Cosmetics on my 130CC

It's not pure fun to open or close the back of the canvas cover.
So I decided to install a hard sided lid.













And found a place to keep some tools out of the way.

And have some nice parts up in in the sky.

Kurt,
Outstanding. Work I hadn't previously seen.
In form of introduction to the forum Kurt is a very accomplished German machinist/engineer and has a thing for 130's and Sankeys. I think he has 3 sankeys (?)of widely different custom configurations, functionality.
These are some old pictures because he has completely reconfigured this 130.

Thanks Doug!
You're right. I have had 3 Sankeys. One of them was sold 2 years ago.
Only two of them are on my duty.

Btw, did you realize the pretty bear?

Tub swap

Towing a Sankey with a 130 leads to problems while hook it in and out because the original tub has a long overhang and the Nato clutch cannot be opened fully up.
Only way to get the draught eye hooked in is to turn the hitch upside down and lift the eye from underneath, close the locking bar and turn it back. This will only work with fully turnable draught eyes! Some of the NTs have fixed eyes fitted! WT eyes both Bradley and Sacol overrun units are fixed at any time.
This is a pita!



Best option for me was to shorten the tub.

Fully open lid and rear door is possible then. And the trailer can be hooked on likewise for the older of us!







I started the bodywork on the frame of a wide track Sankey. Using a rear body of a damaged 110.























Time to change the source.









Just to imagine the remaining history of the rear.









Little helper to handle the inner threads right in place ...



... at this position.













More details:













Lot of more parts are to be done ...



All riveted by hand!



Time to have a white wine!



tbc.

Rear door made from an original one. Just cut in half.













Connecting the front of the new tub to the rear crew cab crossmember.









Another time fitting both parts.



Rear part of the Lord of Darkness' compartment.







More space for an additional veggy oil tank.

It's fun to see the tank level rising up while driving.
I pump the veggy oil out of the blue container into the black secondary tank.

My rear fixing point for the conoe (19 foot) went bye bye.
Need some supporting thing.



We call this a pendulum support. Don't know if it's the right translation. My Pons doesn't know it either.



But it works.



Brackets to the sides:











Case fastener:





Fastener rail for poor people:





Lots of them are needed!



This was the idea behind the work:







Upper rail:





I like diamond plates!

How to change the drop arm ball joint the easy way

Guess you will know the problem:
After the grommet got worn, the ball joint felt unlubricated and the play started to get bigger.

The replacement kit is cheep but normaly needs to take the drop arm off.
This is sometimes very tricky.
Normaly impossible.

I invented a tool to replace the joint while the drop arm is still mounted to the steering box.


Here it is.







How to use it:

These parts are to be reinstalled













































Replacement time is about 15 minutes.

Mayby in five years, when I retire? Time will tell.

Transmission Adopter

Got a damaged transmission box the other day.
And some time to figure out a new adopter to fix it for a box lifter.





















Just the parts:







Centering scews



The centering screws are nice little helpers while sliding the box off or on!





And it works very well!







Replacing the O-ring with the axle inside.



Replacing the seals with a handcrafted tool.
