    My wife and I went to see it in the IMAX format having read reviews in the Telegraph. The size of the screen and the enhanced sounds made you feel as if you were there in the thick of it. It was worth going to see in this format, if only to appreciate the terrifying effect of the Stuka sirens, something that I have never fully appreciated in the normal cinema format. I felt transfixed, helplessly waiting for the bomb to drop. Just another opinion. John
  12. I believe that the early gear boxes had the filler on the right hand side when looking forward. Most have the filler on the left hand side with a separate filler for the transfer case situated at the back of the case, all whilst looking forward.

    Just a thought, looking at the condition of the flange faces on the manifold, it would be a good idea to have the manifold skimmed to provide a good seal on re-assembly. A good seal at the manifold is important for a good running engine. Regards John
  14. I have a sprung towing bracket complete with hitch for sale believed to have been taken off an Austin K5, please see pictures below. I am selling this on behalf of a friend who is looking for £180.00 o.n.o. I could take it to the Yorkshire Wartime Experience on Saturday. Any questions please call 00743752616.
