  1. Hi Phil, you will be using the "donut" type coupling for the engine to gearbox?. I think you need to change the input flange of the gearbox for the "3 -pronged" one, as the one that you have on is for the earlier driveshaft variant, it should only be a split pin and nut to undo and maybe a puller to remove and change out for the correct one....ready by Easter! Cheers Andrew.
  2. Peter, undo the lock wire on the bolts and that part of the UJ falls away, and then there should be a bolt in the centre of the output shaft to undo and then this half should pull away. The lug that has been cut down on the gearbox top is probably so the sheet metal gearbox cover can clear as the sides of this taper to the width of the gearbox when in place. The Ford boxes can have many different configurations, with regards to what side a handbrake is mounted, whether it has one at all, whether it is British manufacture or American , with regards to any lugs protruding, Cheers Andrew.
  3. Just out of interest if have not figured it out yet , the bearing numbers are: LJ 30 WRR = 30 x 62 x 23.8, could be about GBP15? and the other one is : 207 KTT = 35 x 72 x25 , hope that helps , Cheers Andrew.
  4. Is there such a thing as an original Dingo Mud flap, of a certain design? I have one that has a moulded bead both sides on 3 x edges and is about 10" wide x 8" high, and maybe about 3/8" thick . Open to ideas on this one ?, Thanks Andrew.
  5. Hi Barry , have you managed to finalise any pricing for these tyres, and have you looked much more into the Dingo Tyres as well? Cheers Andrew.
  6. Thanks Tim, interesting you have an Aussie one. Attached is a couple of pictures of the rod I now have that has been patterned off an original I believe. It has a couple of bends in different planes, do you concur with the pictures. I think there may have been a couple of different models, maybe one with a forged fixed clevis on the end? I still have to match up the hooked end into the Carb. , as I have not studied this area yet. Cheers Andrew.
  7. WE have done castings for the track tensioner "Cam" based from an original, have a few available, Cheers Andrew.
  8. Great Job, you have just about caught up with Alastair now! Cheers Andrew
  9. I would agree about the gusset, as I bet you will soon add it in once you start steering the Loyd! The system works reasonably well, but still not that efficient, Cheers Andrew
  10. Hi Peter , you have a handbrake and a backing plate and a drawing of the tow hitch support in transit, Cheers Andrew.
  11. Hi Phil, thought I might have some of those, were you after the triangle plate and the plastic arm holder as well? Cheers Andrew.
  12. When running, the Lamp WILL glow at half brilliance, it states that in the electrical manual. Extremely important that your batteries are very good condition, and BOTH of them. You can isolate the turret side by turning that master switch off, in the turret and so that will have no bearing on the operation of the running and generating system. I spent two days trying to find a fault that did not exist, all because one battery was crook! Cheers Andrew.
  13. I am looking for an accelerator rod for inside the engine compartment on a M3 Stuart radial engine. Even a rusty one for a pattern will do, PM if you can help, Thanks Andrew.
  14. Hi Chris, the last picture you show is the rack that contains the two jacking blocks, of about 3" thick each, the thickness of them is important when that rack is mounted on the right hand front mudguard on a standard Valentine, as the drivers door will not fully open, if more than this dimension! cheers Andrew.
  15. It was a couple of years ago , but I do not think it was that hard. The sender unit goes in the head and the wire goes to your gauge electrically. Plenty of power terminals in the junction block up the front if you have to put power in the gauge. I think the tacho just came off the dizzy , Cheers Andrew.
