Hi Phil,
Have heard similar stories about the same prolm but it also sounds as of it depends on what postal service is being used. Apparently UPS are still sending but another one of similar name USPS (I think) are not playing the game.
Hope it works out for you sooner rather than later. It certainly is a strange situation as it is unlikely they are being air freighted unless that service was paid for.
Good luck, John

Thanks John. I had a pair of pistons ,rings etc.etc. already paid for and packaged up in the UStates only to find out that the USpostal service was no longer sending mail and packages to Australia and NZ as well as 28 other countries due to the covid situation and not being able to cope with the extra service. BUUUUUUUUmmer. So now I start all over again.    Regards Phil

Tractors / David Brown Work Light
« Last post by cobbadog on 19 October, 2021, 02:42:04 pm »
Had this lovely original D.B. work light arrive home today courtesy of wee-allis. A huge thanks for thinking of me and for sending it on.
As you can see I have wasted no time in stripping it down this far. For the age of this light it has very few issues and these can be fixed with a bit of TLC. The small rust hole now has a mate to it on the opposite side and in both cases caused by the way the handle is riveted to the base. Some patches and welding comming up soon. The glass lense is in fantastic condition and will get a good clean up when its time to put it together again. The switch is stuck at the moment but Lanox is doing its job for now and hopefully will free it up otherwise a new switch will be fitted. I have straightened out the handle to be closer to the original shape and all the nuts and bolts are in good shape as well. There is a small clip missing from the top of the light assembly where the screw head fits into and holds the lense assembly in place. I will make another one of these and I think I even have a template I can use from other lights of similar style.
A very happy tractor bloke here with yet another accessory for the toy. Thank you again wee-allis.

It would be easiest if you replace the complete point assembly with a clockwise set of points. An FF1 is a German Bosch, so most Bosch point assemblies should fit, except the DA and the very early point sets. But, anything from just before WW1 onwards will work.

At a rough guess it was used to take over on a windmill on still days. Just maybe.

I have got this magneto and it should be clockwise rotation but it has been changed to anticlockwise. Is it difficult to change back. Rudy
