  1. Mk1 Militant Tanker

    We fully intend to keep it in its modified form, after all it has probably spent more time like it is now than it did in service. As for the air cleaners, they are staying where they are. We're moving the batteries too a locker behind the cab. That'll make space for the fridge behind the drivers seat. (It's a bigger space)!!
  2. Mk1 Militant Tanker

    We've got all that to come Rob. Ours has been modified somewhat, as well as the crane etc, the electrics have been changed, and the control box is just inside the drivers door and nothing like the original. The air cleaners have been re-sited inside the cab behind the passenger seat. Ours also has a heater fitted to the nearside with flexible air ducting running about everywhere. The plan is to restore it to good condition, but leave the modifications as they are.

    Nice work Rob, the pictures of the work you're doing on the cab are going to be invaluable when we get round to doing ours.

  8. Mk1 Militant Wiper Arms

    Can someone please help. I need to replace the windscreen wiper arms on my Mk1 Militant. They are the parallel shaft type with a collet that locks on the shaft. Can any one tell me where I can find some reasonably priced replacements. Thanks Bob

    Thanks for the advise on the hose Rob. I'm following this restoration with interest as we'll have to do the same to our timber tractor at some point.

    Hi Rob. Sorry to hijack your thread, but have you ever had to change the top hose on a Militant? And if so how did you do it. Bob
  14. Hi All. I have recently acquired an AEC Mk1 Militant. http://hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/showthread.php?7394-A-E-C-Militant-MK-1-Gallery&p=472686#post472686 It has developed a coolant leak from the top hose where it joins to the radiator. My question is do I have to remove the radiator or can it be done from under the engine cover? Thanks in advance. Bob
