    Hi every one if you have not herd by now Due to government guide lines and the Covid 19 out break we have taken the sad decision to cancel this years show😥 But keep an eye on our web site as we will be putting the overlord show on next year at the end of May as always God willing. I would like to say a big thank you to all of you who support this show and wish you all to stay safe at this unprecedented time Thank you Richard Salter Solent overlord executive Chairman
  3. I have one of these trailers, mine is a Brockhouse 5ton trailer they only brake on the rear axle they had two types overrun brakes and Vacuum brakes mine is Vacuum brakes there is a actuation chamber under the chassie of the trailer which operates the brakes i tow it with my Leyland Hippo like most vehicles of this age they were vacuum over hydraulic systems the pipe from the trailer screws straight on to the connection on the lorry. as the trailer is historic it doesn't need plating as long as you are not using it for hire or reward. I wrote to the DVLA to ask if i could load my Loyd carrier on the trailer and take it to shows; They then put me in touch with the IVS (international Vehicle Standards) whoe sent me a letter saying they do not have a problem with towing the trailer with my Leyland Hippo on the public road loaded with my historic Loyd carrier as long it is not for hire or reward. But of course the brakes have to work as it was originally designed and also the lorry doesn't go any faster than 30 mph ☺️ Richard

  14. Hi got the tube supports done did them on a cnc machine £140 each now stronger and better Thanks
  15. I have one I have had it for a couple of years and restored it I love it yes they are slow but are reliable if you get one make sure the the fuel injection pump is not seized or have water in them if its been sat around for ages they don't like that. The vehicles start on 24volt and lights are 12volt keep the lorry regular greased especially the clutch and water pump.none of them go fast 28 to 30 mph max you can turn the transfer box round but how often do you drive it? and you might get it to 35 to 40 mph ? there is not much different between the 2A and 2b wheels air filter that's about all. I hope this helps and the war time ones engine are E175 engine the later 50 to 60 have the 600 engine. Hope this helps
