  2. I've seen these oil channels and turned holes in 30s Mercedes engines. Seems it's a common feature. There is an old trick to reuse slightly worn bushings - press them out, tinplate with babbitt alloy the outside, then press them back in place. In the process some of the babbitt is removed by the conrod, but enough remains to tighten the bushing so much, that the pin would not fit in it. So, after reaming to size, it is as good as new. I guess new new is the best :), but material was scarce at some times, so such tricks were used. Have tried it myself and really works.

  4. VAOS (Vocabulary of Army Ordnance Stores) Section LV7 covers components that are peculiar to British vehicles that are of non-standard design ie not to WO design. I have quite a few VAOS LV7 from various years & I can find no vehicle manufacturer with the code GB. However GB, not surprisingly, is the code for identifying components made by Girling Brakes that are listed only in VAOS Sections LV6 MT1 - MT15. Components in these sections are applicable to more than one vehicle type. The Section LV6MT9 includes braking components. I believe that the spring has been wrongly catalogued as LV7/GB and should have been identified as LV6MT9/GB I find that it was later NATO codified as 2530-99-936-4716 looking at the earlier identifier is given as LV6MT9/GB41241, which confirms my suspicion. So this could fit more than one vehicle type & I see was also used by Malaysia.

  6. I was very fortunate some time ago to have the opportunity to purchase a set of blank pressings produced by Richard Taylor. The pressings have to be worked up from the blanks and then modified to fit the specific area under repair. the first two photos are from Richard's post, I forgot to take photos as I worked up my pressings so I include them here to show the work required. These are my pressings drain and drain channel at the bottom of the photo and the seal channel and the repair to the top of the scuttle at the top Without these pressings making a good workable repair would be very hard indeed the seal panel and the drain channel have to be welded together to form one unit before welding into the scuttle. Here it is tacked into position Pete

  7. After a couple of weeks in the molasses tub the vent parts were fished out washed off and given the standard treatment the lid will need a touch of spray filler to finish it off, the glove box hinge has also crept into the act in this photo Meanwhile it was out with the slitting wheel take a deep breath and bash on.......... no turning back now This photo shows all that remained of the seal trough and drain, ah well there we are then.

  8. The cam followers have presented their own problem in the way of finish. They were usually made from bronze, but wartime expedience led to ferrous replacements, which is what we have. Painting them would have been a bit of a cop out and the condition was not too bad........ So, I invested two days hand polishing into the job and seven of them now look quite presentable. ( one is best viewed from a distance ! ) I also got a first coat of Service Colour on the crankcase. A good productive weekend was had at the cost of two sore thumbs.

  9. Fabricating the repair pieces for the scuttle panel should be fun🤨 I done a similar job a few years ago on a dodge WC51, trying to get the same gap around the vent flap was just a little time consuming!! but satisfying when finished.

  10. Effort over the last couple of weeks has focused on the scuttle vent, the vent lid and operating gear fortunately were in not too bad a condition the seal channel, the drain and surrounding area was just toast. So first job was to remove the lid and operating gear View under the dash complete with original return spring which is nice Lid and operating arm removed Lid, operating lever and hinge bracket disassembled ready to go into the molasses bath for a couple of weeks 4 Pete

  11. Yesterday there was an antiques program on tv a couple had a little russian home tabernacle in silver. They had the plan throwing it in the bin, but it got sold for 800 euros... People are stupid. I did fish the complete construction drawings of our local coal mine from a waste paper stack on the road side.

  13. The position of the hole in the bush may have been to direct oil to the thrust side of the gudgeon pin.
