  1. Good morning everyone! I'm desperately trying to register a jeep before I loose a potential sale, but I'm not having a lot of luck with the MVT. Who else can I ask to come out a provide a dating letter? Can any military vehicle club do it? Or only certain ones? Thanks, Rich
  2. Thanks, I'll turn it round so that the oiler is at the top. Im just confused as to the position of the rotor arm. Cylinder 1 is at tdc, both valves on 1 are shut, timing mark lines up, and both marks on the timing chain line up, so shouldn't the rotor be pointing to 5oclock, not 7?
  3. Good afternoon gents. I've just fit a new distributor onto a gpw engine. Does this look in the right position? The points are just starting to open, and would put no.1 plug lead between about 5 and 6oclock I've checked Google, but there seems to be a lot of conflicting info as to which way the rotor should be pointing for cylinder 1...
  4. Good morning all! I know absolutely nothing about wartime radios and components, so I'm hoping someone can give me a bit of education ... I've bought a 1944 GPW, which has this radio equipment in. It all looks original to me, so I would like to restore it as a radio Jeep. Are these parts in the photos correct for a ’44 ford? Or are they a later addition? What radio set would be correct? What other parts will I need apart from an antenna? Thanks, Rich
  5. What are peoples opinions on jeep electrical systems? I've restored a lot of jeeps, and they've always been 12v. My personal jeep is 12v, which in my opinion is much better than 6v because of the reliability. I've just bought a GPW to restore and sell which has all the original 6v system intact and working. Would you like to see it kept in its original 6v state? Or would you prefer to buy one converted to 12?
  6. Hello! I signed up here several years ago, but have never really posted anything. I recently rediscovered the site, and have spent a fair few hours reading through various posts. There's certainly a wealth of knowledge here!!! My names Richard, I'm 36 and from Emsworth in Hampshire. I own a '43 Ford GPW and a '42 Harley WLA, both if which I have fully restored. I love getting out in them, often driving/riding them hundreds of miles to get to shows and back I also own HD Customs & Classics which is a classic car garage based in Emsworth, specialising in military vehicle res
  7. Good morning everyone. I have imported a '44 Ford GPW which i now need to get UK registered. I have the California title that states its year of manufacture, does anyone know if that will be acceptable as proof of age? Or will i still need to get someone round to date it? Thanks, Rich
