    Hi Adrian,
    Just shows that errors crept in War Office publications and were never amended !
    Actually I can add another vehicle to the list that used the 155-2B, that is the Humber Scout Car Mk1 and 2 (this comes from the vehicle parts book)

    Given its location, I suspect it is from a Daimler A/C. Unless it's a more recent import!

    You can read me like a book! Yes Adrian I think I concur with you, as I picked up some brand new control boards for the Loyd carrier along with this one, quite an interesting subject though , Cheers Andrew

    My Humber Scout parts list just shows it as a 155-2. I wonder what the B signifies?

    Adrian,
    My parts list is First Edition August 1944, definitely 155-2B.

    Alas no idea on what the B means on the end model number - my guess would be a revision to the original, although looking at a parts list for a similar board (189) the letters used are A, B, M and T with no obvious difference.

    If it's a read across from the main number, the letters seem to mean different things on different regulators, so 37A indicates ammeter terminals on a 37, while 155A indicates compensated voltage on the 155.

    On the 75 (which will be popular with the softskin fans on the forum) 75B indicates for use with dynamo without field resistance, and 75BT (as on Bedford, Ford etc.) is the same but with a special low temperature regulator.
    Lessons learned from working with military vehicles, number 10 in a series. "Never tip the strange silver thing with hoses upside down over the toolbox. It will leak gunk."

    37S series seemed to use H5 regulators & BCK-1 cutouts.

    The details of the replacements appear in EMER POWER 0 133 Table 1 1955
