Hi-ya Ron!

This was a distinctive document in that the part was to be disposed of, not returned to stores. For example, the removal of the Wireless NO. 11 set base that was factory installed on the MK-I* (Canadian) universal carrier was to be returned to stores.

Not perpetuated.

Thanks again Michael. It follows then that mine and Israel's MK2's would never have had them fitted. Ron

Israel, there is a cut out piece on the left side to allow for the left side bell crank. There are two strips welled to the bottom that are tapped so that the bolts coming up through the floor can screw into. (5/16" (8mm) thick and cross ways) There is also a fibre block that two spare spark plugs screw into.

Good question. I think the 11 set aerial base was still being installed on factory UC Mk.1's well into 1943. That said, I'm now not going to worry about fabricating that cover. I think it would make seating one's back end in the driver's seat that much harder.

Lynn Thanks for your Note. (I saw it after bending over the bins) This goes into the space of the rod by pressing the brake, but for more confidence during the week I will fix it and create a cut according to the photo you posted on MLU
Thanks , Israel

Default As of today what we did on our Bren

In addition we worked on the fuel tanks to weld some holes that are still in the tanks before installation.

yep, pure gold
however, good to be aware that the Israeli vehicle is a MK-I*, updated to British MK-II in the UK, so not a C31UCW NO-2 MK-II* that you have, Seb.

Surely noted.
I guess I wonít be able to copy the tool boxes then?

The steering rods and throttle rods are what I really was happy to see.
I couldnít clearly see in the drawings what some of the rusted remains I have left.
These pictures cleared many questions on what the rotted stubs I have left use to look like. Hahaha.

hey Seb, you are good with the same steering and throttle rods. Lynn has a separate control rods file available. MK-I* series have electric start, the C31UCW is mechanical.

Stowage bins are dissimilar between MK-I* and C31UCW. Some care will be needed when understanding the differences. Some part differences are quite subtle on BREN barrel, ration and engine spares bins.

Default Few more steps forward in Bren restoring

We have taken a few more steps forward in Bren restoring
Construction of the fuel tanks, painting and installation of the fuel tanks, including the accompanying parts.
Restoration of a front headlight, which was built according to the pictures in the book and in the pictures.

What remains is to connect the fuel pipes including the intake pipe with the internal filter of the tank.
