Some more:







The cut is useful to fit our large triangle designed backing light. This one without its own light in it. Ok, you will know what I mean.

I'm done with this Sankey!

A last a special nut (one of two) ...



... to fasten the rear backing lights at the screw very down under. That's it!



And here we go!









Det (the owner) is very happy. He gave me a large bird, which is sitting now inside the oven to get suntannend crispy and spicy.

I found some drawings about the narrow track Sankey.

To whome it may consern:



































I would like to sell it at the end of my journey exploring the vanishing vista of the countries behind the big pond.

Saying in about four years.
Any interest will be welcome.

Kurt

Narrow Track, MY 68

I was asked to have an eye on this one.

Changed the leafsprings by replacement parts out of my fundus.
3 of the bolts had to exchanged.















The linkage is worn and the forkends too. Because of no lubrication.





And this one has to be exchanged too.



Inside the hub:



Hardened lubrication and a broken securing ring!



Rollers started pitting. Next time the bearings should be exchanged!
Both of the sealings are looking pretty good!







Replaced the securing washer by this one:



It has to be installed upside down because the hup cap's space is to small for that.





Next point of interest is the adjusting part and the mechanical cylinder of the brake.

The adjuster needed some grease. I use a mixture of water resistent boat grease and cupper paste.





The brake cylinder had been fixed to the brake plate! It wasn't able to move. Some hard stuff was inside the oval bore.
Removed it. Looks better now.



Cleaned parts of the brake cylinder.



The cone lost some material! So the pistons doesn't come out to the normal length.



Don't have any replacement for that, so it was a good job to weld some stuff on and form the old style cone back in a lathe.
Angle for the upper slide is less than 7.







Looks ok now and the pistons are moving their full stroke.

Thanks to the Evil!

When assembling the brake cylinder use the force of the double coiled washers only!
Never tight the nuts to their fixing points!
The cylinder has to be able to move up and downwards the brake plate!





Well, the grommet has seen better days but full filled with grease he will do his very best. I'm hopefully sure.



With the brake shoes on and the drum reinstalled ...



... just use a 7/16" spanner to adjust the brake.



Left hand side hub and brake:

Looking like a nightmare. Old grease, splitted securing washer without any tooth, on the other hand too much tightened nuts to secure them to get off the axle.
The tapered rollers were rolling very hard.
Just like surfin' a skiffel board!
But they seamed to be ok, so far.





But all these parts came apart without any complication!

Everything went right with the left hand side!



Just some cleaning and fresh grease.



The brake links had been bend too.





The axle of the brake diff doesn't move:





All of these nuts have to be tightened while a free movement of the parts is possible!









They should be moved by a finger tip or gravaty; the only resistand will be the grease inside.

Handbrake axle was corroded as well. The small workshop press was on duty second time. I like this tiny little helper very much!







He's a good one until for the next lubrication, I guess.







He's a brave one!



I'm sure.
