    Unknown early chassis

    Has this been around before? My bad!
  2. Nothing to do with me whatsoever. I reckon this is a bit rich to buy just for the chassis, but someone may know what it is/was! Just scroll through the pictures then you will see what I mean. May not even be wartime but post war https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Railway-Carriage-old-converted-accommodation/202047206384?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

    I expect you have done a bit of google searching but what about here as a starter for ten? There is a nice regimental plaque on the 5th row down, similar to this? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=THE+LOVAT+SCOUTS+painted+insignia&rlz=1C1GGRV_enGB751GB751&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiq6_D3xNHcAhXrDMAKHSyYCHAQsAR6BAgBEAE&biw=1256&bih=671#imgrc=4upnGp2wC1USFM:

    WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    Not too sure if you can do this method with copper but old school Sparkies used to bend steel conduit using a length of timber with a hole, sized to the conduit, through it. This then had a radius edge put around it so that when bending the tube it wouldn't foul on the former block hole as it is pushed through. Tube is inserted in hole and bent a little then pushed through hole a little and bent a little more and so on until you have the bend you want. Mark where you bend so that any adjustments can be made in the same place.

    Ford Pivot Pin ID

    Good to see you found your other one. Nut is described in parts book as Part No. 33969-S 1/2"-20 slotted thin nut. Being listed as a standard part, I presume it will be UNF Out of interest does it run in a bush and/or is there a lubricator/grease nipple for it?

    Ford Pivot Pin ID

    Have you tried Small Ford Spares, they may have what you are looking for as something they have picked up along the way. https://www.smallfordspares.co.uk/ Looked at a 47/48 7V spare parts illustration/list and it appears to be part no. BBE-2824-XB listed as Bolt ( hand brake lever pivot ) There is also a bush as part no. BBE-2823-X. Going by that part no. it predates the 7V by a few years

    '36 Fordson pick up

    I don't think it is a cut down Fordson Y type van body as long rad vans did not have a front bumper or running boards or wind down door glass

    '36 Fordson pick up

    Ford Model Y I reckon, with an 8HP engine (RAC Rating) as built 1932 to 1937. Looks to be a cut down Fordor
