    I have two very large tyres surplus to requirements. Goodyear 14 x 20 and a Firestone 14 x 20. They were fitted temporarily to a Scammell Pioneer front axle. Obviously old but no serious defects. Very heavy ! Located East Devon. £ 30 each. simondduff@gmail.com
  2. I am hoping someone may have some of these rear brake shoe pull off spring tensioning cams. I need one but could use 3 if anyone had any spare. Thanks
  3. Lovely work ! I envy you for the overhead crane !
  4. I have two part worn tyres which have a dot code of 2013 so they have a couple of years use for someone who needs a couple of tyres for the front axle of their truck to get it through MOT. They are Michelin ZXL. 395/80R20 which is correct for Bedford TM 4-4. They have 9mm plus of tread and will certainly do a good few miles. They would go on a pallet and could be sent by Palletforce or similar. I would be happy with £50 each no VAT . Collect from East Devon or pay for carriage.
  5. Front towbar bracket assembly and windscreen frame surplus to requirements . Free to “proper home” . Located East Devon.. email me at simondduff@gmail.com. I haven’t a clue as to how to show a photo of the items - someone help me !
  6. My thanks to Neil Hampton for giving me a roller and also providing a proper 4 bladed fan assembly for my Pioneer .
  7. Thank you Neil, that is good news. Well, I would like to purchase the items from you so I need to know the cost ! And especially would you be prepared to send by Parcelforce or carrier ?. I can send funds direct to you bank account if that is best for you. My email address is simondduff@gmail.com which you should use for any sensitive information. Thank you Simon
  8. Thanks Neil Looks fair enough to restore. Do you have the assembly which attaches to the front of the Gardner to which the fan mounts ? Simon
  9. That looks fine thanks Neil. The important parts are the axle, the roller bearings and the brass end caps. I can clean up the rollers easily enough even if I loose abit of diameter. I am looking forward to seeing a photo of the fan and mounting bracket if that is possible. I have got the winch onboard and bolted in place. Next job will be the serving gear . I do enjoy working on this equipment as it is all so substantial and well made ! Thank you Simon
  10. Thank you for responding Richard, I may be “sorted” but will note that you could have a roller assembly. I have straightened and trued up my bent arms so should be ok there. I was interested to read your response to the thread about difficulties which might be put in the way of our enjoyment of our hobby/interests. You must have a hell of a big shed to house 70 plus units ! Hence the name “ Ashcollection “ ! Best Wishes Simon D
  11. Good morning Neil, blowing a Hoolie here and I suspect it is worse near Southampton ! Fully understand if you don’t venture out to take photos today unless your scrapper is lucky enough to be inside a shed ! Wonderful if you do have a fan available, my little 6 blader looks silly off centre in the big cowling. The proper fan will need different mounting assembly so if you have that complete I will be very pleased ! Many thanks Simon
  12. Good evening Neil I have remounted the winch on the chassis leaving the arm missing its roller assembly easily accessible so I can add it in due course. I hope you are able to supply me with one. On another matter, my Gardner is fitted with a small diameter 6 bladed fan mounted towards the RH side of the radiator. Perfectly serviceable I am sure but not correct according to pictures in my parts listing. Might you have available the correct 4 bladed, larger fan assembly ? Thanks Simon
  13. Thank you Mr Hampton ? Nrhampton. I get confused by names which are not names ! Anyway, thank you for your response. I am waiting to see if RICHARD in Norfolk has found what he thinks he may have. In the meantime, what would be the cost of one of your roller assemblies ? I have straightened and trued up the arm so only need the rollers. Where are you , and do you have various other spares ? Thanks Simon Duff
