  1. Robert i have known and worked on these for years, the first engine was a USA built Continental, then the engine designed for the Standard Vanguard was adapted for it. never heard your story before regards Richard
  2. Gordon, From the FV number I deduce it is a Lamp Guard for a Challenger tank and NSN is 6220-99-881-6898
  3. Well done, it is now looking as I remember them 👍
  4. Rob, 36 Engineer Regt at Maidstone also carried the X11 sign on their vehicles in the 1970's, I had an original sticker and scanned it for Sam. regards, Richard
  5. Good one Rob. You can always tell an AEC by the brake squeal ! That one goes well. Look forward to seeing it in DBG and tac signs. All the hard work was worth it.
  6. I seem to recollect spotting that when you showed it to me a while back.
  7. Hi Martin, Looking at the throttle spindle, I would say that is a carb from a Daimler Armoured Car ( it has a clamp to link to the other carb).
  8. Hi Tim, Well done to you all, that will give you more confidence in the old girl. It looked great going through the town.. regards, Richard
  9. Hi Gaz, It would not be at all advisable to tap the threads out to Metric, use the correct UNC bolts, these are lifting points and you will weaken the threads. Safety is the name of the game here!
  10. Yes I am fully aware of that as I have been inside it, but it has not actually ‘fallen apart’.
  11. There is a Mark IV tank standing in our town, it has been in the same place for 100 years, never seen any bits falling off in all the years I have known it. Must have been made better than a Challenger 🙄
  12. These wheels were known as Easyclean (spelling may not be correct) and used by a number of car makers in late 1930's. I think that Hillman used a 3-stud wheel hub. The wheel shown has the lugs for a hub cap.
  13. Hi Scoobie well done, glad that trick worked for you ! regards Richard
  14. Hi Nick, Some of the stories these guys come out with do not make any sense, they may not have had much interest in them at the time either, just a tool of the trade.
