Thanks for answering my question i have been looking to try and find any infomation regarding Bedford MW production with a view to trying to establish a more accurate method of dating factory production i own a 1940 MWD chassis number 12249 which if my reserch is correct was built in July 1940 all my infomation is collected from diffrent sources but i have nothing from the factory to conferm this infomation i also have Bedford MWR chassis number 42436 and at present the closest to a manufacturing date would be 1942 i would like to find any accurate infomation which could narrow this down

  8. Dont think you are too far out with your HT leads attached photo is the only one i have of an MWR engine i think it came from some photos pre D-day about water proofing although the parts book has the coil either mounted on the engine as you have it or mounted on the drivers side foot well depending on engine number .

  10. This was mentioned in the last MVT Normandy tour up date but if read the above correctly there is an exmption regarding military vehicles over 50 years old used for historical activites on page 11 paragraph 3 which seams to cover France ,Belgium, and Germany but not the Netherlands of course everything may change again when brexit finally happens
  11. Hi Thomas the side plate steel cover which gives access to the cam followers and push rods is a diffrent it has a large radius in the plate to allow the screened MWR distibutor to be fitted , i have ready to be fitted to my truck if you need a photo to work from
