  6. Great job there lads, I am glad you made the wise decision not make the earlier run and worked out the engine problem, she sounds good. John G
  7. 2 thoughts, you could be sucking air because of a bad fitting or cracked line. Also, check your coil and condenser. Both after mentioned items can be affected by heat if they are old. John G

  9. during dinner this evening, I will raise a glass and toast your gang! John G
  10. I have been following both of your build threads for years on this forum. I remember when you got excited when you view count on the Dennis build reached 500,000. With that said, your are FAST approaching 1,000,000 views on the Thornycraft build thread. Always fascinated with the molds you fabricate and the solutions you come up with trying to replicate original parts. I have no doubt you will be ready for Brighton! John G
  11. Steve, On our big trucks, Ward LaFrance Diamond T etc, we use a welting that is 1 1/2 to 2 inches wide depending on the width of the strap and 1/16 inch thick, sometimes 1/8 inch. regards John
  12. When you installed the gas tank, did you use a "anti squeak" welting between the straps and the tank. I did not see it in your pictures. If you did not, may I recommend that you do. Besides one less rattle noise it will keep the strap from rubbing into the tank. Jim Clark, the best there is, we use his canvas on all of our vehicles across the pond! Outstanding work as always John G
  13. I have to ask, how do cope with approximate 2% reduction in size when you have pieces cast. I had several brackets cast and I had to enlarge, ever so slightly, the hole where a piece of round stock had to got thru. For a pattern, the foundry used an original bracket as a core. John G
  14. I agree with Adam, it can be tricky job, you can bolt the pump to the block and miss the rod. What I found was to rotate the engine so that the rod is at its furthest point of travel. You then push the arm up against the rod as you tighten the pump down. John G
