  1. The engine ID plate has : engine type; number; date, so that data would be useful. The nearside radiator side piece is from post war. In the absence of a chassis no to help pin down a date the following will help: The white enameled "driver instruction" plate in the cab changed in 1919, (Leyland Motors 1914 Ltd to just Leyland Motors Ltd ??) to can we have a photo of that, also a close up of the brake cross/compensating shaft support bracket. wheel base measurement The original cast alloy water jacket covers have a habit of corroding to nothing and yours have been rep
  2. Back issues of Leyland Journal and Torque are still available from Leyland Society. People put a lot of effort into research and publications so there is an unstated expectation that you join and play a part,. As they say nowt for nowt, the more so as you are a commercial operation. Image from web of model, chassis No and order number location, and they are often as feint as this. Sometimes they are on the near side rather than in the centre.
  3. Well bought. Maybe it is too good to use as a donor?? As you say a well executed modification.

  5. Can't tell you much without a chassis number, which will contain the model designation. Engines and other parts were shared with the trucks. Similarly engine no would be useful. 1929 was the time when there were huge changes happening in the Leyland model line ups, bringing in new technology.
  6. Mike Sutcliffe of the Leyland Society wrote up a description of all the Leyland 'RAF types' in Volume 1 of Leyland Journal which were in production between 1914 and 1931. The war time version was rated as 4 tons and modifications of design was ongoing from before wars start until in 1916 the design was 'locked in'. New designs started to be introduced in 1919. Virtually all parts bore the part no, either cast in or with a brass tag riveted on, The hubs for pneumatic wheels were introduced around 1923, first on the 2 & 3 tonners followed by the heavier models. Some of us have the complete
  7. Those look like ordinary common garden variety spring washers to me
  8. The mag drills really come into their own when using core drills enabling larger holes to be drilled. However I don't think the cheaper Chinese ones coming onto the market have a magnet as strong as Scrunt's.
  9. I would expect them to be CAV which at some stage was bought out by Lucas but maintained it's identity as the supplier for commercial vehicles. This in the era when they had the 'ears' same as acetylene lamps and could thus be retrofitted.
  10. was for while and it is now in England.
  11. The answer to the question "are there any survivors" is here;- I acquired this some years ago and as it took years on international forums to identify it the answer to survivors is likely to be that this is the only one. Considering that the trailers matched to the Crossleys were on singles they were probably considerably lighter than the American built ones which grossed between 6 and 12 tons. However the Freuhauf signature of rounded front, gooseneck, and fold back landing legs (bad idea) are apparent so either Taskers built the superstructure on imported chassis or built them under l
  12. The trailer looks like a Fruehauf which came in a multitude of variations. If so, they had air brakes which means the Crossley would have to have been fitted with a compressor. Or maybe not and they used the Crossley just to hold the front end up while on the boat as a space saving measure as they were so short. As can be seen the Crossley couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding and needed help from a bulldozer. The air braked Fruehauf trailers were more often seen pulled by 6x6 prime movers.
  13. The product description says it can be machined, and they have another similar product which you can build thicker.
  14. Do you have details of the auction; when, what agent etc
  15. I have just ordered this one. Haven't heard of it before. Available from www.pitstop.net.au and currently on discount.
