  1. Guy Martin - Mk IV Female Tank replica

    Enjoyed the program pity it didn't get to drive through Lincoln as planned the alternate poignant. Look forward to seeing the tank, from the program it looks a beautifully engineered a tribute to what can be achieved
  2. '36 Fordson pick up

    Possibly it is a conversion, looking at the originally posted photo and the B&W of the same it's a good conversion. Looking at photos online of the Model Y wind-up windows, running-boards and bumper bars appear the most numerous with sliding windows no bumper or running-boards on some vans. Possible these were optional extras - still a nice vehicle
  3. '36 Fordson pick up

    A quick look through Bart H Vanderveen's directory to 1940 mentions a Truck 10/12 cwt year model 1932 Ford B with sand tyres looking similar to the one in the photo - military or not a very nice vehicle

    Hi thanks for the diagram, it may seem boring I’d suggest when you get a multiemeter check the continuity of each of the wires in the loom. You will soon get a feel for the condition of the wiring loom, if you just want to have the engine running make an independent loom just for that. Satisfy yourself you have a good engine then continue with the wiring continuity checks till everything is working as expected

    Hi thanks for the diagram
  7. Ford Jeep

    I see this Jeep has headlinings. chrome and a boot all marked at 4-star out of 5 - bling is everywhere

    Any chance you could scan and post a wiring diagram for your lorry as often this type of fault/break may be down to bad contact - earth/grounding
  9. bedford mk tyre change

    I have done large commercial tyres in the past at the roadside but suggest this is not for the fainthearted - if you havnt done this type of tyre before go to your local friendly commercial tyre fitting person and let them do-it (in a cage) for a small fee taking note of how its done - then decide if it's something you really want to do as flying locking rings can seriously spoil your day for all time

    Just found this thread fascinating - regarding old wiring - I have just finished the installation of a new old stock wiring loom in a friends QL - one item I found useful was a cheap multimeter for checking the continuity in individual wires fuses ect -
  11. Constructive feature requests

    If it's mechanical I can fix it, if it's an issue with computer program I ask one of my grandchildren. Having been a doubter I am getting around the new look forum and enjoying the experience as much as I did the previous model
  12. Thoughts on the New Forum Layout?

    It's a matter of preference the desktop I'm using is set for day - month - year and this is as set from new, it's from Italy not I suspect that makes any difference as I said preference
  13. Thoughts on the New Forum Layout?

    If it is merely the most common form of dating an item or event then it seems sensible to use it as a standard some how 1944 June 6 to me doesn't flow as easily as the 6th of June 1944 - a personal opinion
  14. Bedford QLT restoration 82RB41

    What switches are you looking to refurb, I have just reworked a QL instrument panel for a friend and found providing you disassemble them carefully and keep a photo diary and notes of what you are doing be patient you'll do it. I think this one is a little further along than yours
