Another "Rotax" fuse box

It's always the same. Something turns up, then something slightly better turns up, then...

The similarity between this much later fuse box and the Rotax one is remarkable. It's plastic, but it's the same colour as Bakelite. Once the white writing is polished off it will look great.

Things of beauty. One for me, one for another car.

"Rotax" Fuse box

I wouldn't have had a fuse box originally, but I need one that won't look out of place next to the Rotax Cutout box, so this is made from an old Lucas fusebox base, and a metal cover from something else to replace the curved plastic cover.

An even more complete Auto Klean

Another one - that's it, that's enough, stop buying them. This one is complete with casing - not exactly the right casing, but it's hidden under the car and can be adapted. It save the expensive job of making a casing from scratch.

This is a slightly later model as there's a ratchet just below the handle (at the bottom of the picture). This can be connected to the clutch pedal so that every time you change gear, the handle is automatically rotated a bit instead of doing it manually. This would have been on an early thirties Lagonda.


Perhaps not the greatest picture in the history of photography, but I'm a car so photography is hard for me !! The camshafts that came with me were from a supercharged car, mine were in the car that used to be supercharged. Neither were good enough for an engine rebuild.

Rear Axle back on

The rear axle back in place. Getting a bit dusty here and there. Time for spring binding...
