  1. Sat here in my office at my PC I have just caught sight of that Rotherhams oiler again and remembered about it. Will it do you to replace the squashed one?. Bar the threads it looks identical. Let me know

  2. I can’t for the life of me remember how it all goes together but all the parts are available or can be made easy enough.

  3. Any updates?. I was enjoying the rebuild.

  4. You're probably right Lex. I think I tested mine by using 3BA screws and nuts as a gauge. I certainly wouldn't have anything 5/32". I'll take another look tomorrow to see the fit of 3BA. Ron

  6. This truck was used in an underground limestone quarry in the region. It was used to haul blocks out. Is it a Morris?

  7. I don't know whether you've seen this (e-)book before, it specifically deals with Wehrmacht vehicle track structures & designs - perhaps it would be of help? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Panzerketten-Gleisketten-deutschen-Kettenfahrzeuge-Weltkrieges/dp/3943883000 It's in German, but I'd be happy to translate any specific sections for you if needed.

  8. Hi. Martyn Thank you for the frame number photo .. This and the date on the Seat post confirm it's from contract c11465 for 150 triumph 3sw . The triumph factory in Coventry was adjacent to Coventry cathedral and through a series of raids was effectively destroyed in 1940 . Triumph set up a temporary factory at a site called Cape Warwick and effectively using surviving frames engines built the last 159 triumphs 3sws before relocating to Meriden where a new factory was established . After being relocated they shifted production to the triumph 3hw ..the overhead version of the bike .

  10. Over 3 years after I first pictured it, the radio table is finally finished and painted. The flat fronted draw was not right so as a lockdown project, I started from scratch and built a new one with an angled front as original. Table now just needs drilling for the four shock mounts for the clips that secure the 19 Set’s wooden carrier to the table. I will do that when the new ones arrive. All that remains is to sort out the earthing straps in due course.. I have also made up the four clips that hold the table to the floor. The 19 Set has been refurbed for a while

  11. That's great Lex, exactly the size nuts I have fitted. (Steve the 23/32" AF equates to the 3/8 Whit spanner size) I could explain but probably confuse you all the more! I just need to get some of those thin washers if anyone has them or making them. Otherwise my mate will have to stoke up the old Myford. Ron

  12. The Riker previous owner told me the story of who took possession of the Riker from him, with the idea that he would be able to buy it back should that time ever come. As the story goes, the next owners family had a sell off, which included the Riker, but it moved on to another owner. He didn't know more only that he suggested that the Riker is still in the California coastal area still. He is helpful and if he, or some of his truck buddies, comes up with more current information he will share that information. Interestingly, my hunt for information on Locomobile and Riker trucks has put m

  13. Well Al that does sound like some progress in tacking it down. Did the chap give you any leads to the owners who have had her since he did?

  14. After the premature posts earlier today, it has now been confirmed that Roger Jones, well known for his involvement with the REME Historic Vehicle Collection passed away this afternoon. I had known Roger for 35 years and we used to team up with him and his colleagues at many events as well as parties. My condolences to Roger's wife, family and friends, he will be greatly missed. Roger was REME through and through! Rest in Peace Roger Richard

  17. Evening All, It Took me most of Saturday to find the center of the turret ring on the hull floor and get the slip rig / rotary coupling bolted in place. Today, Sunday, we placed the turret on to the upper hull for the first time, progress me thinks. Then we took the CMP and Morris for a spin in the sun. The next job is to connect the commanders seat support to the rotary coupling. I shall endeavour to put a little more information in the next update. Jon

  19. Been awhile since my last update, but I am still going... Well I gave the equilibrator to a man with a very big hammer, he managed to unscrew it for me. If you look at the picture you can see the washer (top left, a new one is below it) i took out, all 17 plus 2 spacers were rusted together. After seperating them they had little or no play left in them, so ebay and China came to my rescue and new washers were purchased. I cant get 17 + the spacers in and get the casing closed again so I have had to loose the spacers.. Now I just have to get the bottom mounting rewelded and I can

  20. Strangely enough no, just a thorough clean. We think the crank was replaced as part of a major refurbishment later in it's working life.

  21. Nice crank. Has it had some work done?

  22. The diff casing is now sporting a new set of BSF dentures, the operation went well, although I had to extend the thread on the short ends to match the originals. This has completed stage one of the diff project. The Thorny plates are coming on well, but require careful attention to avoid the paint 'puddling' around the lettering. Stan's experimental engine stand went back under the knife for some modification, to enable the crank case to sit either way up. This was rapidly achieved and the locating holes bored out with a very useful baby mag drill. T

  23. Not much of an update, the storage yard has been closed for some new gate posts going in and when I have been able to work on it, all the screws have been badly corroded. so all the floor is now out and the side armour has been removed. I was going to lift the front firewall/bulkhead off as one lump but I realised 1. It was heavy and 2. I would need something that lift quite high. The yard owner is happy to loan me his telehandler but I found some cracks in the windshield supports so decided to play it safe and dismantle the dash and windscreen from the firewall and remove as 2 separate

  24. Having briefly subverted the thread with talk of roofing techniques and crane envy (which is perfectly fine with me by the way) it's time for another update on the Karrier. I've marked out and drilled the vertical portions of the rear bonnet support. Whoever produced these new castings did a good job; on the near side one the part number has been reproduced. Lots of careful measuring before committing to the position of these parts on the bulkhead. I'm hoping for a trial fitting of the bulkhead on the chassis next weekend. It wasn't quite in the
