  1. 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?
  2. Wanted Alvis Saladin

    I HAVE DEVELOPED AN INTEREST IN AN ALVIS SALADIN AND WOULD BE INTERESTED IN ACQUIRING ONE. ANY CONDITION CONSIDERED BUT MUST BE MOSTLY COMPLETE. THANKS andrew@honychurch.com
  3. Where are you now...my old 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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?

    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!

    And here is the same Humber now. Pretty much finished. and as it was before we started pulling it out. It collapsed on itself when we extracted it
  9. Just back from Saturday at Headcorn. Fabulous day as always, and in spite of the troubles the event is just as good as ever. Mitchell Bomber is quite a sight taking off and landing at Headcorn as is the Catalina. I wondered how they got the two big birds in to Headcorn but apparently the Mitchell used to take off from Carriers and the drag for water landing aircraft means the Catalina has massive power excess. Nice to to see most of the old faces whilst missing one or two. Hopefully they will be back next year.

  13. Carrier parts prices?

    I like to think of the rarer T16 as the final development of the earlier universal, and there is no doubt that the tiller/cletrac style differential steering is far superior to the bend the track and diff braking on the earlier mass produced Carriers. Interesting that they were the Carriers that the British Army elected to keep after 45 Not that I am biased or anything. Anyway, I looking for a regulator for this if anyone has a nice NOS, wish I had bought more of dear Chris Wilkinson whilst I could All help much appreciated as the blighter has stopped charging this is the regulator incase someone has one and didn't know what it was for
  14. Guys, I am having trouble getting my T16 Carrier to charge. Used to work ok, and now it will not. The generator is working as far as I can see having tested it, and repolarised it. however, the regulator is not providing current through it to the field terminal to the generator. If I cut the regulator out of the circuit and apply 12v to the field wire to the generator all is well. So its a three pole regulator much like a Jeep, Dodge. Half track. Is anyone out there an expert on these things who lives in the Kent area? Trying to get it to Combined Ops at the weekend but just cannot sort this. Oh, and yes I have cleaned all the points but may have lost some adjustment.

    Thanks chaps. The oblong plate is in fact instructions for left and right hand threads on the axles. Nick if you are making new sliding roof sections maybe we could double up on that?
