    Nice Peugeot... What is the current status of the truck?  Your picture is about 10 years old.  I really like your cast spoke wheels!

    Al.

    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.

  2. 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.

    My brother Gerald built the stand to make the wheels from his IHC Mogul tractor a bit more manageable. 

     

    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?

  4. 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

  5. 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 could not withstand the high pressure. The hydraulic system of my truck has disappeared but you can steel see the holes where the ram was fitted and the pto on the gearbox.

  6. 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.
