    The toolbox padlock key was missing so I carefully removed the lock in-case it can be repaired at a later date, I was amazed when I opened the lid & found a complete tool kit & spares all sealed up & as good as new condition. What a find.

    Just a thought, but if the padlock has a number stamped on it someone may even have a key to fit it. Certainly worth a look and if you post the number here if you find it I think there's a good chance of a result.

    Yes indeed Adrian, as far as I can tell this is a original WW2 tool kit as the last PU8 engine built was F24200 in 1945 (started in 1936ish) & this engines number is F13??? the other 2 engines are incomplete and have 1960s rebuild plates but this engine has never been unwrapped.
