Just a note to further add. The engine in the Lynx chassis does sit offset to the center line, to line up with the transfer case input shaft, That is why the crank hole will be off set in the radiator core , as the radiator itself sits evenly in the chassis, Cheers Andrew.

In Italy the guys from SPA in San Marino are restoring a LYNX II.

It seems that they found a radiator for there project but is missing the crank hole. I assume that this is a standard flathead radiator?

All the photos of there project you can seen on FB: https://www.facebook.com/SPAMilitare...13339722015624

I don't know if you can call it a "standard " flathead radiator as there are many different versions. the CMP range is quite different, the bus versions of that vintage are similar , but header tanks are different, as I said the most identical one I have seen that is almost the same is from the larger rear engine chassis' that were built. Cheers Andrew.

I asked them today and it is a original Lynx radiator that was refurbished.

Default Dingo

Guys,

Thought that I would share this picture that I received from a friend. While not about Lynxes, it does show 1919 Brownings mounted on Dingoes in service with my regiment of interest, the RCDs. While I now have many pictures of Lynxes with pintle mounted Brownings, I wonder at how "official" these upgrades actually were.

Default M1919 Brownings on For Lynx

It seems that it started with a field modification by the Manitoba Dragoons and was subject to a study for usefulness by the military later on.
I do not have the AFV Report No. 7, so donít know what the official outcome was.

Interesting set of photos.
What is the pipe brace fitted into the sand channel bracket for? With that there they would not be able to use the sand channel brackets as originally intended.
I have highlighted the piece in question as there is no sign of something like that on my Lynx.

Default We remember

Guys,

A friend of mine, Alex with Hagerty Insurance put this video together. I think it explains why we pursue our "hobby". Here is the link.

Default Aquino ready

Guys,

The Lynx started up after it's winter hiatus with the minimum of grumbling. Took her for a spin and she performed better than I did. Looking forward to the upcoming Aquino weekend show at the Oshawa Tank museum. First show of the year and looking forward to reconnecting with old friends.

Peter
