Hi Driscj - I noticed a problem - the lighthouse only does a single pass through, when the circuit around the entry hole is on, the current stays on, so it never turns off ,and stops after a single pass. Effectively this needs AC... it needs to be turning on and off constantly after each pass through

I Seemed to have fixed it - For anyone else having issues:
a)to turn it on there is a lever on the side of the hole to get to the top of the lighthouse (where the redstone is)
b)If it doesn't turn on at first, break the redstone by the lever, that will execute a single pass through
c)Whilst it's doing it's single pass, place a piece of redstone behind the second repeat of the set of 3 repeaters to the right on the circuit right in front of you.
The alteration should look like this now: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/109/77168285.jpg/

Note i have no idea how robust this fix it, all i know is on mine i have spinny lights and i intend to leave it that way - im not sure you could turn it on off easily, but it'll do for now.

Nevermind - this makes some of the timings slightly off, so on occasion one set of pistons goes up at the same time some go down, but i'm not good enough to fix that :P

But great build, but i will save my diamond until it is definitely working.

Fixed the timings now - works as intended :) If anyone is having trouble PM me - and i will explain. In short: you need to have 2 repeaters on that side i altered, which means sacrificing an on/off switch - but this can be effectively acheived by shorting one of the piston circuits to the middle circuit for a second then destroy the link, this will feed power in, which will then continue perpetually.
