Just one axle, no engine and ist's from the island: something about Sankey trailers

Just beyond the bottom line:
It's called that the British Army had been called an Indian scrap dealer to get it all.
Including the spare parts!

Well, I really don't know about this.
But needed spare parts are not available.

Nevertheless, I like these trailers!
This is what you get:

Narrow track about 1968



a little bit corrosion here ...



... and there.



It'll take some hours to get it shiny!



Or something like that:

Wide track 1986
kitchen work was dismanteled. It wasn't ready to go bacause one of the wheels doesn't move.

Found this remaining ruin offered on ebay in 2007 for 200€ and bought it, dismanteled it, towed it by Sankey #I back from Cologne to Bremen...



But let's have a look step by step.

If you would like it?

Ok then, here we go:

At the end of all I got this German title



My first one was a 1968 narrow track Sankey. I just wanted one. Didn't know about the secrets about it, so I tried to dismantle my new buddy first.
Well, I cracked some bolts.
Got exausted about the waterproof electric lines...





... and the mechanical parts inside.







Amazing stuff!

This is good for another 100 years!









The tub is definately not made for this time!
It is original welded of steel but over the time totaly corroded to huge holes, several times rewelded and at the end of that bend at its bottom.

Don't liked it any more.

I cut the upper rail and the inner wheel housing out and welded it to an inner subframe.
All of this got zinc plated.



I just got a nice little helper!













Sold in 2011

Ten years after I thought about paint.





















I gues it was just in time!

My first Wide Track Sankey (MkII)

In 2007 I bought the complete frame of former kitchen unit. Used the narrow track to do the transport from Cologne to Bremen.





The plan was to put the tub from the 130 onto this frame.









Big surprise when downloading this peace of heavyness: it's way heavy!







Last year, when I restaurated another wide track for a good friend, I thought about of an unit to carry the frame and the possibility to turn it over and over again without thinking about the bad hurting back.
It's useful!

How I made it:









































I would like to say it's a must have!!!

To match a narrow track frame this adopter is necessary:

Another useful tool to handle the axle in a vice, on a box lifter or in a floor lifter. The axle is heavy to!

Troubleshooting if enything went wrong

Corroded bolts

They usualy brake.

Try to get a mixture of Acetone and ATF to the corroded parts before trying to get them loose!

It works very well. But it will take some time! And you should do it more than once!

Corroded bolts inside the shakles / springs

No way out. Take a saw!





Afterwards drive the bush out and use a lathe and coolant stuff!







I reame the bore to 16H7 to match a M16x1,5 bolt. Easy to get them in Europe!



The original thread 5/8"UNF is changed to M16x1,5 too.



The shortened inner bush needs a small distance. Shown up on the left side.

Why don't all floor jacks have an axle attachment like that? It makes so much sense!

Very Nice work.
Would like to see some clear more detailed pictures of your Sanky camp trailer sporting the roof top tent.

Please have a look at http://www.howlingmoon.co.za/shop/te...er-tent-olive/

I just created the distance between the frame of the Sankey and the bottum of the tent!

To support a straight axle it's an easy job to do.
Axles with a differential gear box inside will need a cranked supporting helper.
Thaught about this too. Easy to lift the vehicle at the front or rear by floor lifters.

But it's a smart difference betwenn lifting a 250 pound part to the whole vehicle.
So I didn't ponder on that.

Stoopid handbrake lever

Well, it shows upwards and it's a hindrance to a lid or the rear door.

Just crank it!
The narrow track needs to be cranked twice.







The wide track handbrake lever has enough distance to the overrun unit.
Just one cut is necessary!

Different types of handbrake assemblies

Narrow track unit



This is not the original version! The handbrake lever stands way straight up in the sky!

My cranked version







The main axle is closed at each end and holds a greasing nippel. This makes sence.

Mounted to the frame
