  1. Richard, Quite a few years ago, I found small children to be good at this job...but suppose a wire brush on a grinder would work too!
  2. Excellent Richard. Do you think you'll be at Capel with the truck?
  3. My C60s Wrecker has headed West today. After 7 years of adventures. Thank-you HMVF who put me in contact with the Jordan.
  4. Also. Contract 8055 was the last contract for the "10 Cwt. 2-Wheeled, Lightweight, G.S.,No. 1, Mk. 2"
  5. Evening Jurgen, The key card is interesting. If I'm reading it correctly your trailer was from Contract number: S8055 and had the previous serial number 6212185. It would have been marked up as X6212185. I'm sure is was built and used in WWII. Have a look at one of my trailers to see what I mean re the numbers:
  6. Hi, Yes a British 10cwt Lightweight trailer. A No1 MkII. Looks like a very good project and eminently restorable. The number stamped on the chassis spine is a Post-war registration. May-be added later in its life as the basic trailer is identical to WWII versions, so well might be.
  7. Hi Jordan, Restored C60s Wrecker available. Correct 216 engine and all gear works. Lots of history. PM me if interested.
  8. Hi, Yes, that is a mid-late WWII Lightweight trailer hitch. It might be possible to adapt a later replacement ring and shaft to fit. John
  9. It obviously wasn't what we'd planned for VE Day (Guernsey 75th Liberation Tour), but positive comments from neighbours and passers by helped celebrate the important day.
  10. The chassis is in excellent condition. Just sand blast and paint
  11. Who'd have thought they were so common😉 Great to see another one saved. Was it also being used as a livestock field bowser?
  12. God to see one of these pumps to scale compared to the Jeep Dynamo.....smaller than Id imagined. Cheers
  13. Excellent! Great to have an original pump....interesting that its Canadian
  14. Will be in Guernsey with the the HUP
  15. Hi Richard...and here is the Bowser before you collected it from me. Great that we were able to reunite a chassis and bowser....but what we'd like to see is some current photos of progress!
  16. Recently acquired with some other parts. Two steering boxes I suspect came from British vehicles. Very corroded but may be a source of some useful parts. While the actual box looks identical, the arms are clearly different profiles
  17. Making my first visit on Saturday - if these photos are indicative of the effort put into the show by the organisers...it will be a great day.
  18. I read it today and wondered if I went to the same event as the author. I know the magazine has to make the best of it....but need to retain credibility too
  19. I am considering selling my C60s Wrecker. Owned it for 5 years. Lots of history, new clutch. Lots more photos. Located in Surrey.
  20. Went yesterday. Took no vehicles again this year. No one can control the weather, but many traders packing up by lunchtime. Even the one of the largest living history displays was being dismantled at 2pm. For anyone who has seen the show change, all appeared very "flat". Did enough public pay to see the "spectacle" to keep it going?
  21. Very good. Great to see another Water trailer restored. One of only a handful in the world (that we know of!)
  22. Worth a look: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WW2-British-Dashwood-20cwt-1-ton-GS-trailer-for-restoration-Military-Vehicle-QL/233256271219?hash=item364f283d73:g:KPEAAOSwsExcXZIS
  23. Hi Pete, I have this original Sept 1943 Chrysler Corporation of Canada "Operating and Spare Parts Manual 200 Gal. Water Tank Mounted on Dodge T222 4x2 Chassis". Do you have one? If you are interested please pm me.
