Early Engine

Sunday, 12 March 2017

Early EngineDear Sir, I'm wondering if your readers can identify this engine. It appears 1900-'06. Overhead atmospheric inlet and side mechanical exhaust. It was made in England as the nuts holding the block to the crankcase are 1/2 inch Whitworth, which is different pitch to US 1/2 inch UNC. There is no makers name, only some numbers on the crankcase, it would be about 6hp at the most. The external flywheel is tapered inside to take a cone clutch. Regards John Stokes

Mystery 15" Brake Drum and BackplateI would like to know if anyone can identify these large 15" diameter brakes.

The only identifying mark on the backplate is "PATENT No 181800/21.

The 8 stud pattern on the drum seems unusual as it is not symmetrical.

Mystery Chassis in Adelaide, AustraliaHello,

I was wondering if anybody might be able to identify this chassis. The double dip at the rear is very distinctive and a little like a 30's Hudson but doesn't have that vehicles X-bracing.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated as so far it has drawn a complete blank.

Origin of the axes

Sunday, 05 March 2017

Origin of the axesDear sirs,
enclosed we send you some pictures of two axes, we `ve found nearby at a farm.After ww2 they were used at a horse-drawn vehicle.Thats why there were modified (shorter and without diff.)
We have no idea about its origin ( Autobrand/year) but we are very interested in its history! Thereis no sign or number at the parts.The tires size: 19``.
We asked at several historic-car-museums and some enthusiasts, but they all have no idea, but could be an american car of the early 20ies.

Has somebody here an idea and further information?
Thanks for the support, Arnold Beyer, Vogt/Germany
