Burman Pen Pal Consultant Needed


Well Known and Active Website User

The Burman Gearbox is my last inspection/fix (I hope) before I bolt up my Comet. The box is now apart, and no big surprise, there are a few things that need attention.

Out there "In Forum Land," (sounds like a Wagner aria for heldentenor, eh?) is there anyone who is a Burman expert (BAP version) that can be my pen pal consultant until it's a completed project? I anticipate I will send a very few pics to help me describe stuff. It may be that I need no help at all, but I usually do and there are no local BAP Burman gurus to consult. Also, the drawings I have are the draftsman-like items and not nearly as easy to work with as the nice Vincent "exploded-view" sketches in the Spares List.

Ping me off line -

Is there a way you could post a larger file of this image. It looks to be very helpful to us Comet and Meteor abusers.
A download-able image would be better than the forum photo section (where gs feels that copyright is more important than fetishism...;>)

Yes, I think in this instance, an attachment of a high-resolution image on the forum part of the website is the best place to post this.

Len - if you have a nice quality one, but you can't upload it because it's too big, just let me know and I'll take care of it on your behalf.

I have what I think is a 'full size' copy (maybe it's 'of a copy') of the Burman Box details that Len has posted. If it's the same it was published by Soren Skoog of the Swedish Section. If he's willing, I could lend Graham my copy for him to scan and post on this site; I'm sure Graham's scanning kit is better than mine.

Graham, I could send it registered mail if you wish or, perhaps better, give it to one of the SoLonVin Section members on the Tech. Committee who'll be meeting here mid-November. The Club 'Post Office' is cheaper and more secure than the 'professionals'.

I dismantled my Burman box in November and am assembling it now. Is there any chance of obtaining a decent scan of the assembly drawiing that will print out in legible size? This thread seems to have ground to a halt.

Thanks in anticipation
