    Wanted Bedford MW wheel

    there were two 8 stud military wheels for sale at the three oakfords rally nr shillingstone at the weekend, there were military vehicles on show so someone in the dorset mvt might have seen them and know who the seller was.
  6. well now theres a conundrum, only wwII vehicles but Hotchkiss post war jeeps are ok, that does not seem fair, as most of the veterans of the time are no longer with us we are surely showing our respect for them, so it would not matter what vehicle was used, I can see the point of military vehicles only but cannot see the point in an age restriction, do we not respect all of our forces even those currently serving, this is not a criticism just my thoughts, alan
  7. oh well that's knocked that idea on the head then, I don't think theres much chance of finding a wwII vehicle and getting it done by the date, thanks for your help joris.

    2019 MVT normandy tour whos going

    is there a limit on the total vehicles or people on this trip
  9. hi Joris is there a year stipulation to the age of vehicles or can it be any military vehicle, also is there a cut off date to register, I will be away from base until mid may and have not yet had definite answer from possible attendees and a vehicle we have found which would serve our needs we are unsure of a build date but is post war.

    Night heaters

    I have diesel eberspachers in both an 03 fiat ducato camper 12v and a Mercedes atego two 24v. as well as most of the trucks I have driven over the years, all good gear, run stationary or moving, really good sites on u tube for repairs and service, usually reliable but the later ones are hard wired into the trucks electrics and second hand do not always have everything you need, the most common fault is the little wire gauze under the igniter plug becoming blocked, a cheap fix and readily available from fleabay, (if its been continually tried to start it may smoke for awhile when running again to burn off fuel mine smoked for nearly an hour and the lady over the road thought the house was on fire lol)

    Photobucket issues

    i am sure on the trucknet site there was a fix for that but I was not a photo bucket user,
  12. thanks for that joris, we are looking for something green to bring, grand fathers Bedford was requisitioned with himself during the war, used on airfield runway construction hauling beach shingle for concrete, we will be in touch.
  13. any idea why my pictures come up every time I post something, or better still how do I delete them, I asked the mods but no reply as yet,
  14. no real reason it needs to follow close, and meet up at the end is fine, its our accommodation so just needs to be ready when the head gets too heavy.
  15. can we get a discount from dfds on the crossings, does my transporter just follow on behind the road runs, at a subtle distance of course,
