    Bedford MW fuel taps

    These taps were also used on some outboard motors. Corks are available from Sheridan marine. https://www.sheridanmarine.com/product/british-seagull-outboard-metal-fuel-tap-overhaul-kit I seem to remember someone replacing the corks with nitrile O rings mounted on brass spacers. Chris

    I hate to be a pedant but it looks like the arm on the left side is mounted upsidedown compared to the right hand one.

    Bedford MW head gasket

    I have the spanner for the head but one problem is not all the bolts are fully accessible to pull on the spanner. Some you can only push the spanner which I feel would give a variation in tightness!

    Bedford MW head gasket

    Hi all, I have just had the head skimmed on my Bedford MW after a head gasket failure, and reading the manual there are no torque settings for the head bolts. The book says just to tighten the bolts! Anyone got a suitable ball park figure for the torque settings? Cheers
  13. Anyone have an idea what this loom is for? Currently on Ebay. Cheers, Chris

    Two truck cabs looking similar to a Forson WOT8, one with no roof, on a trailer behind a dropside van going clockwise round the M25 near Heathrow yesterday about 2:30. Wheelarches and the missing roof in the back of the dropside.
