I was promised a new set of headlight glasses for my Bug, and last week I collected them.

At first I thought they were the right item, but on further research I'm not so sure. The flutes are horizontal (when in fitted position), so I think they may be early Bus units.

Can the experts guide me on this? And if so, would anyone like to trade them with Beetle units?

well i only know of one herald in all of delhi, and you can never be sure till it happens right? I want it and if i am getting it, ill take it, just that will i get it or not, you cant be sure till it happens. The part that i dont control makes me use "if" instead of "when"

Here is a strange tool that fellow BHPian Sudarshan showed me. It reads "Pacific Rim Tool", Made in England and Patent Pending etc.

Any idea what application it could have had?

The Pacific Rim tool was invented by a company called Ken Tools of US. Its application was in changing tyres mounted on Split Rims of those days.

A revolutionary tyre changing tool of the 20's. Not much info is available about this tool. Looking at the design i reckon it works on the cork screw principal. Insert the top part of the tripod looking device in the side of the tyre and the other two can be adjusted to fit the width. Turn the device and the arms widen and probably get the rim rotating even eventually getting the tyre off.

Similar tools were sold to the US Air force in a big way in WW-II. The B Bombers as they were called suffered delays as their tyres could not be changed immediately on landing as they underwent very high temperatures, many a time causing the tyre to almost fuse with the rims of these bombers due to the intense heat. The pacific tool co made similar tyre changing devises due to which it became very easy to change the hot tyres and separate the otherwise almost inseparable melted rubber from the rims.

Default Windshield glass for a Minor 1000

I am reiterating my request for a windscreen glass
for my Morris Minor 1000. Its a one piece curved
windscreen. Even a Baby Hindustan one piece
windscreen will do , as it is suitable.

This is a splecial tool for mounting tyres on rims.
This tool is used to mount tryes on rims wherein all the tyres sit on a strip of metal (including the spare tyre) and when theres a flat the whole tyre alongwith the metal strip are removed and replaced with another spare.

Such system was offered in quite afew BRIt as well as American cars of late 20s and early 30 s VINTAGE...LIKE in the 1927-30 4cylsOHV Chevys
