  1. Does this run a torque tube to the transfer box?
  2. 1506 and 1508 not shown/used, perhaps it should read 1329 as these were 550 gallon fuel tanker. Interesting picture, no booms to refueller, although I don't know when they were/were not used. That looks like 1308 on the door, maybe an error when being marked up pre invasion, presumably the picture was taken in '44 or later?
  3. From quoted book Type 1307 = 1000 Gallons fuel tanker Type 1308 = 2000 Gallons fuel tanker Type 2400 = Petrol and oil refuellers Type 1306 = Mobile operations room
  4. @rewdcoA few questions, What is the soft iron or copper wire for (emergency) HT lead? Where does the supplementary triangular toolkit get stowed? In that triangular toolbox, when stowed, what is the item on the right, a funnel? I'm an electrician but I've never seen insulating tape in a tin, presumably this is a cloth backed bitumas type of tape? Interesting that the fixing for the large toolbox is called a pin, secured with a nut and washer! As above, great attention to detail putting that lot together, thank you for sharing with us
  5. Is this the same as you are looking for? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fordson-Thames-Flathead-V8-Rear-Engine-Support-Mounting-NEW-GENUINE/274403288051?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  6. Where did they carry all of this kit as looks to be quite a lot? What are the leather straps for, saddle bags/panniers?
  7. Are these a 4 speed gearbox? I have a 1947/48 Fordson Commercial Vehicles spare parts list for the 7V, the exploded view of the gearbox looks very similar to the one posted above, albeit without pto, has a blank plate/gasket shown though, and a different gearstick. Its whole part number is for the ET6 range as released in 1947, so another possible avenue for a replacement gearbox? I think the ET6 latterly became a home for the 4D engine so possibly where the adaptor plate came from originally?
  8. That is a quite staggering amount of abandoned vehicles/equipment. The Wehrmacht must have had more Morris Commercials and Bedfords on charge than anyone else in June 1940! A lot of the trucks, and presumably motorcycles, were impressed into new ownership, but what happened to the tanks/carriers? Were these repurposed as per French tanks? Herr Steptoe must have been rubbing his hands together with all that scrap metal, for their war effort! What a gift horse
  9. Villiers of some description I reckon, going by the fan/pulley shroud http://www.historywebsite.co.uk/Museum/Engineering/Villiers/Villiers9.htm
  10. Well its a Leyland, enlarging the top picture tells you that. What about either an S3.30-hp or an S4.36-hp motor?
  11. I reckon so, good view of radiator at 39 seconds https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87-wO4InhOE
  12. Industrial Power Products is a part of the Ford organisation that sells power trains for oem builders to use in whatever they built. Based on standard production engines found in their more usual products. https://everythingaboutboats.org/ford-industrial-power-uk/
  13. It is Robert H Crawford of Frithville, Lincs. See here for a few pics https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GGRV_enGB751GB751&q=robert+crawford+frithville+lincs+tank&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjsyJiEvOLoAhWkZxUIHbveBvoQsAR6BAgKEAE&biw=1292&bih=665 Also other Sherman conversions if you click on images and follow links
  14. Not sure if this is going to work or even if these have been on here, but came across these the other day, somehow! https://www.facebook.com/pg/bbctheoneshow/photos/?tab=album&album_id=10154057120722696
  15. Not the same as the "tracing paper" of school days by any chance?
