  1. Hi it would be nice if the current post February 2021 vosa mot testing manual backed up the over 40 year exemption of the tyre rule . it would make it more black and white for road side checks and when you have to test your 40 year and older hobby vehicle.
  2. I thought this as the wording is referenced, goods ,commercial use. its the term goods that leads to interpretation. is a item carried termed as goods only if you are getting a reward for carrying it. does the item not become goods if it's carried for your own use?
  3. That is how I read the vosa mot updated manual ,if a hobby or any vehicle 3.5+ ton vehicle is presented for mot it has to have 10 year or less to pass. but why does government rules say any thing over 40 years is exempt from 10 year tyre rule knowing any 3.5 + ton post 1960 hobby vehicle or not needs to be tested . if they fail vechiles on tyres they should have worded that mot exempt vechiles are also exempt tyre 10 year rule?
  4. When testing a 1980 Bedford 4x4 mk would it fail on front steer axle tyres if they are over 10 years old ? 1 I have read that non comical use vechiles over 40 years old are exempt of the 10 year rule ,but in the vosa testing manual there is no mention of this so would a testing station fail it even though other government legislation says it is exempt. has any one tested a 3.5 ton + hobby vehicle that's over 40 years, post February 2021 test with older that 10 year tyres on the front steer axle?
  5. If a 3.5 ton + is used privately and 40+ years old registered as historic and you test it does the 10 year tyre rule on the stear axle still applie ?
  6. Thanks for that the hgv testers manual did not mention exemption because of speed? so a vehicle that can do over 25 mph and is over 8 metres pre 1 April 1986 needs side reflectors. surprising no exemption on year ,so things like a hippo and dukw and famo half track would need them on to the pre 1st April 1986 spacing legislation to be road worthy.
  7. Does any one know if there is any exemption for side reflectors on large vehicles due to age ? Ie does a scammell explorer or steam road going engine need them to be road worthy? hgv testers manual only mentions a certain lay out for them on a vehicle used before 1 April 1986 implying any vehicle needs them?
  8. If you need a piston when rebuilding i know where there are some.
  9. I can get the Whenever requirements for camouflage and concealment outweigh the requirements for recognition, the national symbol may be covered by lusterless olive-drab gasoline solvent paint, camouflage nets, oil and dirt, etc., or will beremoved. but the half track in the picture has a big white star on the hood so I do not think the small black star on the side is done for concealmen?
  10. I thought shipping dimensions but the first line is quite long and out of proportion to the usual shipping dimensions I have seen?
  11. I see on the half track just past the drivers door towards the rear there is a small black star within a yellow circle. why the black star not white? what would be all the stenciling past the black star towards the rear?
  12. Hi what's the brown stuff you have used between the running bord and step? I presume it's some sort af anti corrosion coating.
  13. Hi I have rebuilt 6 6046 twin packs with 2 valve heads and dynoed 6 engines with the n80 injectors fitted in two valve head but all engines had the later bigger port liners run fine. on a 4 hour full load run 245 hp 601 foot pound torque 2083 rpm blower pressure of 5.02 psi exhaust gas temperature 564 centigrade 1047 Fahrenheit.(each engine is nynoed on its own from a 6046) n80 and 4 valve head gave more hp and torque should have measured decibels in dyno room at full load that would be high! As you say would not want to run n80s with the original liners small surface area
