  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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

    Pictures please. See "Fordson Model N 1929-45" and "Fordson Model N Miscellany 1929-45" By Allan T Condie publications
  5. '36 Fordson pick up

    Paul Becks(as was) 1933 short rad van with large doors, straight bumper and running boards, from the first batch I believe. My source Ford Model Y by Sam Roberts
  6. '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
  7. '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

    Unfortunately the D Day museum in Southsea, Portsmouth is closed for refurbishment, reopening in the spring of 2018. See here http://www.ddaymuseum.co.uk/
  9. WANTED - Emergency Stop Button Assy

    Almost definitely 240/440v switchgear/control gear. Nearest I could find to this is postwar MEM. It is a similar colour grey and only has two fixings to hold the cover on. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MEM-1-CSU-L-Stop-Push-Button-Vintage-MADE-in-ENGLAND-Cast-Iron/252759931822?hash=item3ad9aa7bae:g:tNIAAOSwnHZYcS-N
  10. Caterpillar ?? in the woods

    I managed to work out it was a Fowler FD3 from the track plate design/style and then came across this image when doing a google search https://www.flickr.com/photos/roystonvasey/4496629524
  11. I take it the 55Kv generator trailer is as rare as rocking horse stuff! Is it similar to the murex one? I cannot find any pictures after a, brief, online search.
  12. Yep that's the one. In my defence I could only read TERRY! That must be a. little, bit easier than dismantling the spring albeit still not that easy.
  13. A few questions about both trailers/tools- 1, What is the Admiralty pattern object, and what is it for? 2, What is the unusual, to me, G cramp type object for? 3, What electrical items do they use these trailers/tools to repair? 4. Where do they get their power from? Thanks in advance
  14. Morris commercial C4

    Out of curiosity is there a need to have this drive shaft balanced? What sort of revs are required to run the generator or does the generator run at? or do the flange couplings take care of this? Do they(flange couplings) have a rubber component?

    There must be room for a Servant or Batman in the officers ration pack, to cook his meals :whistle:
