Short update, since the last post do a lot of work of this (small) parts.
Takes a lot of time but by this way it starts to look a carrier again.
Cheers
Marcel

Gearbox and differential almost finished.
Now started with the bottom of the hull.
I received from Simon Delaney a package
with parts as the ventilator boxes and
steps, adjustment parts for the tools at
the rear side.
Cheers
Marcel.

I have rebuilt several of those assemblies over the years by simply cleaning them up and installing new ball bearings. They all turned out like new.

After a busy period with my work i had pick up my project today.
At first today i turn over the hull on the other side to take away the last broken rivets.
Earlier this week i had pick up some parts likes a front seat,front mudguard and a ice crabber.
Can someone help me with a good/close up photo how the ice crabber mounted at the lower hull?

Cheers
Marcel

Marcel, do I see portions of a MK-II commander seat with non-original support arms attached?

The ice scraper blade mounts on a specific block, the block is bolted to the lower hull in a semi-permanent fashion. Those ice scraper blades are specifically for winter use, not to be used on turf. They may remove soil off the hub exterior and force it into the hub interior. When the ‘F’ series sprockets were introduced, the first pattern ice scraper blades had to be modified to fit. Usually they can be observed with flame cutting modifications. The 1944 dated blades can be identified in factory production with the necessary changes.

The image you posted shows an early ice scraper blade. Your other images show you do not have ‘F’ series sprockets.

A good place for the ice scraper blades? Left in the stowage bin. That may help you finishing your day with the same number of fingers your started the day with.

Michael , thanks for this information about the ice scraper.
The scraper brackets are on the hull of my carrier but i didn't have some blades for this brackets.
I will keep this blades storage at the box so i will keep my fingers.(always easy to order 5 beer with showing one hand with 5 fingers).

About the commander seat ,i was thinking it belongs to a MK2 but otherwise can it be possible that this kind of seat were use at the latest MK1 carrier?
Yes i found out it had some piece what not belongs to this seat.

Cheers Marcel.
