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
