    Brockhouse generator trailer

    I noticed the leaves in your photos, may be only out for a relatively short time. I recall the water drain holes had a tendency to block up with the expected results, great cammo net by the way.

    Great trailers, we bought one 20 odd years ago and abused it terribly on the farm, super strong. Yours is in very sound condition, must have been stored indoors?.

    Thanks to Matchfuzee, didn't know Tanksalot had so many! Just a bit pricey for a resto job, which is what I'm looking for. but thanks again for taking the time, much appreciated mate. Johnwardle, that would be at the very least an interesting lead, thank you mate for thinking on for me. Jim

    Help, Bedford OY servo problems

    Interesting comments. Certainly times were much slower, my dad talks of, when as a lad, of being able to grab hold of the back of lorries to get a free tow up a hill on his bicycle, they were that slow. Its the same with brakes, of course we cannot judge them against their modern counterparts.

    Help, Bedford OY servo problems

    Hi Folks, Today I out was out in the shed early before it got too hot and after making a slight alteration to the setting of the linkage refitted the unit and success, works perfect and yes it is indeed surprising the effect the servo has on the braking effect. The engine now has just a momentary surge (almost imperceivable) before resuming a steady tick over before a 'hiss' when the brake pedal is released. I big thank you to all who contributed to educating me with their knowledge. I'm all ready now for the trucks big outing to the YWE! All best, Jim.
