  1. Don't forget that you need to use a suitable flux when soldering. John
  2. While I agree that it is possible to repair fuel tanks at home it can be very dangerous. People need to be aware of the serious risk of explosion, if the tank is not thoroughly purged of any vapour before the application of any heat. John
  3. Hi I have used this firm, they are based on the Wirral, at Ellesmere Port. They have rebuilt radiators for me and repaired pin holed fuel tanks using traditional methods. They are very well regarded in the area. http://radiatorrepairs.co.uk/ Regards John
  4. A little pedantic I think. The old SAE threads were standardised into the Unified system in 1949, but that is not to say that this is not the thread in question. John
  5. Could it be Unified extra fine series which is 16TPI but 60 deg. https://www.gewinde-normen.de/en/16-un-thread.html Regards John
  6. We have used a firm in Nutexa Frictions in Hoylake, on the Wirral, to reline GAZ 69 brake shoes to suit drums that we had had skimmed due to excessive scoring. They were very helpful and did a good job with bonded linings. Their phone number is 0151 632 5903
  7. Hi Paul Thanks for the reply, I will have to have to get some brass plugs, do you know if they had square ends for spanner? The front leg has securing pin there is no clamp, as for the back leg I do not know as I presume that the back end of the drawbar was chopped when the tail gate job was done. I have welded on replacement C sections and now need to bend the 3/16 plate to make the rear hitch plate. I would be grateful if you could let me have the dimensions and hole sizes and positions for the steadies. Best regards John
  8. Hi Guys I am currently restoring a Mk1 lightweight trailer which I believe was made by SS cars, unfortunately there are no data plates present. The rear panel has been cut out and the top half used to make a tail gate. I am told that the trailer was adapted to mount a diesel welder, it would appear that leakage of diesel and engine oil into the trailer has helped to preserve it so, thankfully there is no rot at all. In the floor at the back of the trailer there are two threaded bushes welded in, thread appears to be 3/8 BSP. Are these original drain holes or have they been added later. I have also found extensive stress fracturing around the damper mountings, is this a common occurance? Would somebody be kind enough to give me the length and hole positions of the front and rear steady legs as they are both missing? Best regards John
  9. I understand that it is an offense to park a vehicle on the pavement and could be given a ticket by the police.
  10. But they come up as not currently available.
  11. Hi I think this is the link you need: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9YYVS4CvhE Regards John
  12. Hi I have just bought a trailer with the above generator mounted on it, and I am looking for any manuals for this kit. I would like to read up on it before I try and start it, as I don't want to blow myself up. Also does any one have any idea of the weight of it, as I need to get some tires that will take the load. Thanks in advance for any info. Regards John
  13. What type of 10cwt. trailer?
  14. As I understand it DVLA examiners only test on the public roads. So to answer your question yes it was conducted on the roadways of an industrial estate, as arranged with the examiner, in all six or eight of us took the test that day.
