  1. In 2003 rebuilding a Dingo I used a firm called berniebolt@talk21.com. to make all the fixings that had to be cut out or re-made. Contact them and send a sample of your requirements. I have just checked companies house and the company is still listed. Bernard F Wade Ltd, PO Box 1865, Oxspring, Sheffield, S36 8BY 01226 370860 Every thing I sent was supplied or re-made in good quality at a fare price. Cheers Michael
  2. Try www.jones-springs.co.uk 0121 5687575
  3. Do a Google search for Manx Aviation and Military Museum Isle of Man If over for the TT or holiday it is free entry with lots of kit and displays, well worth a visit.
  4. I have a stock of new sa80 Land Rover rifle kits if required.
  5. Richard Yes your correct can I plead loss of memory, it the sun not the beer. Michael
  6. Hi.Spinner When I cleared out all my Bedford spare and sheets for MJ/MK all went to a firm in Sussex. Vehicle Independent parts (Hastings)Ltd 014524 858314 e-mail truckpartsuk@aol.com Graham Eaton Worldwide Bedford Truck Parts Sales. Do you required the whole set or a few side sheets? I have a couple of side sheets left in Sussex UK, can check when over in a few weeks if that would help. Michael
  7. Mike Has your vehicle been converted to negative earth and alternator? as all my vehicles of that period are positive earth with dynamos. Just a though that's been nagging me on this problem. My Dingo had the same problem in the middle of Normandy in 2004, wired as made in 1942 with positive earth and that was a faulty original engine mounted coil. Half an hour to cool down and it worked again but had to be replaced in the end with like for like. I had a similar problem when helping an owner in Norway with an OY half way up a mounting, but his spare coil had a REME label attached with big letters stating "faulty coil dated 1943". Cheers Michael
  8. Hi Mike Richard has covered all the options. If it is a good correct 12volt coil on a 12 volt supply wired correctly it should not get hot, warm yes. Does your points burn out ? if so this would suggest a high current through a faulty coil or the capacitor/condenser being US. Any external heat from the engine making the coil get hot? Good luck Michael
  9. Ladies and Gentlemen. All the time you pay the W&P fees, the cost will go up. I am happ[y to show my vehicles, my entrance fee is looking after the said vehicle all year, presenting her in good condition, paying transport fees and my free labour whilst on site. Any show that requires me to pay for the privilege of supporting them can take a long walk off a short pier. By the way do you know that a public footpath goes through the site, from just up the dual carriageway on the left, this can not be blocked and is free for walkers.
  10. It is not green and has no wheels, but an unusual item in mint unused condition I found going through my kit today. ARP Gas Mask wipes to give clear vision with the rear Brylcreem add priced at 1/- shilling, 2" x 1.5" size looks like a box of matches from the outside. It may have been issued with my gas mask in 1943. "A.R.P Clear View" are the only names on the item, does anyone have more history on these items? Regards Mick

    Going Electric

    An interesting conversion of a Landrover to run on electric from down under. www.goingbush.com/ptev.html. I would prefer the hydrogen cell to keep it more original.

  13. British Army Landrovers do not need reversing lights. We not retreat.
  14. Does anyone have a good use for an air field foam extinguisher, needing some TLC. It would be a shame for the scrap-man to be the new owner. Items are at TN6 Sussex area. As you can see my location is shown as the Isle of Man and I am in and out of the uk whilst I clear my barns of kit. Any interest contact me on tumbledown.farm@yahoo.com and we can arrange collection when I am in the uk. Regards Mick
