Air circulation tubes to cool / release fumes from the brakes on either side of the hull.

Pipes from an electrical/paraffin(?) preheater? To warm the coolant for easier starting?

Not jealous of you working on a StuG like that at all, no...

Surprised by how small the engine/plant is when seen ready for removal. Looks a very easy piece to work on though. Please keep us posted with it's overhaul/service progress.

David your spot on we have information on two types one like you said the other is a transfer system ie they get one engine running to the correct engine temp then the warm coolant is transfered to a cold engine .

Nelz I will be back next weekend and will take some snaps

Exhaust manifolds removed

Starter and shaft this shaft links to the starter crank at the rear of the Stug ,starting by the shaft is the correct way of starting the stug . You can see the oil tank at the top of the picture the red cap for the tank also holds the dip stick
