  1. Looking for some replacement tilt webbing for land rover hoods... probably more than exmoor or similar co. would be happy to supply me with as i am manufacturing Fire Water Rot Proof Non Shrink Hoods and have run down my old supply of heavy duty natural webbing - old supplier seems to have vanished. The webbing is 25mm, looks like rope edge and is of course that lovely orange-beige colour.... god knows why but being repro.. i'd want to keep the colours and weave as close as possible to original land rover hood webbing colour. My Hoods are made out plain weave POLY COTTON FWR Fire Water Rot proof long life canvas and hoods are NON SHRINK yet breathable. Any suggestions on the webbing / strapping would be greatly appreciated. Kindest. Matt ) Sussex info@moorcroftengineering.com

  3. Not sure but I am selling a Snatch radio system charging unit. The unit is mounted behind the driver and out of 60 Snatch Landrovers I have yet to see another one. Near mint condition.
  4. great replies. i reckon my pod and associated kit was probably a good buy after all then. £99. on the issue with the bulkhead, wondering if the composite bulkhead replaced or actually fitted onto a steel bulkhead? have a look at my profile pics where there's an exploded view from the manufacturer. it seems all it needs is a wolf chassis, V8, (as is Mk1), rad, wings and seats. i have already snaffled a V8 3.5 carb type rover lump for £200, have seats, have at least one wing, have a spare rad, probably a bumper in the workshop somewhere too. fairly mint condition interior it seems. looking around some look much more tired and worn. all the power and bowman mounts are in excellent condition too. salisbury axles might be tricky. common on the rear of a series III FFR but not so on defender i imagine. matt
  5. great replies. thanks well mine has two composite bulkheads, the windscreen, the cab floor, kevlar foot wells and lower dash. also the gear box tunnel cover and kevlar top plate. also there's a long thick galv bar almost the width of the landy which looks to be a foreward supporting bracket of some description. The A bar? it's a pod so everything bar the bowman sets, chassis, engine and defender wings, grill and bonnet. it has the DC charging unit for radio batteries and the 24 volt / 12 volt breakout unit. i noticed the pod has eberspacher branding on the air con. wondering if it was an eber hydronic heater like on my FFR and a air con? were the seats mounted on a standard landy seat box or on frames? many thanks matt
  6. [h=2][/h] Has anyone out there got any images of schematics of wiring, radio and vehicle kit for the snatch landrover? currently rebuilding two which seem to have most of the kit bar chassis and engine (Wolf type heavy duty ?), windscreen for one of them, windscreen cages and various bits and bobs. one has the radio charging unit and both have the power distribution boxes. also interested to know what sort of air con should be connected to the rather chonked through pipes either side of the front of the body feeding inside. we heard that the body with doors weighs around 1.2 KG. Does this sound correct? The vehicle as manufactures by NP Aerospace is listed as being 4 Tonne, although i think this relates to the '4.0 tonne GVW RICARDO Land Rover Defender chassis' and the vehicle must be around 300 KG. Did the Snatch have uprated axles and springs in addition to the heavy duty chassis? Also there looks to be an additional dashboard unit below the dash running almost the length. Any ideas what this might be? And batteries. where were they stored? very many thanks in advance. Looks like we've got some work cut out for us! Matt Carey Brede.

  8. Does anyone know of any incidence of powered MV steps whether electric or hydraulic, in the style of lowering down on a pivot tilt mechanism from an MV body, MV roof or such like? thanks Matty D
  9. yep. 2.5 tonne empty sounds about right. I had a look at the Milweb ads and its the right sort of thing, but i'm pretty sure i'll grab one of the witham ones. Plus, i don't really want a TM. Apparently not as reliable as the MJ and, well, not an MJ, MJ's just have that classic look. Before everything went square. One thing thats really worth doing is what an acquaintance of mine did.. Howard with the orange MJ camper.. its all over the internet, if you search Bedford MJ under google images, it pops up. Also, it can be found under http://www.wheresbob.co.uk althogh the site doesn't have many images. He purchased the truck modified but basically it has a Fibreglass body from a BT lorry on the back. It looks a lot lighter than the Army bodies.. Paint it green and you're onto a winner.
  10. Thanks for the input fellas. Will check out the for sale ad. Nice one Richard for your input and clarification also. Currently reading the VOSA operators booklet for the o license. Managed to find commercial insurance for the vehicle with it being over 20 years old. road tax isn't too dear either and if i'm lucky i'll get that reduced for low emissions when i make the conversion. Tachograph looks sorted too, as i've been given info on a place that fits and calibrates them in Pevensey. Not sure the cost to buy/fit though. So, interesting about the weight of the box body... What do they weigh? couple of tonnes? That would be tricky at full or even 3/4 extension, which you might need to clear the stabilisers. Pretty sure the Atlas is something like 3/4 or 1 tonne at full out, and increasing as crane booms are wound in etc. Anyone put a grab on the end of one of these yet? Would be incredibly handy for loose materials and timber. Matt
  11. Hehe. love it.i like the sound of that!# does sound a bit mental actually.. imagine the sail effect in the wind.. drag lines and all. Hmm. Not seen loggy drivers van body.. will see if i can find a pic somewhere.
  12. Thanks for the many replies all... only just logged in to my thread again... Totally answered my question! I plan to purchase one of the witham ones with the atlas crane as shown... and it seems as though the bed has been pushed back. The reason I want to know if the tilt will fit is simply.... shows and covering the load. Firstly, I want to use the crane on the vehicle for my business... Secondly, I want lift a simple kitchen kit and sleeping kit into the load area for shows.. Finally, I like the idea of modifying the hood sticks with box section steel and a simply 6 way strap (octopus) for lifting off the tilt and hood sticks with the crane in one go.. If I can actually make this work (overcome issues with fastening to hood sticks through the tilt at the top corner of each rib), then I picture modding the stick base recess at the top hood stick mounting point of the drop sides to an open flange which may assist, like a flared guide, the return of the sticks back to the covered position. Might just be a case where a second person is needed to guide the sticks back into the sides. So, in a nutshell, I will use the truck for different situations and modify it so it can be as flexible as possible, of course, with one of my 100% plat oil veg kits and extra plant oil tanks. For all this to work I would need to source some drop sides but I really like the idea of lifting the complete roof off of the load, Royal Engineers style, which in my case would be preventing the load from getting wet, Or nicked for that matter. Cheers matt
  13. Does anyone know whether the bed/ load area of the Mili MJ Cargo was pushed back or shortened when the crane was fitted behind the cab? If it was shortened, was the front 'bay' shortened, thus causing the tilt to not fit? ta matt
  14. a bit of NATO green should sort that! oooh, power steering!
