This appears to be much more substantial than say an Austin 7.
You probably need to be on a vintage car forum ?
It will doubtless leap out at someone there....
Good luck, tell us how it goes.

It may also be helpful to pop off the cover over the wheel bearings,
and study what thread is retaining it.
If its british or metric or maybe even unfied etc (american) will give you some guidance as to its origins.

British Bikes / Help with identifying a part, REX?
« Last post by Simon Anderson on April 18, 2018, 01:40:02 PM »
Hello from Australia
 
G'day,
I have a front axle off some vehicle that myself and others are stumped on what its off. If you know anyone or have any ideas on what it could possibly be off it would be great to know as well as any other information.
 
It apears to have front brakes (band brake) which are 7 inch in diameter and 1 inch wide which are threaded onto a 40 spoke dual ball bearing hub.
 
That basic dimension of the assembly are 40 inches from hub center to center.
What is interesting is that the main axle has, what seams to be a tube chassis that attached directly to the axle.
Another interesting area is where the spring or frame area may have attached to the axle, the spring or frame would be now wider then 1-1/2", I am thinking more that a woooden beam/frame was mounted to this area as it has many small little grippers in this area.
 
what appears to be a chassis connection are two main tubes in 1" diameter and two smaller 1/2" tubes on a approximately 10-15 degree angle from the main 1" tube, all these have been just cut off from the cut angles. (Galvanised rod in pictures is to show where the 1/2" rod was and angle)
i am thinking some thing like a tri car, cyclecar or quadcar. REX, Rexette, Phoenix, Riley, Lagonda.
i would like to try and make it back into what ever it is.
 
any thoughts?
 
Many thanks,
Simon

Yep, same thing happened to me yesterday morning. Tried to log in and got the same message. All O.K. later on in the day though. Most odd.

And then its been off and on for another day or so.

Is this some sort of hack, or.......  ?

I can’t comment on exhausts but why not use a small filter on the breather and terminate it under the battery somewhere. There are plenty of filters to choose from on EBay. I wouldn’t pipe it into the exhaust, though if you wanted you could possibly run it into the air filter somehow.

You're obviously in Melbourne, John, as are 33d6 and myself.
I have a couple of 500cc B&S engines, one of which is going.  If you're interested, drop me a line johnferguson@iinet.net.au

E.J.Massey left Massey Arran and went to F.J.Coopers where they produced the Massey. Early in 1924 he sold out to R.L.Jepson.  He was then briefly with H.R.D in late 1924 and early 1925
