Sd.Kfz.223 4 Serie

The focus all week by the team was on the 4 Serie Sd.Kfz.223. This chassis, as discussed previously has been worked on by various owners since the end of WWII. These changes all have to be reversed. The most significant of these this week was the brake pedal linkage. This had been modified (shortened) and had to be rectified. The front 2 wheel stations continue to require serious focus. These are missing a kingpin on the one side which is being made, all the nuts and bolts on both drive hub cases. A spring is short and a number of washers.

We are awaiting the bearings for the gearbox before we can start the process of reassembling. The casings have yet to be cleaned and painted.

The wheel station components and the brake line clamps (which need folding) are in the main image.

The front springs and back plates have been painted post blasting.
