Default Familiar ?

That carrier seems familiar ?

Did it appear many years ago in Wheels & Tracks Magazine along with a CMP or something - both in a park for kids to play on.

It would take me weeks to find the original pics in W&T !

Cheers and thanks for the pic

Phill

Default We are known as rivet counters on this forum

Have a look at the engine side of Greg and Chris McDell's British carrier in the attached photo, and compare the differences between the two, with respect to the way the armour plate is let into the corners of the div. plate, and how the air duct is located.
