  4. Since I sold Forceful I do mostly mixed shows with Rugged and car shows with my '28 Chevy. W&P is the only military event I go to now, only missed 3 and I always have a great week, don't get bogged down with the politics and as I have a loo in my camper van never had a reason to complain, it is what it is. The Rugged One should be fully road legal soon, but will I have the fortitude to drive him all the way? 😰 Bernard

    1914 Dennis Lorry

    We put another gallon of fuel in the tank. The glamorous assistant choked the carb whilst I turned the engine over for a few revolutions. After turning the magneto on it started on the third flick of the handle. It seems like we nearly have the starting process sorted; I will have to refit the choke to the carb to give me the option of starting it on my own. MVI_4368.MOV

    1914 Dennis Lorry

    So, I only had some of today to work on the lorry. The first job was using a 1/2" bolt to draw the guide bushes into the clutch. Then fit the studs to the clutch centre and fit it to the threaded clutch hub bush. A centre punch was used to produce a small indentation at the perimeter of the retaining screw (to hopefully prevent it from coming undone). Then the clutch was put in place. I am not sure if the studs should come out far enough that the nuts can be fitted with the springs at their free length. I have used cable ties to compress the springs but need to replace the single nuts with a pair of half nuts. I will have to see how it feels when it is all together, it is a mix of Dennis parts from different vehicles so I may not have it quite right.

    1914 Dennis Lorry

    Thanks for the comments, it was annoying that I had to fly to Denmark on Monday morning so could not have another go with the engine. At least it gave me plenty of time to rest my starting arm. I got back on Friday evening and we drove straight down to Southampton ready for Beaulieu autojumble. The in service photo of the lorry shows a large brass mirror on the drivers side; I managed to negotiate this one for a sensible price. I also picked up the Claudel Hobson carburettor jets in case I decide I need to try another size.
  13. Cheers, Surveyor. Not sure how many on here this will be of interest to, but I have also just started uploading some of my old combat boot scribbles and snaps, which were first published in C&S, on my new J-F website. Two MoD suppliers ( Alt-Berg and Iturri ) have also sent me sample pairs of the next generation of UK Forces combat boots for evaluation and I expect two more models - from AKU ( CHL ) and HAIX (DCHL ) - to arrive over the next few weeks so articles on these will also be posted in due course on J-F.

    Photobucket backtrack

    I checked and the pics are indeed back. But I do agree they must have lost a lot of goodwill and money after all of this.

    Photobucket backtrack

    Don’t know if this is right Forum or not. Please move if appropriate. Seems that the decision to charge for third party hosting has been reversed. Looks as if all the forum pictures that were hosted via photobucket and had been replaced by that dreaded Photobucket logo are now visible again. You wonder if the brand is terminally damaged though as a result of the original decision to charge.

    thanks bob. i now have 4 centurions so i've a feeling i'll be needing it
  20. Morning guys, Glad to hear my scribbles and snaps are still of interest. Robin, if I remember correct the next round is yours so stop hiding on the other side of the Pond you tight git. I do not plan on taking the easy way out and republishing the LRM (or earlier LRO) articles, as not only would the publishers be unhappy bunnies but also many things I did not know back then have subsequently surfaced to bring the story forward. However as I have always asserted my © on my original images, and as I still have most of them (unfortunately some slides never got returned by publishers and some disappeared into the world's biggest shoebox of unsorted stuff) there is a good chance, insha'Allah, that I will go back over most of the subjects in due course. I have just uploaded the second article to JOINT-FORCES.com - on the early Ninety, using mostly old snaps from 1988 - which some of you might appreciate. http://www.joint-forces.com/features/military-land-rovers/13961-military-land-rovers-pt-2-the-ninety Next I'll look briefly at the early One-Ten before covering the Jordanian Armed Forces One-Tens using a mix of historic and recent shots.
