    10cwt mortar trailer.

    Hi Toney. The plate is cast brass and has been on there a long time. I did clean some of the thick green paint off it to photograph it. I also noticed it has fabricated rope hooks welded to the chassis instead of cast cleats bolted to the woodwork which I had not seen on GS trailers before. Nice to have a mystery! Hope someone can sort it! Peter

    Thanks for the info. Nice to know it's wartime. I can do some research now into the 2 possible manufacturers. Peter.

    Loyd TS&C T69261

    I am missing most of the starting & charging gear, I have got the PTO and 6 belt drive pulley and the 2 gallon stone were jar for distilled water. Any help tracking down any parts would be useful. There should be a 12V and 30V dynamos with 3 belt pulleys and 3 control boards. Also battery trays on the floor and a battery shelf across the top of the bulkhead and along the sides. There should be 4 15 foot cables for jumping and some storage boxes/trays. Also the floor cover for the dynamos. Any leads on parts or measurements to make parts would be a great help. Peter.

    Loyd TS&C T69261

    I have just got my loyd tracked starting and charging back from New Zealand and I am hoping to rebuild with the S&C gear. A lot of work has already been done before I bought it, but still plenty to do. Luckily I am 30minutes from Alastair who knows just about everything about Loyd's and has sorted many of the problems I would have ran into. The Loyd was built by Vivian Loyd & Co and the brake drums are dated 42. I have got a few parts stashed away Including a good flathead V8 as I was told the engine with it is on +60tho cylinders. Peter.

    Hi Simon. We were only talking about you and your trailer this afternoon. Thanks for the offer, I will probably take you up on it after harvest. At the moment I was hoping someone could give me some information on the trailer from the numbers, e,g, age and manufacturer. Peter.

    Carrier help/advice

    Hi Maurice. Just had a quick look through Nigel Watson's book and it dose appear that all the carriers with these plates welded on have had the smoke discharge brackets removed. Thanks for the help. Peter.

    Carrier help/advice

    I am working on my Carrier hull and need some help/advice. It is a MK1* which I am rebuilding as a MK2 upgrade I am trying to position the plates to attach the wading sides and the front left side one covers the holes for the smoke discharge bracket. How was this done originally? Thanks Peter.
