  1. Pioneers is the one I was thinking of how you get it to be road worthy with no front brakes, I presumed there was a class it came under that allowed it to be used on the road with no frount brakes.
  2. Does anyone know when you can use a vehicle over 3.5 ton with no frount brakes fitted? Or any class of vehicle that exampts you from having them which is powered by a internal combustion engine? this is so you can use the vehicle on uk roads.
  3. Hi went to look at this today it is a bmk-150 not the bmk-150m which is the twin engine diesal version which also weighs more 3.8 ton the bmk-150 as in picture has 2 flat head six cylinder petrol engines in it. weight of the bmk-150 is 2.5 ton with no brakes on the retractable road wheels need some thing large to stop it in military use.
  4. I think Adrian should be writing the books !
  5. It certainly looks like a radial Sherman all the rear top deck looks correct and the rear plate has the cut out for the cranking handle (round rod with a pin through it) do you have a picture of the cutaway that is on the rear plate that you say is associated with radials. Grizzly cast hull Sherman's do have a scalped out section on the rear centre top. why I do not know?
  6. Hi was wondering the view of at what point a m51 becomes another model ie if the turret and gun is changed to a 76mm is it then it should be called a a m4a1 76 hvss? (That's if it was a radial) can it now be called for simplisty a m4 Sherman which after all it was before Israeli got hold of it and changed it from its war time guise. i think it is excepted that the engine does not mater as I haven't heard the m4 Sherman's that are now running the vt8-460 cummins being referred to as a super Sherman!. i have also heard that a m51 should be restored to a m51 as that is what it is but I point out that is not what it is as it was changed in to that and going alone that line to restore to original should be how it left the production line?
  7. Hi so it might be ok if he gets a civi trailer for the 1/2 track will have to watch weights as only 40 ton gcw. thanks for the info
  8.

  12. Hi does anyone know of a company? or some one that does brake shoe grinding in the uk. or has any one got a brake shoe grinder for sale. have been looking at the Ammco 890 machine but I can only find in the USA for sale. the shoes I need doing are 9 inch thanks mark
  13. Nearest I can think of is 1/2" 18 tpi uns (unified special) used for special purposes is it a tapper thread or is it a flanged plug?
  14. Hi thanks Alastair for the link I don't know if it's the angle of the picture but looks like they removed the cheese wedge turret counter weights.
