  1. I watched it last night, bit cringeworthy if you ask me. The Irish guy who is trying to be American, doing high fives and slap punch handshakes.... If that re enactment at the end is one of their biggest shows, judging by the stalls they had it looked like a car boot sale compared to Beltring.
  2. Also don't forget that if you are using an exempt vehicle to tow an unladen trailer and its found that the trailer is "Laden" then the towing vehicle is no longer exempt AND the driver of the vehicle if the combination is over 8250 train weight would need a Class One HGV driving licence.
  3. Thanks mate, The truck has only done 3,500 miles and the box was only issued to 9 AAC for the last 2 years of its service life, the rest of the time it was at Donnington Storage depot. Good luck with your conversion. The Cummins is a very good engine so you should have a reliable truck...
  4. Hello mate, If you go onto my profile page and click on the Bedford pictures it tells you all about it on there. Thats the condition I bought it in, I haven't done anything with it apart from a new fuel lift pump and had the fuel lift pipe in the tank brazed as it fell out the union. Also put a new output shaft oil seal in the main gearbox and a full drop and renew of all oils and filters.
  5. Nice DAF you have there, has it got the Cummins? Regarding the body J bolts. The Army would have used these and NOT ratchet straps.... Someone has nicked them off the truck probably, as they are like rocking horse s*it.... If it was mine, I'd keep the tail lift and use it as a lift up to the door of the body you will be putting on. It will also add extra security. Here is my MJ, a Radar Repair Workshop.
  6. Please can members of the forum sign the E petition. It's to exempt the Air Ambulance from paying VAT on fuel for the Helicopters they use. https://submissions.epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/29349
  7. My Land Rover Defender is ex 51 Squadron, RAF Regiment. 20 Alpha.
  8. It has everything to do with making money. I haven't got a problem with vehicle safety, but come on, how much extra is the MOT going to cost now they have added all these extra items in the test? Considering most old vehicles have none of this stuff fitted, are they going to reduce the cost of the MOT for them? Of course they aren't. If a country like Canada can function perfectly normally with NO MOT, then I'm sure we can. Makes me laugh. Oh and by the way the NATO socket is 12 pin, so that wont be tested.
  9. Sorry to hear about your loss, especially at this time of year. I wish all affected my deepest sympathy.
  10. I think you will find KD is a 1986 number as my Bedford is KD and that's 1986. KE = 1987 KF = 1988 KG = 1989 KH = 1990 KJ = 1991 KL = 1992 - We have trucks at work that are KL and these are 1992.
  11. Yeah, I'm sure the Elf and Safety brigade would have something to say about guys up to their necks in water...
  12. Watch this series of short films on You Tube for some very nice Military porn in action. Part 5 is fantastic. A testiment to the quality of the trucks involved is at the end of the film. Brilliant. http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=bowmore+boiler+&oq=bowmore+boiler+&aq=f&aqi=g1&aql=&gs_sm=s&gs_upl=23700l24160l0l26374l4l4l0l0l0l1l162l575l0.4l4l0
  13. Hello Dave, Wow, they are some nice looking vehicles you have there. Thanks for the PM. They both look in excellent condition!! Has the Bedford been down rated or are you running it on HGV? The Land Rover looks the nuts too. Have you managed to see mine? You might be interested to know I live 5 miles away from RAF Benson. Andy
  14. As mentioned, try LW Vass. http://www.vass.co.uk/treads.asp
