  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. If you need a piston when rebuilding i know where there are some.
  4. 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?
  5. I thought shipping dimensions but the first line is quite long and out of proportion to the usual shipping dimensions I have seen?
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Hi N80s £130 20 in stock that's a non exchange price if you have old n80 injectors £30 less per injector
  10. Hi You can go to your nearest detroit dealer and buy n80 injectors easy enough or is it some other type of 80 injectors you need?
  11. If you convert a 2 axle 5th wheel military expandable 1969 trailer in to a caravan only no load space or items carried that is not incidental to living/staying in caravan gross weight 6500 kgs what mot is needed ie car mot like motor homes over 3500kg or goods vehicle test and plating or does it even need a mot?
  12. Pioneers is the one I was thinking of how you get it to be road worthy with no front brakes, I presumed there was a class it came under that allowed it to be used on the road with no frount brakes.
  13. Does anyone know when you can use a vehicle over 3.5 ton with no frount brakes fitted? Or any class of vehicle that exampts you from having them which is powered by a internal combustion engine? this is so you can use the vehicle on uk roads.
  14. Hi went to look at this today it is a bmk-150 not the bmk-150m which is the twin engine diesal version which also weighs more 3.8 ton the bmk-150 as in picture has 2 flat head six cylinder petrol engines in it. weight of the bmk-150 is 2.5 ton with no brakes on the retractable road wheels need some thing large to stop it in military use.
  15. I think Adrian should be writing the books !
  16. It certainly looks like a radial Sherman all the rear top deck looks correct and the rear plate has the cut out for the cranking handle (round rod with a pin through it) do you have a picture of the cutaway that is on the rear plate that you say is associated with radials. Grizzly cast hull Sherman's do have a scalped out section on the rear centre top. why I do not know?
  17. Hi was wondering the view of at what point a m51 becomes another model ie if the turret and gun is changed to a 76mm is it then it should be called a a m4a1 76 hvss? (That's if it was a radial) can it now be called for simplisty a m4 Sherman which after all it was before Israeli got hold of it and changed it from its war time guise. i think it is excepted that the engine does not mater as I haven't heard the m4 Sherman's that are now running the vt8-460 cummins being referred to as a super Sherman!. i have also heard that a m51 should be restored to a m51 as that is what it is
  18. Hi so it might be ok if he gets a civi trailer for the 1/2 track will have to watch weights as only 40 ton gcw. thanks for the info
  19. Hi just gone through hole thread found the information I was after in the last post which was the curb weight with rack thanks for that. i know some one that wants a daf 8x6 drops to transport a M3a1 Stuart (12.9 tons combat weight)and tow a m5 half track on trailer behind. what train weight has a drops that is tested and plated in the uk?

  21. I have a steam capstan winch of a ww2 ship about 3 tons and a engine about 2 tons near to Toronto would you have room and weight for these?
