  1. Brilliant work Rob, you're a real dynamo!
  2. It sounds like an empty limber would qualify as an unladen trailer but what about a 25 pounder? Serious question.
  3. Look in Clive's corner for "all charged up", it will tell you everything.
  4. Update: Thanks to Keith Benfield's detective work we now have the hull number and Bovington are going to provide supporting paperwork for DVLA.
  5. Thanks Robin. I found him on the British and Commonwealth Soft-skins group.
  6. Thanks chaps. I found the plate but the hull number has been obliterated by someone - on purpose. Any chance of finding the hull number from the army number? Bovington can't help.
  7. Success! We found a chap in Norway with a shed full (nearly) of Morris axles - he sold us a half-shaft.
  8. Thanks again Richard. Today we wound the clevis link on the gear lever in by two turns and now all the gears are selected with ease. Our next problem is to get the thing road registered but we don't know its chassis number. The data plate seems to have disappeared, all we have is the army number 01EA27. Does anyone know if the chassis(?) number is stamped on it somewhere please? Phil
  9. Now I've done the sensible thing and looked at a data book, I can see that the vales are not masked. Trying to be more helpful, it seems the O600 was fitted to some Hippos (as well as lots of commercial vehicles).
  10. Thanks Richard. I'll update the records in my head.
  11. Aren't the Leyland 600 inlet valves masked?
  12. Six, I think. Won't know for sure until next week.
  13. Thanks Richard, I'll have a look at the linkage. Trying to remember but I think the pedal works as normal once 3rd is engaged. Phil
  14. My pal's Ferret will readily engage 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th gears but having selected 3rd gear and pressed the pedal the pedal stays down, as if in neutral. After a few attempts the pedal usually springs up with a bang and 3rd is engaged but that makes driving tricky. Is this a common problem and what is the likely cause please? Cheers, Phil
