    Hi I think this is the link you need: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9YYVS4CvhE Regards John
  2. 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

    H test pointers

    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.

    H test pointers

    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

    Perhaps the MVT could take it on and do something worthwhile for the MV community 🤔

    War & Peace Revival - 2018

    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

    War & Peace Revival - 2018

    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.
