  1. Thanks again Clive. I would be very grateful if you could scan the wiring diagram. My ambulance is late series2A having been made in Dec1972 and eventually completed by Marshalls early 1973. However it seems to embody some Series3 features so I am very confused. A wiring diagram would be a great help. Doug.
  2. Hi and thanks for your help. The bumperettes shown on the milweb link are the ones I am after and I have asked Blanchards if they have any. The ambulances seem to be a nightmare to get definitive answers about as they all seem to be different in some way. So far I haven't seen any 2 which are identical. The good news is that I managed to get an original Notek light which I was freeing off in the vice when it slipped out and smashed on the floor. Ho hum.
  3. Thank you Clive. Unfortunately I have been unable to obtain any vehicle manuals for the ambulance which is a major inconvenience as I have no idea about the correct wiring for a start.
  4. Hi, I am after a set of bumperettes for the front bumper of a late series Marshalls ambulance. These were to protect the 5 inch diameter Notek blue spot spotlights and consist of 2 angle pieces on either side, which bolt to the front of the bumper, and which are held together by a strip of metal across the top. These seem to be difficult to source so I would consider making them if I had a set of drawings.. I would be grateful for any help with either drawings or a set of the real thing. cheers Doug.
  5. Tanks Paul, I had a great chat with Tim and will be in contact again with a view to getting a BSA generator . I wonder if you could email me on douglasmatheson@btinternet.com. Tim suggested that I send you some details about a Saracen which I have for sale.Regards Doug.
  6. I have recently acquired a 300 watt BSA CHorehorse generator which is in bits and I am trying to rebuild it however I have no parts diagrams or technical data. Does anyone have access to either? the immediate problem is how to assemble the crankshaft to give the correct valve timing. Any help would be most appreciated.
  7. Hi, I have a gearchange assembly if you still need it and may have the connecting rod too . Also an amber lens. I am thinning out my Ferret spares so now is the time if you need stuff. I have an incomplete commanders seat which needs springs and one or two components which you can have very cheap if you are stuck. cheers Doug.
  8. Thinning out my radio bits and pieces so selling off the 19 Set accessories. You can offer me if you like but I was thinking around £25 for the variometer ( rotates but missing the end cap), £40 for the control box,( very good inside and out), £85 for the No10 aerial base ( nos ), £15 for the morse key and plug, etc.19SETGRILLE.html
  9. I understand that DAIMLER made the Fox prototypes in the hope of getting the production contract which went to ROF Leeds. That finished Daimler as a maker of military vehicles. I am not aware of any ALVIS components making their way into military vehicles though the Saladin disc brakes are identical to those in the Daimler Armoured Car of WW2.
  10. CHAMP TRAILER wanted. I am after a period Champ trailer with the adjustable towing eye. Condition not critical but must be restorable. Ideally situated in Scotland, the further North the better.
  11. This sounds useful. How far back are you going.? This is a very confusing subject ( to me anyway) so look forward to seeing the fruits of your labours.
  12. I have a GPMG cleaning kit for sale which is complete and in it's wallet. Some nos components and all in good condition. Asking £50 or near offers. Also have some other gun tools which I can't identify one of which looks like an extractor for jammed cases. Lastly there is a GPMG gas plug in excellent condition .
  13. From the ones I have seen recently I reckon you would have to pay at least £5k to get a reasonable one. So many are parked outside with the drain plugs fitted and have become write-offs as the brakes, engine and transmission have filled with water. You want a good runner as B81s are starting to get scarcer. I wish I could afford one as they are amazing vehicles to drive and the sound of that exhaust is to die for.
  14. Result !! Great news . I also put some flushing fluid through the Champ but I am not convinced it did any good.
  15. I had a similar problem with my Champ which had obviously overheated badly before I got it. The only cure ultimately was to take the head off and remove all drains and hoses and flush with a hose down every orifice I could fine until the water flowed freely and clearly. Same for the radiator which should free off ( try boiling water).
