  4. Militant now for sale in the usual two places, £12,250 Ono.
  5. Bit more done in the cab this morning, engine cover & top of engine partially sanded for engine blue.
  6. After a long absence due to family and work I’ve started to tidy the interior of the cab ready for sale - please DM me if interested. Iveco seat I removed a few years ago for sale separately.
  7. Iveco Seat . Condition is Used. I think this is a Eurocargo seat as I removed it from my AEC Militant Recovery, the previous owner of said truck fitted it. Never had a head rest by the looks of it but the holes for one are under the fabric. Used condition as can be seen from the photos. Bolt hole centres measure front to rear 14” and side to side 8.5” and come with the bolts. The seat almost folds flat and slides forwards and backwards. No seatbelt included. Happy for collection from South Derbyshire DE65.
  8. I’d called in a brake specialist as we couldn’t trace exactly where the fault was, they’d made the diaphragm then assembled it the wrong way round so I’ll be speaking to them about their invoice today.
  9. I’ve yet to replace any fortunately, one of my next projects is to replace the grease nipples as quite a few are in need, if you get stuck sourcing any let me know as I have a local contact who may know - they must be out there somewhere.
  10. After stripping, cleaning & lubricating the RIC valve, my Dad & I tried reassembling it with the gasket above the new diaphragm to try and cure the air leak when the foot brake is pressed. Once fitted back to the truck tonight it worked a treat. Such a small change made all the difference. Sequence was; valve block then push rod then diaphragm then gasket then lid.
  11. Some more images from this weekend, found the leak from when the foot brake valve is pressed is from the exhaust port on the RIC valve, possibly the exhaust port not seating correctly. Few photos of the hydraulic repair also.
