Plus, the wide spacing of two torn through holes said to me that it was from up there too. But once safely photographed, it was great to unleash the tinSmith and see it unfold for the confirmation! :lol:

You could join the fun by surmising it's from the left-hand sponson top immediately below the front spar and is part of the closing plate for the cutout that allows the fairing to load over the spar - and be correct...

If I were to do that, I'd probably include that I'd drawn that conclusion from the line of captive fasteners, the fabric gasket and the direction in which the two large holes have been pulled. :D

With my unparalleled ability to put both size elevens in my mouth at the same time, I thought I'd better check before running the risk of ruining any "And it goes here..." moment. :lol:

Mike,
I have a horrible feeling a search for the missing nose bit will a waste of time, I heard rumours back in the late 1970's someone had 'recovered' it and was intent on obtaining other bits as well. I was hoping it was wrong and that Bill had it. Obviously as you are saying you do not have it then??? could the rumour be true.

Just trying to work out the current pic of the day and the above comment Mike.

Which side of K7 does the steering linkage run down? From you comment about turning the wheel and seeing things move and then looking at the picture it would appear the linkage is running down the right/starboard side? The rudder is on the left/port side? :?

Its been a long hard day and im sure I will look again to morrow an see things different :D

The steering actually runs down the left. A push-pull linkage operates from the steering box drop link to a horizontal pivot on the floor that reverses the action of the steering box then operates a long rod that passes through a series of bearings all the way to the rudder. Simple enough in principle but damn difficult to package in the space between the frame and the outer skin up at the pointy end.

I'm sure we mentioned that it's a Renault water pump we used - perhaps we weren't clear enough about that.

Joking aside, thanks for the encouragement, it's always appreciated.
