  1. Thanks to the link to the earlier posts. This seems very similar to another trailer mentioned = 69FG52. It does seem odd that trailers with all the features of a wartime 10cwt trailers were being issued with new registrations in the late 1960's. It has all the signs of being military with convoy lights etc. Is it possible that they were held in store from the late 1940's before being registered? You would have thought that by the 1960's any new trailer would have been constructed on the standard Sankey or Brockhouse chassis?
  2. I have just been made aware of a Jointers trailer that may be up for sale. The construction appears wartime but the 6/VEH contact number would indicate post war? The back panel has 70FG13 stencilled on it. Is it possible to date the trailer? Thanks
  3. Just spotted this on ebay if anybody is interested. No connection to seller. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ORIGINAL-1962-BRITISH-ARMY-SPARE-PARTS-MANUAL-COMMER-TRUCK-15cwt-4x2-Q2-Mk-III/124568559026?hash=item1d00dd5db2:g:uzgAAOSwsbhgJtl0
  4. Last MOT in March 2020 shows mileage as 43150 however the advert states 26720
  5. There is a WOT6 wartime photograph on ebay at the moment if anybody is interested. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Military-Vehicles-Land-Rover-x-4-Black-and-White-photograph/193845683376?hash=item2d221a64b0:g:ASwAAOSw5GJf~G3s
  6. I am looking for a 1968 to 1975 dated BCF Fire Extinguisher bracket (FV351285). I believe this was standard fitment to British Military vehicles, an empty extinguisher would also be good. PM me if you have one you want to sell Thanks Richard
  7. See illustration from 1956 '.50in. ALL ARMS AA WEAPON' pamphlet showing mount fitted to a vehicle (Austn K9?)
  8. I am looking for a Land Rover Series 2A Lightweight '236' prefix serial number engine to replace the civilian engine in my newly acquired 1969 Lightweight. Any condition considered. PM me if you have anything. Thanks Richard
  9. Richard, Yes thanks that's what I am looking for. I just wanted to make sure I get the right one Richard
  10. Can anybody help me converting NSN part numbers into ZA / ZB Numbers? In particular the ground spike for mounting the ATU when removed from a vehicle. Is ZA29831 the same as 5820-99-949-1022? Thanks Richard
  11. I recently purchased a job lot of radio equipment including a standard Clansman TUAAM wing box. However it contains a MFJ-910 Mobile Antenna Matcher mounted into a RS Components diecast box as per pictures rather than the expected standard TUAAM I assume this was a civilian modification rather than military? Any thoughts?
  12. Thanks for the information, I have emailed the Gasket company today and await a reply
  13. I have just purchased a BSA 300w Charging set for rebuild with no spark and a low compression. I have downloaded a copy of the Manual from http://www.howardengineerium.co.uk/Images/BSA Charging Set Manual.pdf however Page 31 is missing. This covers checking and adjusting valve clearances which I suspect I will need! Has anybody got a copy of page 31 that they could send me or upload? In addition is there a UK source for head gaskets? Thanks Richard
  14. Wally, I believe it should look like this being approx 23 inches long and 13 inches deep. Thanks Richard
  15. Has anybody got a C42 Radio and power supply 'bottom tray' that they would be interested in selling? Thanks Richard
