    T16 tool list needed

    With thanks to David Gordon, author of Weapons of the WW2 Tommy, and ex owner of a T16, he has kindly provided this photo of his kit including the correct folding saw. Interesting as it made me realise I have one of these somewhere that came with a Dingo I bought a few years ago. Hope this helps
  3. Thanks Nick. I have one of these on my M20, I had forgotten about them to be honest. I shall read up on it now. Good thinking!

    Indeed you are correct Adrian! I have just discovered that. I have a friend in the US who may have a photo, and have asked him to either send to me or else post here.

    T16 tool list needed

    Hi Robert, I do have a parts book and should have the illustration in that or the TM. can you let me have an e mail and I will try to scan this later if its there. I am however, intrigued why the museum specifically wants pictures of a T16 folding saw!
  6. Thanks, I have bought an electronic distributor made especially for the V8 by Stromberg. Its the regulator I am concerned with at the moment though. Andrew
  7. ok , I know about these but generally the solid state regulators are a lot of money when a standard regulator would do the job. I will ask him for a price but I dont hold out my hopes for a reasonable price solution. thanks anyway
  8. Chaps, I have a T16 Carrier fitted with the Ford Flat Head , running 12 volt and negative earth as standard. The dynamo that sits on the top of the engine on the T16 is the size of 5 litre can of paint. Enormous thing. The original regulator sits next to the driver and is a strange affair , similar in looks to a Jeep regulator, but is held in position by a clamp and is now in need of replacing. I have decided its time for a modern unit. Not being an auto electrician, but reasonably handy, can anyone suggest a regulator that will replace this. I note some of the early 60s regulators as fitted to Jaguars, Minis etc have 5 or 6 terminals where as we only have the three on the T16. I would welcome some guidance on this as I am keen to get it charging prior to going to Combined Ops in a couple of weeks. thanks in advance.

    Where are you now...my old Jeep

    Last MOTd in Liphook back in 2012. Not been MOTd since, but then it doesn't require an MOT. Anyone know someone in Liphook area who owns a Jeep?

    thanks for the replies chaps. Yes I saw it was still taxed and made the MOT connection as not being indicative any more. Someone will know it I feel sure.

    Where are you now...my old Jeep

    Some years ago I sold my old Jeep and regretted it . I see its still around, registered GAP470, but I have never seen it since. Anyone know where it is and who owns it?

    British Army Willys Jeep circa June 1944

    thank you chaps, both of you for the very useful leads. I didnt know about either the book or the Facebook group. Book appears to be out of print, but will keep an eye open for it. Will go onto the FB Group now. Cheers
  14. I am just commencing the restoration of my Willys Jeep which has been waiting for a while for me to get around to it. Well actually since 1975 when Father bought it! Anyway, its British but I have not other information other than Butler lights on the front wings and light green British Army paint on the engine. I can find lots and lots of photos of US Army Jeeps but not so many of British Army Jeeps circa June 1944. Have any of you out there photos you could post up or just general information on fittings for a British Jeep of the period with markings? Would be very helpful . Not sure whether it should be Micky Mouse or not, I suspect not at June 44?

    Humber Heavy Utility

    thanks Andrew. I have to come clean and admit that the restoration of the body has been done by a professional coach builder who has worked wonders. He built the body piece by piece without removing it from the chassis and restored the chassis underneath it. I would prefer to do it the other way around, but my father and I don't share the same view on this. He is adamant that you must keep the integrity of the body . My point is that there was not a lot of it left so it would have been ok to strip it down to the chassis and build it back up. The second Humber is sitting untouched awaiting a decision as to what to do with it. It is too good to be used for spares and was a lot better than the first one so it looks like I will have to do that one now!
