  1. you are correct i have had confirmation from the RHA as well
  2. does anyone know when or if the ten year age limit for steer tyres on lorries came in, as the only thing i can find is in the autum 2020
  3. what ever is the matter with these people, every re enactment group has to have the baddies or there is no reason to remember the good,
  4. I had a phone number of one for sale somewhere, needed restoring, I will look it out if you are looking to buy one.
  5. seen at the Purbeck rally last weekend, both from the stable of the late mike gates of poole now with tom jarrot. the Canadian ford needs some tlc and a t cut.
  6. hi a friend in the Netherlands is looking for the steering box bearings for a 1946 Austin k2 or a left hand drive steering box, or suggestions, imperial is hard to find in metric land.
  7. there were two 8 stud military wheels for sale at the three oakfords rally nr shillingstone at the weekend, there were military vehicles on show so someone in the dorset mvt might have seen them and know who the seller was.
  8. well now theres a conundrum, only wwII vehicles but Hotchkiss post war jeeps are ok, that does not seem fair, as most of the veterans of the time are no longer with us we are surely showing our respect for them, so it would not matter what vehicle was used, I can see the point of military vehicles only but cannot see the point in an age restriction, do we not respect all of our forces even those currently serving, this is not a criticism just my thoughts, alan
  9. oh well that's knocked that idea on the head then, I don't think theres much chance of finding a wwII vehicle and getting it done by the date, thanks for your help joris.
  10. is there a limit on the total vehicles or people on this trip
  11. hi Joris is there a year stipulation to the age of vehicles or can it be any military vehicle, also is there a cut off date to register, I will be away from base until mid may and have not yet had definite answer from possible attendees and a vehicle we have found which would serve our needs we are unsure of a build date but is post war.
  12. I have diesel eberspachers in both an 03 fiat ducato camper 12v and a Mercedes atego two 24v. as well as most of the trucks I have driven over the years, all good gear, run stationary or moving, really good sites on u tube for repairs and service, usually reliable but the later ones are hard wired into the trucks electrics and second hand do not always have everything you need, the most common fault is the little wire gauze under the igniter plug becoming blocked, a cheap fix and readily available from fleabay, (if its been continually tried to start it may smoke for awhile when running again
  13. i am sure on the trucknet site there was a fix for that but I was not a photo bucket user,
  14. thanks for that joris, we are looking for something green to bring, grand fathers Bedford was requisitioned with himself during the war, used on airfield runway construction hauling beach shingle for concrete, we will be in touch.
  15. any idea why my pictures come up every time I post something, or better still how do I delete them, I asked the mods but no reply as yet,
