  1. A common problem of vehicles dying in warm weather, no one ever thinks to check the position of the exhaust manifold hot spot, it probably is set in the Winter position so in summer overheats the inlet manifold and causes vapour locks, they often can be difficult to reset as they seize up in the manifold
  2. until

  4. This is another style of military Dodge adjustable seat, but think the adjuster is similar, going to be a diificult part to find in the uk, ..you will have to fabricate some brackets to mount the seat in a fixed position as per the first pic
  5. Nice to see the WC42 out, It was a very sad news to read your Fathers Obituary in the MVT magazine, He helped me out a lot with information on my WC11 Panel van I restored some years ago
  6. Duplication, there is already a post about the Crusader and answers
  7. Often Jeeps that underwent full rebuilds by the military were re -stamped with a new chassis number
  8. the chassis number looks to be correct, expand the picture and the number starts GPW, it should be prefixed with a star symbol which is hidden under the wing panel mount
  9. It can't be 1945, the Standard Vanguard was'nt launched untill feb. 1948, the pick up truck was launched later that year but the first cars were for export only, so it would have been a while before the RAF took delivery of Vanguard pick ups so the photo must be sometime from 1950 on
  10. Alas NOS gasket sets are seldom any use anymore, if they got damp then dried out and become brittle and shrink, I have recently thrown away some similar ww2 gasket packs
  11. A jeep tows ok on an A bar, put the transfer lever in the midway, neutral position then its not turning the gear box
  12. Yes its ok to tow a gmc, if flat towing on a rope the brakes will be heavy with no servo assistance
  13. The Sea Fury crashes after engine failure, it was only a few years ago it was badly damaged following another engine failure crash landing https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-somerset-56920390?fbclid=IwAR3hBvJ4fQ0fNRfqfBk3rb61m_YKyckNolfHYiK1bZsRdYs84wXJCHfVWbU

  16. I can remember years ago when that radar trailer was still complete..ish in a poor state then, and well vandellised,. it was then burnt out in a large fire, which burnt the tyres and reduced the body to the pile of twisted rusty scrap it is now ...below is a link to a complete rusty but Original identical radar trailer that has been saved and still had most of its radar equipment intact too so made it a feaseable proposition to restore http://www.anti-aircraft.co.uk/restoration_No3Mk2radar.html
  17. make sure the left hand 4 wheel drive lever is in the Opposite Forward 2 wheel drive position too
  18. The high/low transfer lever is in the midway neutral position, hence no drive. ..pull the transfer right lever back
  19. It was an executors estate sale there was no reserve its up to the vendor to decide if the price was acceptable,...I would think yes..
