  1. Hi Pete, I have this original Sept 1943 Chrysler Corporation of Canada "Operating and Spare Parts Manual 200 Gal. Water Tank Mounted on Dodge T222 4x2 Chassis". Do you have one? If you are interested please pm me.
  2. Valve spring compressor, with range of heads for different sized valves
  3. Anthony, I've already given you a copy of the original EMER for the Trailer,@-Wheeled, Lightweight, Type "Electrical Repair" which lists all the major and minor pieces of kit. It included Grinding Wheel dressers, three types of "Extractors" (Pullers) and right down to the number and size of twist drills carried. Do you need another copy?
  4. Looks good. Very few of these in the world...and two reside within a couple of miles of each other!
  5. until

    We'll be there with selection of Canadian WWII vehicles. Best MV show in the Sussex/Kent....by far
  6. I'll enjoy watching this restoration. This superb Dodge was at the Dieppe commemorations last summer
  7. Go on Richard...wouldn't that look good on your truck! Imagine the comments .....until you prove it is a real period cam scheme
  8. Hi Richard, thought you'd like this film. It is all interesting but first minutes especially so for you.... https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/1060033073 Cheers
  9. Hi Cam, I believe your trailer would have been converted to the Coventry Climax engined generator in late 40's/early 50's period, at that time (or during a further re-build) it would have had the later electrical wiring and fittings installed. BUT, think the basic trailer and chassis is WWII manufacture. Taskers had contract S9778 to build "Trailer, 10cwt 2wh Generator 6Kw". This contract was allocated the following 'X-numbers": 6263828 - 6264327, although I don't know how many generators were actually built of the 499 numbers allocated. Regarding the Electrical Repair cover: my trailer is currently in storage and not easily measured. If you are going to have the cover made, you could make the bows to suit and then the cover to fit. The cover is held on with short leather straps that secure onto footman loops which are under the body. Cheers John
  10. I appreciate it is a lot of effort, but threads like yours are inspirational and a great resource for the future...
  11. This is the brass plate from my Electrical Repair Trailer: IMG_0225 (Medium).JPG Dimensions appear similar to the aluminium one. The 1961 rebuild plate is of a standard format and size, so any rebuild plate would have the same dimensions and location of of securing holes
  12. I wonder why my trailer had olive drab paint in inaccessible areas and under the later glossy green if it was produced after 1945 as your post might suggest? Of course the other option which would explain all the conclusions drawn from these plates is that they are not actually the plates from this trailer...but are indeed from another Orme Evans produced 10cwt trailer of some type. At some time they have been removed and mixed up, as believe the previous owners had several trailers.
