  1. Hi Alistair. I have an Enots tap, not the same but we can pull it apart to give you an idea of what you need. Peter
  2. I have an original front lower hull plate with top angle iron £50. A pair of reproduction Stacey tow arms. They are copied off original British fabricated ones and mount a standard 3ton truck spring and hitch £300 A choke leaver and cable. There has been some extra notches cut in and the cable will need remaking £200. Peter.
  3. The bracket is for a spring that the draw ropes from the cupola cover attach. A similar bracket is fitted in the OY and QL. Peter.
  4. Hi Mike. I was told by an old tire fitter that US tires have a different profile on the beading and need to be reshaped with a knife to fit British rims. I would check this first before you start cutting! Peter.
  5. Can anybody ID this seat. I am thinking it's out of a radio or office body. Peter.
  6. I think it is a BY1 as I think the BY3 had a windscreen. Peter.
  7. Hi Rob. I have dropped you an email. Peter.
  8. I am in need of 1 +30 NOS piston for a Bedford 28hp engine. Peter.
  9. Steam engine people might be worth asking if no one on here knows. If you are totaly stuck drop me a PM. Peter.
  10. A little jig like this dosen't take a lot to make and if your bending several parts it works out quicker and all the parts come out the same.! Peter.
  11. We are going to make all the seats. 15 in total for 4 projects. We have pattens for the 2 C shaped pices under the side seats but don't have a patten for the support tube that goes under the inside front corner of the side seats. You should be Ok to use an old casting as a patten and cast directly. Just fill any drilled holes with filler and take to a local foundry. This is what Alastair did with these parts. I have had small parts cast from origanal bits with very good results. Peter.
  12. I have just picked up a hitch for my trailer. I still need an ID plate if any one is getting some good reproductions made and a set of tie down cleats/hooks. Peter.
  13. I had the best ones! Some of the tires are coming off the rims Peter.
  14. Hi Richard, The tank picture I posted was OY which is larger and has a slightly different filler neck but the fitments and pipes are the same just longer stand pipes in side the tanks. Peter.
  15. I have never seen one but are the early Bedford fuel caps pressed steel? Could the right hand cap be one? Peter.
  16. Hi Richard, The right hand tank in the 1st picture on the other thread is the correct drain. The right hand tank on the truck should be a stand pipe with a 90 degree turn with thread for 1/4 BSP pipe nut. The left hand tank should be a stand pipe with a push pull tap. There should be a push pull switch over tap on the right hand chassis rail just behind the cab. I will try to post some pictures over the week end. Peter.
  17. The cam plug is also behind the bell housing. Got that wrong! The core plug is between and below the 2 bolts and is an engine out job. Peter.
  18. The core plug is under the bell housing between the mated surfaces. Have you mistaken the plug at the end of the camshaft for the core plug? I have an engine with the bellhousing off and I will try to post picture tomorrow. Peter.
  19. Hi Mark. This is the box I am looking for. PM sent.
  20. I have managed to get some pictures of the leads I am looking for. I will buy a set or single leads. Peter.
  21. I am looking for a set of leads [5 red and 5 black] for a British UC 10 telephone exchange. I am also looking for the box that attaches to the side and an original operators manual. Peter.
  22. Hi Pete. These plates are only 1mm although I did lay a 18" squire 12mm plate over the top of the tooling and pressed over the centre of each of the 3 ribs. When I have done thicker plate in the past I have kept moving the jack along the tooling and pressing each time. You need to put the time in to the tooling to get it right. It needs to be a close fit to get a good crisp Finnish but to close and you and you cut the rib out. Peter.
