    Carrier measurements

    Can any one post the measurement of the tube that runs along the top of the bulkhead on a MK2 carrier? It is stitch welded to a strip of flat plate. I need the outside diameter and wall thickness. Thanks Peter.

    WW2 Military Bulldozer

    The TD International's started on petrol and switched to diesel when warm. They have a mag and plugs on one side and pump and injectors the other side. There was a leaver which switched between the mag and the injection pump and shut off part of the head in the combustion chamber. Peter.

    Most were diesel. Cat and International had petrol engines as alternative to diesel engines for some modles e.g. International T9 petrol and TD9 diesel. Peter.

    Bedford QL engine

    Hi Richard. Just to be different I have a QL engine with QL engine number that is machined for the OY type filter screen. The second picture shows a unmachined QL engine. Peter.
  14. I need the 2 cast exhaust elbows that bolt to the floor of my m,k,1* bren carrier. Part numbers are CTL2911, R,H and CTL2912, L,H. Thanks Peter.
  15. I need a drivers windscreen frame either N,O,S, or very good condition. These are getting hard to find so will pay good price for a good frame. Thanks Peter.

    New addition Bedford QL

    Hi Richard your right the chassis to long. It should end 4" behind the behind the rear spring hangers but the winch gear is all original. I have been looking at a picture of a QLB without a body and could not see what was wrong. But the rear rollers and pulleys are about a foot to far back. Peter.

    New addition Bedford QL

    Hi Jonathan. I was told that the later cabs have a bolt in pannal under the drivers windscreen round the door post. Also do you have the hole in the roof for the hip ring? If not it the cab should be before late 43. I am not aswell up on the QL as the OY but my 44 QLT has the bolt in pannal and hole for the hip ring. The hip ring was first fitted 3/4 of the way through 43 on the OY's. I would think the QL's would be the same. Both of my OY's have no chassis N,o, stamped in that I can find but I do have plates in the cabs. I wish you the best with your restoration and hope you go to the trouble and cost to put the body work back to QLB. Peter.

    BEDFORD MWD or QL parts

    I have a pair of MW tanks which are solid but have had the outlets change so they have some holes drilled in that would need welding up and one filler neck has been cut in half but I have an OY neck to weld on. I would like £300 or swap. There are some pictures on an old add on here. Peter.

    dodge wc62

    Hi Chris. I would look at the torque links where they attach to the axles and trunnion shaft. The holes can where and parts are difficult to get and it is a big job to change the trunnion shaft. I did one for a mate a few years back. Also look at the foot wells round the front cab mounts these tend to rust as there are 4 layers of metal and water gets in. I welded up the same wc63 cab this year as I did the trunnion shaft on. Best of luck peter.

    Rust Removal

    Molasses works well and dosent touch original paint. Needs to be free of oil and grease. DO NOT put alloys in it. :embarrassed: I use 7/8 parts water to 1 part molasses for a week to 10 day's and then scrub with wirebrush under tap and return for another week if needed. As good as shot blasting if not in rush. Peter.

    I spent most of Monday finding and sorting out where I had put all the parts. I did get some nuts and bolts and other small parts cleaned and primed and assembled the master cylinder. Peter.
