To make it possible to install and test the drive train, we have mounted heavy plates which hold the brackets to the motor frame in the chassis. When the drive train is in place, we will have full visual overview of it and we can test it.safely.
The bracket, which holds the steering gear and the power line, is mounted in the body. Therefore we need to mount some steel plates to be able to mount the brackets in the right place. The steering gear is mounted and when the motor is mounted we are able to make a test drive the complete power line.
The fighting compartment of the 21-29 was painted white, except the inside of the doors which were grey in order not to be that visible when they were open. Here is a little comparison between what it looked like before we started the renovation and now after that the inside has been painted.
There is a lot left to do, but we begin to imagine the end.
The outer bearings on the drive shafts are mounted. As soon hoods for the cooling fans are mounted on the radiator, the hoses can be fixed and we can fill the radiator with water.
Then it is time to start the engine. The picture quality is not the best but the sound is magnificent.
What a fantastic end of the year.
