  1. david1212, It is the original tap. I've got it sorted now & in the block with some sealant. Maybe just worn on the end few threads. We'll see how it goes when up & running again, Thanks for your interest. cheers Pierre
  2. Great work 67burwood,loving your fabrication methods & results. I had to use the angle iron trick for some of my civvy Bedford body repairs & it works well. Your right, with all this type of fab work it takes time to nut out how to tackle it. I'm no expert on welding, but I'm sure someone on this forum will have the answer for you (& me). Watching with great interest cheers Pierre
  3. Thanks Wally, I did look at that, but the taper on the drain cock diameter threw me a bit. thanks for the confirmation cheers Pierre
  4. Hi, can anyone help with the thread size & form of the coolant drain tap on the passenger side rear of the Bedford 28HP block. The drain cock thread looks tapered & measures around .390" nominal diameter & TPI lines up with 28TPI gauge? Doesn't seem to line up with anything standard on my thread charts. The block has been cleaned out but the thread in the block needs chasing out as the drain cock locks up after a few threads. My parts book doesn't give the thread detail of this item. advice appreciated cheers Pierre
  5. Hi Rampant Rivet, sent you a message. cheers Pierre
  6. Lovely work a credit to you. pardon my ignorance but what does WOT stand for & the number 6? Pierre
  7. Wow Sam, that sounds like another massive project. You sure can pick the toughies!😄 All the best with it, look forward to the progress. cheers Pierre
  8. What a superb looking brute of a truck. Great job Sam, its a credit to you have watched this thread with great interest. cheers Pierre
  9. Zero-Five-Two, have been watching from afar, great work, looks fantastic. That mug sitting on there reminds me when I worked at the Chrysler Plant here in Adelaide, the Japanese took it over in the 80's & we produced the Mitsubishi Galant & engine. The main thrust of the advertising was that you could balance a glass of water on the engine & not spill a drop!! 😄 Look forward to the next installment cheers Pierre
  10. Hi Chris, love this project of yours. You just couldn't have a vehicle like that from the fields of France without some trace of "battle damage". Watching with great interest Pierre
  11. What a beauty. Keep the patina & history. Tidy her up & get her running otherwise it will just be another shiny truck (IMO). Good luck, will watch with interest Pierre
  12. Great looking Tanker, you've done a fantastic job congrats. cheers Pierre
  13. Hi, can anyone confirm if the white paint used on the inside of a Butler rear Tail light housing on a K Model Bedford should be gloss or matt? Would Chrome paint be brighter? Not going to LED. thanks Pierre
  14. Lovely work there Pete. As they say "It's a bit like eating an Elephant, one small mouthful at a time". 😦 That windscreen surround & scuttle will be a test. Watching with great interest regards Pete from OZ
  15. What an amazing record of vehicles & equipment. I to, am surprised at the number of private vehicles. I note also a number of K Model Bedfords with insignia which I assume were "requisitioned" by the army.(eg: last video at 12.05) as most military Bedfords had the square nose. Some of those vehicles would have taken some shifting by jeez! 😮 Thanks for sharing Pierre
