  1. I know of a few which have had towbars fitted.
  2. I think the other videos he has done may be of more interest. Especially the ones in the construction yard. Plenty of old CMP's, Jeeps, and a gantry Austin K6 to name a few.
  3. The film clip is now available on line as part of the BFI unlocking film heritage programme. Here is the link https://www.macearchive.org/films/atv-today-12091974-raf-cottesmore
  4. 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
  5. Have you tried Speedy cables? https://speedycables.com/speedometer-cables/
  6. Or until it is sold. Then the new keeper has to sorn or tax it!
  7. Hi Mark. I remember that weekend on the Ridgeway too! Good times!
  8. Is this helpfull ( currently on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BEDFORD-MK-TK-4WD-CHASSIS-CAB-/121790096235?hash=item1c5b41636b:g:TIsAAOSw9r1V-vy- )
  9. 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.
  10. The wood blocks are original fitment and yes , to protect the lenses.
  11. There was a thread about "Scotches " a while back in the Transporters & Wreckers (All Nations) section.
  12. A Dodge WC 52 pottering around Potten End near Berkhamsted at lunchtime today!
  13. 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!
  14. Cheers Richard, your help is much appreciated.
  15. 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
  16. Anyone have an idea what this loom is for? Currently on Ebay. Cheers, Chris
  17. 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.

    I was wondering if there were any celebrations to mark the 75th anniversary of Dunkirk this year? I thought we could all take our trucks to the beach, leave them there, and catch the ferry home :cool2:
  19. Hi Terrierman, Is it the all steel body you are after pictures for or the wooden body? The diagram looks like it might be the wooden variant. Ours is the steel type but I think there is a wooden one in Northampton.
  20. Fuel cans for use on boats are usefull when bench testing, especially with the quick release connectors and a lot safer than a pipe in an open jerrycan!
  21. It looks very similar but it is lacking the rectangular strip on the edge to attatch to the cupola side.
  22. Have you considered a SUMB? Portal axles and a nice flathead V8 engine. One on Ebay at the moment and they generally seem to be quite cheap at the moment. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/291309014115?_trksid=p11010.c100162.m2917&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140212122133%26meid%3D4c56c52443a3442a8773c3b64a2827e9%26pid%3D100162%26prg%3D20140212122133%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D141486735745/?ssPageName=ADME:B:WNA:GB:3160
