The fuel system consists of the fuel tank, carburetor and an electric fuel pump.
The petrol pump, an AutoPlus, works surprisingly good. after the renovation. We did not think that we could get a pump more than 80 years old started.
Finding a termostat housing that fits and at the same time fits the sensor to the temperature gauge was not easy. Finally we found a house that after some modifications could be used. The first picture is taken before the modification. The second image shows the modification for the temperature sensor.
Now the carriage has come back from Skövde, where it attracted a lot of attention. There were many people who took their time to study it closely. One comment among many were “Do not put the body on because then you cannot look at the interesting parts” and that is true, because with the body mounted you see very little of the fascinating mechanical design.
September 24 is the Garrison day in Skövde. The theme is The tank 100 years, and our 21-29a will be shown. Both chassis and body will be in place. To give the body a more “authentic” look, we have mounted the tower, and some hatches.
The hatches are not renovated yet which is why they have a deviant color.
In the chassis the complete power pack is installed. Which will give you an opportunity for detailed studies of 100 year old technology.
