  1. Chassis is like-for-like, so its acceptable. 👍 Alec.
  2. Is there an external water supply or is there a reservoir/drip-valve sitting in the top of the generator assembly? Alec.
  3. Hi Folks, I have recently purchased a Land Rover IIB Forward Control. In its past it was owned by a gent called Charles Summerscales who owned/operated Summerscales Army Surplus near Bradford, he used it to go around Military shows/events selling items. It had a fairly distinctive look back then! I wondered if anyone remembered the FC or even has photos of it from the past. Mr Summerscales: Leads on owners pre-Summerscales would also be nice to know for the history file. Cheers, Alec.

  4. Yes, i'd be interested 👍 Alec.
  5. Thats the one! Well, two of them 🙈 Alec.
  6. Have they got more than one 452...…...? 😁 Alec.
  7. Rangie


    Nice Mk3, good project! Alec.
  8. Price on the pair of Jeep books? Alec.
  9. Wanted Trailer T-Plate with the reflective buttons. Any condition considered, thanks.
  10. Looking for 8 of these Sankey/Brockhouse/ Lorry fitment rope hooks if anyone can help? Hook is nominally 3.4" long, 0.9" wide and the mounting holes are 1/4" on 1" spacings if that helps. Alec.
  11. Wanted Service Manual and parts lists for the Meadows 4DJ 420 engine, as fitted to various generators etc from the early '50s onwards. Thanks, Alec.
  12. Keep an eye on ebay. There are 15L and 25L versions. It is a similar system to the British Haybox/Insulator system. An insulator can hold a pot-stand, frying pan and cooking vessel. Fry your meat/onions whatever, put it in the cooking vessel, bring to the boil for however long and then put in the insulator for a predetermined minimum time to cook through/keep hot. Happy hunting, I have found some of a 25L system. I'm mainly looking for the Hydra stuff but will pick up the BVB if it appears for reasonable money. The frying pan is called a Verbratpanner, yep, a sausage pan! Keep CCS updated with your stove adventures, mind! Alec.
  13. Classic Camp Stoves is worth a look, there are translations for the BVB there. Alec.
  14. No, not an angry cat or anything Jaguar related...... I'm after a Growler armature tester if anyone has one lurking unused? PM with details thanks, Alec.
  15. Please try to understand. I have a 2-hole trivet. Ultimately, if it comes to it I will have a crack at making a triple one. I have burners, 3 & 6 gallon dixies, insulators, ovens, chefs box, urns, fry plates, misc kit etc etc. I would like to find an original 3-hole (or another 2-hole), in any condition, to use with my set-up. Thanks for all your suggestions but they are not what I am after, cheers. Alec.
