Powerpack in the making !

After seemingly much wasted time, we keep on working and thinking behind the walls !
Last week some components for our powerpack did arrive out of UK thanks to Robert Vandaele an d Vandaele Machinery out of Oostrozebeke who will put together the powerpack under the supervision of Robert, ex-ceo and father of the nowadays management.
Still waiting for the motor that will be an oldtimer : 6 cylinder 150hp Gardner ! Not the original Daimler but still a remarkable and reliable piece of old technology. Thanks to Robert who located it and who will set it up. Indeed Robert is playing a major role in this phase of our tankbuilding.
Some photographs will clarify the situation a bit :

radiator and reservoirs

hydraulic pump

Gardner motor as it is now
