Bedford tools

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have an illustration (preferably with part numbers) for the specialist workshop tools for the Bedford MK and MJ. All costs happily met.

Thanks

Mike.

Mike,

I spent many years doing regular work on MK and MJ, including rebuilds. There are not too many special tools required and it depends on what work you need to do. The most important one is the hub spanner, for undoing the castellated ring nuts. These tools were made by Kent Moore, and I think Churchill. Sorry, no pictures to hand.  Some people might tell you to undo them with a hammer and screwdriver (!!!!!), but having done that, you cannot accurately adjust the wheel bearing on refitting. Right tool for right job 👍

Richard,

Thanks for the reply. The reason for asking was that I have a heap of tools which were supposedly all Bedford and I'm trying to sort-out what they all do with the aim to making a complete set. Quite a few are made by Kent Moore so hopeful but think there might be a few interlopers in the heap.

Always nice to use a properly made specialist tool - heaven help us all from the nut that's been attacked with a hammer and screwdriver!

Hi Mike,

I understand now, maybe post some photos of the tools and I will take a look at them.

regards, Richard

No, don't have a parts book. Are the tools shown in there? 

I don't know. I will try and find today and have a look. Saw it about 6 months ago so should not be far away as I had it for sale but no takers. Its a big book for 20 quid.....

The special tools are not in the army parts books for MK or MJ

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to reply and even look through the manuals . As per Richard's suggestion, I will take a photo of the tools that I have and hopefully it may be easier to identify them. There are some weird looking items but of course, there is always the possibility they are for something else.
