Re: Chain

I've been talking to everyone I know who's got a skeletal bracket to find the details of their safety chandelier chains, the pitch of the chain seems to be 2.5 links per inch, which is the same as the safety chain on the bayonet fuel cap & the retaining chain on the locking pin that stops the mo...

Re: Locking latch

Well it seems there is no demand for any re-manufactured ones of these, so there's a job I don't have to do.

Re: Cadmium plating metal parts

During the war, drive shaft tubes were coated with Zinc finding an SD drive shaft tube with traces of Zinc remaining are a bit like rocking horse droppings. Most have been replaced by chrome plated ones. The parts illustrated that are now cadmium plated have replaced the nickel plated originals, whi...

Re: Cadmium plating metal parts

Re: A 40 Plus Mk2, my next project

I bought an SD that didn't have a spark, from a chap who'd tried every trick in the book to get it sparking apart from remove the flywheel as he didn't have a coolie hat puller tool, the most obvious sign I remember was filings in the top of the cylinder.
