  1. cheers....wonder what the weight difference versus buoyancy was
  2. Another interesting one http://www.lancers.org.au/site/Stockton_Bight.asp What turrets did they put on the LVT(a)4s?
  3. A bit of both as first step is rocks and nuts or something inside, to get rid of the loose stuff. Second is acid treatment Last is the sealant Each step is supposed to be hold in you arms and shake it or slosh it vigorously..... pretty sure the novelty would wear thin pretty quickly. I figure this would work on bigger tanks also especially with the tilt type mixers
  4. I have to reline a motorcycle fueltank and my plan is to ratchet strap it to the bowl for the 3 step process
  5. Also your builder mate will be happy as it will clean the mixing bowl :cool2: We used to chuck chain in ours to clean the bowl with light stone
  6. That's interesting. I was taught yonks ago a tappet spanner was twice the length of a normal spanner with a normal spanner being 10 times the jaw width. All the online definitions quote the same thing for a spanner as a tappet spanner i.e. "[n] a wrench having parallel jaws at fixed separation (often on both ends of the handle)". I guess the English language is being watered down......... Is a bastard file still one or is it just a naughty file now
  7. Would be somewhat rare in Australia as 152 purchased in 1955. If this one is from 1953 it is perhaps from the failed trials http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/morisset/cars-vans-utes/ex-army-1953-humber-fv-1600-4x4/1122613417?utm_source=criteo&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=LF- http://anzacsteel.hobbyvista.com/othervehicles/humbertruckph_1.htm
