Coventry climax Godiva fire engine trailer

Recommended Posts

Hello 

Iv got a a Coventry Climax Godiva fire engine trailer that Iv began to restore I believe it’s a ff500 and Iv been looking all through the internet for a manual for it but struggling to find anything and there seems to be very little info on the flat head 4 cylinder that it has. But I found a few interesting threads from this forum so thought I try you guys for abit of help.

also does anyone have any 6.50 - 20 tyres or know where I can get that them and they won’t cost the world. 7.50-20 seems far more common but unsure if they would fit

kind regards pete

Can't help on tyres that don't cost the world but don't be tempted to use agricultural tyres even if they are the cheapest option.

What is the rim width?

Table from:- https://www.tyres-pneus-online.co.uk/tyre-equivalence-advice.html

Rim width    Minimum tyre width    Ideal tyre width     Maximum tyre width
5,0 Inches   155 mm                               165 or 175 mm     185 mm
5,5 Inches   165 mm    175 or 185 mm     195 mm
6,0 Inches   175 mm    185 or 195 mm     205 mm
6,5 Inches   185 mm    195 or 205 mm     215 mm

Thanks  For that table👍🏻 

I have noticed all the reasonable priced tyres are for agricultural use.

One tyre on it is absolutely rotten unfortunately and makes it difficult to move around 

cheers
