  1. Its gone to a home who were already restoring an incomplete similar vehicle. Importantly they have an appropriate (and old) body for it. I'm sure it will emerge in due course fully restored in an appropriate form.
  2. I used some of that sealant on the fuel tank of my Austin 7, some 20years ago. After having repaired a single hole with some epoxy. Its still going strong 21 years later.
  3. This makes me chuckle. The sale of the tank from a very famous uk scrap yard was very well known, even by me who only has a passing interest in military vehicles. Basically he bought it off Jack Hardwick, wasn't it in the late 1970's?.
  4. Dunno where the pics went Andrew, I assume Ive seen it on Facebook. Looks like you have a pretty complete Liberty B there now. This forum is very good, but its not high volume, so patience is needed with respect to interest or comment. Typically I visit approx once a week, not because I have no interest, but rather because I do, but if I visited daily there would generally be little to see.
  5. I had a good discussion with Richard Hallett about back axle oil some time ago. Specifically with regards to bronze components and my Austin 7. Castrol D140 is recommended, I was using Morris AG140 with no complaints. A very common substitution. His advice was similar to Daimlers, that a ISO 460 Steam cylinder/bearing oil is more or less an equivalent to the SAE 140 gear. A straight oil being direct equivalent, but a compounded oil was likely to be better. Given that like you I run a steamer, and have ISO 460 compounded bearing oil in stock (for the total loss system), I just use that now, for both steam bearings and Austin axles.
  6. Thats exactly what they are Richard. I've got 4 on my living van. Centurion Tank onwards. Actually termed 'Road wheels'. The idler is technically the undriven wheel at one end of the track. But everyone calls these 'idlers'
  7. if your not happy with your hubcap, I believe I have a tidy one here.
  8. just come off a J type too, by the looks of it!
  9. having done similar with ali, you need to cover the back of the plate, also the edges if your plate is side for side. Black marker or sellotape works fine. Anything left bare will get etched
  10. Why not just melt some red candle wax and paint on the line with that
  11. Yes, made out of a Bedford by the looks of it. From memory there are no 1914 Pattern Armoured cars about? The irish one and the one at Bovington are the 1920 pattern
