  1. You Have in a very arse about face way answered the original posters question. No as a vehicle collector you aint got a cat in hells chance of owning and running an ex army man unless you have a degree in computer science and at least £1500 in equipment and some contacts to people in the Know. One question If i bought a 4*4 man ex Mod could i strip it out and make it run turn of key with out out paying my life savings to Rhienmettall
  2. to the rear of cab n/s next to master switch you have to take steel battry box lid of to get at battries
  3. Bit more fuel on the fire I am willing to accept this is a Diamond T and the illusion at the front end is caused by shadow camera angle etc. Indeed i think it is the only answer. So you guys out there have identified the tank i believe. So could this have been a private civilian company picking up a tank to take it to the North east were many where cut up. i know many of the civilian used cobbled up trailers made from ex mod parts
  4. from memory 40 yrs ago when i owned a civilian crusader it was the same cylinder as fitted to a land rover dont know which one. about 3 years ago seals went on our Foden EKA i went to a local dealer in ex mod landrovers he passed me a cardboard box full of rubber seals told me to pick which i wanted. and leave something in tea box. all where landrover master cylinder/slave seals and dust covers
  5. couple of more suggestions. How about Scammell 100 or one of those six wheeler Guy artillery tractors
  6. think you will agree its an antar its the date thats wrong
  7. 100% that truck is not a diamond T indeed if i would go for Antar i question the date
  8. eu.perkins.com/parts/online‎ will be able to supply most parts filters gaskets etc any local commercial motor factor one common problem i have over the years is water pumps both on ex mod and civilian people ask about £500 S/H or new we had a company rebuild them 48hour turn around less than £120 ‎
  9. any body who is an agent for Perkins engines as thats who made it.Was fitted in many brands of commercials they will be able to get parts

  14. Rolling radius of tyres eg centre of hub to top of tyre = ? wheel base believe = 3940 mm ? centre front axle to front bumper overhang believe = 1314 mm ? centre front axle to rearmost of cab = ? centre rear axle to back of rear spring hanger = ? Chassis height from floor = ? say near middle of truck Chassis depth chassis width is chassis top flange straight back to front /parallel side to side from cab to rear one last ask when looking from side is top of rear wheel above/ below top of chassis rail Really would be a big help if anyone could advise on these thanks in advance Steve I am hoping to convert to a small/medium recovery /winching vehicle but with a bit of a difference to the run of the mill
  15. Hi can any body help me I am after dimensions for a Leyland/daf 244 have trawled the internet but apart from overall width length and height I have drawn a blank from all my usual sources. I will be purchasing one later on this year and hoping to get a head start on the piece of kit that I hope to fit

    DO 17 raising

    almost six years since this happened is everbody convinced this was a worthwhile project or an absolute waste of hard earned publicly donated cash
  17. to be honest I thought it was ideal at 2200 rpm but I only used mine for 18 months working on recovery
  18. Posted Saturday at 06:14 PM Thanks for your reply’s. yes the vehicle is up and running and no noise when you depress the brake pedal Every body seems to be overlooking the fact there is no noise when pressing pedal so I would suggest no air getting to it
  19. is the vehicle up and running or stood. does pedal make any noises when you press it.
  20. Don't forget you only have a short while to get new quilts as them continental ones stop working after 29th march l
  21. I assume if you have to ask you might get someone else to do it
  22. on leaving school my dad took me and a lad who worked for us to the army and navy stores in Goole to get some work boots. I bought a pair of unissued pair of leather soled hob nailed boots for 8 shillings john bought a pair of US issued rubber soled boots that looked wellie length for 5 shillings next day we cut about 8 inch of Johns boots with angle grinder he was still wearing them years later. mine fell to bits with in a month soaking up oil. Needless to say dad gave me a ten bob note and told me to go buy 2 pair like johns this was about 1970
  23. seem to remember but not 100% sure in front of steer box on depth of chassis and believe some digits obscured by that big plate with two holes in also on a riveted plate under passenger side wheel arch on chassis although this barely readable 40 years ago
