    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

    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
  15. 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

    Dukw parts

    Thanks for the fast replies Pete and Nick but we have been to see Rex in fact that is where the windscreen came from but he did not have the side screens , I just thought it was worth a punt on here in case someone had some lying about , The only other option would be to fabricate some, Paul

    Dukw parts

    Hi to all, We are restoring a Dukw in Lincolnshire , At the moment we are missing the two side quarter light ends for the front windscreen , There may be other things we need as the restoration progresses but if anyone has any spares for a Dukw we would be glad to hear from you . We are hoping to have the Dukw fully restored to attend the 75th commemorations in France next year, Thanks Paul.

    Polsten Quad Manuals

    A friend of mine has just purchased a Quad Polsten but he did not get any paperwork with it only the deact certificate , Has anyone got any paper work on this fantastic piece of kit that i could purchase or even a scan of the manual would be good

    Polsten Quad Manuals

    Today we had a good look round the Polsten and worked out the method for taking the gun off the towing platform , I now know why you need some strong men , We unlocked the Guns so they could go up and down and unlocked the revolving central mounting so the guns could spin round , Then we started the engine which was surprisingly easy and we were away , There was some hydraulic oil coming from the breather on the top of the pump so that will have to be sorted but all in all we had a successful day
