  1. the round thing on the engine near starter is the fuel lift pump it is fitted with a manual primer to lift fuel up to filters and injector pump when bleeding. the cold start primer if its the sort i am thinking of is a tee shaped handle fitted usually below dashboard. By the way welcome to Forum
  2. I dont know for sure as i have never owned a TM but i would guess reservoir is under flap/ front grill. Filled up manually then pumped while trying to start and first running. Some were filled with methanol some ether cartridge. I think the 200 pumps refers to how many pumps befor reservioir/ cartridge was empty .The trucks i have had i have never used it no matter what the tempreture. If its going to go a drop of easy start (ether)in inlet manifold/aircleaner has sorted it
  3. there is a multitude of pallet deliver companies one i can recommend 45 quid 48 hr on you door step
  4. when in storage keep it out of sight. when out stay with it. Dont get paranoid about it nobody but you is reall y bothered
  5. it will earth through many things but will do them no good. Stop Cables/throttle cables/ fuel lines/all the bearings on the way to back axle/ even seen the old fashioned temp sender glow when trying to start. Much simpler just put a nice clean earth strap on
  6. Robin I know you asked the Question and i believe you know the answer even the most loved of relations should be allowed to go in peace when the time comes

  9. if all else fails back in at right angles to the mast with a tractor pull it with a chain hung high on the mast and tip it sideways dont worry you wont tip it over its CG is very low pack and make good terrain Let us know how you go on
  10. Looking at pictures virtually any tele handler woulds sort that out working a right angle to rear towing eye. Personal it would i suspect weigh more than 5 ton near 7.5 . But i dont know. what ever all is not lossed if all fails a medium sized tractor with rear lift arms and a decent chain with with shorten claw a bit at a time would turn it through 90 ndegrees then it just a straight forward pull. Ps my estimate on weight is based on a three. five ton hyster we ran over a weigh bridge and weighed 7.3 tons another tip i was given many many years ago was you will never raise a vehicle by digging a hole to put ii in

  14. What i am trying to get over is there is no victimization going on no need for paranoia common sense will win in the end who ever it was turned out to be a total jerk despite his expert advice
  15. I think the contention in this post is caused by the title " Fined for driving 25mph on an A roads "They were not. They were fined for careless driving with out due care and consideration to other road users and quite rightly so i think. People also think this is a new thing i can think of at least 3 other occasions when prosecutions have been brought under similar legislation local to were i live. One i know of very well was an old couple who used to live on the farm where i now live. Every sat morning they would go into the local town a distance of 12 miles shopping they never used to get out of fast tick over in 2nd gear in a ford classic. At that time the A63 was the main trunk road and it used to cause mayhem. After being stopped advised and cautioned many times the case was sent to Beverly magistrates who imposed an endorsement and 21s fine. This was enough to convince them they were now too old and past it to run the small holding and they retired.
  16. Despite what all may think they are not British yet nor likely to be for at least another 2 years. How long after that it takes for officialdom to turn back the clock rules regs i dread to think.
  17. any truck spring maker will knock them up for you.
  18. i have from been told from a friend of a friend that knows some one that heard a farmer has found a chain link and a scrap of aluminium buried in the hillside above the tunnel. They have come to a deal with RAF Cosford for an undisclosed amount to unearth the last ever dornier 17 that was escorting the train. Rumour has it it is in perfect condition but the paper work is not up to date so it will not be flying in the near future

  22. if you are simply trying to avoid MOT Plating and test to ride about going to shows No there is no way you can do it. Full stop but I suspect you already knew that And as somebody has said why would you not want to subject it to a ministry test if it was in good order
  23. later on the mini morris 1000 etc where fitted with nylon 1/8 tube simply pushed into rubber tube. I know not original but would get you up and running to be honest I would not have thought brass tube would have melted on manifold
