Ex Oxidised

By jonwebber
A detail from the "Walking Axle" on a Scammel wagon. Proper engineering, I have never seen the oil filler cap with the engraving aligned in any other way, on a proper restoration as this is, or an unrestored original. Also, a vague memory only, but I think the threads were handed, one side of the vehicle to the other, so filler caps could not be exchanged and be fitted with the text upside down, a most heinous sin . . .

This is the sort of information that men clog their brains with while women concentrate on the things that matter. Discuss...
Neat study in colour and lines, very neatly cropped.

I understood every word!
Never a good idea to get one's threads crossed (been there, done that, etc, though not with a Scammell).
First-class detail and a good angle.
