    They're hydraulic Rick, the pump is fitted to the right of the driver's seat and is also used to raise the seat. There is a changeover lever marked seat and hood.

    hi Adrian,
    Is that a Smiths Jackall pump, similar to that in a Humber armoured car to lift the engine cover? That was an adaption of the motor car jack pump.

    Still hunting here - dont turn anything down in the meantime, just in case. I'm 99% certain I have a spare copy somewhere though.

    Rick

    Can we have an update please?

    Has it moved out of the vineyard?

    What are your intentions for its future?

    Regards
    Doug

    Rick

    Only those couple of wheel sets that I mentioned earlier in this thread. They are supposed to have gone to South Australia to a collector there. I have no idea who or where.

    Could be quite an exercise to get them to the UK even if they were located.

    Regards
    Doug
