  1. Can you clean up those casting marks as one appears to be the letters JAC. If so it is a foundry name. I have JAC marks on some Thornycroft parts and have found the initals on other castings of the time. Doug

  2. My gut feel is that the open spoke wheel is the earliest, then the very closed wheel then the two round hole wheels. My reason is that the brake ventilation holes get steadily larger which I think would be the natural evolution. The closing of the open spokes and then somewhat opening them up again could be for casting quality reasons. I wonder how many people will notice that you have odd rear wheels when the bus is being displayed ! David

  3. The Clansman PRC344 is a 2W UHF AM transceiver intended for FAC use. As such, there is nowhere within its range that it is legal to transmit. In fact, of all the Clansman equipment, this is the one where transmitting can at best get you into legal trouble, at worst endanger aircraft and lives. But you say, I would NEVER transmit! Well, maybe not deliberately, but who hasnt turned a switch the wrong way accidentally? How easy is it to catch the pressel on a handset? And what about inquisitive fingers from the public at a display when your backs turned? There are no 'power on' lights on thi

  4. This Guy Ant was on a local farm for years and when the farm was sold was saved from the scrap yard by a local garage . It’s now parked on the side of a local road and clearly needs a major restoration . the first photo is a reference photo the second is the vehicle in question not for the faint hearted .. Jenkinov

  6. Just started to strip the gearbox and it doesn’t look good, even after a good degrease it’s still mucky! The gears and shafts are heavily pitted, I will take some pictures tomorrow to get second opinions. The main problem now is getting a rear gearbox mount, pictured below is what’s left, definitely “ fubar “ Any ideas where I can get a replacement? Front bearing missing a few ball bearings

  11. I am still in the queue for engineering and suffering a serious lack of funds, which obviously makes progress on anything requiring expenditure, somewhat difficult. Fortunately a number of paying jobs have turned up, and I am fully occupied trying to drag myself out of the sh1t ! I'm sure I'm not alone in the present circumstances. However, in every project there are jobs which lurk and get bypassed for various reasons and it didn't take me long to find some. A nice pair of suitable gate hinges have been hanging around long enough and have now been attached to the seat lid

  12. I remember Neil asking me if I recognised what it was from when I was there some years ago and as there were a handful of bridgelayers sent out during the war, I guessed it was a spare. You struck lucky there.!

  14. Right, I've sifted through and here are the rest. While some images are easily identified I thought I'd include them anyway for people to have a look at. I'll include any captions above their respective image. Caption Reads: "Wrecked Jerry Truck with dead still there, Note 'X'" (I've removed any upsetting detail from the image) Caption: "One of the many" Caption: "British tank going into action, June 1940. Taken as we left" Caption: "Jerry petrol tankers after the RAF had been. This was the scene for miles"

  15. Thanks again for the comments, they are all very encouraging, especially during the periods where enthusiasm is lacking. I always try to finish my projects as though they have just left the factory and then allow them age with use, which I don't think will take long with the tank, bearing in mind that you have to climb all over it to get in and out. Talking of which, climbing in and out to work on the interior plays havoc with the knees, I will be glad to get the upper hull off again and sit it on it's stand to finish things off. Not much to report as I have been getting on with some
