  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. I understand that it is an offense to park a vehicle on the pavement and could be given a ticket by the police.
  4. But they come up as not currently available.
  5. Hi I think this is the link you need: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9YYVS4CvhE Regards John
  6. 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
  7. What type of 10cwt. trailer?
  8. 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.
  9. Well I did mine March 2017 and I now have an H on my license. Regards John
  10. Hi Marc Yes it is still for sale. regards John
  11. When I did my H test on a mini digger I had to: Check over vehicle and put seat belt on. Pull out from a side road. Pull up behind a parked car and start of again (remember to leave sufficient space to pull straight out). Do an emergency stop. Turn left at a road junction. Turn the vehicle through 180 degrees. Turn right at a road junction. Reverse the vehicle into the roadway that I had started off from. All the while the examiner walks along side you observing and giving you your next instruction. He will be observing your use of signals mirrors and general road awareness. After you dismount the examiner asks several questions about the highway code and asks meaning of several road signs. I hope this helps. John
  12. Perhaps the MVT could take it on and do something worthwhile for the MV community 🤔
  13. When I first started attending W&P for the week with my military vehicle it was a great holiday with every chance of picking up those much needed and hard to find spares. Unfortunately with the way things have gone I feel that the best hunting grounds for spares are: The Dallas Digout Stoneliegh Malvern John
  14. Just got back today from 2 day visit. I found that the lack of traders was very disappointing, i estimate down by a third on previous years. Many of the stall holders were complaining at the extortionate charges and saying they would be looking at whether it was worth attending next year in view of the shrinking number of stallholders. As regards members of the public attending there did not seem to be a great number either yesterday or today. Looking around the vehicle fields there was vey little armour compared to years gone by, and very few British vehicles if Land Rovers are excluded. All in all I think that our "friend" is doing a fine job of running a once great show into the ground. I for one will not be returning until there is a change of ownership.
