I have just got my loyd tracked starting and charging back from New Zealand and I am hoping to rebuild with the S&C gear. A lot of work has already been done before I bought it, but still plenty to do. Luckily I am 30minutes from Alastair who knows just about everything about Loyd's and has sorted many of the problems I would have ran into.

The Loyd was built by Vivian Loyd & Co and the brake drums are dated 42. 

I have got a few parts stashed away Including a good flathead V8 as I was told the engine with it is on +60tho cylinders.

I am missing most of the starting & charging gear, I have got the PTO and 6 belt drive pulley and the 2 gallon stone were jar for distilled water.

Any help tracking down any parts would be useful.

There should be a 12V and 30V dynamos with 3 belt pulleys and 3 control boards. Also battery trays on the floor and a battery shelf across the top of the bulkhead and along the sides. There should be 4 15 foot cables for jumping and some storage boxes/trays. Also the floor cover for the dynamos.

Any leads on parts or measurements to make parts would be a great help.

Peter.

Good luck Pete....there is a pile of highly useful ‘scrap’ coming your way next week.  It will be excellent to have a starter charger Loyd restored in England.

It's not the best time for me to start another project as we have started harvest today. But there are some smaller jobs I can get on with so I am ready to start after harvest.

Alastair is sorting out the measurements and paperwork from when he had his 4 brake cables made so I can get a set done.

I have removed the rear axle which was bolted up for shipping. The castings that attach it are badly corroded and there are a pair of new castings which need machining. I will drop the with the engineer's to get them bord out drilled and then cut in 2 parts.

Peter.

I have sorted through the box of brake parts tonight as I need the original cable ends to get the new cables made. It looks like there is a full set of brake parts for all 4 brakes, happy days!

Thanks for the offer but it's not right for the Loyd

I have asked Alastair to post some pictures out of the manual of what I need.

Alastair dropped of a load of parts last night.

There is a driver's floor to use as a pattern with the brake and throttle peddles which I will re-use.

There are 2 set's of pattern plates that fit under the engine and gearbox.

There is another rear axle which is also an early type the latter one's been larger heavier tube which has a tie bar and poor back plates.

There are 2 sets of chassis braces to support the rear axle which will be used as patterns to get new ones folded up.

The front brake back plates are standard ford truck but the back ones are different. I have got 4 front one's.  I have just got a correct pair of rear one's off Alastair in very bad condition. They had to be cut as they were rusted solid to the brake drums. My plan is to try to cut the centre out of the back plates from Alastair and weld them into the truck back plates while keeping things centred and flat. May end in a mess!

Good luck with your project.

I went to have a look at one this week, but there wasn't enough there to make a project from.

Thanks Adrian for posting. 

I hope the more pictures and info that is posted about the starting charging gear the more likely someone will find something.

Thanks Richard.

I have a good idea which one you looked at. I also looked at it. My original plan was to do a tracked towing with 4.2"mortar but when my TS&C came up it was far better than any thing else I had been offered. Don't give up it took me a year to find mine.

There is always an exception, but if you want a Loyd TT project you need to be looking in Norway, France or Belgium.

Well got rained off from harvesting so got the day off. Not a lot done as I'm knackered but I got the second brake back plate off and axle tie bar out the axle from Alastair. There was one badly corroded nut left on the back plate to remove which I cut with a cold chisel. I also cut the nuts off the tie bar. The tie bar will have to be remade as the ends are badly corroded but I now have a good pattern.

I also looked at the brake bars which connects the tillers and handbrake with the brake cables, one has been cut and they are both badly corroded. I have striped the complete one down and ground the weld off round the boss so it could be knocked out. I will use the bar as a pattern to cut 2 new ones and reuse the bosses.

Peter.

I collected the castings to mount the rear axle from the engineer's. They said they were very good quality castings to machine.

Also collected some folded channel to make the rear axle stays.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
