  1. Nuther nice find at the Beaulieu autojumble, I have a few of these but this one is dated 1940 and will be the one used on my MW
  2. Hi Richard yes good to see you too I'll try to take some better pics tomorrow in daylight looks like your pics are of the fibre type.
  3. This one is steel but there were fibre ones as well not sure if the fibre type replaced the steel ones or wether they were both produced at the same time, I suppose there is more chance of creating a spark with the steel version !
  4. A long but very rewarding day that started at 5.30 am with a trip up to the Dallas dig out then on to the vintage/ 4x4 sale at the Newbury showground where this little gem fell into my possession Yes it's the elusive Bedford MW 15cwt dipstick for the petrol tank, think I'll have some reproductions made 😁
  5. I have two 1940 dated jacks both had original light green paint underneath dark olive drab, the green original paint looks the Same shade as Morris commercial engine paint ( there is a crazy expensive one on evil pay at the mo ) as I didn't like that colour I've gone for Morris minor engine green enamel Traces of the original green paint can be seen on my spare jack this will be left in its original condition. I've had a number of these jacks non of them were black.
  6. An enjoyable afternoon spent tinkering with the MW repainted one of the jacks and replaced the old shovel with a 39 dated example and swapped out the wire cutter for a pair of 1940 ones. I know I know the greens too dark but I don't care I like that colour so that's the colour it's gonna be 😁
  7. Thanks for the update Baz I'm sure we all appreciate the hard work that goes into a project like this . Cheers J.
  8. Hi Baz Any news/updates on the tracgrips still need four for my MW. RR.
  9. SOLD ! SOLD ! SOLD ! if there's enough interest I'll get some more cut folks 😎 Special new years offer £50 can bring to Dallas tomorrow or Stoneleigh maybe even Malvern 😎
  10. Have a few of these NOS. Starter armatures thought they may be Bedford but not sure They are in good condition just the odd bit of surface rust part number LV6/MT4 2920-99 808 4127
  11. Special new years offer £50 can bring to Dallas tomorrow or Stoneleigh maybe even Malvern 😎
  12. Last pair of early mesh panels, laser cut to original spec as per pic, please note these are just the mesh panels not the complete engine side panel £ 60 plus p&p
  13. 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.
  14. 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 😁
  15. 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.
  16. Yep Ensign Universal picked them up at the Netly marsh autojumble, looked quite chunky before fitting but look ok on the wheels.
  17. Bit more loosely lamped together to test fit all those spacers etc Then a bit of tank fettling
  18. 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 !
  19. Hi Chris frame No. Is 1289# will probably go for the later type carrier as it's handy to have panniers, yes need to get some new rubber stops 😁
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. Thanks Ron Will leave as is for the mo until I am sure it should be flat then I'll give it a beating 😁
  23. 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.
