Lawrence Veitch - 4th February 2017
1936 Petrol Dennis
I have not long bought a 1936 petrol Dennis but I don't know what model it is as near as I can tell from pictures is that it is an ace or A as it has the same engine side panels and the same bulges for the steering box and the dynamo. The difference is my cab bulkhead is straight along the bottom off the windscreen and doesn't drop away .I am looking for some information on the engine firing order, ignition timing and type of engine. The cylinder head is straight on one side and the other side has 4 rounded bits for the chambers. I think it might be 24.8 hp but don't know if there were any other petrol engines. Thanks for any help it is much needed and much appreciated.

Robert Kemp - 17th January 2017
Dennis front axle
From a dismantled farm trailer, an axle bearing the name Dennis. It is a front axle with track rod . It has no brakes so must be old. The wheels turn freely on their bearings and the wheel nuts look as though they will come undone with just a spanner. I have no further use for it and was going to scrap it but wondered if it may be of any use to any of your members? I attach some photographs.
