    Thanks for the info. Nice to know it's wartime. I can do some research now into the 2 possible manufacturers. Peter.

    10cwt mortar trailer.

    Could it not be Orme Evans - definitely wartime as it has an X number.

    Loyd TS&C T69261

    Good luck Pete....there is a pile of highly useful ‘scrap’ coming your way next week. It will be excellent to have a starter charger Loyd restored in England.

    Thanks for the info Simon. Any idea if it is wartime or post-war? Peter.

    Loyd TS&C T69261

    I am missing most of the starting & charging gear, I have got the PTO and 6 belt drive pulley and the 2 gallon stone were jar for distilled water. Any help tracking down any parts would be useful. There should be a 12V and 30V dynamos with 3 belt pulleys and 3 control boards. Also battery trays on the floor and a battery shelf across the top of the bulkhead and along the sides. There should be 4 15 foot cables for jumping and some storage boxes/trays. Also the floor cover for the dynamos. Any leads on parts or measurements to make parts would be a great help. Peter.

    OEC is Owen Equipment Company I believe, one of 4 or 5 different manufacturers of these trailers, each firm having their own particular foibles

    Loyd TS&C T69261

    I have just got my loyd tracked starting and charging back from New Zealand and I am hoping to rebuild with the S&C gear. A lot of work has already been done before I bought it, but still plenty to do. Luckily I am 30minutes from Alastair who knows just about everything about Loyd's and has sorted many of the problems I would have ran into. The Loyd was built by Vivian Loyd & Co and the brake drums are dated 42. I have got a few parts stashed away Including a good flathead V8 as I was told the engine with it is on +60tho cylinders. Peter.

    Hi Simon. We were only talking about you and your trailer this afternoon. Thanks for the offer, I will probably take you up on it after harvest. At the moment I was hoping someone could give me some information on the trailer from the numbers, e,g, age and manufacturer. Peter.

    Looking for dark green vehicle seat vynil

    I've used Tek Military Seating (a current MOD supplier) in the past for my Abbot seats. They're very amenable to individual jobs and their work is excellent. Andy

    3.5 CCk Onan generator

    As I recall it uses the generator as a starter, there is no separate motor

    Saracen hill climbing

    Good advise to keep the revs up in lower gear Andy as if you let them labour, the flywheel oil overheats and cooks the seal, then leaks. Seen it happen. regards, Richard

    Peter, You are very welcome to come over and look at my 10cwt GS in North Notts if you need to check or measure anything. Has the earlier type of hitch though

    We also have a very steep long hill on our route , we call it angina hill and both ours have to drop to third and sometimes second gear . They are 60 plus old ladies so we don't push to hard , just keep revs to a reasonable rate in the gear it's happy with . Well it works for ours .

    3.5 CCk Onan generator

    Just a quick clean and check all of the electrical conections, Carefully put your hand near or on the starter motor to see if there is any heat comming through the casing. If there is that could be an indication of an internal problem

    Mk1 Militant Tanker

    Good weekends work in the sunshine, bit sweaty with the coverals on, though. Finally got to the bottom of my issues with the blast skirt. There was a tiny bit in the centre that was catching on the engine sump plug, and causing the whole thing to distort. Trimmed it off to give a bit more clearance and every thing lines up One final test fit of the top half and then set about joining the bottom on. Finished article looks like this Considerably better than what came off New one actually works like it is supposed to as well. Bottom half hinges up 90° for maintenance or extra ground clearance. Hot weather is great for painting, dries almost instantly. Sealed inside edge with Hammerite stonechip Ten minutes later it is dry enough to turn over and primer the outside. Nice thick coating of hi-build stuff ready to be flatted down for the top coat once it is fitted back on. Finally, good news about the water pump. Last week I sent it to SP Water pumps in Warrington, Cheshire. Their website gave it all the spiel about doing vintage stuff, and when I phoned them they reckoned they would have parts on the shelf, even for a 60 odd year old item. Got a call back on Friday, pump all done, they did have replacement seals etc. Only £195 and I should have it back on Monday. Excellent service. They say they can also do Bedford and Austin/Morris stuff too, and sixty years old is nothing to what they can do So the old Tanker could be up and running again by the end of the week, and I can get on with the last bit at the back of the cab
