  3. i bow to your technical knowledge but i bought a jimmy from somebody that times up multibanks ( 5 dodges) drove it for 15 miles untill it gave up got recovery home next day was baffled untill i saw the frost on the base of the carburettor i had seen it before the firing order was wrong swapped two leads and it purred it was timed as a bedford not a gmc also i went to kent to buy a command car the vendor took me for a road test which was good but it ran like a dog when we returned i raised the bonnet and swapped two leads then he mentioned the two traders that were there the day before
  4. hello iain yes nice guy told me he took his H licence in a mates 432 so he could legally load tracked vehicles but the way to his heart is a bacon butty;)
  5. nobody has mentioned the firing order
  6. i bought a command car earlier in the year but have not had much chance to look at it. it has a big radio in the back and the ceramic on the aerial base is like a flying saucer the plate on the firewall shows 19 not 29 and it has a winch can a wc58 have a winch and a 19 body number or is it just a wc57 reconnaissance with a radio. also at some stage something substantial had been mounted on the top of front passenger wing with 8 bolts just intrigued

  9. i am a serious buyer i buy enough vehicles its just nice to have a clue what the vendor is looking for. you put a £1000 each on those gimmys when i bought one
  10. there seems to be a current trend of keeping prices secret why do people advertise vehicles without the price we have had the old POA now they just do not include the price often i have been interested but thought if they cannot put a price i cannot be bothered getting involved in a long conversation just to find out how much it is:-|

  12. brilliant a really good show if that format ie a dedicated military vehicle show can be brought to this end of essex even east anglia it will be a winner fed up with going to kent, fed up with the m25 , fed up with the whatever zone, situated nearer to harwich port, temple at war is trying but a proper show of that calibre in this area can only be great for the mv enthusiast :wow:
