1930s wheel size query

I wonder if someone could be so kind as to tell me the wheel size (wheel/tyre) as typically fitted to 1930s AEC coaches - I believe probably a T model? It's not technically important, I'm simply making a roughly scaled drawing of a an AEC coach from around 1930-35 which will be constructed as a wooden toy. However I would like to get it 'looking right'.
Kind regards, Tony Johnson. Email:

Parts needed for 11.3 A220 horizontal engines

We have posted previously looking for help with sourcing spares for our 11.3 A220 horizontal engines and are in need of some help again. Can anyone give details of a supplier who may have water pump seals for our three point mount belt driven pump and also rocker cover gaskets. We could also do with a spare water pump but appreciate that's a bit of a long shot. Any replies/suggestions/assistance to thanks in advance.
