  1. From a Facebook Site . A Stalwart was Hit from behind By a Road train. The stalwart appears to have rolled over several times throwing the driver from the cab. Hewas airlifted to hospital with life threatening injuries.

    Stalwart FFR

    So spent the Day at Stalwart Plaza. Broke more than I fixed but that's the way it goes. Got it running "yeah" Air compressor offload valve is stuck "BOO" Spliced eyes into new rope for the load deck Tarp. "Yeah" looks good but I used blue Nylon rope so it stands out a bit. One of Fire extinguishers exploded due to corrosion "Boo" a handle held one on the cab side. Freed off door looks and latches "Yeah" Blew the steel brake pipe on the forward lh brake caliper"BOO" not sure what to do about that. May go tomorrow as well If I do I may supply pictures
  6. I just bought the ones from island 4x4 pound each I think. Just checked £1.75 plus vat. The ones for genuine alloys
  7. probably easier to make a new tank than dismantle the old one
  8. well that's a fine mess that you can't recoat the tank. https://www.frost.co.uk/oyltite-stik-oil-leak-sealer.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIjZv3n5q43QIVL5PtCh3pUg2mEAQYAiABEgIQ9PD_BwE
  9. This patch isn’t under pressure, only gravity if I’m not mistaken. So I would think 1 in screw in each corner is adequate.

  11. As it says use external resistor I suspect you may have damaged it . this style of galvanometer is supposed to have a resistor in series with it you then connect the resistor and voltmeter across the voltage you want to measure. The scale is a Dual scale as this would be a panel mount meter with a switch to change the size of the resistor in series with it . More for test equipment than vehicles. The Fe refers to Iron in the core.
  12. You take the shaft joining muff which is about 4 inches long. Machine the splines away for about 1 inch. So you end up with 3 inches of the 4 inch tube or muff with splines and 1 inch nice and smooth. It’s this smooth part of the tube which no longer drives anything but supports the shaft when you slide the muff to disengage drive. That’s the theory.
