  1. I can only confirm that, I fitted QL rim to my WOT8, and have one from CMP Ford, they are all the same.... Barry Ring offers new 10,50x20" T-grip repro tyres or you can fit 11-20" bar grips if you can find any.
  2. I have these two pictures from the internet. On the period upper picture you can see the brush and cup. The last picture shows the 180gall bowser equipment from the manual, you can see the cup there too.
  3. I doubt that it is SCC15 as I think the Olive drab is darker and was first introduced in April 1944 whilst these tins showed up in 1943. I may be wrong but I think it is closer to the Khaki Green G3 which was used in early war years.
  4. Hi, yes these are authentic WWII tins for percussion caps used in different types of booby trap switches, time pencils etc. The caps are used to light up an instagenous fuse, cordtex or safety fuse or can be put into a detonator like No.27 and.then inserted into a plastic explosive like Nobel 808, PE No.2 etc... Often used by the SOE but also by sappers. The tins themselves are not very rare, unlike the caps. Here with the No.2 MkII pressure switch example.
  5. It is Fordson WOT8 not 6. And as the number on the doors does not start with "L" and there is no unit sign, it is probably in Dutch service.
  6. and the float. The seller thinks it is cork inside but as the manual states wooden float I think there might be some light wood inside like balsa ?
  7. There was a nice set of spares for water bowser for sale on one of the FB groups. The seller stated post-war, but in my opinion the strainer and float are the same pattern as WWII. Unfortunately someone was faster then me and the set sold. The seller was kind enough to send me some pictures with a messure of the above items and was ok for me to share these. I wonder if the mag and the scoop are WWII pattern for water purrifying chemicals?
  8. For some reason the aliexpress links do not work when copied but found the same lamp on ebay here for double the price of aliexpress though: https://www.ebay.com/itm/373308000163?hash=item56eae407a3:g:jvEAAOSwd0RhNb1W I attached the picture of the lamp in case the link did not work either. With the rear lights, it is better to go for safety first and mount non-original bigger lights to be seen on todays roads, one need to consider that our trucks are slow and camouflaged. These have steel housing and are LED. Nothing for purists but as I wrote, safety first here 😉
  9. The original light set up for WOT6 is pictured in this thread: The original lights were ok for dimming during the war but not sufficient today, I think that`s what REME 245 had in mind. A friend bought these chinese LED lights for his Bedford and they look great. Steel housing and very good illumination. Cheap too. Have no indicators so these would need to be fitted extra. The link seems not to be working so go to www.aliexpress.com and search for Taillight For Harley 883 Sportster Dyna Cafe Racer Bobber Custom Brake Stop Tail Light (variant in black housing) With the pick-axe mount I have the same on my WOT8, same round one, so that must be original. There could have been more pick-axe variants perhaps.
  10. Hi Rob, I have the drawing of the aiming post. Will PM you.
  11. I think the sieve might be too rough for the smaller lumps and you need to filter the paint through something finer. I use nylons and it works just fine. (don`t tell your wife and hide the leftovers well 😄) Or buy a proffesional paint filter.
  12. Would this one fit? https://www.vintagecarparts.co.uk/products/867-window-lift-channel
  13. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AEC-MATADOR-SCAMMELL-14-00-x-20-TYRES/124405471581?hash=item1cf724d95d:g:TGgAAOSw6AhfgiDz
  14. 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.
