  1. working one one of these body's for my Wireless truck , then will start with the light warning one that's just a little bit different.
  2. Just to post this link for the Belgian liberation parade for September 2019, possible to link up with the 30 corps run .
  3. Get a bit desperate, it's a long wait for the metal panel work. Needed to fettle a bit on the rear body for ease of mind. Started to make wouden bits for the roof section , on the Sample body (late model) the front- centre and rear roof crossmember are complete in wood. This is made of two rounded bits and on to these side bits is fixed the roof crossmember. I will need to make 7 crossmembers and some have a metal reinforcement and the in between member are not fitted with wooden outsides but have a angled metal support , so in total I need to make 8 angled bits from metal for the roof and made a copy from a good crossmember and need to produce 6 extra crossmember from the model I made.
  4. had a little display with the Trailer , equipped as a battery charging unit. The Petter generator and 1250 Watt switch panel with some battery's . Pity that I don't have de lead that been used between the generator and switch panel. If I find the right electric cable I have a working battery charging combination .
  5. Original colour will be a problem on this vehicle, past throw so many hands and is for from original. The two vehicles that I am working on have seen a lot of modifications and on this one there is some very clear green base colour ( to bright to use in military service) So I presume the bright green was a base coat .
  6. If by coincidence there is some radar stuff for sale as in the pictures ( aerial, receiver , documentation) we are always interested.
  7. This is a link to a complete early warning set up, but the lorry is Fordson, very nice details in these pictures. http://roverjoe.com/eng/_FordsonWOT2/index.html
  8. For the moment very slow progress on the Morris , looking to put some metal plate on to the wooden construction . A friend will make the front and rear louvres in to the plate work but for the moment he is to match involved in building custom cars, Did fiend some nice seats for the radio box, one is the right radio operator seat with a folding back side the second one will go in to the early warning Morris.
  9. hello , still have some screened ignition bits for Bedford engine . have a look at the picture , these are surplus to me. Guy
  10. Yes the generator is running , just some issues with fuel line and petrol tap.
  11. hello I am looking for a connecting cable for my Petter 1250W generator and the switchbord . The picture of the lead is from a friend , so not mine but that's the type I am looking for, The extra pictures of my generator and switchboard that I need to connect with this cable to have a working battery charging unit .
  12. Indeed, as Richard explains the setting are crucial . Not all the instruction manuels have the same settings , for my Ql I used the settings out of a original workshop manual. Good luck . Guy Labbe
  13. The dealer is D. van Dam and the engine is in there Herkenbosch warehouse , they have a website but the engine is not on it, www.dvandam.nl I have now links with this dealer . Guy
  14. There was a Tornycroft engine still in the crate at a military vehicle dealer in Holland,
  15. Still can use a tail lamp for my Morris C4 project.
  16. The engine is probably Morris commercial unit .
  17. Hello, I have the remains of the axillary on board generator mounting base on loan out of a Morris W/T box. It looks like the base frame is fitted on the wireless body floor ( very rusty) and connected to to top frame with the same type of rubber mounts used on wireless set 19 base frames. I really think that there is need for extra sliding part where the generator is fitted on and this part can then be blocked with the clamps on the frame ? Took some pictures with a chore horse generator just temporarily fitted over this frame with the top clamps fitted on to the generator frame work. Can somebody help on this problem , is there a extra mounting base in existence for a chore horse are is there a different axillary generator on board ? To my knowledge all the bigger generators to a chore horse need the extra switch panel to make it a working battery charger so I doubt that there is a bigger generator on board . The measurement on the top base are 16 1/2" wide by 21" long.
  18. Yes you are right Maurice, I have one Canadian wheel on the Morris but will keep this one as spare wheel. Just need to order a new tyre for my extra British rim that I have.
  19. That's really strange that these were so difficult to fit on the rim, I have the same on my Morris C4 and had now problem to fit them on the rims . Yes I used a lot of soap and some pressure to have them right on the rims . No shaving of the tyre was needed , and the rims are the standard 16" ones.
  20. That's what we need for the back set up for are early warning Morris. Never thought that there was a complete early warning around !
  21. hello . I was wondering if these side lights where a original fitment on the CDF models. It's just that I have a new light like that and didn't know where it was used, for sure it's a great Morris you have there !
  22. some extra pictures, also looking to construct the roof section for the moment.
  23. the side and the rear section are ready to receive some new plate work, just made de wheel arches for both sides of the box . Looking to construct the upper section of the front wall , just need some more information and measurements for the front windscreen.
  24. Never seen a picture off a set up like that, on the very few information I have about the equipment in the radio box most are with a set 19 with are without HP unit. For this other project I am still looking what a early warning (radar) looks like in the inside of the box? Guy
  25. Great picture , looks like a late one with the wheel slings on it. any extra info with the picture?
