Loyd TS&C T69261

Recommended Posts

Bit of a steady day today. I drilled and fitted the second body support plate then made some tooling to press some support plates that fit on top of the cross member to level the floor with the gearbox cross member. As the pattern one was a bit mangled I first clamped a length of plate to the gearbox cross member and made a template to get the correct angle. I then made some tooling to the template and pressed it hot in 4mm plate and cut down to size.

The new grease seals for the wheels turned up to today.

I have never known how or where the belt drive pulleys fit. It has to line up with the PTO and the corresponding hole in the cross member. I now have a copy of the starter charger parts book so I thought I would have another look. Although the parts book is not over clear it dose give an idea of the angle and position of the pulley bracket. I managed to work out that it bolts to the angle irons that mount the belly plates but this throws up the problem that the angles of the angle irons are wrong. It would appear that the starter chargers had different belly plates and angle irons to other Loyd's so I will have to alter the angle irons and remake the 2 front belly plates.

Another little job done is the 4 plates that weld to the body support plates with a bolt going through them and the suspension lock collar to hold the body support plate on the axle end. I first cut and folded some 3mm plate into a C section, it took a couple goes to work out the measurements to get a tight fit over the collar. I then cut them to shape and lined up, marked and drilled the holes. I managed to weld the first one on. I didn't have a correct size bolt to hand so I used a drill bit to line everything up.

Another little job! There is a tray across the the inside of the front lower plate. The top edge is bent back on it's self on a 1/4" ID curve . I made some tooling up and pressed the edge on. Unfortunately the tray is slightly wider than my folder so I had to take it to the engineer's to get folded. I have made a second one for Alastair's Loyd.

"I did manage to get my mig welder going on some of the higher setting so I was able to weld the ends on the tray. It wasn't pretty but it cleaned up O.K. I drilled the first 2 holes and positioned the tray. Just need to drill the rest of the holes. The clips for the fuel line run along the tray.

Been and paid for and looked at my new exhaust stubs this morning. Although I was charged for 6 the pattern maker cocked up and only got 4 cast. 2 more to follow shortly then they will be machined up.

I have managed to grab a few minutes here and there over the last few days and got my first job done since harvest. Nothing exciting just a bar that attaches the headlight bracket to the track guard but it's a start. I had one original bar as a pattern although it's not stepped evenly and the holes aren't centred. I have cleaned and primed them both. 

Also I have been looking at the pioneer brackets and they looked familiar so after checking the part numbers I confirmed that they are the same as a universal carrier so I can just copy the ones I have.

I have just realised that I did some stuff before harvest and forgot to post it. 

I fitted and welded the right hand front and rear track guard ends. I am not totally happy with the front and plan to alter it. I also took Simon's advice and bort a right angle drill although I went for an air one as they were lots of holes needing drilling that I could not get to and finally I sprayed some parts.

I managed to get a slave lead socket today.

I am looking for 3 plugs to fit. They are ruffly 1 ¼" by 1 1/8". I have found  someone with one that I car copy but it would be nice to get an original.

I have been looking at the headlight arrangement.

I had one original bar that bolts to the track guard and have made a second I need to make a pair of clamps to fit on these bars to hold the U shaped headlight mounts. I have one original U shaped mount that is damaged. I am currently having 3 new ends turned and a piece of metric tube turned down to repair the original and make a second. I have one original headlight light bowl that was squashed that I have started to straighten. I managed to buy a similar headlight on Sunday and hope to build a good one out the 2. I still need a second headlight or parts in any condition or even just the brass mountings off the side of the bowl.

I spent most of the weekend try to find and sort out parts and get all the Loyd parts in to 2 locations. 

I was surprised to find a spare pioneer bracket I didn't know I had. I must have made an extra one years ago. I will just have to weld the corner up as it has a cut out for the Stacy tow arms on the the universal carrier then it will go straight on the front of the Loyd.

I have made the 2 panels that go either side of the instrument panel although they still need drilling. One mounts the fuse box and the other the speedo. I have made a start on the instrument panel and started welding up the corner of the pioneer bracket.

I have been cleaning and priming parts the last few days. Had a surprise tonight when I started cleaning a trailing arm off a suspension unit, it was a brass/bronze casting.

After seeking some advice I was told these castings were used on early Loyd's. Always learning!

I have managed to find another correct complete headlight on eBay and although rusty looks to be N,O,S, though not cheep. I have so picked up another headlight rim of the correct profile although it's brass, I should have enough parts to build the original headlight bucket up to make a matching pair.

Been to the engineer's today to collect some parts. I've had a piece of metric tube turned down to ¾" OD and ½" ID for the headlight mounting. One end of the original headlight mounting was damaged so they removed it by heating it up and breaking the braze then they turned up 3 new ends which will need brazing in and finally I had a new handbrake pivot pin made.

Otherwise I am continuing to clean and prime parts although I did bend the tube tonight for the headlight mounting.

I have managed to pick up another headlight today and cheep! Several people told me they were hard to find!

Also picked up a 1941 dated blow lamp. Don't know if it's correct for the tool kit but it's the first I've ever seen dated.

Otherwise I'm continuing to clean and prime parts.

I have finally got round to collecting my box of parts from New Zealand. There is a brake back plate for the rear axle, a handbrake leaver, a plate for the tow hitch and a drawing for the tow hitch mounting brackets. Thanks to Andrew.

Also thanks to Adrian who collected and stored to parts until I could collect them. We also dropped off an early and late pattern petrol tanks for Adrian to copy for myself and Alistair.

Thanks for your comments. They give me encouragement in the cold dark nights. Still a long way to go but working through thing's one piece at a time.

A little job that got started but not finished was the throttle peddle. I had removed the bushes from the old tube and had a new tube machined and bushes fitted. So today I drilled some 4mm plate cut a new bottom half of the peddle and a plate to operate the throttle rod then welded them in position on the tube. I did re-use the top half of the peddle. I also straightened and built up with weld some damage on the throttle peddle stop.

Another little job that needed finishing was to drill and fit the brackets for the speedo and fuse box. I had measured Alastair original front panel last Tuesday. I still need to cut the hole for the speedo (still looking for a speedo) and either need to find a black top or possible paint the white top for the fuse box.

While I had an electric cable in the shed I also refitted the left rear panel and trimmed the corner so it layed flat on the chassis rail. This can now be marked along the chassis rail, removed and cut to size.

Been to collect some more parts from the engineer's today. They have finished machining the exhaust stubs which was not cheep but they have done a good job. I had the ends braised on the headlight brackets. They have machined 4 outer spacers for the suspension units (they are now doing 4 inner after I found one in the end of a suspension unit). They also drilled the large holes in the dash panel as the chuck is broken for my large pillar drill. I have also posted a picture of the pattern for the exhaust stubs.

Dose anyone know of a source for the dished washers that fit the ends of the springs that protects the headlights from shock. I have ordered a set of springs.

I had a look at the handbrake set-up this weekend. I knew the toothed quadrant for the handbrake was wrong and needed altering. First I checked the new pin I'd had made fitted. Good start it didn't, the part it fits through that pulls the brake rods was bent so it had to be straightened which messed up the paint so I cleaned it back to bare metal and re primed it. I then drilled a hole out from ½" to 5/8" in the quadrant and ruffle marked where it needed cutting. I popped over to Alastair's  to double check where to cut it and measure a bracket that bolts between the floor and the quadrant. The quadrant is now correct and I have made up the bracket but not drilled it and left it slightly long until I get the floor done and the handbrake in place. I have just got to clean and prime the leaver and the handbrake is all but done.

Peter.
