Many members will know that Andy Burnett has amassed an impressive collection of Traction parts over many years, including a lot of Slough items. Andy is now having a (another) clearout and sent me his list. He is listing the parts in the classified section of F-P but I thought I would post his list here as well.
The parts are listed in groups which relate to where they are located Chez Burnett – they are not grouped according to what they are. So if you are looking for something specific you will have to search the whole list. Contact Andy if you are interested in anything – email: email@example.com.

ANDY’S NEW LIST OF TRACTION SPARE PARTS AVAILABLE SEPTEMBER 2023
3 MAJOR ITEMS FIRST!
3 speed traction gearbox, rebuilt by the maestro himself, Roger Williams (SCD) of Beverley.
This gearbox was in first class condition and took it to him to have the new 10×31 crown wheel and
pinion fitted and set. However, much to my surprise (and some annoyance) he bucketed every
bearing, replaced all with new bearings and even new synchromesh cones! Al this cost a small
fortune, but the end result once I fitted it was well worth, -quiet, fast and powerful, absolutely great.
I ran this gearbox for about 1500 miles, really to prove it before taking Roger’s advice and fitted the
4-speed converted D gearbox which is still in the car. It is a really good box, simply great!
4 SPEED D GEARBOX CONVERTED FOR USE IN A TRACTION
THIs gearbox again was converted and rebuilt by the same Roger Williams and was the spare for my
own if ever needed. It has never been fitted or run and is now for sale.
D ENGINE FOR FITTING TO A TRACTION! These engines have the great advantage over the perfo one
in that it has shell bearings at both big-ends and at main bearings which of course have much tighter
clearances and longevity and much cheaper to repair or overhaul if necessary. It was fitted with new
pistons and liners, new shell bearings throughout, new oil pump etc. and no cylinder head
meantime, but can be fitted with either a perfo head, of better still, an 11D head. Of course the alloy
original D head can be fitted but very few would want the hassle and inconvenience of that! It too
has been run for about a thousand miles and is now for sale!
