    1500x20 Bar Grip

    Thats the sort of thing! Mr Crouch has 2x 1500x20's but there a more modern pattern, I may have sorted one to make up my beam, thats a good spot!

    Leyland Martian Fv1103A

    Im not surprised the level you going to! just superb! Im bringing a FV1119 back to life, its not going to be anywhere near the level you have gone to, but hoping to have it reliable abit likely with a few leaks 😜

    1500x20 Bar Grip

    in that case is it worth replacing them? its unlikely to be subjected to loads it would have been in the past, I was worried as it will get lots of use on wet ground and this will likely result in wheel slip especially with the tires it the worn state they are..

    1500x20 Bar Grip

    ive got one walking beam that has very worn tires, there not damaged but the tread is nearly flat in the centre, the shoulders still have tread left... I found that 1 drive shaft in the beam had failed and I suspect the lack of tread and resulting wheel slip may well have been a contributing factor and im keen to avoid a repeat..
  10. Ive not maintained an air braked machine before, im very conscious of the dangers of compressed air! I have lots of leaks in the air system's of Bravo Mike 8-0, so ive got a fair bit of work to do, however im worried about the accumulators, the air gauge shows 120psi at them and there very old even if externally they look "ok", in the opinion of you chaps is it worth getting them off and inspected? or tested? im tempted to do it as part of the brake over haul but worried im wasting my time should replace them?. thanks for any advise. Sam.
  11. Im missing pretty much all the working lights, I can find convoy and number plate lights but need to find the following :- rear brake light cluster rear indicators front side lights front lolly pop indicators this is a low priority at the moment as im still in tare down, I do plan getting a copy of the parts book to get FV numbers but though I would post here as you chaps seem very helpful! Cheers Sam.

    ive got some of the former fittings as there the same as the landy's!
  13. there not leaking, the system has leaks but not from the tanks, im not planning on using it until I have a sound system. I shall see if I can get some fibre optics in there and take a look see but I can do that without taking them off. I could replace a lot of stuff "for the sake of it" and im not, but with brakes...

    I could only find lenses for what looks like the back lamps... maybe some fabrication...

    are these the rear ones? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/283152675724
  16. I shall check for leaks as I go around fixing the detectable ones, but in your experience you would not replace them if there not leaking then?
  17. I have a bodged out put flange on my 1119, ive yet to remove it completely but at some point the thead in the feed from the oil pump has been striped and when they helicoiled it has then cracked.. [take off for hydraulics] Im not shore if it can be repaired, im likely going to have to have something fabed, but I though I would ask does anyone have one or would know somewhere i could get one? I would like to keep it original... thanks For any help.
  18. I removed it on Friday, the flange has another "turret" the same as the one with the oil way's in. however the bolt holes dont allow for rotation of the housing. so, the housing has been modified to make it all line up to the new "turret", the new "turret" has had the 2 gallery's cut in to it and been threaded,the old gallery's are blanked off one just buy the fact the flange has been rotated the other buy use of a locktited thread. tested for leaks all ok. further testing after i have the catch tank for the hydraulics refilled. thanks for support and ideas, im hoping this is a permanent fix I seen no reason for it not to be, it out of site and you would not see the work unless you inspected it. attached are pics of the new setup and a close up of the damage to the old gallery. nice reminder about working with ally.
  19. im at a stop at the moment as I need a clean container for the contents of the catch tank before I pull the pump out. I will post when I have it off for your opinions when you have better information. Thanks chaps.
  20. the problem iss the "repair" attempt has cracked it.. Ive yet to see how badly do you still think it could be repaired?
  21. theres at least 3 films on there on the trailers and recovery of the Churchill sideways and a simple recovery of a Crusader. Very nice videos and good quality!
  22. Ok I found that could help in the end they had to get a guy out of a shed to sort it but seemingly it shares parts with a "ms5-24-4" The trip plate had broken and clutch/pressure plate was badly worn. hopefully all sorted ive yet to test will have a look the weekend! Thanks all.
  23. Can you get parts for the motors or is the only option a recon unit? Thanks Sam. https://marcusglenn.com/humber-pig-fv-1600-series/starter-motor-rolls-royce-b-series-
