  3. Did You guys not respond to the CMV subscriber survey.....I told Key publishing that they had stuffed a once great magazine Completely ...I recommended they get hold of some old issues and have a read through them !.
  4. The blade assembly's were made "Britstand" and supplied as kits that were fitted in the field, mainly in the pacific. the first 6 were cable operated with a jeep engine used to power the winch, the next 6 used the same jeep motor but were hydraulic and the last 6 of which 3 survive including ours are hydraulic been driven off the main engine pack.
  5. We have been sitting on this for some time, we have most of the bits, Australia had 18 dozer conversions however I only have the WDN numbers for eleven of them, WDN 6940, 7352, 7384, 7386, 10277, 17359, 18766, 18771, 27732, 37159 and ours 46101. 3 were sold at public auction in the 1950s complete with the blades. we really don't have any intention to do anything with it apart from operate it when we can along with our other vehicles.

  7. Glad you enjoyed the video, New engine pack is running well Richard, we re calibrated the Pumps because we felt a little under power following the rebuild and now we are just a little over ideal and we blow a bit of black smoke under load but we feel its ok. Richard, we still haven't fitted the new engine pack to the Dozer but its getting close.....
