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.
