  1. There are several reasons for the air gap in the silencer. One is to stop it possibly glowing in the dark another is to stop anyone burning themselfs by touching it, another is to cut silencer vibration and emited noise. Then you have a skin that will sustain damage and not detract from the silencer operation.
  2. Hello, I have a pending payment on paypal saying you have not accepted yet? It was on Oct 4th for two gaskets. Regards John.

  3. Sounds like a big cam Cummins powerplant probably made in Darlington . With a bulletproof Fuller ranger hung on the rear once you learn to change gear clutchless you will enjoy the drive. Need ear defenders though especially if the exhaust comes out at the front..

    Saxon armoured car .

    Saxons seem to have been built using some common parts with a Bedford KM. Spares should be fairly easily obtained for the Cummins engine they seem to be a popular engine to shoehorn between many different types of chassis rails.

      Hi John, two gaskets or fuel tank caps? Paypal to friends or family is easiest. My email is:

    leyland drops engine oil capacity

    Do not feel that way, I will be hidden in another list. At the worst just go with a best guess and check it with the dipstick as you refill the old Roller.

    It was worth watching just to see the parachute being packed by a man that can. Tool roll all in order and clean.

    1939 Leyland Hippo

    That makes at least 3 for sale at the minute. All really nice trucks
  10. I think I only have that part, I will have to go into the Dark Box to see how many I have.
  11. With older vehicles replacing weathered parts is just a fact of life. You can tell if most things are sound with an empty system a pair of safety glasses a small hammer and just little taps and the sound says a lot.

    RAF Militant.....or not?

    Yes, I claim old age brain fade.

    RAF Militant.....or not?

    I have a vague idea you could tell an RAF Pioneer because it was fitted with a cab heater
  14. If no leaks and working I would just leave them.
  15. Salty roads is the bigest enemy of braking furniture. If you can hear them leaking you have to o/haul or replace. 120 is not considered high presure on todays trucks. Anything under presure be carefull with though, Any pictures. I have only been working on and cursing 360s lately.

  18. I did not realise it was an aluminium housing. Looks like a good fix.

    Wanted Ally land rover panels

    Take a wander down to your local vehicle recycaling yard and you will find some bits to practice with. Postage of body pannels is expensive.

    WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    If the sump is very thin, you may have a problem with vibration and the screws when the engine is running. Why not put another patch on the inside and bolt through.
  22. You could try threading the outside of the casing, then use a round pipe fitting trimed to length, it does not look as ugly as a nut. you could use some liquid metal on the threads as you assemble it that would make a solid repair. Or make and shrink a small collar on the outside, with the banjo bolt in place. keep moving the bolt as the collar cools. You will be able to aquire or make a longer banjo bolt to go deeper into the threaded hole. Or dismantle it altogether and braize up the cracks
