These don't grow on trees, very difficult to find a complete one & not cheap.

Can someone post pics of all of the parts including the correct engine support lug & the locking pin.

There is an engine on eBay currently with one fitted, hard to find part, so buy the whole engine, get the part you want and also get a nice early post war 102 8)
I did that once just to get the throttle lever :shock:

Bear in mind that your asking for a " SD skeletal mounting bracket" I've seen no evidence that the skeletal bracket was manufactured before 1946, so unless Dr. Who delivered this style of bracket with his time machine it's unlikely it was originally fitted to an SD.

This is Hugo's area of research so I'd better shut up & let him comment.

Skeletal first appeared on the C and D. There is the 'Dutch' brass bracket, date and origin unknown and the SD side mount bracket for WW2 pontoons. Skeletal may have been included in sales from post war surplus retailers. Plenty of the side mount drive shaft fixture fittings left on SD's but only about 5 original brackets are known. I wouldn't sweat on getting a skeletal. Some say bent over thumbscrews are SD but.....

Side mount ex army brackets are the correct SD bracket. Skeletal is the next one that came along briefly. I've thought about making a replica side mount at some point.
