A cartload of old iron and counting teeth


Most people would probably consider this a cartload of scrap iron, but to me this haul contains good stuff! 
There's a differential for the Austin pickup that I hope will improve motorway driving. Counting 43 and 11, teeth this one has a ratio of 3.9:1 while the current one on the car is probably the commercial version that has a ratio of around 5:1 

The hoard also came with an A60 gearbox and boxes of Churchill special tools for BMC vehicles. 

It all needs sorting, but there are pullers, reamers, gauging and measuring tools of different sizes. All very interesting.
