  4. You could try Chris Morter, he does have spares from vehicles which he and dad John have broken. I couldn't get the linkage when I put the correct carb on my QL, had to make one.

  5. Busy day today getting a couple of spray top coats onto the frame, front axle, road springs and some of the frame brackets. I'm using War Paint's G3 Khaki Green at 15% sheen single pack air dry enamel it matches the original factory colour on the engine bay bulkhead very closely except that is dead flat, it's a nice paint to apply and will take up to 20% thinners for spraying without pigment separation, the paint is a Xylene base but I use a single pack cellulose thinners to speed up air drying when spraying. A few photos: A couple of the frame Front road springs and pintle spring Rear road springs and pintle cast brackets Front axle beam Pete
