    Found one.
  3. ferret headlamp surround wanted

    Will have a look in shed later, sure I have one or two in there
  4. Post 1997 Licence

    Ferret isn't a goods vehicle. I think that you will need to upgrade your licence to include C1 category which will allow you to drive up to 7500kg vehicles, then you should be ok.
  5. Post 1997 Licence

    I'd say not, believe max weight for post 97 licence is 3500kg, so pre 1960 or not makes no difference.
  6. Loose battery clamps

    The problem lies with the split in the clamp. As it's been tightened over time when the top bolt is tight, both halves butt upto each other, but the clamp is still slack. Remove the clamp bolt and run a slitting disc through the groove to make it wider, reassemble and tighten up.
  7. Identification please.

    Thought that too, but then why would it need multiple grooves.
  8. Identification please.

    Does anyone know what this tool would've been used for. Cheers Simon
  9. Martian p/s filter and quick release fitting from tank

    Looking in a different ISPL we get more part numbers. For the filter 2530-99-800-3707, the element 2940-99-842-5926. Coupling top half 4730-99-411-0821, bottom part 2530-99-800-0439, complete unit 4730-99-411-0856. Alsoo gives the top part as AVA56E. And as Richard says also fits Saracen.
  10. Martian p/s filter and quick release fitting from tank

    Chris, filter complete is LV6/MT1/AU/LK/30319, element only LV6/MT9/AU/LK/MF56A. The Avery coupling complete is LV6/MT9/AU/LK/AVA51E, LV6/MT9/AU/LK/AVA54E is the bottom half and the top part that fits to the tank is LV6/MT9/AU/LK/AVA1153E, the aluminium union that holds them together is LV6/MT9/AU/LK/AVA62E. I've not found an old tank yet with a top coupling that reseals, though the bottom half of the coupling always seem ok. Bottom connectors also available at Green Machine Surplus. Simon
  11. By order of the wife! Part 2

    Richard, I had to get another shed to put stuff in which meant she lost a bit more garden!
  12. Mili hip ring steelwork and old fusty canvas, foam inner long crumbled away. £50 including UK postage.
  13. By order of the wife! Part 2

    May be wrong but believe to be Meteor.
  14. By order of the wife! Part 1

    Clearout of all sorts, don't know what most of it fits, accumulation of odds n sods. Parts with DMC 9 AHY. Any use to you, make me an offer.
  15. Chris, how much of the original steering sysrem is on the truck? Guessing the Cummins pump might be a ZF, and possibly used ATF. Don't know if the Martian steering jack seals would like it.
