Hi Phil,
The beast is growing up, verry fast. 😨 looking verry nice. I have seen a little construction problem, at the front Brakes of the mudged. You can't fix 2 screws.... I show the problem and my solution later in my Building Blog...
Die you even see the problem Phil?

I need to get the engine and gearbox out the way so I have made a start, there's along ways to go yet! You build an engine then you cut 1/3 off the crank and sump.

I've fitted a 24v motor and reduction gearbox this is centered at the crankshaft this will then run the fan, water pump and generator

I've just found a photo of a four bladed famo fan so I'm happy now!

I'm not looking forward to making the headers although with a little poetic licence I should be able to hide more of the drive motors

Looks realy great Phil,
looking forward to see how many space you have after, installation from the speaker. Could you make me an engine dummy too?

The mudged problem... have a look at part nr.: CS0344. The back side is no matter. The front side, you but the screw into the hole, butt you can't fix the nut. I'll take a M4 and make a thread into. Bevore I fix the part CS0344 on the frame.

regards
Florian

Thanks Florian, your Famo is looking very nice indeed! Could you post a photo of the offending mud guard fixing please? This will help me and many others also :D, now I have started on the engine details it will be a while before I get to the body work again, so it's down to you now 8)

Regards Phil.

Hi Derek,
I want to make them working. How it goes is not my problem, unfortunatly I do'nt know how they look like.
In my SdKfz 251 are they working too, but they look diffrent.

I had a 1953 Morris minor with "flip up side cators" as Steve Coogen used to call them, basically it's an electro magnet that pulls on a simple cam that lifts the arm with a yellow illuminated marker on the end, I don't think I will install a pair on this build but it would be interesting to see one on florians build :D ….Phil.
