  1. Nice find, congratulations. Recently I was watching some IWM videos and there were few with Dennis tippers, see here from about 0:50 minute mark: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/1060008462 also a nice one here: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/1060019478 and one more here: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/1060019512 Good luck with the resto, last year there was one Dennis for sale on this forum, do some reasearch.
  2. WOT6 engine cover for comparison, pictures saved from the internet. You could contact forum member Tom Watts who restored WOT6
  3. No, the WOT8 has a different engine cover and dash setup.
  4. The gearbox is a standard Ford V8 flathead one, so probably original part of your Fordson. There should be a an air compressor mounted on the right side.
  5. Good job on the cab. Following this thread with great interest as I will be going through that all on my WOT8 project. My cab virtually collapsed and lots of panels will need to be replicated. https://rotanazdar.cz/?p=7815 Keep going your good work!
  6. It seems your truck still keeps its original gearbox. It is a standard type Ford gearbox as below I think parts and bearings can be obtained at Macs for instance: https://www.macsautoparts.com/ford_mercury_early/transmission-and-driveline.html/?location=home_featured&crosssell=Homepage_Featured_Category_Transmission+%26+Clutch Just for your interest the WOT8 has the same gearbox with so called "remote control" - a tower like extension for the gear stick.
  7. Better visible here without the plate on my friends WOT8
  8. This the the bracket on my WOT8. It is a screw going through the rectangular plate to the round base.
  9. One thing that puzzles me a lot is this bracket. What is it for? Have not found the answer in any of my manuals. Anybody?
  10. Hi Seamus, great project you have there. On my WOT8 there is the cab number on a plate riveted to the cab rear crossmember behind the seats. It may have been changed on WOT6s though. I also have a little plate with Chassis contract number in front of the passenger. Look for the manual below (mine issued in 1945) as it is very detailed and contents a short section on Machinery equipment. Good luck with your project and looking foward to seeing any progress. P.S. this thread shows some engine conversion on WOT6
  11. Hi Ian, I have had other working comitments so have not done much more on it than fixing the chassis. Iam building a new workshop this year so planning to come back to it when I have enough space for the resto. But I like what you do on yours, very inspiring.
  12. A bit cheaper here Ian: https://www.vintagecarparts.co.uk/products/842-container-ignition-indicator-lamp I have recently done the dash on my Standard Flying 12
  13. Well done Simon, fantastic restoration. I wonder where you got he dash two-pin socket from, is it a replica?
  14. Hi, I had the same set and got a barrel replica made. An original almost impossible to find. I have all the dimensions. If you are interested PM me.
