  1. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AEC-MATADOR-SCAMMELL-14-00-x-20-TYRES/124405471581?hash=item1cf724d95d:g:TGgAAOSw6AhfgiDz
  2. 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.
  3. WOT6 engine cover for comparison, pictures saved from the internet. You could contact forum member Tom Watts who restored WOT6
  4. No, the WOT8 has a different engine cover and dash setup.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. Better visible here without the plate on my friends WOT8
  9. This the the bracket on my WOT8. It is a screw going through the rectangular plate to the round base.
  10. 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?
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. Well done Simon, fantastic restoration. I wonder where you got he dash two-pin socket from, is it a replica?
  15. 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.
  16. Wow, fantastic example of craftmanship with a great sense for detail. No wonder he will not make any spare, so much work, all in brass, that would cost fortune to make these extra for sale. Would be great if he could provide some basic dimensions for anyone to make their own though, I am surely capable to make a couple for myself 😉 How has he done the lid?
  17. I will also follow this post with great interest, same as Alan I am also planning to make a couple of filters for my 180 gallon water bowser project. There seemed to be few attempts by various people to replicate this but I have never seen any output. Richard are you also plannig to make the cast iron plate with Stellar company logo etc? This would be worth making in more examples as I am sure there would be many people interested. That would require borrowing the original filter from someone though. Dusan
  18. Very nice kit Ian. Pitty that not affordable for me. Shall you have any other leftovers like the hose-pans or genuine taps, I might be interested. Cheers, Dusan
  19. I am looking for a complete passenger door for Fordson WOT8 or WOT6. Any condition considered for a restoration. Thanks for any offers. Dusan
  20. Wow what a set up! Quite a load at the back. considering the 25pdr weights over 1600kg.
  21. Thanks for the pictures Tony. Is that a kind of 25pdr portee on the first one? Could you please take a shaper shot of that one. Cheers.
  22. Fabulous! Never seen or heard of the ladder project, very interesting. Also like the factory pictures. Would there be a better detail of the spare wheel holder of WOT8 please?
  23. Wow, these are absulutely superb Tony, thanks!!! Looking forward for more when you get the scanner working. First picture shows the WOT8, one of the 868 going to Russia. Notice that grill modified for cold weather. Second and third picture would be from WOT6, nicely shows the AA hatch and the rear lights setup with socket. Not sure what the trucks in the port are? Looks like Austins or Bedfords to me, quessing from the petrol tank shapes.
  24. Hi GTB MAN, I would be interested in any WOT8 and WOT6 pictures please. Thank you.
