  1. There is a film about the great floods of 1947 which shows them also being driven into place on the river bank at Earith in Cambridgeshire. This was to fix a breach in the bank wall and they were filled over. I will look for the link if anyone needs it. About a dozen of them if I recall.
  2. Hi, whereabouts are you and how much please? Also looking for a toolbox, many thanks. Steve
  3. Hi, i am after mudguards etc. if you have them? Thanks
  4. Yes, I was told that it was a 40foot container full!
  5. An awful lot of military radio in this sale coming up on the 21st. ( and other militaria) https://auctions.hyperionauctions.co.uk/catalogue/7e73a5582f59f011ee33eacc5bfefd7a/b7c4d3a38dc0c91a3f6375615562b5ba/fine-art-antiques-sale-to-include-a-fine-collection-of-sil/?currentPageNo=8
  6. I have the 3/8 Milwaukee and love it for it's ability and lightness.
  7. The military Massey 35 tractor that was in really good nick made £13200 plus vat plus commission which is a lot of money, however although old it was little used. I had thought I would go to seven grand but I was a long way out!
  8. Looked yesterday, and it also has overdrive
  9. I have the correct dexion(NOS), wherabouts are you?
  10. The Fettle Box, the website can be found, these are the best I have found for all my stoves.
  11. What a wonderful find, very envious!
  12. Slowly, and small corrections if possible, fairly easy as you can see it all happening. I had a bar on the forks which made it easier to push and see. But often reversed from the tow hitch. But then I am used to a lorry and 4 wheel drag.
  13. I had one, didn't know the empty weight but it wasn't the nicest thing to tow on the road, I always had it in front steer only on the road as you should but I recall it wasn't much fun. I sold it a year later! It was great on the fields though.
  14. Having had eleven Champs in different states of repair over the years I now find they are a bit expensive for me. I wish I had kept my best one as then mint ones were only 3 to 4K, however now its a different story as for all military vehicles. If only we had hindsight!
  15. Still haven't found any 'green' paint on it though!
  16. They have said the same for me for my 1934 Rudge!
  17. Find a real tractor engineer, not a posh Dealership, they will take it apart and order seals from 'Seal UK' I expect and it will be put back together, Easy job to do but measurement of the seals is crucial if the numbers cannot be read. My way of doing it anyway.
  18. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/793029184533715/ Anyone seen this on Facebook marketplace, must be of interest, not many about. I don't know anything about the seller only it's in Stamford.
  19. Amazing, M20 are very nice. Yes, would have made a tidy sum today!
  20. Thanks for all your help, just to let you know I have managed to buy an Ariel WN/G 1945 which is the one I wanted. I liked the thought of an Ariel as they were liked by the troops. It needs a few jobs and should be ready for next season if all goes well!
  21. Yes, great day, I have done this run myself a few times.
  22. Yes, thanks for that, you would be correct and this is no good for me but thanks everyone.
  23. Snort is indeed a MVT member and has been for many years, however not on the Facebook page and I am waiting to be 'approved'. Until then I cannot see the bike but I thank you for the information and hopefully I will be able to see it soon as I am still looking ! Many thanks Steve
