Have a friend that just rebuilt a TE 20 that his grandfather bought new. When he was sandblasting the transmission housing, it was made out of a different metal. It didn't rust and when he put heli-cores in housing it was very hard. Do you know what they used. It will be a story in Furrow later. His grandfather drove it as a car.

Magnesium alloy will burn with the brightness of the sun . Be careful of applying heat , once started nothing short of a dam full of water will put it out .

Richard L is correct.....And I bet Tony uses rustoleum clear coat???? These alloy parts need to be etched before painting, preferably sand blasted and then acid etch primed. ............Sam

Tisk tisk tisk. Sam? Richard??? Don't you go into Manchester now and then? For some good curry goat atleast? Magnesium Electron isn't a 'thing', it is a limited liability corporation. Making alu-min-eee-um alloys since well before the war. Magnesium is usually an additive to aluminum for certain applications... like Spitfires and Typhoons!!
Like Charles said, pure magnesium is a fire trap.. like a roadside flare- or a Junkers JU-88?? Non ferrous alloys were a new technology in the first world war. You need heaps of electricity to refine them. It was the cat's pajamas to forward looking inventors like Harry. Heck, a welding repair on an alloy in the eighties was quite a trick, not that I'd know, me being such a small child at that time...cough cough..
Anyway, they, MELtd- made the alloys that went into the Rolls Royce powered flying machines... no, not Harry's flying machine. Other stuff. An old friend's dad worked in the scrap yard business till it was almost empty, and he was ready to retire at the same time- dunno, late 70's at the earliest? They were outside of Liverpool. I guess the aircraft yards were in the swamps. Mag El LTD recycled the same alloys it once made into airplane parts into... un-named tractor arsends... and Carling Black Label beer cans???? A fine modern use for a fine old fighterplane!!

I can't imagine how Carling Black Label gets worked into so many tractor stories. I will bet that C B L is exactly why that 23C smokes so much.
Tony forgot which can he was suppose to be drinking and dumped the C B L into the fuel tank.

24 cylinder Typhoons is my guess. Just watched a you tube on them earlier this week. Melted down Spitfires and the 'aluminium' stuff in a Hurricane. And all the Luftwaffe inventory that crashed and burnt over England. I was told Landrovers were made from WW2 aluminum into the late sixties. Must have been a cool junkyard to walk around in.
I don't know about ALL 20's, but I have seen TO20's with Continentals- and aluminum transmissions. I intend to remove all the paint and clearcoat all the alloy parts on my TEA...
