  1. Thanks for all the replies, As Chris Mentioned above its an obsolete chain that was used on winch drives by the USA. thankfully i have found a guy with some used chain.
  2. yep have been through the catalogues and been to the local dealers, the problem is the 9/16 roller diameter standard roller diameter for 1" pitch is nearer 5/8. also the height of the chain links is much lower, than standard, its a very strange chain!
  3. Thanks, i had already spoken them Fowlers and it has stumped them!
  4. Hi all, Bit a strange one this! I need some roller chain for a Cletrac winch but it would appear to be a very odd size! dimensions are 1" pitch, 9/16 roller, 5/8 wide so far it has stumped my local suppliers , so any suggestions would be great. Thanks
  5. In theory, less than £300 each, final price will be announced once they are in the warehouse and all the dreaded fees are paid.
  6. Thanks for all the feedback, The 10.50-20's will be going ahead, all being well they will be here late in the year or early next year 🙂
  7. Hi everybody, 10.50-20's quick question to those enquiring about 10.50-20 track grip tyres. They can be done but not cheap! They would come in around £500 each we would like to gauge interest levels prior to pressing the go button. Specs would be 16 ply, 2000kg load, 50 mph speed rating
  8. Glad you asked 🙂 The latest update is that Daimler Dingo tyres will be available very soon, followed by 10.50-20's as we have had a lot of request for those sizes. 10.50-16 may happen later on but the interest level was not as great.
  9. Hi all, just a quick note to day that we are down to the last few sets of the new 900-16's if your thinking of getting some, don't leave it too late. The next batch will be a year or so down the line as we are making dingo tyres next, then 10.50-16. Barry
  10. Ok, so now that we have made, sold and fitted the 900-16 track grip style tyres, we are now planning on 10.50-16 next! and possible 700-18 for Daimler dingo (depending on interest) so the first step is to gauge the interest in these tyre sizes, if people could reply with a comment on the size and number they would be interested in. only the sizes mentioned above for mow. also spread the word on other groups you maybe members of. it will take a bit of time but hopefully not as long as the 900's took! we have an original WD 10.50-16 to use as a pattern and will be looking for a dingo tyre if someone can lend us one for a month or two to use a pattern? it will be returned in good order. cheers Barry
  11. For the Ferret owners out there, the tyres fit your wheels perfectly, same bead dimensions as RF.
  12. HI Everybody FINALLY!! the tyres are here in the UK! I have fitted over a dozen already and they look and feel great. they do fit onto British rims with plenty of tyre lube 🙂 They are £300 each including a tube and flap. collection from Bristol or Portsmouth of we can ship at cost (UK pallet usually £90) Either PM me on here or drop me an email armytyres@gmail.com We also have 7.50-20 Bar Grip, 8 ply, @ £135 each inc tube and flap 6.00-16 bar grip 8 ply @ £80 each inc tube and flap.
  13. Sure, these pictures are from Ian West's LRC. The Turret is turned manually.
  14. The turret on the LRC does rotate 360 degrees on a very simple turret ring comprising of some angle iron and 3 bearings! nothing fancy 🙂 the little doors in the top of the turret are big enough to get your head out of and maybe a shoulder if your small enough. the main hatches are much bigger and this is where the BOYS rifle was fired from. On a side note i have since sold this Morris and its now joined another Morris LRC up in Cumbria that was restored by Debbie and Paul at Rusty trucks.
  15. HI all Could i ask that anyone who is interested in tyres please email me armytyres@gmail.com Let me know qty interested in, location, email and contact name Just so i can keep a track on requests in one place. Thanks
  16. Hi Everybody, Finally some good news! production is happening as i type. So hopefully some tyres will be with us soon. To save me sending a million messages 🙂 1, they should be in the UK in the next couple months 2, final price not known yet as we still have shipping, customs etc, as soon as e know i will update. Bulkk orders will be discounted 3, they are 16" so will be a tight fit on British Rims, i will fit one as soon as they arrive.
  17. frustratingly we are still waiting on production, they have assured us its imminent! as soon as they ready i will make an update.
  18. thanks Robin, will be in touch once we have some firm dates on the first batch.
  19. Hi Everybody, Finally some good news on the tyre project, We anticipate production to happen this month, Finally!! all being well tyres will be in the UK in the spring. i will upload some pictures once they have been produced.
  20. Probably a good idea to contact the Heavy goods team as DVSA as you'll need to book a "first" MOT/plating, which when i did it for a Unimog was quite an involved job in itself! as you cant book a slot without the vehicle having a "Plate" so they had to issue us with a temporary plating then we could book the MOT slot. The MOT will need to be done before DVSA registration. Once we had made the initial contact with the heavy good team they were very helpful.
  21. PM sent, will take the lot.
  22. Just a waiting game at the moment, we're waiting on the company to produce them still. as its a small batch we have to wait our turn! frustrating but we will get there.
  23. Hi all, quick update on the tyres, we are just waiting on the production company to get on with them! we keep chasing them up but unfortunately no date for receiving them set it stone yet. we will get there in the end, as soon as i have a date set on them arriving on the uk i will update. sorry to anyone waiting on them, we are at the mercy of the production.
  24. That would be handy thanks, we wont do the 13's for a while yet as the 900's and 10.50's are priority.
