  1. WOW! Relaxation of the towing regs. To say I'm surprised is.... Thanks Hair Bear for the heads up. Jim
  2. Hi John, Thanks for your reply and taking the time to have a look. I know what its like trying to find specific things :). I've not started on it yet but I'm thinking that if the break is immediately where the shaft leaves the diff then I may have to remove the diff to get it out. If I were to push it out from the other side could it drop into the trumpet/sump of the axle casing before finding the tubes, if that makes any sense!!
  3. Hi All, Today, whilst driving the OY to the YWE I had the misfortune to break a half shaft. At least that's what I think has happened since the prop turns but no drive. It went whilst changing up a gear on a steep hill! I would prefer a pair (to carry a spare), I'm assuming they are identical shafts for either side? Happy to buy a complete axle too. Any leads gratefully appreciated. Thanks Jim
  4. Hi, Its years ago now but I remember someone one here had a quantity of NOS Daimler Ferret choke or more correctly 'cold start device cables'. Mine is beyond repair so I'm on the lookout for a new or serviceable one please. Just message me if you think you may be able to help. Many thanks Jim
  5. Thanks Richard for your explanation. You've got me thinking now. Cheers Jim
  6. Hi Richard, Sorry I cannot offer any more info but I'm watching with interest. I had always thought the MW and OY had the same carb, given they had identical engines. May I ask the reason for your question? Cheers Jim
  7. Hi Adam, I could be wrong but my understanding is that HGV's built before 1960 do not require the driver to have an HGV ticket/operators licence, as long as driven for pleasure and unladen. p.s always fancied one myself :). Jim
  8. 5 years and over 50% price increase, I will be sticking with my points. Thanks for the update though.
  9. Hi, What price are you thinking pls? jim
  10. Hi, Whilst I am far from an expert, by the looks of your adjusters you appear to have bands with plenty of life left. First gear adjuster nut may be stiff, adjust it and see if you cure the slip! Regards Jim
  11. Hi, No, but I'm still interested in getting one.
  12. Hi All, I am on the hunt for the screw clamps that fasten the sand channels to the front of a ferret. Ideally a pair but will take a single if anyone has a spare one. Thanks, Jim.
  13. Trying to get on with my slightly basket case Daimler Ferret. I need a fuel pipe, namely the one from the left hand side fuel tank outlet to the switch over tap. Of the two pipes which feed the switch over tap its the shorter of the 2, (directly below the tank). Any help would be much appreciated. Jim.
