  5. After a good day playing around we cleaned the front of the truck and had her running. But we have a problem with the parking brake it has a air leak on the unit it's self but don't know why ???? But we did not get round to cleaning the back of the truck today because we needed some lunch.
  6. Hi everyone..Here are 3 pictures Of my constructor i have not seen her for a number of years due to other projects / issues ,so this is what she looks like now and I hope to to bring her home in the near future. Earlier in the thread my friend John did mention that I owned the constructor he was right I have owned it for many years now approximate 14. She was in excellent condition but the last few years in storage have taken its toll on her being outside.
  7. hi everybody i have managed to get a little further with the meadows pump system, but i have another problem. The alternator drive coupling , which is about 5 inches long ,vulcanized rubber at both ends , one of the ends which is vulcanized to the shaft has perished . I was just wondering does anyone know where i could get a replacement ? it was on the meadows petrol engine before i did the conversion to diesel. i dont think im able to take a picture, but when the rain stops i will try and see if i can get to it and take a pic. any help/suggestions gratefully recieved thanks shawn
  8. Hi Nickit is a little difficult for me to send e-mails I have specialise software which enables me to send e-mails and other software which enables me to read so that's why I don't do many e-mails . I will talk to you on the phone, we'll send you a private e-mail with my telephone number on.shawn
  9. Hi Nickthought you might like that , I know a little more about your scammell your conversion was gone before mine I remember it now. Spoke to the bloke who did it a couple of times if I remember right it then went into museum he got something else not sure what, he had problems with his pomp. I think that my friend John helped him with the pump problem. Speak to you soons shawn

  11. thank you for the address of the Anglesey Scammell we will try to find it tomorrow. I am just hoping the other half allows me to do this tomorrow, she's already seen one Scammell today so I will keep you posted thanks shawn
  12. thank you for letting me come and see your scammell today. I will check my fuel pump when I get home, it was extremely interesting seeing the difference between your pump and my pump. It seems like a better idea the system which is on your Scammell I wish mine was just as easy. Anyway we will get to the bottom of this I'm sure thank you for your help today. Once again thanks very much shawn.
