  1. No other information apart from I've seen it and it's an A9 with non standard tracks.
  2. Sorry pictures won't upload at moment. Will try tomorrow.
  3. I started rebuild the engine cover framework by getting the chassis out on the floor and levelling it up with spirit level. I then made the 2 rear uprights. These are 2" angle iron with a base that bolts to the curved part of the chassis. I had the pieces cut out but has not made them up as I wasn't sure of the measurements. Once the uprights were made and fitted I measured forward and clamped an angle iron across the chassis to mark the front edge of the front hoop/frame I had made previously then drilled and bolted it in place. I then made the 2 side rails bolted them at the f
  4. I've managed to sort some parts out today, some for patterns some to use and some partly remade all working towards getting the engine frame work and covers done. I've got the front frame ready to locate and drill in position. The front frame once in position will then give me the location of the 3 middle floor plates as they bolt together. I've held off finishing and fitting these floor plates as I wasn't sure how to locate them. The rear frame is also done and this just needs cutting to length and drilling. First I need to finish making the 2 uprights and fit the front frame to give me the h
  5. The Loyd project had ground to a holt through a combination of needing to start painting and not been able to borrow parts and get information to make missing parts. Luckily I have now managed to borrow a front engine frame and grill although a later type grill. So today I worked out how I'm going to make the front and rear engine frames. This is my first attempt, I decided to cut the side off the angle iron and clamp it to a jig then weld curved piece in.
  6. I'm looking for a copy of British Cruiser Tank A13 Mk1 & Mk2 by Peter brown, ISBN, 9788360672235. Thanks Peter.
  7. V8 water pumps have the front engine mount on them and military v8's have double pulleys.
  8. Thanks for taking the time to try and help. Peter.
  9. This part is to adjust the rod length and fits in the middle of the rod. One end of the rod looks to be threaded and the other slides in and locks by tightening the small nut on the side. I've not seen anything like this set up before. Thanks for the suggestion. If it comes to it I will have to have one made. Peter.
  10. I'm looking for an enots throttle rod adjusters which fits on the rod that runs from the gearbox cross member to the top of the engine. Pictures belong to Alastair! Peter.
  11. Another harvest done and drilling going well so starting to think about the Loyd again. I have repaired Alastair's original throttle linkage that sits on top of the engine and made one for myself. Still need a special bolt and a boss machining up. Yet again the starter charger has thrown up some differences. Also the rod that run up to this linkage is a different part number and appears to attach to the linkage in a different way. Peter.
  12. Thanks for that. Looks to be a good option. Peter.
  13. Thanks. Just looked them up and they have the ones I need at a very good price. Peter.
  14. Dose anyone have any solder on battery lead grounds with twin bolt holes 7/8" apart. I need about 5 but will take singles. They were used on ww2 British tanks. Were they used post war? Thanks Peter.
