  1. Fordson standard tractor

    Pictures please. See "Fordson Model N 1929-45" and "Fordson Model N Miscellany 1929-45" By Allan T Condie publications
  2. '36 Fordson pick up

    Paul Becks(as was) 1933 short rad van with large doors, straight bumper and running boards, from the first batch I believe. My source Ford Model Y by Sam Roberts
  3. '36 Fordson pick up

    I don't think it is a cut down Fordson Y type van body as long rad vans did not have a front bumper or running boards or wind down door glass
  4. '36 Fordson pick up

    Ford Model Y I reckon, with an 8HP engine (RAC Rating) as built 1932 to 1937. Looks to be a cut down Fordor
  5. Fade is coming to visit

    Unfortunately the D Day museum in Southsea, Portsmouth is closed for refurbishment, reopening in the spring of 2018. See here http://www.ddaymuseum.co.uk/
  6. WANTED - Emergency Stop Button Assy

    Almost definitely 240/440v switchgear/control gear. Nearest I could find to this is postwar MEM. It is a similar colour grey and only has two fixings to hold the cover on. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MEM-1-CSU-L-Stop-Push-Button-Vintage-MADE-in-ENGLAND-Cast-Iron/252759931822?hash=item3ad9aa7bae:g:tNIAAOSwnHZYcS-N
  7. Caterpillar ?? in the woods

    I managed to work out it was a Fowler FD3 from the track plate design/style and then came across this image when doing a google search https://www.flickr.com/photos/roystonvasey/4496629524
  8. I take it the 55Kv generator trailer is as rare as rocking horse stuff! Is it similar to the murex one? I cannot find any pictures after a, brief, online search.
  9. Yep that's the one. In my defence I could only read TERRY! That must be a. little, bit easier than dismantling the spring albeit still not that easy.
  10. A few questions about both trailers/tools- 1, What is the Admiralty pattern object, and what is it for? 2, What is the unusual, to me, G cramp type object for? 3, What electrical items do they use these trailers/tools to repair? 4. Where do they get their power from? Thanks in advance
  11. Morris commercial C4

    Out of curiosity is there a need to have this drive shaft balanced? What sort of revs are required to run the generator or does the generator run at? or do the flange couplings take care of this? Do they(flange couplings) have a rubber component?
  12. RE: British Rations

    There must be room for a Servant or Batman in the officers ration pack, to cook his meals :whistle:
  13. Brass Screw Tops for Old Petrol Tins

    See here, seller has two http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/pratts-2-gallon-petrol-can-brass-cap-vintage-garage-automobilia-/112197062878?hash=item1a1f7750de:g:6N8AAOSwo4pYIIZU
  14. Gaz 66

    You could try Power Components at Westbourne, had a starter motor and dynamo rebuilt there, albeit for a tractor. Telephone number is 01243 378460, don't take a large vehicle as not easy to get in or out of.
  15. Fordson industrial parts

    Not too sure if this is quite what you are looking for as industrials normaly had a jaw similar to MOD type, incomplete though http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=302052817730#ht_500wt_1288 scroll through the photos to see rear end for height adjustable hitch picture http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Barn-find-Standard-Fordson-N-tractor-/152184856904?hash=item236eeca148:g:UVQAAOSwXeJXfn~S For exhaust and other parts try this person, as Cox and Turner Engineering, they do a lot of parts for F's and N's http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/coxie99/m.html?item=381720054096&hash=item58e049c950%3Ag%3AIJ0AAOSwoJZXSpBu&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
