    Breakdown cover recommendations

    Hi I use Autohome for my Chevrolet C60L and have had no problems apart from the Ben Hur trailer that I tow , The firms they use for the recovery do not have the right tow bars so will not recover the trailer ,. Autohome is limited to £1000 total cost of recovery . For my Morris Commercial C8 GS I have a Flex Plus account with the Nationwide Building Society this gives me free unlimited recovery for my C8 and my 110 Defender and any car I am a passenger in , It also provides recovery for my living van as this has a 50 mm ball hitch even though it weighs around 2 1/2 tons , This account gives me free holiday insurance as well all for £13 a month

    Polsten Quad Manuals

    We did get it off the trailer but we just lifted it on its own jacks it had to go really high and nearly killed us, When we put it back on the trailer we used a fork lift truck to hoist it up . Can you lift it high enough on blocks to operate the guns without hitting the mudguards, Paul.

  7. I am writing this to thank all the Vehicle owners , Reenactors and Traders that attended the Hunstanton Military Weekend , The Normandy Veterans Pilgrimage Fund and the Royal Anglian Benevolent Fund will benefit to the tune of £3.500 , The event was fantastic with thousands of holiday makers milling around and listening to the live music on both Saturday and Sunday and generously donating in the many buckets that were dotted around . Harold Payne of the Anglia Motel at Fleet Hargate in Lincolnshire organized the event and displayed his Restored DUKW and his 432 Armoured Personnel Carrier . This Event is getting bigger and better every year so keep your eyes open on the events page for next years dates

    Dukw or Gmc steering wheel

    Hi Matchfuzee, Thanks for the link , I will have a look at my friends steering wheel but I think that is a bit too much when you add in the postage
  14. Hi , My friend is looking for a decent steering wheel for his Dukw , If anyone has got one to sell it would be handy , I think it would be the same as a GMC
