  1. Hi; My Fox CVR[w] J60 was rebuilt in the USA with high compression car pistons- overbore so the liners were removed and the cooling system could NEVER handle the engine heat. Ruined the engine basically. The original J60 operated on the edge of the military cooling system for a reason. Newc
  2. So, inorder to name [label] a CVR[w] Fox , you would list it as a Diamler product on title and goverment licencing papers? ROF Leeds is not a recognized vehicle mfgr Name for title and or insurance- especially in the States.?? Newc
  3. Hi; the 70's Fox cvr[w] is supposed to be Alvis built, but oddly there is some controversy about that. I understand that only 296 were built and about 47 got surplussed, some to the States. More info is always welcome Newcoregon
  4. I don't have them, but on Mapleleafup ,the info is there just incredible, what is happening without a bill of rights. Newc [USA]
  5. Hi; I'm in the USA so shipping is too problematic. I have one intert blue bullet sample and will have it copied in plastic. Thanks Newc
  6. Hi; Can't let mine go, but they are around with a solid bullet inert blue color. I was told to have the extras 3D printed. Newc
  7. Hi; Looks like a Royal Enfield single cyl, has its numbers and a unit badge on the tank .. a yellow triangle with a black horse. the motorcycle is on Craig's list Portland, Oregon under motorcycle parts. the bike is intack.. all together.. Craig's list post ID no. 7048050052.. It's located in the city of Grants Pass, Oregon. A good photo is posted in the add. Maybe you could ring the owner up and get the idea of what it is. Yes this is the second post today about this bike, cause it did not show up in New posts. Newc
  8. On Portland, Or motorcycle parts. A complete British single cyl military motorcycle; Looks to be WW2 It is located in Grants Pass, Oregon. Craig's list Post No. ID 70480500052 Good hunting; I'd post a link if I knew how. Newc
  9. In the USA try Fordbarn.com. in fact two surplus carrier engines were sold there this Summer. still in Military crates. 24 stud 59a engines 1939-42. newc
  10. Odd, but my Fox tach looks like a leyland motors unit from a MGB, acts like one too. Newc
  11. Well; I haven't run my Fox in 3 yrs, old petrol now. Understand that overheating was always iffy. My problem is a bad rebuild on a series one engine.. Series 3 engines had far better cooling passages and even the heads do not interchange. Newc in Oregon USA
  12. Mapleleafup.net new posts Poor mans Armor Newest post was today. Newc
  13. Yeh; there is now a series of construction posts under Poor Man's Armour on Mapleleafup.com I am unable to provide a link, so folks will have to go there. I find it under new Posts. Newc
  14. Hi; On Mapleleafup.com a fellow is reproducing a BA-64 on a CJ jeep chassis. It actually looks quite good and he reproduced the exact scale steel plates. I think he uses "Poor mans armor" for his posts. Although they don't show up every day, he is making good progress. What an idea for a 'Kit' vehicle , I could see dozens of them driving around. Newc
  15. Not yet; as the new owner of 00 DD 40 is in a learning curve. He has been told to jack up a front wheel and rock it for and aft. Possibly remove the wheel and inspect the brakes. Odd because it loaded forward so nicely and then fronts locked upon unload. I may have to provide some personal motivation... do it for him. Newc .
