    State of the UK vehicle sales market

    Greed, Greed, Greed! At the end of the day something is only worth what someone is willing to pay no matter what anybody says or thinks! I bought my GPW 5 years ago for £2500 but it's got to be worth £15000 now right? don't think so. I keep seeing the same adverts coming up time and again for the same money and not being sold, what does that tell you? it isn't worth it is it! Just because you paid X amount of money for something doesn't mean you are going to get X back, you may get Z but more likely it will be F. I've had 5 military vehicles, lost a good deal of money on a couple but that's the nature of the game, nobody likes to loose money but I do this for a hobby not as an investment. If you have bought as an investment then thank's a lot guys, you have pretty much excluded any youngsters from owning anything other than a pushbike, forget getting a jeep to restore! Look at the jeep parts on ebay now, everybody thinks what they are selling is worth gold prices, with slogans like RARE and Getting harder to find, no they are not, but some people have very deep pockets and pay, then the next guy comes along and his has got to be worth that! I put my vehicles for sale on Ebay, the whole world can see it and pay what it's actually worth.

    Hi what show in oswestry? Gareth.
  9. OK, at last, job done, for those interested and for future reference the disc i was trying to remove is keyed on the shaft, it also has a boss that goes into the chassis, hope my pics will explain! Brute force and ignorance played a major part here, bits were pretty well seized together, had to spend £30 on a slogging spanner to get the rear nut off!
  10. Many thank's for your efforts Clive, much appreciated, yes I was hoping a parts diagram would help, maybe a manual is available? Will just have to keep at it, Regards, Gareth.
  11. Ok, stuck now need to remove these discs, one is steel the other is brass, 4 holes in them, 1 every quarter, 2 are tapped to take the long bolts, the other two are shallow and cannot see into them. There is no apparent clearance for them to pass over the threaded portion leading me to believe they may be screwed on, any ideas?
  12. thank's Clive, is your diagram for a later unit?, Regards, Gareth.
  13. Hi, am having trouble removing the draught eye unit from my FV2301a mk1 1/2 ton sankey, hopefully you guys can help! I have removed the 2 long bolts that stop it rotating and have removed the large 2 1/4" nut from the back. http://hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/album.php?albumid=735&attachmentid=92059 There are 2 discs behind the nut that rotate with the draught eye unit, I think I need to remove these, do I need a special tool? Are they threaded and need to be unscrewed? Is there a manual I can purchase or an EMER published? All help greatly appreciated, Gareth.
