  1. Hi all , I am currently having my C8 Engine totally rebuilt but I am missing one very important part and that is the timing cog that fits on the front of the block which is a 26 tooth twin cog , Has anyone got one on an old engine or indeed a cog that they would be willing to sell , Paul

  5. Thanks for the information Jon I will make a list of the parts we need and give them a ring , Paul
  6. Thanks everyone I did look at Ians posting and I was quite impressed but looking at from a lay mans point of view it looks quite complicated unless someone did a complete kit for my diesel defender engine
  7. Thanks for coming back to me on this oats and barley, That conversion idea sounds good especially as I have a very good defender engine sitting in my shed , I wonder if anyone else knows who was doing these conversions
  8. Hi all , I am having my Morris C8 Engine rebuilt at this time but the people doing the job have met with a lot of problems such as the cylinders are on max bore and one of the con rods has been converted to take shells , It also needs pistons and valves that need locating . I think if there was another engine out there that would be my best bet, Has anyone got an engine which I believe is a Nuffield or can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful for any help , Paul
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. Thanks for that ackack I did download the Polsten Manuals from the Canadian Register they have been very handy . Paul
  12. Thanks Jon I will give them a try , Paul
  13. Thanks a lot Chris I will give them a try, Paul.
  14. Hi , I am trying to find a set of valves for my 1944 C8 I know this has come up before on the forum but I do not seem to be able to locate any , I have a complete gasket set but I could use another set to keep as a spare, Thanks , Paul
  15. 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
