  1. Maybe from something like an asphalt/tarmac batching plant. Easier, quicker and cheaper to just replace worn out tips of the mixer paddles
  2. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LEYLAND-DIESEL-RECOVERY-VEHICLE/173657502379?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140328180637%26meid%3D506c88459cc24ceaa80643fb18fd0118%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D2%26sd%3D253990565016%26itm%3D173657502379&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982
  3. I'm pretty sure Burnett & Hillman still supply Pirtek with adaptors.
  4. Ours was under the old Severn Bridge. We used a Fiat Allis FL5B and a Hamm DV8. Luckily we all passed before NAAFI break
  5. Was part of the CES for Foden Wreckers. (Supposed to be) used by recce mechs when winching at night. Search ebay for Bardic Lamp Battery Conversion Kit
  6. Some kind of liquid going through two "filters" before hitting some litmus type paper at the bottom?
  7. Would it be better if the photo is rotated 90 degrees to the left, ie vertical? Could it then be measuring something falling?
  8. Also this site may help: http://www.anti-aircraft.co.uk/restoration_No3Mk2radar.html although it doesn't seem to have been updated for a while
  9. That may well be true, we were Engineer support to 5 Airborne.
  10. As Richard said, just GS. We had 12KJ49 and 12KJ50 in the WKSP MT, used as runarounds for the stores section, or to ferry the ASM or OC some where. Great fun for a young spr, sitting in traffic and rocking from side to side as you revved the V8... I have a memory that there was some mod done to the front brakes, but can't remember the exact details. The gearboxes didn't last long (LT85?) and you would often hear one whining it's way around camp.
  11. Finally got round to scanning a few pics from Cyprus circa 1992 and Bosnia 1996 Volvo 4400 Cyprus 4400 and Haulamatic Cyprus Bosnia. Repairing the Hydrema again Whilst camped in this layby with CRRAVs(?) Most of our kit at work Home from home... Atlas 1404LC and D6 MT driver making sure the recce mechs won't be thirsty later in the day! parked up at a job site No idea... DROPS with TTTT loaded with our rig Hydrema and Atlas
