  1. loads of companies will condition for you if you send it to them
  2. Suggest you get sight relevant pages out a workshop manual and follow instruction. RR engine fitted is one of easiest to bleed.
  3. when you mean cant bleed injectors do you mean return to tank (no need) injector pipes it will only spit out when engine is wanging over
  4. All i can suggest is the very dark are shadows. So the three horizontal across the bottom on second pic could be same as horizontal trucks. may be AEC workshops
  5. I thinks this ranks along side make sure you replace your continental quilt and tires before they stop working. Who knows ? ????? You have options if your in the know do whats best. If not make your decisions when the facts are imposed on you
  6. have just been on site forget any army part nos it will will be down to you searching to find one that looks right if i remember right dont give up try again
  7. If you check with Donaldson Filters Hull who supplied as original air filters and casings or after market parts for all uk manufacters of everthing vehicle related.. Have not looked on there site for years but give it ago it will direct you towards an agent who can maybe help.
  8. well if you cant check it out neither can anyone any one else so if you want it it get it bought if not stop posting so as not to be getting other naive people wetting their pants
  9. nearest i can think of is austin westminster 6 potter engine was fit in morris and austin k9 dont know what models prior to that just loked at profile see you have k9 so should be easy to check
  10. to original poster my reply is going to upset someone or get me banned off HMVF site. But here goes the whole back story is a complete fabrication to pander to the naive longings of someone who wants to buy an overpriced item laid under a sheet. if you want it go buy it get a receipt.
  11. basically look at your licence to see what you can drive. Do you get reminders to renew that include a GPs form to complete
  12. my feeling is the dvla only need to know the address of the owner not where the vehicle is kept. They do this so they can keep Track and inform owner and relevent authorities when there is need to contact owner. Nobody gives a toss where the vehicle is even the insurance companies only ask is it stored in a garage not were
  13. Little tale of woe about two vehicles not Man that happened about 8 years ago. Two Turkish Iveco artics pulled into a services near to where i live for fuel and overnight stop. Their cards where not accepted for fuel so they paid cash for overnight stop. They then parked up up and got a container and sucked 25 litres out of one and put it into the other.Next morning one started up and drove away. the other would not start. local Iveco agent was called out to diagnose fault.about 6 oclock in evening we were called out to tow artic to Iveco agent 4 miles away. Prepared to tow prop of suspended jumped up parking warden said he had over stayed his welcome £120 before he could leave. driver paid Towed 4 miles to iveco agent computer plugged in all sorted 20 minutes . prop shaft replaced ready for off. Problem one that had less fuel in than night before compter reckoned it was leaking derv and such a fire Hazard. Why no fix on site lap top only works inline of site of a transponder cemented in to wall at Iveco agent total bill for whole cock up will have been around £1300
  14. apologies just trying to find a picture to put on and remembered it was a morris MRA1 i put the twin wheels on. Could not find pictures either
  15. i can vouch for above statement i put a set of twin wheels of a commer artic on mine believe 10.50 x20 rolling radius was roughly the same no problem with transmission wind up. but sheared n/s half shaft twice and wrecked diff once in a year. But that was probably due to some of the insane jobs we tried to do with it on recovery
