  1. All you have to do is click on the picture, that will bring you to the thread. Regards Marcel
  2. 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.
  3. Here is a different approach on page 3. I was lucky some years ago to obtain vulcanised strips off a traction engine.
  4. 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
  5. Absolutely stunning! The same applies to the Ransomes, that was one of my favourites at the GDSF 2018. Many thanks for sharing.
  6. 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?
  8. 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!)
  9. That looks very good! Do you have the other tools and dynamo? It will make a great display when finished. Marcel
  10. Here is a link to a Belgian horse cart:
  11. 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
  12. Yes, also the worm gear says Fordson. I wonder how it ended up there like this?
  13. Armoured Autocar: https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/armoured-car-first-world-war-mons-belgium-1.4900401 Regards Marcel
  14. I haven't seen it myself yet but would also think only for spares. If someone is in need of spares I will see what I can do. Marcel
  15. Thanks, is it worth saving?
  16. Hello, a friend came across this truck, anyone knows what make? Thank you Marcel
  17. Great video! I wonder how they managed to get the loading ramps back onto the trailer after loading the D8, they looked awfully heavy when the four men were unloading them. Regards Marcel
  18. Good job Steve! You won't hurt your arm anymore with this arrangement. I would bet it starts on the first compression if you prime it. Regards Marcel
  19. He passed away a few years ago, and nobody seems to know what is going to happen with the collection. He had a small but very nice brewery transport museum and visited with us a couple times.
  20. Starting when shut down with a charge: my son loved to do this when he was a little boy (he is now 13). It also shows the advantage of an impulse magneto. Regards, Marcel
  21. A good friends of mine has found this hay press which has been mounted on a WW1 Daimler Gaggenau chassis. It is a very neat piece of machinery, if all goes well we will be baling this weekend. Regards Marcel
  22. Hi Steve, I think an impulse is the way to go. If you prime the engine you don't have to swing it around anymore. A couple of quarter turn pulls will suffice. Regards, Marcel
  23. Dewald supplied trucks to the french government during the war, but also in the years after they had substantial contracts for military use and from building contractors. As the article in CU says, they must have been prisoner of their own concept and when the time came to modernize they missed the boat. Charles Dewald is considered as the inventor of the hydraulic tipper. If you look up his name in google patents you'll find a patent of a hydraulic ram, US 1.237.309, where oil is supplied through hollow journals. This is obviously done in order to avoid the use of a hose, which back then coul
  24. The first picture is also in the french book 'les camions de la victoire'. It is a Peugeot, not sure about the model - probably a 1525, like the one parked in front of it. They were called 'camion-bazar', most if not all of these were built on Peugeot chassis according to the writer. 1923 seems a bit late indeed. Marcel
