  1. Citroman. Thanks for the info, apologies for late reply but just out of hospital. Again thanks Seoirse
  2. Hi. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can lay my hands on a bonnet for a 1969 AMGC M49 Fuel Tanker.
  3. Any assiistance would be appreciated, photos or descriptions of what was painted / chromed or brassoed differently for ceremonial purposes. Has anyone any photos of the 25 used as a gun carriage in funeral trim
  4. I have a 25pdr I intend to restore as a ceremonial gun. Have you come across any guns in ceremonial order. I am looking for a photo to base my gun on. Seoirse
  5. Hi all. I have just taken posession of a 1943 25 Pdr Artillery Gun. I have been after one for years and finally got it. It is stripped down for restoration. I wont be tackling the restoration until late next year but I have a few questions. I am thinking of restoring the gun as a ceremonial piece, can anyone advise how a ceremonial gun looks and what is the correct colour. (Sorry to the radio section as I originaly posted it on their forum by mistake)

By the way Clive I have not forgotton the Pig, Piglet or Shorland
  7. Well greetings from the little island west of the "mainland". Good to meet another person with the green disease.
  8. Clive Thanks, will check and get back to you on the ram or pump. No major hurry with the pipe. If you have one let me know and I will figure out a way to get it. I will be at Stonleigh in Jan Seoirse
  9. Clive Thanks for the help to date. I have ordered in a full set of brake hoses and will start on the brakes as soon as they arrive. I will have a look at the points and if needed change them. Later I will look at changing the system. Can you please give me a copy of the CES for a Mk 2 also a copy of the unofficial CES document you have. Can you also advise at what time the "solid" wings and perspex was fitted to my pig. I have a lot of the military equipment for the vehicle although I think my body armour may be too early. I have about 10 sets of the early (M59 Pattern) body armour. I also have 20 of the Mk iv Turtle shell helmets with visor. Too early I think I may need to change the exhaust pipe that goes into the manifold. I was under the vehicle today and I saw that it is fairly crumpled near the bend, that's why it may not be sitting square on the manifold. Do you know of anyone who has one. I also have a leak with the Left piston for opening and closing the visor. i think it may be a seal. Is there a seal available or do I have to replace the piston. Seoirse
  10. Clive Thanks for the infor on the hoses. I am going to change all of them. Safer in the long run. Seoirse

  12. Clive Thanks for the info. Went out and had a look for the Engine Modification Sheet Holder. There is none nor is there a bracket for holding one. I did check another plate on the top of the engine. It said the engine was overhauled by 34 Base on the 13 Jun 90 and the liners were done. Is the info anywhere else I need to replace the rubber brake pipes as one at the rear has broken. Can you give me the name of a supplier on your side of the pond and of course the type and number of pipes I will need. I want to replace all the rubber pipes because if one has burst then the rest may and I done need a vehicle without . That's all at the moment
  13. Clive. Q1 Where do I look for that. I want to do a full service on the vehicle and the USER manual has not arrived yet. Q2 What oils etc do I need for the job Q3 What spark plugs do you suggest (I have read a lot on the forum but not sure what to use). What points do you suggest. Any other suggestions welcome
