Re: Engine L60 for Chieftain

Fantastic idea, whoever wants to further complete my engine, will be able to purchase additional details from you.

Re: New Leyland L 60 engine for Chitfain

Even more this year, there is little work and companies put employees on vacation.

Re: Engine L60 for Chieftain

Thanks for the many PMs and emails. DO NOT SEND MONEY! Sorry but maybe I didn't explain myself. The current booking is not binding, it does not bind the purchase! It only serves to be able to formulate the lowest possible price. Next week I will communicate to everyone who has booked the engine, how...

Other engine components have arrived.

Hi Keith,
what do you mean by the structure of the pieces?
Sorry, I don't understand, the translator doesn't help me.
Thank you!

Re: New Leyland L 60 engine for Chitfain

The motor in the photos is also available, if someone wants to put it on a table, there is no more space in my house. I am collecting reservations without obligation, the number of engines sold determines the final price. If you are interested or want more information about the kit, contact me by e-...

Re: New Leyland L 60 engine for Chitfain

The two panels that mimic the radiator grille must be cut to the correct size.
The flywheel is made of 3 pieces, if you need to decrease the thickness, just sandpaper is enough.

Re: New Leyland L 60 engine for Chitfain

The assembly is very simple, I have not given instructions because everything is very intuitive and the forum is full of photos. The most boring thing is to drill the bolt holes which are more than 200 but piercing the resin is very simple. To glue the 3D parts, I suggest using epoxy glue. However, ...

Re: New Leyland L 60 engine for Chitfain

I thank Mr. Dennis Jones, who sent me photos of the letters in relief on the coolant tanks and decals
Deliberately, the raised letters are slightly larger than the 1/6 scale, otherwise with one or two color passages you would have risked not seeing them. The decals are also excellent.

Re: New Leyland L 60 engine for Chitfain

Another increase in costs is due to the presence of over 200 bolts. You all know how much they cost and although I have purchased many for the various engines sold for years, I cannot get discounts from the supplier. I tried to make them already attached to the pieces, but the result is not excellen...

Re: New Leyland L 60 engine for Chitfain

Another goal was to make a product with relatively low costs. Clearly everything is debatable, but here in Italy I am not the one deciding the production costs. First of all there are some very large pieces (engine block, coolant tanks) which make the "master" very expensive because the cost is link...
