  1. nice find. he seemed quite pleased with it
  2. i'll dig them out and have a shufti to see what condition they are in. i've also got a load of abbott shell cases and a few other bits
  3. all wrecks belong to and are administered by the defence training estate in warminster. they seem ok wioth the idea of selling them but they have to be offered for tender through normal mod disposals. if the wrecks are on an old range the area has to be cleared by eod first
  4. i had stuck plates on my centurion and managed to free them off with a steam cleaner
  5. there are plans afoot to remove all the hulks from mod land.
  6. the mk1 is worth saving but just make sure you have a lot of spare time on your hands before you tackle it
  7. lol the ships sails tomorrow. was not the message i wanted to hear tonight
  8. you have my respect. i can stick two bits of steel together but anything electric would be unlikely to end well for me i'm glad you persevered and overcame the problems. one more step toward the big day!
  9. i think you'll be surprised how easy it is, the only requirement is shiny steel surfaces . if you get it clean it will solder
  10. have you thought of doing the repair yourself using solder. it's really easy, i did one of my cromwell tanks and didn't struggle. just make sure the area is really clean. i used normal plumbing joint solder laid on top of the hole then applied heat with a blow lamp although you might want to use a large soldering iron as sometimes the flame made the joint dirty if it take take quickly enough
  11. i'll go with richards thoughts on small tractor final drives. whatever it is i'll bet you're glad you got hold of them
  12. always nice to meet a fellow lunatic. (there's not enough of us about). glad you got the final drives sorted, it looked to be the last major piece of the puzzle, apart from the tracks that is. keep up the good work. when you've finished we'll have a chat about something bigger
  13. i went up on saturday when the range was closed for a shufti and found the parts chris has already shown as well as a nice piece of side armour still with the idler attached.
  14. jon these are muff couplings and propshaft for your steering box, at least i think they are, if memory serves me right.( it's been a long time since i messed around with 432 series)
  15. if i had a pound for everytime someone said that to me, i'd still be skint if i can help out i will and good for you for taking on such an ambitious project and making it happen. not many about that could do it, myself included
  16. no worries i'll dig them out tomorrow and put up a pic, if you need them you can have them in exchange for a crate of foster's
  17. really coming along now john, excellent work. i think i might have the steering box to engine propshaft somewhere as well as the half moons that connect it to the final drive. let me know if you need them and i will have a shufti for them.
  18. i'm sure we'll get to meet up, i might even come over to your workshop for a mooch one day.
  19. i'd love too but i still owe the guy a chunk of money so it's still sitting in his yard but it won't be long before i can scratch the rest up. to be honest it was an impulse buy as i bumped into the seller at malvern and made a bid on the spot. he accepted and i then had to come up with the money from somewhere the day i sold it i vowed to buy it back one day if it ever became available.
  20. The T16 restoration story has had a happy ending. I have just bought it back from the dealer i sold it to 6 years ago
  21. thanks mick. my dingo leaks like a sieve so those part numbers will come in handy. cheers
  22. took these pics from a mates dingo
