I found something unusual. I am pulling apart a 6 cyl. engine from a CV truck, late 1930's . Seen on the con rods near "MOWOG" are little swastika's 

Does anyone have any idea ? And no, I had not been drinking anything .

Will have a look at this, because some posters have been able to upload their photos, others not.

Having searched our previous posts, I found this thread, which could prove helpful :-

The pre war Morris 6 25hp is not a common engine these days.


Ain't that the truth!!

In answer to your other question - no, your photos are not uploading successfully. Will have a look at this, because some posters have been able to upload their photos, others not.

Regarding your proposed engine resto work - great stuff!! Sounds like real engineering, especially the bearing white metal work. We'll be interested to hear about your progress.

Are my pictures uploading OK ?

I am now making new valve guides for the motor, a lathe is one of those tools that you wish you had got years ago.  New valve guides are not available , I bought a length of cast iron and have made a new guide, 11 more to go .

Does anybody have experience with pouring white metal bearings ? The poured rod bearings in my engine need to be redone. I am planning on doing this job myself because the cost is minimized , just time and materials.

This is normally a very expensive job, paying a engine builder to do this work is out of the question for me.

Hi

I have been working on a 1940 CS8 army vehicle . The six cyl. OH engine has been stripped down for a rebuild.

I have new pistons, cast iron type. I will machine up new valve guides . I hope to remetal the conrod big ends myself. with babbit , a learning experience it will be .

I have new main bearings coming .. thanks Rory !
