  1. What sort of trailer/era are they for?
  2. You first need to send a letter to: HM Revenue & Customs Personal Transport Unit Building 22, Priory Court St. Johns Road DOVER CT17 9SH Give all the detail you can about your purchase including chassis number and as much of its history as you can, if they are satisfied they will issue you a NOVA number which will satisfy the DVLA that there is no VAT to pay. Best regards John
  3. I am with Mike30841 do a full compression test before you open anything up, this will tell you a lot. Regards John

    Pete I have used Nutexa Frictions up here on the Wirral, they were very obliging when we needed linings for a Gaz that had oversize drums following scimming due to bad scoring. Would be worth a phone call. 0151 632 5903. They have been in the business since the sixties and make linings for coaches and trucks etc. Best regards John
  5. Age doesn't come into it, it is the condition of the bearing surfaces that matters. Regards John
  6. Surely the correct way to approach this is to assess the bearings for wear. If the bearings are showing signs of wear, pitting, chatter or corrosion they need replacing. If not clean and regrease them put them back with new seals, and adjust them correctly. Regards John
  7. Steve I have two of the side legs complete with casting, if the are of any interest. Regards John
  8. Richard I have had a look at this site, as I am also interested in a British census number. But I am at a loss to find any relevant info. Can you please advise where to find it on this site?
  9. But without the vehicles and re-enactors the organiser has no show to entice the stall holders and public to attend, therefore he has no show.
  10. A friend of mine who was in the TA in the 1980s was pulled for not displaying a tax disc on a Foden wrecker coming out of the Birkenhead tunnel. When asked by the cop who owned the vehicle, his response was Her Majesty the Queen. Classic!!!
  11. When you ask for a size 45 is this your chest size or the military size, as a size 16 is rather a large military size for a battle dress blouse.
  12. Hi Steve With great difficulty, some came out with an internal bearing puller, of the collet type attached to a slide hammer. Others I had to weld a bar to the taper inside the cup and knock them out from the other end. In better setups on machinery etc. there are usually relief slots in the diameter behind the bearing that allow you to use a punch to knock them out. Good luck John
  13. Hi The bearing codes are: outer bearing code 09074/09196 Inner bearing code 14125A/14276 When I gave them the original codes they could not recognise them, so I had to measure them myself and identify the codes from websites, but they are a perfect fit on the job. Any bearing supplier should be able to get them for you. Best regards John
  14. Hi I have just put new bearings in my N0.1 Mk.2 lightweight trailer, they are easily available from bearing suppliers. I can post the bearing numbers tomorrow if you would like them. Best regards John
  15. Hi Gary Thanks for the quick reply, very interesting. Regards John
