  1. NSMVT WAR WHEELS 19th 20th MAY 2018

    Hi Do you have a website for the event? Reason I ask is like to include interesting events which are 5 to 6 months out in our local MV club newsletter. Gives our local members a feeling for what's going on around the world. Never know when someone will be traveling. Should probably say our local club draws it's members from New England and eastern Canada. Cheers Phil
  2. Oops!

    Hi What is the name of the book? So the rest of us can avoid a poorly fact checked book. In the defence of the author it might have been the publisher who inserted an extra or "better " photo. Cheers Phil
  3. Fuel pump diaphram material

    Hi Often trying to find this type of matierials directly from the company or thier wholesalers is a lost cause because they want to sell you a entire sheet, large enough to make hundreds diaphragms or gaskets which costs maybe hundreds if not thounsands of dollars. Try instead to find an end user of the matierial, as Ron suggests, that might have the matierial and be willing to sell small amounts. Or as I have had happen the guy reaches in to the scrap bin grabs a chunk to small for their use and gives it to you. Carry a photo of what you are working on to peak their interest, works good on MV stuff, amazing how many veterans out there. Cheers Phil
  4. Replica .50 Cal

    Hi As I have not figured out how to find locations, what country are you located in? If you are in the states send me private message, we got a machinist in our club who turning out and selling some very good replicas. Pretty sure he does not sell outside the US. Cheers Phil
  5. New (old) colors

    Yup, looks more like home. Thanks for all the hard work. Cheers Phil
  6. Welcome back!

    Hi Joris Thanks for all the hard work moving the forum forward. Chaning to a new softward package or operating system is not easy. Now to the problem of adapting from the old layout to the new. Many of us are creatures of habit we look at forum we know where the tab we use all the time are, and may not even remember what it said. So how about a screen shot of the old forum page (tabs in particular) and the new forum page with lines connecting the old function with new function. Now on to enjoying the Forum in its new format. Again thanks Cheers Phil
  7. 1942 No 8 Ford (Blitz) Gun Tractor

    I like that explanation Cheers Phil
  8. 1942 No 8 Ford (Blitz) Gun Tractor

    Hi Great thread, always enjoy hearing about CMP family of vehicles. But got a question how did this thread end up under the Thread Heading "American Vehicles" Given the number of CMPs built do they deserve a separate heading? Perhaps something like Commonwealth Vehicle to recognize all the vehicle's produced? Being the nut in the USA who owns three restored CMPs and Im always explaining the story of these unique vehicles. Cheers Phil
  9. Colouring for oil

    Hi One simple solution is to drill very small holes in the dip stick at the measure marks. The holes will retain the oil and is easier to see the level. This is a very old trick I first came across on Fords of the 40s seen it on several engings so it must have been a common trick. Cheers Phil

    Hi James Your choice of heading is perfectly fine, particularly give that 59% of the Forum is from England. I just enjoyed the play on words being from the other side of the pond. Glad to hear that second generation in the MV hobby and still enjoying. Cheers Phil

    Hello from member in New Hampshire, USA Hi James When I saw your title line just had to respond, welcome aboard the wonderful world of military vehicles. But from your post it looks like it may run in your family tree. Cheers Phil
  12. Photobucket.......

    Hi All With nothing to base this on but a truly synical point of view about the future of the internet, my guess is that this sudden action by Photobucket is a last gasp action before they go under completely. My recommendation to anybody who has photos stored with them is download all your photos and save them to your computer. Will bet anyone (one stale donut) that within one year Photobucket will be gone. Cheers Phil
  13. WWII CMP FAT rear seats

    Hi They look like standard CMP front seats with different mounting lugs. Provide some measurements to confirm. Not that CMP front seats are much easier to find. Cheers Phil
  14. C60L Chevrolet 1945

    Hi Remembered I'd already posted the speedo cable on my website http://www.canadianmilitarypattern.com/Speedometer%20Page%20Notes.htm Hope this helps.
  15. C60L Chevrolet 1945

    Hi The cable end at the transfer case is not a standard square end instead it is 1/4 (+/-)inch diameter with little tab out to the side. PAT 13 C60L and C60S should be same length will find my shop note book and post the dimensions and pictures. Do you need the both inner and outer? Warning - Be very careful of the routing and be sure that all the clamps along the cable are in place. Watch for clearance around the brake presume switch and starter cable. Mine shorted out on the brake switch power side got hot and melted through the insulation on the starter cable then the fun start as it nearly burned through the fuel line. Burned the wiring harness in the same area. Happen to be in the shop at the time smelled and saw the smoke shoved the CO2 in the area while remove the battery cable. Cheers Phil
