  4. Calling all Exhibitors! It is that time of year again and I would like to formally announce that the applications for OVERLORD D-DAY 75 a.k.a The Overlord Show 2019 are now open! You may be aware that 2019 marks 75 years after D-Day, and it has been decided that we will really push the boat out this year to commemorate this monumental event in history. The team are pleased to announce our most ambitious plans for the main battle, where we hope to simulate the Normandy landings, landing craft and all. While we wish to focus on D-Day this year, we continue to believe that the Overlord Show is dedicated to providing an interesting, exciting, and educational experience of “recent” military history, and is fundamentally multi-era, and we continue to welcome applications from all military vehicles, reenactors or other exhibits regardless of the associated era. As in previous years, the applications for the show will be processed online. Please make an account on our website (If you made an account last year you will NEED to re-register for 2019), and visit the Exhibitors Page. Application forms for each section can be found by clicking the respective buttons on that page! Please visit https://overlordshow.co.uk/exhibitors/ to make an application! Date: 25th -27 May 2019 Location: The Lawns, Denmead https://overlordshow.co.uk/ https://www.facebook.com/omspectacular/ https://www.twitter.com/@OverlordShow https://www.facebook.com/events/180388875930587/

    Crossley tender wanted

    I've tried! Did track down a car chassis in the west, was stolen by subversives in 1920/21 burnt out and dumped in a lake, but its a tender I'm after... 😁

    Wow a Brucy dream. Strange to think one may be lurking very near to you.

    New project - Mk 1 Knocker 6x6

    I think a major requirement in vehicle restoration is a sense of humor, mainly for the when runaway expence is realised and the storage cost peeks out from under the bonnet/hood. A stammer is handy to give time to think of an excuse when pressed for answers from the significant other.

    Brian, welcome, and thank you for such a helpful first post! The news that spares may once again become available is very encouraging and welcome.

    New project - Mk 1 Knocker 6x6

    Not so amusing as how they established the £cost of a new Eastenders TV set (a real and full exhibited MV museum would be far cheaper), I must add - I have never watched such productions , so must be totally uncultivated.

    TREWHELLA WINCHES

    Hello and thank you for letting me join your Forum. I was reading "utt61" Post regarding his collection of Monkey Winches and the prospect of having to have new springs remanufactured. I have to date found that the Monkey Winch is no longer manufactured by Trewhella Bros in the UK, hence no exports or spare parts available in the UK as a result of the Company going "belly up" in early 2017. There IS now a manufacturer in India that is producing these winches! I contacted the Company to see if they provided a spare parts back-up or would sell "replacement parts". The answer was a flat "No". There IS a seller in China...does not answer inquires. OK that's the bad news! The "GOOD NEWS" is there is a chap in Australia Dennis Trewhella (now the penny have have dropped for some already). Yes "Kin" of the Original Trewhella Brothers. He is in his capacity of "keeper of all plans/schematics" Trewhella now out of kindness and consideration to keeping these winches/jacks running, making parts where possible. He currently has replacement springs for the Monkey Winch and is in the process of having the cast sweeper remanufactured to original specs. Enough of my ranting as a new member. His contact e-mail is trewhellajacks@gmail.com so if chasing "odball springs" and such this chap may be able to assist. Hope that helps.

    FWD gets new shoes

    Bob, That's all good news! Wisconsin made a quality product! That valve guide looks great! I had to replace all mine and the valves as well. One of the seats was sunk about a 1/16 of an inch from being ground very, very frequently back in the day. T.

    Hi Jim Some night the dream is more like a nightmare but I am sure when I finally awake, and it is completed , the dream will have been quite pleasurable!
  25. Have you contacted the Fire Service Preservation Group? https://www.fireservicepreservationgroup.org/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/534511639928632/
  26. Thanks For that table👍🏻 I have noticed all the reasonable priced tyres are for agricultural use. One tyre on it is absolutely rotten unfortunately and makes it difficult to move around cheers
  27. Can't help on tyres that don't cost the world but don't be tempted to use agricultural tyres even if they are the cheapest option. What is the rim width? Table from:- https://www.tyres-pneus-online.co.uk/tyre-equivalence-advice.html Rim width Minimum tyre width Ideal tyre width Maximum tyre width 5,0 Inches 155 mm 165 or 175 mm 185 mm 5,5 Inches 165 mm 175 or 185 mm 195 mm 6,0 Inches 175 mm 185 or 195 mm 205 mm 6,5 Inches 185 mm 195 or 205 mm 215 mm
