Re: SQ4 Mk1 rear wheel

The alloy one looks the same as the one on my Mk1. No spacer inside.

Re: smiths Speedo 1938

Hi Wade. Unfortunately, I cannot provide you with a good story. I quoted from the sales brochures. It's, for instance, in the 1939 brochure, which is in the document repository. On the page for each model the specifications are listed with the speedometer as one item. I think what they meant was th...

Re: 1954 Fieldmaster

I use double sided tape to stick this to the drum. Next, I assemble the brake plate on the axle, with the wheel on the bench. I have a hole...

Re: Petrol Tap Seepage

I had a look on the Draganfly site and see that the BAP tap they sell shows a locking nut. Is that the one you are using? Is it a parallel thread?
