  1. Thanks for the tip, I will keep that in mind when installing the pump again. I need to make new fuel pipes between the filter/pump and pump/carburetor, the old ones were not usable as patterns. If anybody could post a picture that shows how they were routed I would really appreciate it. Either from the manual or from an actual K6 or similar Austin.
  2. Thank you both for your answers, I didn't think about the break in the arm being on the wrong side untill you mentioned it. There is a witness mark on the wrong side as you said, so the conclusion must be that the pump was correct, but installed with the arm on the wrong side of the cam. Also thanks for confirming the pump and arm type. I will try to solder the arm back on and see if it works when installed correctly. Do you know if there is an online manual or parts list somewhere?
  3. Hello We were picking up an Austin K6 from the other side of the country (Norway) and driving it home when we suddenly got a fuel supply issue. The fuel pump was not pumping, bypassed it with an electrical pump and made it home ok. Now it's time to correct the problem, we suspected a bad diaphragm, but when I took out the pump I discovered the arm was broken. I silver soldered the arm and got a really strong bond, still it broke immediately when turning the engine. I suspect the pump might be wrong for the engine. Can anybody confirm if "AC Type U 6H6 965" is the correct one please?
  4. This Thornycroft was bought by Rogaland Krigshistoriske Museum near Stavanger, Norway. It will be restored. Have a look at our facebook page for more pictures of the Thornycroft and our other projects: https://www.facebook.com/groups/rkmuseum/
  5. The chassis is a German Sd.Kfz. 8 half-track. The transfer case doesn't belong on it, it was welded in when a farmer modified the vehicle. The farmer probably got the transfer case from a ww2 military vehicle, the question is which. :undecided:
  6. I guess this is a tough one then. Anybody want to guess nationality?
  7. Can anybody identify this transfer case? Thank you!
  8. Good job! Amazing restoration! It's interesting that the old transmission was rebuilt in Norway, and your NOS transmission also came from Norway. Norwegian writing on the crate.
  9. The plate on the starter says it was rebuilt in a military workshop near Stavanger, Norway.
  10. Thanks for the warm welcome guys! Joris: The museum is mainly about what happened in the south-western part of Norway, in the Stavanger region, during ww2. But also Norwegian military history from 1939 to today. This offcourse results in a lot of different military vehicles for us to source, restore and put in context, the Loyd being one of them. ajmac: Thans for the information! It's really interesting, the museum got the Loyd many years ago, it was believed to be a Dennis. The engine is a 21 bolt, so it could be the original
  11. Looks like you don't have this one from Norway: http://hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/showthread.php?29654-Hello-from-Norway&p=302889#post302889 :-)
  12. Hi My name is Asbjørn, I found this forum when searching for information about our museum's Loyd Carrier TT No. 1 (T258589). All horizontal surfaces are badly rusted from being stored outside, the vertical ones are very good. The engine was disassembled years ago by somebody, seems to be good, but there was probably a reason for disassembling it. Sorry about the crappy pictures, will get some better ones once all the stuff stored around it has been moved. Check out our website to see a list of our other vehicles (not in English yet, sorry): http://krigshistorisk-museum.no/index.php/no/kjoretoy/1945
