Looks fab albeit drafty, no spare wheel?

 What are the items in the rear locker, suction pipe and canvas bucket I see, CUP 4 I presume means 4 cups! but what of the other tinned items?

Nice looking truck

Good to see original pumps and filters. (I am looking for these for my MWC restoration) . Are they Stellar or Meta filters ?

Cheers

RICHARD 

thank you but must come clean l made the pumps and filters I have researched these items both those made in the uk and those made under licence  by different companies in Canada  these I made thanks to a very good friend lending me his  fabrication workshop his machines and also his scrap bins out  of hours some things like the filter body tubes l had to  roll to get the right diameter  the cones were easy in all they took 24 hours to make two pumps and filters they are all  made from steel 3mm thick brass taps were bought l am now looking at casting the makers plates in aluminium not all the Canadian ones had either stella or metafilter plates fitted l could not even buy a original pump for what these cost to make and l would recommend any one looking for originals have a go
