    Sorry for not responding,  my notifications stopped for some reason.  It is a fast attack vehicle, the 3 seater dune buggy from desert storm. There are no numbers on the frame or motor so I cant get it checked out. 

    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

  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 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

    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

    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

    It may have been someone's attempt to uprate, but more likely just a bodge. Odd that your revenue weight is actually 100 kg lower.

    Incidentally, I've no evidence that twin rears were ever a factory option on K9s.

    By the way, what size are the tyres on those twin rears? They look from the photo more 7.50 x 20. If they are not the same size as the fronts, it will wind up in four wheel drive on a metalled surface or hard dry earth; first symptoms on a K9 are difficulty changing gear, can't shift to 2wd, truck wants to turn left.

  6. You Have in a very arse about face way answered the original posters question. No as a vehicle collector you aint got a cat in hells chance of owning and running an ex army man unless you have a degree in computer science and at least £1500 in equipment and some contacts to people in the Know. One question If  i bought a 4*4 man ex Mod could i strip it out and make it run turn of key with out out paying my life savings to Rhienmettall

     

  7. 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

    i need a clutch master cylinder if you have one

    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

    l think l have the answer   small number of the new fifty ton DYSON TRAILERS were in GERMANY for use with the new centurion and before been issued   generally 1950/51 these carrying  numbers in the YL SERIES also there were trials of the ELLIOT and GARROOD 80 ton trailer going on in conjuction

    think you will agree its an antar its the date thats wrong

    This trailer appears to have 4 axles with a tappered profile to the bed, which would put it in the 50 ton Dyson range. I think the profile of the towing unit is wrong for a Diamond T, I think the front axle overhang is to long. I now duck behind the nearest solid structure.

    100% that truck is not a diamond T indeed if i would go for Antar i question the date
