  4. Hi - i'm after an M60 Patton - Doesn't have to have an engine but a rolling hull would be good. Please let me know. Thank you.
  5. I'm looking to source the parts to re-build the engine compartment of a Chieftain tank. Wiring, donkey engine, TN12 gearbox, radiators, ancillary items. I have the engine. Can anyone assist? Peter.
  6. Thanks for the picture Andy. Thanks for highlighting the mistake - spelling and literacy are a weakness of mine.
  7. I'm after an Abbott SPG radiator and header tank - Can anyone assist? I've attached a couple of pictures - bottom of the pack shot you can see the long header tank and the top of the radiator - Then in the drivers cupola you can just about see the radiator above the gear selector. The radiator is pretty unique as it has a cut out section for the prop shaft to pass through from the engine to the drive. Peter

    HI - I've a 434 based in Rossendale - you can view any time next week (apart from New Year Day.....) Message me direct if of interest - thanks Peter
  9. Thank you for the ongoing replies. I'm working on this at weekends so apologies for no further updates so far.....however..... I've now established that by removing the covers on the side of the engine to expose the valve springs that the can tappets are rising and falling as the engine is rotated - suggesting the cam is not broken. There was some piston compression on the pot nearest the bulhead - so I'm again reasonably happy at this stage that the cam is fine. So it appears that almost all the valves have stuck or are sticking! I'm now trying to see if these can be freed off without taking the engine out and opting for a rebuild - but if I'm correct and they are all sticking open I'm thinking the odds might be against me! Please bear with me as I continue to explore this! Thanks
  10. HI - Thank you for your reply. We removed the front cover to reveal the timing chain - we checked the to cogs and they align as expected - so unless the who chain allow a jump of a full rotation of the smaller cog - coincidentally? We have done a compression test on all cylinders and nothing - save for pot 1 What I'm struggling with is the fact that the engine ran normally until I switched it off - now nothing! Peter
  11. Hi - thank you for your reply - Yes it was slack - but it is still in the correct position. Plus there is no compression on any cylinder - unless it had jumped a full half cycle?
  12. Thank you for replying. We've had the side covers off the engine and all valves appear to be stuck open! We also did a compression test on all cylinders and there is nominal compression on one cylinder only! The timing shaft does not appear to be broken so I'm not sure why the valves would stick open! I'm assuming they cant be bent as its a side valve?
  13. I have a Dodge WC 6cyl petrol engine which was running well but on a return back from a short drive it has seemingly lost all compression. I've had the front timing chain cover off and everything is in order, the engine turns over but at a constant speed and will not start again - there is no compression when tested. Having driven the vehicle into the garage and turned it off in the usual way I'm at a loss as to why this might occur but it seems like the valves have stopped functioning or are open all the time. Any guidance or advice would be appreciated. Peter THANKS to all those of you who have responded so far. We've had the side covers off the engine and all valves appear to be stuck open! there is nominal compression on one cylinder only! Very strange how this has occurred! The timing shaft does not appear to be broken so I'm not sure why the valves would stick open! I'm assuming they cant be bent as its a side valve?
  14. Thank you for the replies
  15. Morning! I am trying to establish the military registration of an Abbott SPG, the plate is not present and nor is the original registration number. Any ideas on whether there is an identifying mark on these vehicles that allow it to be traced? Thanks Peter
