    Firstly a big thanks to Adrian who came up with a line drawing of the hand throttle. It would appear that it is a short cable with a push pull knob like a choke from the carb to the front of the engine cover and operated from the rear of the Loyd. This means the throttle peddle and linkages are standard Loyd and I can start rebuilding them. I popped over to Alastair's tonight and took loads of measurements and pictures also got some more small parts and raided his scrap pile for pattern parts. Pictures to follow. Peter.

    I got a few hours in tonight but I was jumping between jobs as there was a lot of heating and waiting for things to cool down. First job was to start making the cage that sits over the torque tube, handbrake and tiller rods. I have made these before and have a jig to bend 2 of the bars, I had sorted some metal out on Sunday for this job. The first bar was rolled through my poor sheet metal roller that is not supposed to roll 6mm bar the second bar is just a straight bar and these were both cut down to size and drilled. The last 2 bars were bent in the jig with heat. I was jumping between jobs as thing's cooled down. Next job was to cut one of the angle irons that run down the sides of the torque tube off the floor. This is only good as a pattern and the second one wasn't worth cutting off. I then found 2 off cuts of angle iron to use to make a new pair. Last job was to finish stripping the clutch pedal, this was just a case of a lot of heat! Peter.

    Importing a vehicle from Norway

    I don't think Norway is in the EU. I think you will be taxed at 5% of vehicle and shipping. You need to talk to a shipping agent they will do the paper work and sort the tax and they don't cost that much. Also if it gets stopped they can sort it out. Peter.

    I started today by removing the track adjuster rods from the stub axles. I heated them up and got them moving first. They are held on by special studs that lock into and run in a grove on a pin on the stub axle. The head's of these studs had long since gone so I drilled them out. I will have some new studs made and weld a new thread on in place of the damaged thread. I then finished the brackets for the return springs that fit to the brake bars, these are a start charger part and not fitted to other types of Loyd's. Next was to remove and strip down the clutch and throttle peddles. I decided to try to free them off while still attached to the floor plate. The clutch was first, lots of heat on the tube and it moved very easily so I removed the nut and the long bolt slid out without to much trouble. Then the throttle, this is lighter construction and badly corroded, I heated it up and taped the peddle which just bent. I then got a pair of mole grips on the tube and soon had it moving, I removed the nut and got the long bolt out, this put up a bit of a fight. The throttle peddle will have to be mostly replaced due to corrosion. I then cut the 2 floor stiffening bars off the floor, these will have to be remade. Followed by cutting off the 2 angle irons that mount the peddles which I hope to re-use. Peter.

    Alastair pop over this morning and dropped off some more parts and picked up a seal for his Loyd. There is a broken brake bar with the boss. The clutch and throttle linkage pivot. The clutch released lever for the bell housing. There is a pair of stub axles with the adjusters on and the castings they adjust against. I got the boss cut out and welded in the new brake bar and started making the brackets for the return springs. We think these are a part only used on the starter chargers. I also repaired one of the brackets that mount the brake bars which had been court with a cutting torch. Forgot pictures of finished parts. Peter.

    The parts book list a hand throttle for the starter charger which would be for running the PTO. Has anyone got any pictures or info on this? Peter.

    Having put the early and later type of tillers side by side you can see how the early type got bent or broken. Also most all picture of surviving early Loyd's I have seen have later type tillers or early one's which have been strengthened. I will keep them as is for now as I am interested to see how they work or don't. I will keep the pair of later type tillers. I think they can be changed over in an hour. Thanks for the advice Peter.

    I finish welding the second tiller mounting bracket this morning. Then I repaired the tiller leaver bottom and built up the other one with weld. Next I cut slots in the tiller tubes and welded the tiller tubes to the bottoms. The tillers now just need new washers and castle nuts to finish. I have been able to save 4 clevises but will need to have 3 of the slotted clevises made. I dropped the one good slotted clevis off at the engineer's on Friday to get them made along with 4 new control rods. Alastair has got me 4 clevises from the US for the brake cable ends so there will just be the cables to have remade and the handbrake leaver from Andrew to finish the brake/steering controls. Next I will look at the clutch and throttle peddles and the "cage" that goes over the prop shaft and handbrake, I have already made some of these before and still have the jig. Peter.

    Thanks Andrew. That will be a big help. Hopefully things are starting to slow down at work so I can get on with it. Peter.

    I have decided to have a go making some early tillers. I will reuse the remains of the tillers I have striped off the floor from Alastair. I ordered some tube of the correct size and found an old pipe bender in the shed, this is only for bending copper pipe. So I heated tube slowly moving along as it bent trying not to get it too hot as the pipe bender is only aluminium. I am very happy with the results as the 2 new tillers are a good mach to each other and the original. The original bottom pieces will need some work. The first will need building up with weld as it is a bit thin. The second has had the bottom broken off so will a new bottom making and welding on. Peter.

    I have straightened and repaired the mounting bracket for the first tiller and I have removed the second bracket and remains of the tiller, striped it down and straightened it and got the bracket ready to weld back together. Peter.

    I managed to get another couple hours tonight so carried on with the tillers. I got the driver's floor that came from Alastair into the shed and knocked most or the rust and muck. I then removed the right hand tiller and mounting. This was done by splitting the nut with a cold chisel. I then striped it down with lots of heat. No serious damage done to the parts just a couple of burnt fingers. I will able to repair and reuse the mounting parts for the tillers. Some of the pictures didn't come out well. It got dark early and very quickly tonight. Peter.

    Started looking at the tillers tonight. I have a pair which I have already repaired but they are the later reinforced type. I could use these as when the early type were damaged they would have been replaced with the later type. I do have an early type tiller as a pattern. I have a pair of mounting brackets on the floor I got off Alastair to repair or for patterns. Peter.

    I got the new brake bars drilled and cut out and welded the boss in one. Alastair says he has a brake bar with a good boss in it. I also striped the mounting brackets off the broken cast brake bar. I have got the base parts for the handbrake that I got with the Loyd and striped them down. The clevices are a Loyd part number so I will have to get some made. Peter.

    I went to cut the second boss out the broken brake bar tonight and before I got started I realised it was a casting and not fabricated like the first so I will have to get a boss turned up. I have made a start cutting out the new bars. Peter.
