  1. basically look at your licence to see what you can drive. Do you get reminders to renew that include a GPs form to complete
  2. 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
  3. 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

  8. Bit more fuel on the fire I am willing to accept this is a Diamond T and the illusion at the front end is caused by shadow camera angle etc. Indeed i think it is the only answer. So you guys out there have identified the tank i believe. So could this have been a private civilian company picking up a tank to take it to the North east were many where cut up. i know many of the civilian used cobbled up trailers made from ex mod parts
  9. from memory 40 yrs ago when i owned a civilian crusader it was the same cylinder as fitted to a land rover dont know which one. about 3 years ago seals went on our Foden EKA i went to a local dealer in ex mod landrovers he passed me a cardboard box full of rubber seals told me to pick which i wanted. and leave something in tea box. all where landrover master cylinder/slave seals and dust covers

  19. Rolling radius of tyres eg centre of hub to top of tyre = ? wheel base believe = 3940 mm ? centre front axle to front bumper overhang believe = 1314 mm ? centre front axle to rearmost of cab = ? centre rear axle to back of rear spring hanger = ? Chassis height from floor = ? say near middle of truck Chassis depth chassis width is chassis top flange straight back to front /parallel side to side from cab to rear one last ask when looking from side is top of rear wheel above/ below top of chassis rail Really would be a big help if anyone could advise on

  23. Posted Saturday at 06:14 PM Thanks for your reply’s. yes the vehicle is up and running and no noise when you depress the brake pedal Every body seems to be overlooking the fact there is no noise when pressing pedal so I would suggest no air getting to it
