  1. Indeed, apologies for the vague reference. I don’t know why I didn’t just say outright that lot 306 looks like a Bedford MWC tank. I Must have been having a cryptic moment after watching a Midsomer Murders episode. I doubt any of he pump gear is still in place though.
  2. Hmm. Lot 306 might be of interest to Bedford MWC owners.
  3. This one popped up today:https://www.frost.co.uk/ethomix-corrosion-inhibitor-additive-ethanol-protection/
  4. Try this for size. My late father in law had shown me an article in the Aston Martin Owners club magazine which mentioned this additive. This was a few years ago, so there might be other brands now. https://www.millersoils-shop.co.uk/eps-ethanol-protection

  7. Have they run out? https://marcusglenn.com/parts/daimler-ferret-fv-700-series/daimler-ferret-choke-cable
  8. Once again, thanks! Will let him know, and then he can decide what to do with them. I have a feeling he’ll just hang them up on his garage wall as a display, but at least we’ll know what they came off.
  9. Thanks Ron, thought you’d identify them. Muchly appreciated as always! Is the Westwood cap military or a civilian modification?
  10. Hi all. This afternoon I went to help a friend of mine clear out a garage, and amongst all the Jaguar parts he stockpiled over the last 40 years, we also found a motorcycle petrol tank and fork, which he’d completely forgotten he ever had, and subsequently, has no idea what they’re off. Would appreciate the collective wisdom on this forum to help identifying them. Just to confuse matters, the parts might not even be off the same motorcycle! Thanks in advance all.
  11. In fact, having access to facebook, the crowland lvt group have a copy of an old newspaper article up, which says that nearly 30 Buffalos were used. 16 were used on the first try, and after 3 were washed away, more were brought in to shore up the gap. Something which occurred to me, but were all the 30 or so used Buffalos? Could it be that 16 Buffalos were used first and then another amphibious type used, possibly “Neptunes” (see shortcut below) bringing the said total to 30 or thereabouts? The picture in the shortcut below seems to point to other types used, apart from Buffalos. https://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/news/history/fight-survival-year-great-flood-12720587 I just went into eddy8men’s thread on the subjeft, and yes, Neptunes were also used. So, it could be that 16 Buffalo type were used, and then augmented with Neptune LVTs.
  12. Care to qualify that statement?
  13. 16 “or so” makes more sense. It’s just that all reports seem to be taking the figure of 16 as the gospel truth. Sorry, the pedant in me is taking over again!
  14. Is that the same place? Because it seems the quoted number of 16 is a little off. I count 24 that I can see!
