  1. Have you seen this thread? Looks like it was owned by a member called Peak1 from Sheffield back then. Don't know if they are still active on here though?
  2. Probably not military, but this picture has been posted on the local Then and Now Facebook page. Can anyone identify the 1921 truck? https://www.facebook.com/groups/bristolthenandnow/permalink/1421639378041427/
  3. Their Facebook page says "Due to COVID the Heartland Museum will be closed until 11/12/2020. Sadly, the Veterans' Day Parade will be canceled this year. Stay safe!" https://www.facebook.com/heartlandmuseum/
  4. Looks like it might be the The National Automobile Museum in Reno. This link says "After the HATM closed, a portion of the collection was donated to our Museum and is currently stored in a local warehouse." https://automuseum.org/?event=a-video-tour-of-the-hays-antique-truck-collection-august-second-thursday-talk Even if they didn't get the Riker, they might know where it went.
  5. Think it's one of these. Also known as a Bog Frog:
  6. Yep, think you're right. http://www.bmpt.org.uk/other_boats_history/RSL-1664/index.htm
  7. This site will be useful for research. http://www.bmpt.org.uk/index.htm Difficult to tell what it might be from the photos.
  8. Googling the reg number, the roadsweeper was sold at auction. Can't see the sale date though but possibly 2015: http://classiccars.brightwells.com/viewdetails.php?id=5461 Found a picture of it from 2018 here: There is a chocolate express bus in the London Transport museum collection - not sure if it's the same one though?: https://www.ianvisits.co.uk/blog/2017/11/05/see-the-pirate-chocolate-express-bus/
  9. They have a website too: https://www.joesmotorpool.com/
  10. Some alternatives were suggested on this thread:
  11. How strange!! Could you make up a puller to remove the bushes using the internal thread?
  12. I'm really puzzled by the internal thread in the gudgeon pins. Don't recall seeing anything like that before, and can't see any purpose to having it there, especially if they are pressed in. The brass ends of the pins look to be very big in relation to the pistons and con rods, so I'm wondering if they are just end caps or bushes? Something like this: https://blog.wiseco.com/what-are-wrist-pin-buttons Could the brass ends be externally threaded too, and held in place with the split pins? The internal thread could be there to facilitate installing them. Not sure how they could be go
  13. Loads of info available on Google. This looks to be a good site: http://30au.co.uk/Home.html with pictures of some of their vehicles in the Mobility section: http://30au.co.uk/Mobility.html You can just about make out an insignia on this pic: http://30au.co.uk/Mobility_files/Media/Jeep_on_ship_home45/Jeep_on_ship_home45.jpg
  14. If you click on the posted time part from the New Posts page (i.e. 6 Hours ago) it takes you to that particular post rather than the beginning of the thread.
