    RAF Leyland workshop lorry

    I did some work on the workshop body at Duxford some years ago and was told then that it was originally a railway wagon body that had been re-purposed at the time, I'm not sure of the veracity of this though. PT

    WS 19 Battery size

    Glad to hear its up and running, well done. Officially two 6v batteries with a capacity of between 85 -170 Ah, I run mine from a single 12v 85Ah leisure battery. For a mains power supply I use a 240 -12v caravan transformer, dont be tempted to use a Switch mode PSU as these will trip out on overcurrent when the rotary transfomers start up. PT

    K9 tyre pressure

    yes Mine was on 60 front and rear, and largely unloaded when I got it, the ride did improve when I changed the pressures but the steering got a little heavier...

    K9 tyre pressure

    Well the official answer is, it depends on what version and how much you are carrying. there are 5 different tyre pressures given in the servicing schedule. A - 35psi front and rear for road, 35psi front and rear off road. B - 35 front 45 rear for road, 35 front and rear off road. C - 35 front 50 rear for road, 35 front 40 rear off road. D - 35 front 55 rear for road, 35 front 45 rear off road. E - 35 front 70 rear for road, 35 front 55 rear off road. The schedule lists 29 different versions of K9 to which the five different type pressure code apply. Common ones are Truck, G.S., 1 Ton 4x4 Austin K9 A Truck, G.S., F.F.R. 1 Ton 4x4 Austin K9, Mk 2 A Radio station, Truck mounted, 1 Ton 4x4 Austin K9 Mk2 A Radio station, Truck mounted, SRC42/C45HP, 1 Ton 4x4 Austin K9 D Radio station, Truck mounted, SRD11/R234, 1 Ton 4x4 Austin K9 C Truck, Tanker, Water, 1 ton, 200 gal., Austin K9 B I have a C42 and a WS19 fitted in mine and a lot of other kit gets carried in the back as well going to shows so I run on code D, seems to work ok.

  15. I have a mounting plate, removed from a WS19 variometer, that is surplus to requirements should anybody want it. The plate is flat, 6 1/2 x 4 inches, and it is stamped with the No. FV55646. The FV no. and the fact it is painted silver suggest to me that it is a mounting adaptor plate for a post war armoured vehicle. PT
