Matchless WD G3L battery box Holder

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help with a close up picture of the battery box holder at the side of the top and also at the hinge ? I'm fabricating one based on a few pictures and what I have left, But cant tell if the hinge was separate and brazed/ welded on or it was all one piece.

Also where the two halfs meet up over the battery box, a picture I took at the W&P show a few years back show they are off centre.

Here are some pix of my G3 and G3L that I already have on file if it helps. The bottom hinge appears to be welded on. You'd have thought they would have rolled it from the same piece of metal? I'll probably be around here all day if you need anything else or measurements. Ron

PS. Factory pictures included.

Thanks Ron , thats excellent, makes life a lot easier with that weld, I can near enough judge the sizes etc of the hole and the slot, just the fastening assembly diameter and length would be handy.

I've made a rough sketch of the closing parts. The hex head screws on mine are stainless steel copied from an original, but I made the thread a bit longer as the original was a struggle to reach. Ron

Thank you for doing that Ron, I spent all day behind a steering wheel - didn't make it into my workshop...
