Post Re: Cloverleaf 1925
ther job, repairing the broken headlamps. I bought them for 5 euros from a farmer in france who had them on his tractor. One had a broken aluminum frame that was welded by a friend. But it took a lot of filing an grinding to make the edges smooth again so the reflectors will fit in again. Also the internal cables were broken that i had to repair. The worst one is ready now to receive the reflector. On the second one the hinge pin was half broken so the lamp didn't close very well. I drilled it out and now i have to make some new pins on the lathe. The reflectors were both dented, i tried to remove a much of the dents as possible without damaging he reflective side. They are waiting to be repainted from the back. Not even mentioning the cleaning and polishing of the oxydized aluminum parts.
Next problem find the special matching Marchal bulbs for it.
