Hi again.

Apology, this is not a 'trick' question, I am though very interested to see the source upon which you based the shape of this bracket part.
I have not seen anything like it before, so am keen to broaden my learning on Tiger.

Love the work you do on these engines.

Kind regards, Simon.

Hi.

I think the water heater bracket is not quite right. Look at Jentz books for a drawing of this arrangement.

Unless you have some different information.

Hi Simon, I'm sorry but I do not read the forum often.
I do not understand what piece you are talking about, what is photo 10/11?

Hi.

I refer to the bracket for the cold start water heater unit.

In extreme cold the engine was heated before starting and you show the unit plus the fixing bracket.

I believe the fixing bracket is not quite accurate, but am open to opinions showing photos of the actual unit.

Jentz and Doyle show this fixing.

By the way, I love your work on these engines.

Regards, Simon.

Hi Simon,
surely you're right, I only have this picture and these drawings,
I tried to interpret them in the best way.
If you have photos I would like to see them. Thank you!

Hi Ivano.

Love your work on these engines.

It seems to me the photos and the drawings [ by others ] are not in agreement.

I asked the original question because I found a bracket for sale that was said to be from T1. This bracket was the closest I could find, but, it is not exactly the same as the photos, but is close to the diagrams.

Very confusing, but I obviously go with the photos, not drawings produced by individuals.

Keep up you work, it is inspiring.

Regards, Simon.
