    Wheelhorse Rear Bracket

    Another good job, but how did you drill those square holes?

    Hayter 21 axle

    Thanks Richard - this will make another useful addition to my 'library'

    Hayter 21 axle

    Thanks Wristpin. I was sure until I saw your reply. Following your post I have looked again at the Spare Parts Book again and can see that the nearest key (4295) to the Backplate is intended for the small sprocket and that key 1662 is the one for the backplate. I'll have to look more closely next time! Thank you Richard for looking through your stock and for the helpful Chart. I ordered a couple of keys from the Link you gave me and immediately after received Wristpin's reply highlighting the fact that I had incorrectly read the Spare Parts Book. At least if you ever need a key I may be able to help you from the two I have ordered.

    Vintage Oil Can

    Another excellent restoration! Not only are there few people now who could make a quality item, there are even fewer who could repair one!

    Hayter 21 axle

    Hi Richard, You always seem to be helping me out and I hope I can reciprocate one day! I have endeavoured to measure the keyway and the measurements would seem to be: length 600 thou and width155 thou although the slot in the Backplate seems to be more like 165 thou Regards Ray
  6. Does anyone have or know where to get a key for holding the clutch back plate on the axle? It appears to be a half moon shape and is part number 4295. The key was missing from my 21 and from the part Osprey which I keep for spares. Any help would be much appreciated.

    international historical festival panningen

    Really interesting photos. I've never seen many of the different makes and models before!
  8. The 46th annual Show returns to South Cerney Airfield Cirencester from August 3rd to 5th. The Show is regarded as one of the biggest and best steam, vintage and countryside events in the UK. Set in the former wartime airfield the sprawling show site covers around 2oo acres . This year the Show features nearly 1,000 classic cars from pre and post-war eras including more than 70 classic American cars, 30 vintage car clubs, 335 motorcycles and scooters, 80 bicycles from 1903 to 1980, 30 miniature steam engines, 70 full-size steam engines, model engineering, 200 tractors, over 70 buses and coaches, 130 military vehicles, 315 emergency and commercial vehicles, 70 industrial trucks, 50 vintage caravans, over 50 model aircraft taking to the sky above, 180 trade stands and loads more livestock and show arenas etc..
  9. Thanks Wristpin - I have checked the axle and bush again on the Hayter 21 and there is 36 thou between the exterior radius of the axle and the inside diameter of the bush. Do you know what the correct difference should be? The part number for the O ring is very helpful and I am trying to order one. I will try to adhere to your list of essentials and look forward to being dragged along as I had to physically help the mower along last week for 3 hours to get a job done (before the inevitable prolonged rains appear!). I have looked again at the Osprey chain and it looks like you were right Richard. I could not see a split retaining cotter using a light and mirror so I hacksawed through the half link, but looking closer at the back of there does appear to be provision for one although nothing came off (or I did not see it if it did!) when I removed the chain which is indeed 1/2"". There was no O ring on either the 21 or the Osprey so I am trying to order one.
  10. Hi again Richard, I tried to message you but the System would not let me add photos so I have put them here. This is the chain on my Osprey axle.

    I wondered why...

    Its not very often you can say the earth shook when you're retired!
  12. Thank you all once again - I would be lost without your help and advice! I had forgotten I do have an axle from an old Osprey and will have a look at it in the faint hope that any of the parts are usable. I can see the removeable link now that Richard has pointed it out - the Sun must have been in my eyes when I took the photo!
  13. Having spent some time getting the engine to start easily, I found that I had poor drive to the wheels and suspected the clutch needed adjusting as the 'wheel drive belt' seemed OK. I removed the wheel, hub and chainguard and after removing the Hub (photo2) I found what appeared to be two worn grinder disks (photo 1) which are not shown in the Spare Parts Book. I am wondering if these should be there or whether they are the result of a 'cowboy fix' in the past. I addition the Drive Chain is filthy and I need to remove it and clean it but cannot see a revvable link or how otherwise to remove and refit it. Any help would be most appreciated.

    New use for old Kitchen Unit

    Excellent work as usual Richard. Its made me think what I can use my similar sliding lid winebox for!
  15. The screw arrived and is fitted. I did try to measure the thread, without success and then saw the accompanying note.
