  1. As above. It looks home made and I wouldn't use it to mount a food blender to a worktop. Re-design by someone who knows what they are doing is required there. Remember:- always safety first.
  2. Erm, not quite. The shape of the scoop in the blades determines which way it is supposed to spin to do its job efficiently. That's why your fan is designed to pull air through the rad, not push as it is shown.
  3. How close to original are your engine and box mounts. If ok a shock absorber from engine top or bottom to chassis could help emmensly.

    Did last years Bucket and spoon run. August I think. Our small entry was organised by Al Milton. Thanks again Al. Unknown start at the moment taking a tour through Kent and ending in Ramsgate. 600+ vehicles last year. Proceeds to,charity. Nice Monty Carlo style plaque issued to all attendants. Mine is on the workshop door as a fond memory. Lovely day out.
  5. Pronounced "jimpy". There is possibly a date stamp somewhere, usually around the Wally Duncan stamp area. This could possibly help on finding the type of weapon it was issued with. I would think Lee Enfield or Browning era.
  6. The spoon was for feeding very small amounts of oil into the sliding parts grooves. They helped get the oil where it was needed without over lubricating.
  7. We used to have those in our gun kits filled with oil for our 4x2 wadding. Very early ones brass, newer ones 70s onwards probably earlier than that they changed to black plastic. The arrow is the mod crows foot known as the Wally Duncan stamp. As big as 18mm probably means they were for larger guns, i.e. .50" Browning etc. This is not absolutely 100'/, fact though but an educated guess.
  8. Nice project Jaimo. Should be plenary big enough, especially if you work tidily and clean up after jobs. About the ply board. Yes Florin got it right. However if there is plea to of damp about, use marine ply to stop it blowing. Happy new year mate.
  9. Blooming eco peter, where did you put the bed in the end.
  10. Thanks for your kind words in my other post Terry. Early 1980 something I smashed my right knee in several places. It was my right knee and like yourself I had lots of pins and even some windlassing to keep it all together. A couple of years ago I had to have a complete left knee replacement. I was in the army at the time so recouperation was Mage important. Three month of work, loads of physio put me back on light duties. 4 months all pins taken out 12 months back to four miles a day running after starting of with just a few yards walk and then a very slow and gentle hundred yards jogg
  11. Remove panels, remove current nuts and use stainless type. A good welder should be able to tack outer rim of nuts to chassis without getting weld protruding the original rim depth.
  12. If you cover it you will definitely need it venting. If no air flow from underneath it will definitely get damp and stay that way This also goes for complete car covers. Take them of on some dry days to air your cars soft furnishings.
  13. Good initiative Dan. No leaks with those.
  14. What size battery do you have amps wise. Small amp batteries can recharge very quickly. Check the voltage before you charge. Check your body earth and wiring to lights connections.
