Stationary Engines / Found this
« Last post by cobbadog on 22 March, 2019, 02:58:27 pm »
Last weekend away I found this sitting out the front of a museum. IT is still there as I have no need for it but it took me a while to realise what make it was.
I found a picture of it in the window out front and they identified it.
It is odd that it breathes from the crankcase or bum like a frog and is possibly why these engines rarely run consistently or at all.
My last comment will create some feed back!

Thanks to all responders.
A club member suggested to make them, the same way as his father did when the Primus camping stove played up. Cut a strip of tin plate from a can and select a suitable bristle from a wire brush.  Assemble the two components as per the original pricker and problem solved. How simple is that?
In the mean time I will use the "Butterfly" brand supplied by T. W. Sands and Co. in packs of three.

Kept the ball rolling today and got the drop arm linkage to fit, then removed the steering box to have a look inside and clean it up but it wasn't too bad so I greased it up and put some never seize on the 4 thread screw so it went through the steering nut a bit better. Then not to be out done I attacked the 3 point linkage issue and got a result so it was a very fruitful day for me and David.
Thanks to all advise and replies to everyone.

A welding supplier should be able to help you out. Oxy Acetylene tip cleaner sets have a good range of sizes and  cheap to boot!

John, it's just because you cannot always rely on "After market" suppliers being as accurate in their manufacture as we would sometimes like. Anyway, you got it sorted and it managed to fill in a couple of hours.

Shifted the steering arm around on the spline at the top of the stub axle/king pin and now have proper toe-in adjustment. If I took it one more spline the inside mounting bracket welded to the rim would touch the nut of the ball joint so back one spline and all is good. Tomorrow I will adjust the steering arm from the pitman arm to the front axle linkage and all will be good. I also have to centre the steering box before adjustment is made.

Still amazes me you buy new parts and have issues like this, but that is part of the fun (?).

Als o try camping stores as they sell Primus lamps that occasionally need a "prick" to get them going again.

Thanks Patrick. I have had them from T. W. Sands and Co., and was wondering if there was another source to try.
Regards,
John.

Have a look at the chart. It lists both MF and Ford with the 11/16" thread size and different offsets. Oddly enough the only David Brown on the list shows a totally different thread size and must be for a later model only.
