  1. Many thanks, I presume that is because of the radiator fan? Until now I have not come across a picture of the same engine. It looks fairly big for a car although not impossible but I like the tank idea! There is some kind of gear wheel installed behind the clutch, what could this be used for?
  2. I found this Th. Schneider engine, it is a fairly big engine.. Anyone an idea what these engines were fitted in? Thanks, Marcel
  3. When I was restoring the Peugeot, a friend who has several old cars and motorcycles recommended Rhino Silkolene 140. He has used this oil for several decades in his vehicles, so that is what I am using.
  4. Making gears is a lot of fun! I have spent a few days figuring out the maths before attempting to make these on my contemporary milling machine. They were missing from a 1912 gas engine that I am restoring. Looking forward to seeing the new gears, it would be nice if you could make some pictures of the machining. Marcel
  5. I found the picture of the big crane. I am almost sure that I saved it from this forum but I don't know who posted it first. Regards Marcel
  6. I would love to restore one of these. Were they actually used during WW1? I remember seeing a picture of a crane on a tank chassis, I think it was on this forum. Here is a picture of a Dewald with a crane mounted, post WW1. Regards Marcel
  7. Those rear hubs remind me of the hubs on the Renault HO tractor, I don't think it is electric driven. Anyway, it is a fantastic machine, I want it 🤪😀!
  8. The torque on the diff and the halfshafts is higher on a worm drive rear and than on a chain drive. I think that is the reason that chain drive was used on quite a few heavy duty trucks until the 1950's.
  9. I think this yours as well, pictures taken back in 2012. There were lots of interesting things there but back then nearly impossible to buy anything. Quite a few people must have watched the site as I know of several items that found a good home after the owner passed away.
  10. I was given these wheels. The rubber is held onto the rims with a steel band in the center. Outside diameter is about 730mm and width 100mm. The centers have been cut out many years ago. Anyone recognize from what vehicle they might be? Regards Marcel
  11. The water got into the sump, we drained it off when we got it home. The engine is loose but will need complete dismantling before we will attempt to start it again. Transmission was just above the water level, and as it is a chain drive the diff is integrated into the gearbox so no rear end issues. Marcel
  12. Nothing has been done to the Dewald yet. It sits in our shed in a strategically positioned way as it is in my view during breakfast (when I'm home). There is a tag on the engine that says it has been modified for the use with a wood gasser by Michel Coasnès. I found an old note of this company that says 'spare parts of my own fabrication adaptable to Dewald and all types of Laffly trucks' I am guessing that this company also did the modification of the rear wheels (and probably the fronts). The truck will be restored mechanically only, and for now we will leave the tyres. Regards, Marcel
  13. All you have to do is click on the picture, that will bring you to the thread. Regards Marcel
  14. If you look into the thread, you'll see the current status of the Peugeot on the last page. On page 3 and 4 there are some pictures of what we did with the front wheels. It is not quite finished yet, but running good.
  15. Here is a different approach on page 3. I was lucky some years ago to obtain vulcanised strips off a traction engine.
  16. Not sure whether these are WW1, I think later. Anyone ever heard of the 'Truck and Tractor Appliance'? This is the only link I can find on the www: https://www.britainfromabove.org.uk/en/image/EPW034851 My friend took the pictures last week, he thinks it is a front (steering) axle. Thanks Marcel
  17. Absolutely stunning! The same applies to the Ransomes, that was one of my favourites at the GDSF 2018. Many thanks for sharing.
  18. Two Shervicks have been scrapped in Belgium between 2003-2005. One was in Ostend, I was only a couple of weeks late, the track marks could still be seen. The other one was near Mons and had been cut up a month before I knew about it. I will see if I can find the pictures.

    I don't want to derail the thread but wouldn't mind seeing a picture of the Mogul, is it a 8-16 or 10-20?
  20. I have a small universal grinder with an attachement for internal grinding. With a stone dressed conical and with the right diameter it would make an easy job of it. I imagine that someone near you has the right equipment. I would gladly do it for you guys at no charge, if only I were closer. Regards Marcel (enjoying this thread very much!)
  21. That looks very good! Do you have the other tools and dynamo? It will make a great display when finished. Marcel
  22. I came across this ad on Smokstak: https://www.enginads.com/classifieds/showproduct.php/product/161828/cat/42 Any old pictures of such a trailer in use? Regards, Marcel
  23. Yes, also the worm gear says Fordson. I wonder how it ended up there like this?
