    Engine Paint colour

    The rebuild colour changed to light blue probably in the late 50's or early 60's. In the thread I refered to a poster confirmed having a war-time rebuilt dated engine in eau-de-nil so it was in use for rebuilds before the end of the war.

    Engine Paint colour

    There is a thread some where on here dicussing war-time paint colours. It will also depend if you want a rebuild colour or as it left the factory. Even then under war-time conditions the manufacturers may not have followed pre-war practice.

    Engine Paint colour

    Presumably you mean Eau-De-Nil which predates the later light blue engine rebuild colour and probably was used before the end of the war.
  4. The first T34/85 did not enter service until 1943 so definately not 1942 as advertised. The position of the vents on the turrent roof is also meant to denote post-war manufacture.
  5. Every Russian factory seems to have had slight varions in its vehicles plus changes like Road Wheel design during post-war rebuilds. There is a T34 Facebook Page where they can name the particular factory and period of manufacture from small details in photograghs. Most survivors appear not even to be of Russian manufacture. https://www.facebook.com/groups/t34interestgroup/
  6. If he wants a Russian WW2 manufactured T34/85 even harder to find again.

    Armoured hoses ?

    I know of some old stock brake seals failing after a short period of use. Just a pity with DAC that there are two seals on the vehicle that cannot be reproduced so modification's are required,

    Armoured hoses ?

    Dingo's and probably others had armoured Brake Hoses but would you still want to use them. I had a box of Daimler Armoured Hoses dating back to when ECM were open but I have new ones made up.
  9. Found this by just searching on T34/85 for sale. http://www.mortarinvestments.eu/products/tanks-2/t-34-35

    Coventry Climax 6KVA generator set

    Photo's indeed required. Could either be he model on the war-time trailer or much later model.
  11. When I lived in Poole in the 1990's I remember a story on the local news that the Navy had placed charges on all these tanks to stop Drivers recovering items. Quite if they missed some I do not know.

    Looking at that article again it did not become 13 Regiment until the 1960's so a little too late for this vehicle to be in service.

    Possibly an LAD within a Royal Signals Regiment unless you are saying one is painted over the other? There was a 13 Regiment Royal Signals post-war so a possibilty. http://british-army-units1945on.co.uk/royal-signals/regiments---major-units-2/13-regiment-2.html C8's are very lare war vehicles and appear to have seen limited war-time service.

    You will find a generic layout of a 15cwt radio body in Volume 2 of the Book Wireless for the Warrior. I would assume that it would identical to the layout in a Bedford which are the most common version. Must be pictures on this site. Also look at the article in Wheels and Tracks on these vehicles which may show a view.

    Vehicle type

    Any suggestions what vehicle this came off?
