  1. Get a bit desperate, it's a long wait for the metal panel work. Needed to fettle a bit on the rear body for ease of mind. Started to make wouden bits for the roof section , on the Sample body (late model) the front- centre and rear roof crossmember are complete in wood. This is made of two rounded bits and on to these side bits is fixed the roof crossmember. I will need to make 7 crossmembers and some have a metal reinforcement and the in between member are not fitted with wooden outsides but have a angled metal support , so in total I need to make 8 angled bits from metal for the roof and made a copy from a good crossmember and need to produce 6 extra crossmember from the model I made.
  2. had a little display with the Trailer , equipped as a battery charging unit. The Petter generator and 1250 Watt switch panel with some battery's . Pity that I don't have de lead that been used between the generator and switch panel. If I find the right electric cable I have a working battery charging combination .

    MORRIS COMMERCIAL - restoration project

    Original colour will be a problem on this vehicle, past throw so many hands and is for from original. The two vehicles that I am working on have seen a lot of modifications and on this one there is some very clear green base colour ( to bright to use in military service) So I presume the bright green was a base coat .

    Help, Bedford OY servo problems

    Indeed, as Richard explains the setting are crucial . Not all the instruction manuels have the same settings , for my Ql I used the settings out of a original workshop manual. Good luck . Guy Labbe

    Radar Truck ?

    The engine is probably Morris commercial unit .
  15. Hello, I have the remains of the axillary on board generator mounting base on loan out of a Morris W/T box. It looks like the base frame is fitted on the wireless body floor ( very rusty) and connected to to top frame with the same type of rubber mounts used on wireless set 19 base frames. I really think that there is need for extra sliding part where the generator is fitted on and this part can then be blocked with the clamps on the frame ? Took some pictures with a chore horse generator just temporarily fitted over this frame with the top clamps fitted on to the generator frame work. Can somebody help on this problem , is there a extra mounting base in existence for a chore horse are is there a different axillary generator on board ? To my knowledge all the bigger generators to a chore horse need the extra switch panel to make it a working battery charger so I doubt that there is a bigger generator on board . The measurement on the top base are 16 1/2" wide by 21" long.
