  1. Which, gas envelope or overhead cables as per tram? A great choice of picture methinks
  2. This has been tried in the past, cannot remember where but think it was using long leads held up off the ground Antique Tractor Electric - Bing images
  3. Poor electrical connections also generate heat via arcing, presumably there would be other symptoms though
  4. Lots of pictures here Fany WW1 - Bing images
  5. I would advise against the use of oak as the acid(s) within are not conducive to the long term survival of your pride and joy See here What screws do you use in oak? (ehow.co.uk) Corrosion of metals associated with wood - Victoria and Albert Museum (vam.ac.uk)
  6. Cheers for that, just curious as to how it all goes together. All that lovely craftsmanship and then just nailed on, as per back in the day! As its being covered with canvas no one is going to see the heads. The nails aren't driven into through the tongue are they, secret nailed? Is the tongue uppermost and no groove on the lowest board? Are the dowel holes slightly offset so that when the dowels are driven in they pull the tenon into the joint? Haunched mortice and tenons, with a rebate too! My woodworking lessons weren't wasted on me.
  7. How are the T & G boards secured to the frame work...large short screws? What about the ends of those boards to same? Thanks
  8. Modern pre cleaners with explanations https://www.donaldson.com/en-be/engine/filters/products/air-intake/accessories/pre-cleaners/
  9. Original Rare ww1 British army Truck lamp /Head light https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2060353.m570.l1313&_nkw=333865431292&_sacat=0
  10. How big/little, diameter and length? I suspect RS Components would be a good place to start. As an example https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/cartridge-fuses/0563380/
  11. Item 30, or very similar, is for sale on face book if you search "vintage brass 12v car inspection light"
  12. Are the floor boards plain or tongued and grooved or grooved with a separate tongue?
  13. Are these for dusty environments or just a different type of filter?
  14. M275 opened in 1976 A large chunk of the former scrap yard is now the Park & Ride site
  15. How did they get the V8 in there as it looks kind of snug with the tall four?
  16. Decompressors were optional on Agri engines
  17. Looking good, these engines were always good starters, but were not used in Fordson Dextas, that's a Perkins derivative.
  18. Yes, I think it is an industrial or truck engine of 1961 vintage. Your fuel injection pump was not used on the Fordson Major, the tractor fuel lift pump was mounted directly to the block where your blank plate is attached. I do not know how interchangeable the tractor and industrial/truck engine parts are.
  19. That is were the tractor engines fuel pump is mounted, so I would say yes. Camshaft should be the same on all 4 cylinder mk 11 engines, according to my source, Vintage Tractor Special No. 10 Fordson New Major E1A 1951-64 The 8 bolt injection pump was introduced in december 1953 and not 1957 as I erroneously mentioned, my mistake, sorry. Are your casting marks F29F? I make this to be May 29 1961 but stand to be corrected
  20. I would say your engine is a mk 11 industrial version, post April 1957, as it has 6 fixings for rocker cover and 8 bolts to the fuel injection pump cover. Have you any casting codes (letters/numbers) on the other(near) side towards the front below exhaust manifold and above the dynamo? The tractor version of engine does not have the fuel pump mounted on the injection pump. A Ford Industrial Products dealer should be able to help you with regards year/age of engine. 6 cylinder versions had the injection pump driven by a short shaft, I wouldn't know whether that would be feasible or not. I should imagine getting parts for that would prove to be difficult, but not necessarily impossible as they are a popular engines for repowering Majors
  21. Does this run a torque tube to the transfer box?
  22. 1506 and 1508 not shown/used, perhaps it should read 1329 as these were 550 gallon fuel tanker. Interesting picture, no booms to refueller, although I don't know when they were/were not used. That looks like 1308 on the door, maybe an error when being marked up pre invasion, presumably the picture was taken in '44 or later?
  23. From quoted book Type 1307 = 1000 Gallons fuel tanker Type 1308 = 2000 Gallons fuel tanker Type 2400 = Petrol and oil refuellers Type 1306 = Mobile operations room
  24. @rewdcoA few questions, What is the soft iron or copper wire for (emergency) HT lead? Where does the supplementary triangular toolkit get stowed? In that triangular toolbox, when stowed, what is the item on the right, a funnel? I'm an electrician but I've never seen insulating tape in a tin, presumably this is a cloth backed bitumas type of tape? Interesting that the fixing for the large toolbox is called a pin, secured with a nut and washer! As above, great attention to detail putting that lot together, thank you for sharing with us
