Wings self-propelled chassis of the tractor DT-20. They had a good match in size. Yes, and many of them are relatively small. Attached wings eight bolts M10 (lugs on the longitudinal edges welded to the spars).
The wings have not only the role of mud flaps. They assume the mass of the rider, as they leans the seat back tube his teeth enters the nest, made of pipe cross-section of 25×20 mm. in addition, on the left wing located the fuse box and tool kit, and on the right is the air cleaner of the engine (from a motorcycle IZH-PS-350) and height adjustable arm with levers control the decompressor and fuel corrector.
The driver’s seat from the sidecar FDD slightly redesigned and reinforced. Can be adjusted vertically and horizontally, and recline on hinges forward, lying back on the steering wheel and giving free access to tank for refueling.
The fuel tank is also from FDD. Mounted under the seat on a special frame made out of pipes with a diameter of 27 mm. as the fuel tank level is below the float chamber of the carburetor, the fuel line entered Tickler pear from the boat motor “Breeze”.
Great attention is paid to the cleaning gas. On the label on fuel filler neck gas tank has a primary filter is a removable fine mesh. Further through the valve KP-12 filter mesh and sump gasoline for flexible rubber hoses is sequentially supplied to the transfer bag, then in the filter sump, fuel pump with its filters, and only then gets into the carb. It turned out difficult, but the operation justified it.
Frame fuel tank has four points of support: the bottom two (with rubber bushings) M10 bolted to the lugs of the driver’s platform, and the top two (also with rubber bushings) worn on the studs of the transverse arc of the frame self-propelled chassis.
The fuel tank is also recorded at four points (with rubber inserts): front — brackets welded to his frame, and the back — the same pins on the transverse arc. The abundance of rubber inserts to absorb noise and vibration generated by engine.
The engine is covered with a hood of sheet steel with a thickness of 1.8 mm, which is embedded behind the grille with the headlamp of a moped “Riga”. The hood opens forward and in this position is held by the backup. Closing, it falls on the two rubber cushions on the wings and “tacked on” two coil springs.
Ahead to the left under the body of the “Bull” has installed the headlight from the FDD, adjustable vertically and horizontally. Wiring is very simple. The control panel has a common switch and light switch “near — far” for the front lights, rear the same (remember: it was from a moped “Riga”) is only activated when reversing.
Truck body is welded from steel sheets with thickness of 1.8 mm and a banded area, 20×20 mm. For stiffness in the sides embossed vertical ridges, and on top put a kind of fence made of pipes with a diameter of 21 mm. Front wall hinged, fixed a hook on the end of the chain. Lowering the Board and secure it in the same plane with the bottom of the body will get an elongated platform for transportation of oversized cargo. To the left side attached bayonet spade, and to the right is the canister of fuel and a fire extinguisher. Under the body to the left and right are quite roomy, metal roof rack.
The body is attached in the following way. First to the frame using ladders and bolts screwed four cradle of boards and beams, pre-impregnated with hot linseed oil. And to them — the very body — the M8 bolts with round heads.
Take this description of the magazine, I thought that’s what. All Amateur constructors, starting the manufacture of its machines, based on the experience of predecessors. Maybe my achievements will be useful to someone.
