fit the 88" It could be converted back if anyone is interested.
    See if this pic is the right way.

    That worked. So I have to rotate all my pics 90 deg to the right now to get them the right way on here.
