  3. Hi I am after a Bedford 28HP timing chain for the power pump on my MWC Any used but generally servicable one (i.e not totally rusted up) would do fine Thanks Richard
  4. Hi Not posted for a few weeks, but I have been busy I have spent some time making bits for the power pump, the one that I acquired was for an early MWC (see notes in previous posts) and needed some some modifications. The outlet of the pump did not well under the tank and also it did not have a third port for the pressure releif valve, so new top made This is the original output (the "Y" is the output ports) and this is the newly manufactured one fitted to the pump (it is not an exact copy but it will do what an original one does (thanks to Tomas Higgins for some addi
  5. Hi I have similar one made by Marples (not for sale as it was my late father's), still one of the best screwdrivers I have ever had. Doesn't have a square bit on the shank. Have you seen this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/W-MARPLES-SONS-Vintage-Screwdriver-12-1-2-overall-length-1-4-flat-tip/303687191654?hash=item46b52acc66:g:LG8AAOSw3ChfJ~Ed Cheers Richard

  8. Hi Never seen a complete list of ZA to NSN's, I have a few of the ground spike and will dig them out over the week end to see what numbers(if any) they have on them, I assume that this is what you are talking about Cheers Richard
  9. Hi Not much progress this week, limited time at the "shed", but did manage to get the hand pump supports brackets partially made Thanks to Pete Ashby for supplying me with pattern for the supports (and some useful photos), hopefully will be cutting the back in the next couple of days and welding them up next week, this is what the should look like Next on my list is to attemt to make the facy valves that goes at the bottom of the pump (unless anyone has any of these that they wish to sell), this is specially for MWC's as other bowsers have a different arran
  10. Don't know what the internals are like, I assume there is a piston that goes to and frow. Would it be possibe to re-sleeve it and/or make seal on piston ? Would be interesting to know what the internals look like Cheers Richard
  11. Most likely with traces of the original paint, what type of primer are you using (Cellulose, or Xylene based one) ? Cheers Richard
  12. Hi Bit of help please, the fuel filter NRC9786, what thread size are the inlet and outlet and what size pipe is it designed for ? Thinking about using one for my MWC instead of a cheap plastic one Cheers Richard
  13. Hi I have reduced the size of the T port handle and it looks a lot better Also made a bit more progress on the split pillow/plummer block that supports the front end of the power pump It is made from two heavy duty trailer jockey wheel clamps that I sliced and welded together. The ends were faced by a friends fly cutter and the hole bored out to 2" diameter. brass bits on top to make it a bit more like an original one (photo of Tomas Higgins MWC) The back end of the power pump is attached and supported by a bracket that is attached to the chassis, t
  14. Hi It is called pyramid edging, sometimes it has a small lip on it that can easily be ground of with a flappy disc sander. Here is the link to where got mine from https://www.fhbrundle.co.uk/products/25NOSE2__Pyramid_Non_slip_Nosing_35_x_5_x_3000mm you can probably get it from other suppliers, it is a very good match for the war time type. Cheers Richard
  15. Next installment... Fitted the offside rear mudguard, the plate that sits on top of the mudguard is all bolted bown Made good progress on the "T" port valve that sits on top of the tank, 7/8" BSP inlets ftom the filters and 1" BSP to the tank. A little more work, especially on the handle as it is a bit too big Cheers Richard
