  1. Dan, Never heard back from John1950 as to what bits he actually wanted . Are you interested in anything particular? Mike.
  2. John, Are you saying that you want all of the bits? Assume that you will want this sent. I would prefer to use UPS as they are relatively cheap and reliable. Let me know what you want and I can then get a cost for sending. Thanks Mike.
  3. Hello John, £100 for the whole 7.7 set. £15 for the timing chain £50 for the pair of 9.6 head gaskets Mike.
  4. Clearing up and have for sale, a gasket set to suit the 7.7 in Matadors and other vehicles. Also new timing chain but without link. And a pair of AEC 9.6 head gaskets.
  5. A Rolls Royce C Range workshop manual TSD publication 803 (10th issue). Covers 4, 6 and 8 cylinder versions. This is a comprehensive workshop manual, not the service manual. In good 'workshop' condition. Engines were fitted to some military Scammell Constructors and numerous other vehicles and plant. As per preface, can be used for work on the 'Eagle' range. Can post or welcome to collect.
  6. I've had a look and only have a slave cylinder. Hopefully Cosrec's advice might be of use.
  7. Thanks for providing the info. Hopefully will be a good starting point to getting a date for the original lorry. Will let you know what we decipher.
  8. Can anyone on the forum help to date a Bedford MK from its chassis number (or point me in the right direction). It has been rebuilt and no details of the Army number exist on it. Many Thanks
  9. Due to a change in future vehicles, I have some unused parts for the Scammell Crusader Eka. These are mainly air system and brake parts . If you have a need for any particular part, please let me know with a full description and part number (NSN) if possible. I will then let you know if I have it. As I tidy through the bits there might be a few other Crusader parts.
  10. I'm interested in finding out a lot more about this series of vehicles as have no real involvement with American lorries to-date. Can anyone recommend a book that covers these. I don't want manuals etc just something like the equivalent of a 'Warehouse' publication. Thanks Mike.
  11. I've four aluminium cooling pipes left over from when the Meadows came out of my Explorer. All in good order with very minimal corrosion internally and externally. If you need any replacements for yours, then please let me know. At least three of them have cast in part numbers which may assist with identification.
  12. Rob, Inspirational work as always. Couple of good suggestions above for painting the inside of the hose carrier. I was going to suggest the somewhat crude (low tech) method of making a bung for one end and then trickling-in suitably thinned primmer with the tube at an angle and then rotating and tilting it until full coverage was achieved. Remove the bung to get a bit of air through it to aid the drying. As an aside, always did like the Audi A4 estate and as your photo's prove, excellent for moving the odd bit of military vehicle.
  13. Good project. Look forward to seeing this progress. A few others have done conversions to recovery vehicles so be interesting to see your solution. Good looking work to-date with some nice attention to details already.
  14. Thanks for pointing me in the direction of the woodwork drawings, they will be very useful to check dims etc. Interesting what radiomike7 says about the rear boxes as always thought that they looked like an add-on as didn't seem to be the same quality as the rest. Never thought that they really had enough support. Think mine might be left off for the time being. I've used Keruing as the buffer strips between the chassis and body on a Matador and this came from the same sawmill that I'm going to use for the Explorer wood. Always remember getting an evil big splinter from it in my hand and
