    Daimler dingo plugs

    Do you want the screened ones or the un-screened type? Found a army reference list for spark plugs. Listed below is a part of that list that discribes the screened sparkplugs, including measurements and the "civilian" names of the products. I've listed TABLE 1(b) below, that deals with the screened plugs suitable for Dingo's. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- M.o.D. "Defence Standard" 29-2 (sept. 1974) regarding PLUGS, SPARKING (NON AIRCRAFT). Table 1 (B) "Standard Range, Plugs Sparking - SCREENED" (a) NSN: 2920-99-803-6570 (b) Service Management Code ARMY : 6 MT4 (c) Item Name : PLUGS SPARKING (d) TREAD SIZE (mm) : 14mm (e) TREAD REACH (In) : 1/2" (f) SCREEN TREAD SIZE : 0.692 x 24 tpi (g) HEAT RANGE : MEDIUM 125 to 200 MANUFACTURER'S REFERNCE OF EQUIVALENT PLUGS (j) CHAMPION "RSL10" (k) KLG "RF50" (l) LODGE "SR14"

    Wanted Daimler dingo recovery blocks

    Hi Martin, Are you looking for the front or the rear hooks? You should be able to cast the rear towing hooks.
  11. Gentlemen, I'm looking for info / photo's / descriptions of the WW2 Bleach Powder Tins carried on most WW2 AFV vehicles for decontamination purpusses. They are widely mentioned in most vehicle "stowage lists", but until now I cannot find any documentation about them, or any photo's. Is there anybody who can help?

    7.00 x 18" Inner tubes

    And I forgot to mention: found innertubes locally for a very nice price (20 euro each) and will fit adaptor valves to inflate hem. Very handy those adaptor valves !

    7.00 x 18" Inner tubes

    Hello Richard, I'm planning to use the RF2 tyres and keep the solid tyres back on reserve. I must say I forgot about the inserts for the RF2, but with a normal size type of innertube I'm figuring I don't need to fit them as the innertube will fully inflate the tyre. (Will regret it when I get a puncture though ! ) The 2 first photo's shows the tyres I 'm planning to use, the last photo shows the same type of tyres in use (Normandy 1944). But thanks for your comments.... made me think extra !

    7.00 x 18" Inner tubes

    Hello Forum, I'm looking for inner tubes for my Daimler Dingo, wheel size 7.00 x 18" They need to have the steel angled valves. I've googled, but got lost in Alibaba-offers! Any UK based truck or tractor suppliers ? And YES : those are for the NON-solid tyres 7.00 x 18" wheels. Will need 4 or 5 of them. Hope you can help.
