  1. Hi Tim, further to our discussions. Would you have a good Saracen wheel. I have one on the has taken a beating. Tyre is up but rim has a flat spot Marmalade Steve
  2. Hi, did you manage to move these on?
  3. Thanks 10FM, these are superb. My Martian served with 103 regt RA Ta and 16 regt AD so highly relevant. It also has the bofors spare barrel storage so once I identify the regt from your pictures I am getting somewhere
  4. Thanks Wally, that has killed that Avenue off lol. Mine was based up in Lancashire so I am led to believe thanks again steve
  5. My Martian has the storage conversion of the rhs spare wheel space to take a spare Bofors barrel for it is likely to be similar to the first image thanks again for your help steve
  6. Hi 10FM68, I don’t suppose you have records of what regt those markings represent. The second one appears to be a crown over a sword but I may be mistaken…..my wife tells me I often am
  7. Hi Match, the Martians were after 1953 . I will check through this and see if anything is relevant many thanks
  8. Hi All, would anyone have any images of Martians that were assigned to 103 regt RA AD TA or 16 regt AD RA. I am trying to find the correct markings for my artillery tractor
  9. Hi, not certain yet . One is a real honest one the other has been butchered
  10. After acquiring two FV1103 this is a record of the trials and tribulations of restoring one of these Behemoths. This is how they arrived with me
  11. Has anyone seen one of the above for sale or could recommend a source. Got the tractor would like the gun lol
  12. Hi All, does anyone have one of the above mandrels that i can either purchase or borrow. I am prepared to pay carriage in both directions.
  13. Thanks, I have now found a company at Cleakheaton who will machine the flywheel and intermediate plate, remove the centres from the plates and rebuild with new plates and friction material and renew the springs in the intermediate plate.
  14. Hi, having stripped the clutch assembly on the Martian at the week end I am now requiring the above. Due to been stood with water been able to run down into the bell housing the twin clutch plates have corroded both onto the flywheel and the intermediate plate. The corrosion is so extensive that it is doubtful that they can be machined back without the loss of clutch grip. Does anyone have any tolerances for machining of flywheels or intermediate plates. The military just used to throw a new complete unit at it any help gratefully received possible beer vouches for reward
  15. Beware the Martians are coming !!! Lock up your wallets .
