  1. For Sale, Connecting Rods (3) for early commercial make unknown. Marked 1839-20 E9C. 16 inches long, big end diameter approx 2 3/8 inches. White metal big end bearing, little end has pinch bolt. New Old Stock still in original wrappings. These probably date to 1915-1924 era and may help with a restoration. All proceeds to Whitewebbs Museum, Enfield.
  2. Doug, I can do this but at the moment the Museum is shut down due to Covid. As soon as I can get there I will do this. but it may be sometime before we are in the clear. Regards, Colin.
  3. Gentlemen..Thank you for your response to my post. The chassis was in good condition when acquired and it has been painted from time to time. I was not aware of the previous unidentified chassis but I agree that it is most likely another Belsize. What we need to find is a chain drive fire engine chassis with the wooden wheels !!!!
  4. I am a volunteer worker at the Whitewebbs Museum of Transport at Enfield (north London) and these photos show a 1915/18 Belsize Lorry chassis that we acquired some years ago from a farm in Newark. In the museum we have a 1912 John-Morris-Belsize fire engine that was converted to pneumatic tyres in 1934 and lorry chassis was acquired in the hope that it might provide a set of suitable wheels to convert back to solid tyres. However, they turned out to be completely different as the fire engine wheels were originally wooden and the final drive is by chains.
