Hi Roy,

Looks to have some similarities with the Victoria KR series OHV engines? - not sure which one tho' (later than KR3 ??) and would have to investigate further.

Heads on wrong ends? i.e. exhaust should be on flywheel side? Not sure but it doesn't look correct.

EDIT:- Here is KR 6 for comparison;

Douglas Motorcycles and Parts Wanted / Wanted 2 3/4hp rear brake pedal
« Last post by DJS on 01 Dec 2020 at 14:51  »
Iím looking for the rear brake pedal and ideally the operating rod too for my 1924 SW/24 2 3/4 hp.
This is one of the last of the belt drive models so I imagine that brake pedals from earlier machines may well fit.
Tel 07773 589104 or PM me.

Thanks in anticipation.

Yes I agree but it has not been helped by being centrally drilled I was wondering whether that drilling was a modification by the factory for some models and why it was done considering there was a long hole from both ends with out meeting in the middle

That spindle has fractured immediately below the nut, so I would think it has probably been over-tightened (maybe in order to fit the split pin). In the past, I have skimmed the base of the slotted nut in order to fit the pin whilst getting a reasonable torque on the nut.

Regards,
                Eddie.

Also if you look on page 149 of Douglas The Complete Story there is a photo ODF 665 ridden by test rider Ted Breffit outside Eddie Withers showrooms in Norwood, South London.
