Does any recognise these studs and nuts. They are extremely well made 1 3/16" (30mm) overall length; 11/16" (18mm) at long end and 5/16" (9mm) at short. They are 7/16" diam at 22tpi. This makes them UNF according to my reckoning, but the deep nuts are for 7/16 BSF spanner size. They may have hub or brake drum retaining application? Lagonda? Bentley?
Any help appreciated!

Author: Catherine Evans Friday, 06 June 2014I have been guided to your webiste via the Aviation forum, with regards to this 1913 postcard photograph of pioneer aviator Gustav Hamel, and in trying to identify the make and model of the car he is driving in it.
Photograph was taken summer of 1913 at Hendon Aerodrome. Does anyone know what kind of car this is, please?

I have attached pics of a rear axle that I have had for a while. I have been trying to find what it would have been fitted to? I am sure that its from around the 1920s era. Not a lot of info to go on and I wonder if you could help ?
As you will see from the photo it has a top mounted worm drive diff, top mounted leaf spring brackets, cute rear mounted oil filler with swing lid, 9 inch brake drums with 2 sets of shoes each side and the cam levers mounted at the front. It also has 5 wheel studs and would have had artillery wheels fitted but they are badly corroded. There is very little in the way of identification as the screw on hub/bearing caps are missing. The worm gear has a "DBS" in a circle mark which I think is the patent stamp of David Brown & Son that would have made the diff, but who would they have made it for ? The only other name I have found is one on the brass diff drain plug that is stamped with "Showells Strichley". A West Midlands company that made all things brass until mid 1900,s but I cannot find a link to a vehicle maker.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
