  1. Could be Simon, wasn't sure what these are called so I go for a description!? but I agree, I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get some made up or modify some 1/2" x 3 1/2" bolts I found on ebay Thanks
  2. Some evening work this week on the springs, I will replace the bolts with the correct carriage bolts, on order will swap them once they arrive. No idea what these are called, thin brass tubes that have perished And, re-assembled one set of brakes Compare with how these were, only things I had to replace were the oil seals and the grease!
  3. So, I think I've run into a problem that I had overlooked until now While disassembling the trailer, I managed to shear all but one of the the spring hanger bolts, even with heat, penetrating oil and lots of gentle persuasion, they all (bar one) sheared they are a 1/2" BSF grease bolt, does anyone have any idea where I could come by 5, preferably 6 of them? I have bought a load of 3.1/2" bolts so I can continue re-assembly, but in the long term I'd like the correct grease bolts.. Any help welcome..
  4. I finished welding the top during the week Over the weekend I painted the right side, flipped the chassis over it in its rig (sounds easy doesn't it!), cleaned and painted the left side Once that was done, I hoisted it up again and dismantled the jig so the chassis is back on stands ready to re-assembly The rig was then dismantled, I now have a load of kindling..! Loads of parts prepped ready for re-assembly Doing this single handedly and had a few hairy moments flipping the chassis over and getting off the rig.. but should be fairly smoot
  5. Fantastic thread Chris.. I'd love a halftrack... Maybe one day!!
  6. Great weather last weekend and I actually had time on my hands so got on with some work on the trailer Started to clear off paint and surface rust with a wire wheel on a grinder Big nasty rusty plate on the underside Surgically removed the plate and found more.. Chopped all that out and started adding new good metal And a nice clean new plate added Not the neatest welding but should do the job..! More to do on the upper side front All cut out ready for fabricating incerts..
  7. I humbly apologise for my behaviour.. I am working to the resolve the issue as soon as possible..
  8. The one in the link I've sent is £90.. works for me..
  9. I bought a cheapy one off ebay, put it on and a gust of wind literally ripped it off..! Not as expensive as mentioned above, but I then bought this one off ebay designed for a CJ Jeep so similar profile Its tough, breathable and covers down below the wheels and has cross straps to keep it in place. I have the hood bars up without the hood so it all but keeps it off the jeep from the windscreen back Its on the Jeep out of the garage now as my wifes Nissan Figaro has developed a leaky roof an that can't possibly stay out in the cold!!! I do check now and then and so far everythin
  10. Have you thought of contacting the Royal Signals Museum in Blandford, they may be able to help you out?
  11. The PTD had the crypto fill in it, the CIG was the actual encryption unit, you used to fill the CIG, then remove and lock your PTD away, next power failure or wipe, you then used the PTD to refill... or along those lines Having worked in crypto for a good few year, I have seen these at shows and museums and get a bit twitchy!! I guess as Ptarmigan is no longer in use its probably all declassified and available but not much use without the Switch to programme the PTD... No friends in Crypto...!
  12. Snap... literally! I had the same issue Have a look at this chap in Holland https://staman.nl/parts/jeep/group-6-electrical/0604
  13. Just a word of caution on vehicle trackers. The cheap ones you buy on ebay are based on mobile phone technology and use GPS tracking. A lot of the more sophisticated car thieves now have GPS scramblers/blockers that will stop you being able to track your vehicle.. There are companies out there that use both GPS and VHF tracking as well, may cost a bit more but worth looking at These guys are good, I had a mate who bought a used caravan, had it stolen from his drive, the police then told him to check with these guys to see if it had had a tracking device on it. He called them, t
  14. Thanks... it started in a similar state as yours! Hopefully a bit of inspiration!
  15. no worries, looked like you had slotted it in back to front!
