  1. Let bubba loose on that one to save ours (although it looks like he’s made a start with the winch and those wheels.
  2. I’ve had a tracker before. It was very good. Had a little issue though, but nothing bad. I wrote the car off and I was in a bad way. They rang my dad when they couldn’t contact me to say there was abnormal activity (being recovered). They didn’t believe him when he told them so I had to speak to them in my distressed state. i also had contact from them when 2 cars parked so close to the car I couldn’t get in. I let the handbrake off and rolled it back until I could get in. Because the key wasn’t in the car, they thought it was being lifted so rang me instantly. A couple of security
  3. If you google car tracker there are dozens of different products available that do similar things. You just need to work out which suits your needs the best.
  4. Originally they were an oil bath chain case but as said, they just leak and I never got a good seal. Some have changed to a dry clutch and sealed chain but this brings its own issues. if you do go for a sealed chain, they are slightly wider so you need to ensure there is space between the chain and the case or else you will soon ware a groove in it. You can often see these grooves and now you know why. You may even need to add spacers/shims or remove metal from original spacers to obtain enough clearance. Probably worth the effort in the long run, especially if you intend to use it
  5. There’s been lots and lots of interest but nothing firm so prices updated
  6. My mate hires out Horseboxes (and his business is booming) and he’s got a little box in each vehicle. It’s not wired in at all and just has a AA battery in it. He does recharge the battery every time it’s rented so not sure how long it lasts. But it’s brilliant, connects to his phone using an App, can locate in seconds, gives him speed, g forces etc. and gives him a record for future use should he have issues from the Police. It’s small enough to be hidden anywhere and isn’t as expensive as a monitored tracker obviously but worth it.
  7. Imposters maybe but they’re an interesting design.
  8. I should start a thread really. But compared to some of the projects here I.e. the WW1 trucks, it will be a doddle.
  9. I think that jubilee clip is modern, have you found some nice marked bolt heads? ive just taken my halftrack fenders off and found them TR marked.
  10. Hopefully that thick plate has protected the frame underneath. My frame had similar on the other side under the battery tray. It appears the battery had leaked acid over the frame and eaten it. Someone then welded plate over the top after the frame failed but didn’t bother to realign it. When I cut the plate off there was a misalignment of about 1/2” between the 2 half. This had put a twist on the leaf spring and the front hanger was really badly worn. fortunately the rest of the frame was exceptional so I made a new front horn and fitted a new battery tray and it’s as good as new.
  11. Excellent work from Jan again. The Hitchcock versions aren’t anywhere near as accurate or the quality of those.
  12. An update, I hadn’t realised serial 181 was an EU spec so have dropped the price. Also listed serial 185, both 182 and 185 are Uk old spec.
  13. It’s always worth popping it on eBay. A few years ago I replaced a really cheap looking vintage plastic damper knob off my old Enfield WD/CO and through it in the bin (literally from about 10 foot away). I fitted the £30 NOS knob and was chuffed to have “fixed” this issue. About a week later I saw this know in the bin and thought I’d pop it on eBay. To my surprise it got a bid, then another, and then messages wanting to ‘buy it now’. It sold for something like £280 to a guy in Malaysia. He backed out the next day with a lame excuse and I offered it to the next highest bidder. He
  14. Yes pedals out, transmission plate off, wiring disconnected/removed, steering wheel and or shaft/box removed. Fuel lines if still connected, accelerator link etc. etc. sounds a lot but it’s pretty straight forward.
  15. I bought my first in 1986 I think. It didn’t have a deac cert, it came with a Proof House certificate stating it could not be proofed/beyond proof. I still have it, it’s one of those things I don’t think I’ll sell as I was a kid and saved up all my pocket money to buy. I think it cost the princely some of £45!
