  1. 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'
  2. if your not happy with your hubcap, I believe I have a tidy one here.
  3. just come off a J type too, by the looks of it!
  4. 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
  5. Why not just melt some red candle wax and paint on the line with that
  6. 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
  7. Sat here in my office at my PC I have just caught sight of that Rotherhams oiler again and remembered about it. Will it do you to replace the squashed one?. Bar the threads it looks identical. Let me know
  8. The 5 tonner Bill Briggs had was also on roller eccentrics. I believe it went back to Fodens at some point and had them fitted.
  9. Dave, bust going up a rather large hill. The crank had bust and been welded in the 1930's, we believe after a full astern + steam incident with a child. This broke the crank, a trunk guide and a cab upright (2 1/2 square ash) at least. No other damage the second time. Though the engine did start to run backwards down the hill, got enough momentum to go over a chock. But it jackknifed the trailer and put a stop to things very quickly. About a month earlier father experienced a very large noise like something breaking whilst driving down the road, but despite spending half an hour
  10. Dave, having suffered a broken crank on the Marshall, I would check the centre portion between the webs also. Thats where mine broke
  11. The carb is very like an early Austin 7 one. Is it a 22mm?
  12. sorry for the delay, I forget to look every time I go to the shed (busy with this!) Amongst the treasure: Needs the thread doctoring
