I do remember discussing CS8 cab floors with Rory Ballard via emails. Rory mentioned that the early/pre war CS8 used a plywood floor and they changed to the planks sometime around 1938/39.

 

I am still confused to some degree because all of my CS8 have lost their original cab flooring many years ago, rotted away or eaten by termites. Only my PU has the original flooring intact thank goodness.

 

Brian Cook's drawings are excellent, he measured up the CS8 Compressor truck which is held at Duxford ? I think this is a unmolested CS8 ?

I think you will have to ask somebody or visit Duxford ?

 

The drawings I emailed to you are Brian's drawings .

 

This is the truck pictured: you should take a plane ride and measure it up !

Some details for you . I found a piece of the cowl rubber on one of my wrecks, Rory had this rubber extrusion reproduced .

 

The CS8 aero screens had a little rubber bumber rest on the cowl . I found these on my 1939 CS8

Did a Morris C4 from 1944 had this rubber cowl extrusion fitted , on my C4 there are little holes just the size of a rivet to fit this rubber.

But maybe materials came scares at the end of the war and this rubber may gave been deleted on later models ?

what do you think .

Possibly . Maybe you can have a look at your parts book and see if the cowl rubber edge is listed.

I have a series of pics of a modified CS8 , the mods enabled the truck to fit inside a DC3 AKA biscuit bomber .

 

This pic shows how the battery boxes were fitted to the floor. The cab floor has been cut down to allow fitting in the DC3 doorway.
