Re: base plate retaining screw

Although I thought the retaining bolt was 5/16 Cycle thread (26 tpi, 60 degrees).


I have just been out to have another look. I think you may be correct.
55 degrees is close but not quite right. I don't have a 60 degree 26tpi guage to check.
I will amend the other thread.

Re: FV 8416

Some new head casting would be great, but I do not know if the cost and the actual quantity required would make it viable. I would certainly like one. How much are people willing to pay? There is no point in looking into it if you think it is only worth $50..... I can see the cost being more like $...

Re: FV 8416

Same method as the Century one Nudge, with different hole centers.

Yes.... I know how it is done, but do others? and do they have the tools / equipment to do the job!

Re: Tank threads

I think the cap neck is soft soldered in and the tank ends are silver soldered. The tank I took apart took loads of heat... I think that's why some people cut the ends off. How big is the torch that your using?
