  1. Hello all, Does anyone know what the track rod ends are, size, designation, are they used on anything else. I am after 4 (2 left, 2 right hand thread) for my Rubery Owen (FV2500) 4 wheel trailer. they are female threads with external threads on the steering tubes. Many thanks Nigel
  2. Good luck with the tank, it got my pig running on its fuel tank. Nigel
  3. More wonderful history you have saved there, all subjects that are not usually available. Great stuff, Nigel
  4. Some steel wire from an armoured cable works well, as soft. The pipe is open ended and when petrol is left for years it does leave black sticky deposits. You may be able to access the pipe opening by removing the drain plug. Wire is best as removes anything in the pipe, as compressed air will take the easiest path. Both will be a good combination. all the best Nigel.
  5. That looks very interesting, my Pig was converted from a Hornet. Best wishes Nigel.
  6. Fantastic information, thank you for sharing, Nigel
  7. Sounds interesting topic as many vehicles run the generators in the military set up. May I ask do you have a photo of your Humber 1 Ton. Many thanks Nigel
  8. Fantastic information, is there anything more to see : Report No F T/B 929 Truck 3/4 Ton Landrover Malkara power supply please.
  9. Very interesting topic, colour schemes are a talking point as there seems to be numerous shades to every basic colour ie nato green.
  10. Far more robust system, water proof, spark plugs are quality as is the whole system. Once you get thinking head on and instead of pulling the plug leads off by hand, its a spanner. Better starting as 24 volts are used and when running drops to 12volts.
  11. Could induce a spin on braking and steering erratic on corners, hence not allowed to mix the two types. I have some cross plys 750x16 of various treads, pm me please if you haven't got any yet.All the best Nigel, near Sheffield.
  12. That will be fine, just make sure the field of the dynamo has been sparked to earth for negative earth or positive earth.
  13. Try one off an old Land Rover or Morris Minor, my Diamond T 980 regulator didn't work, fitted a Morris Minor one on flying leads and works well.
  14. Hello to a fellow 1 Ton truck owner. Lovely truck with good view from the driving seat with its high seat position. I have the Humber types, 1 ton Truck and a Pig. Yours is larger and easier to work on as a heavy duty standard type with axles and springs. Enjoy it and have a smile while in the driving seat. All the best Nigel.
  15. Have you any information on the RB44 ford cab tenders there, as to where they served, type of engines and manual or auto gearboxes, Many thanks Nigel.
  16. Hello Clive, that is quite a list, think the main thing is how the rotation and elevation of the radar works. Chassis with removal of the wheels. Photos, for storage of items and equipment if you can help please. Nigel
  17. Hi all, I am looking for information, EMER's on the Green Archer Radar system and Trailer, does anybody have any for sale. Will be starting to clean and get mine ship shape shortly. Many thanks Nigel.
  18. hi, How many hubs have you got ? Are the wheel studs Right Hand Threads ? Are there any oil seals fitted to the rear of the hubs ? many thanks Nigel
  19. You could not make that up, wow pen pushers having a bad day.
  20. Just remember aerials and overhead power cables don't meet up. Keep a look out, be safe and enjoy our hobby.
  21. Yes I understand, good luck and happy driving.
  22. Can be frustrating, so if you have a registration, ie log book the registration number is on that, just paint it on the front and back in black and white. Or am I missing something.
  23. Not related but my great friend completed 2 tours of 30 operations on Lancaster's with 75 and 550 Squadrons. He was a flight engineer and aimed for half a mile to the gallon as the optimum for operations. Filling in a log of oil pressures, temperature and transferring fuel to keep the trim and weights even. Always admired him and had plenty of time for chat and doing jobs around his house, mainly fitting lights. He was Terry Murphy, my hand goes out to all in Bomber Command for a difficult job well done night after night.
  24. Many thanks arrived today, best regards Nigel.
