  3. Hi Guy no, Tim owns the book & I'm hoping he's going to look through them all for me ?
  4. I've now contacted the person that originally posted this photo on my restoration thread but he cant remember which book it came from but he thinks its a Lancaster book as he resides in 'Bomber Country'
  5. Hi Larry yes I've seen that one at the museum, thats where the photo came from but they cant remember which book it came from.
  6. A few photos of progress so far, most the parts are now fitted to the repaired chassis frame including to correct 1942 Petter PU8 engine which is partly stripped down so that the camshaft can be modified in order to fit the clutch as I was unable to find an original camshaft. The roof is off the postwar trailer which is now no more as I've 'broken it' for parts, the complete roof assembly has been used as it almost identical to the original except there's no hatch in the top so that will have to be fabricated later.
  7. Found the correct parking brake lever in my scrap pile, just needs straightening.
  8. The 4 corner legs were bent, corroded & broken so lots of heat & hammering & eventually the old legs came out, next is drilling out the broken screw threads.
  9. I'm also going to use the old mudguards from the AFS pump trailer, just sizing them up with a brick on top of the tyre so we can make the new brackets.
  10. Making a fresh start on this project after over 2 years away from it due to poor health, the axle, brakes & wheels were totally rotted out & U/S due to it sitting in a scrap yard for 40+ years so I had to find a replacement. What I found was a WW2 AFS pump trailer which although only had 3 stud wheels the size & style (easicleans) are the same & once the hub caps are fitted you wont know the difference, the axle had to be made narrower by 12" so that was cut & welded with a solid steel strengthener bar fitted in the centre, the spring brackets & brake pivot also had to be cut off & welded in their new positions
  11. Making a fresh start on this project after over 2 years away from it due to poor health, nice easy job silver soldering the new brass nipples onto the new brass water hose connectors, 28 of them to do in total.
  12. Hi Clive that's what I've done but it makes the thread look untidy, cheers mate.
  13. Hi Guy didn't work mate, I had already tried the edit way but it wont let you delete a whole post
