    Hi Col Both myself and Bill found our vehicles by word of mouth, sometimes it's a chance conversation that can lead to you finding that elusive vehicle. Keep looking it's out there somewhere, if you don't find anything by next summer I could add you to my insurance and you could take the champ thing to a couple of shows if you feel brave enough 😁 Must catch up over Christmas J.

    Bedford MWD restoration

    Having sorted the track rods out took it for a quick spin without the canvas to check all ok the other wkend. Noted a dull knock / rattle on tickover 😣 suspected loose crank pulley ! ! Yep that's what it turned out to be . So off with the front of the truck and yes even though we drifted the pulley on when the engine was rebuilt it was loose in fact loose enough for me to remove it by hand ! Luckily the old OY engine had a decent one which I managed to remove and swap over. Back together by end of day with peace of mind knowing it should be sorted, engine running nice and quiet again 😁

    As an antidote to yesterday's Xmas shopping expedition, spent the afternoon in't shed fitting "new" early type rims to the sidelights and split pins to the track rod end nuts now they are sorted 😁 next job is to decide what div markings to put on the truck.

    Yep Ensign Universal picked them up at the Netly marsh autojumble, looked quite chunky before fitting but look ok on the wheels.

    Yes Jan taped up all the spindle ends etc with lots of layers of heavy duty duct tape though I will of course strip everything for thorough cleaning with new wheel bearings as the old ones are worn out 😁 BTW Thanks for posting my full frame number something I didn't want to do !

    Doh ! Sorry Ron I mistook the part you were referring to 🙃 I can see now the part that needs to be sorted, I'm finalising my parts wanted list, need new fork spindles, nuts and friction discs are just a few bits needed just to start with.

    Lashed a few bits together this eve just to see how it goes together, there are extra holes in the rear mudgaurd and I had some other stays which seem to match up with them.

    Couldn't find any seat springs at the wkend so cleaned up the old ones which look the biz as modern replacements don't seem to be tapered as per originals.
