A lot of hard work carried out over the past 3 months, the engine ( Flatnose Oxford ) I fitted at the beginning of the rebuild was the one my Dad bought as a replacement for the original ( Bullnose Oxford ) engine. The Flatnose engine has now been removed, it will be checked over and put away for the future, the recently rebuilt Bullnose engine ( original engine ) has now been fitted to the car, with the gearbox which has been checked over and a new clutch fitted. I expect to have the car back on the road for testing in the next 2 to 3 weeks.
Please see attached photos, the gearbox picture shows the main drive, ( top opening ) method connecting the flywheel to the clutch, using springs, collets and retaining pins, their are 6 of these and it's very difficult to compress the springs to fit the collets & pin, in turn, the clutch is retained / attached to the 1st motion shaft of the gearbox, a bit complicated to explain, but this was 90 year ago design.
